Dear Kelly,

Here are ten reasons I love you:

1. You go BIG or you don't go at all

2. You don't apologize for your off beat designs

3. You really know how to mix your metals

4. You aren't afraid to explore in un-charted design territories

5. Your use of color is inspiring

6. You were quoted saying ''What shoes are to some women, chairs are to me." (I agree, along with mirrors, and pillows, and rugs..etc.,etc.)

7. Your so intricately involved with all the many details in a room

8. Your eye is so fine tuned

9. You bring a fresh perspective to interior design

10. Everything you touch is a art in it's self

PS. I aspire to a higher aesthetic because of your work you are one of my design heroes

Inspiring Images of the day...

Love the offbeat humored table scape, so fresh

I can get down with some turquoise chairs now, my gosh this is eye candy deliciousness

There must always be a Parisian flair in my book of design rules, so I added this pic to top off all this lovely inspiration

Side note* Dear Mr. Banker good design comes with a lofty price tag..... oh....,what's that you say? My money tree out back? Why yes I suppose I haven't checked there today, whew, glad for money trees growing in the backyard....

I have a slight love of anything french, so when I saw this fabric and later learned that it was a french designer by the name the Manual Canovas was I surprised? YES then I looked at the price it said 142 euros, to be honest I have no idea the current conversion rate but I think that means like expensive in US dollars, so just kidding right? Maybe I should go on deal or no deal and try to win some money cause....otherwise I'll dream on.  Ahhh, how I have dreamed and dreamed of becoming a textile designer.... some day, it's just something about patterns and florals that really get me excited, this being half the reason I love interior design as much as I do is do to great textiles! Hurray for good design, good french design

The Wedding is Over

And unfortunately today it feels as though I am over too, when all was said and done with my sister's wedding and my family went home I am stuck in bed for days exhausted and sick from all the pre-wedding/during wedding/and post wedding activities! Hosting is no easy job for two weeks! My house is a disaster and I feel drained with no energy to do anything about it (hence I am forced to live in a disaster while already feeling like a disaster) to sickness, boo to stress, boo to cluttered spaces...i will find my way through this in one piece though, rest assured.
