ok, wait...

how did the first work week of 2011 slip by in the blink of an eye? if the whole year goes this fast, i should start planning new year's 2012!

and how were your holidays? ours were busy, busy, busy (a good thing!)

installing roman shades:
simple burlap roman shades for a bachelor's craftsman cottage. wall paint is benjamin moore's jamestown blue.
and shopping for carpets:
stark carpet's 'antelope' is the decorator's version of a kelly bag- a chic classic that never goes out of style...

and preparing for client presentations:
hopefully the millions saved on a DIY franz kline will help to offset the cost of a pair  of amazing vintage cast metal brutalist lamps from the always fabulous inventory of lewis trimble, one of our favorite sources for vintage and antiques.  our modern take on a classic chesterfield sofa, shown in the above sketch, will be covered in a kid friendly indoor/outdoor velvet from holly hunt.

so how has your first week of 2011 been? it's gonna be a great year, i can tell already!

Are you doing the DIY Franz Kline? Can't wait to see this room when done and in color. Those lamps are crazy.

Oh, I love when I see pictures of Stark carpet online!!
The Antelope is one of my favorites - is that the new wide wilton goods, or the axminster?

Happy New Year!!

indoor/outdoor velvet? holy cow, I didn't even know that kind of thing existed! Does it cost a fortune?
