Noticeably Nautical

It must be all of the resort collections that have been launched - have you seen the Tory Burch Resort Collection ??? - but I cannot help but think about navy and white (or ivory) stripes. Classic.

These are awesome...

Now this is the kind of taxidermy I can handle...cruelty free. I am trying to decide which three I would narrow in on for a wall - because things do look good in odd numbers.

Simple yet so good...

As much as I love color I adore white. This room is so simple with only touches of color and then that framed pattern! Graphic. Simple. Good use of color. Stack of mags tied with a black ribbon...nice touch.

Wishful Thinking and Busy at Work

Image: lazybones

Of course I realize that it most likely that the shot was styled to convey someone relaxing and basking in the calm silence or something to that effect. However, based on how I feel this morning it conveys something totally different. Totally shot. I have been busy painting in my studio late the last few nights coupled with running all over New York yesterday doing some research for a client and visiting the showroom that represents the fabric line for the woman I work for...all while it was raining and not wearing my Hunters. It could be much worse, but I can tell you this morning my body is saying "stay in bed." So much so that I have already begun researching ergonomic desk chairs and stools for my drawing table. Any suggestions?

Happy New Year

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I finally broke down and joined Pinterest...totally addicted...which is what I have been doing the last couple of weeks along with spending time with family and friends. The Holidays were lovely and now to start a New Year and with new beginnings.
