A few weeks back I was feeling a little out of sorts.. a little lost at the beginning of the year, it always seems like a time when you should be overly motivated, ready to run out of the gates and get some things really taken care of, make changes and plan for the year ahead. Well, I was in a total funk and kinda bummed out. On a Sunday morning I had a chance to take a little time to myself and was wandering around in the land of the blogs, I came across Lost in Arles a blog written by Heather, I spent well over an hour reading her posts and looking through her beautiful photos. I finally felt like myself, I felt inspired and awake for the first time in what seemed like a month (the holidays really took a lot out of me this year). I am ready to go, ready to be inspired, ready to travel and ready to take on the challenges of the year ahead. Maybe I will visit France in the Fall this year, I know I will be working on stream lining my time and energy into projects that I really want and need to do, and maybe just maybe I will be taking a few more leaps of faith this year.
I wanted to thank Heather and thank all of the bloggers that take their time posting so many fantastic images and inspiration!
We headed up to LA for a quick day at the Mart last weekend and found a lot of fun goodies! I feel in love with the new lamps from Jamie Young. The glass pieces are amazing! I want the lamps in the first picture, I just love the color and texture..
Eloquence is always one of my favorites and they had a new larger showroom which was so nice to see everything together. (note: my Vespa is still available)
We headed upstairs to Bassman Blaine a great way to see some of my favorite lines in one place. That art is perfect for a job I am working on! This is just a little peek. I know it is not the same as going to New York or Atlanta (they are on my list for later this year) but it still does inspire!
Lately I have been thinking about interiors (big surprise there) and interior photography. I was looking through Ashlee Raubach's blog and saw this picture.. which I love. Ashlee took our family pictures last fall and she was amazing! I cannot wait to have her photograph some of my work and my home when I get ready. The light in this picture makes my heart race and that table makes me want to scream I love it so much. I love the way she uses the light in the space and the softness that comes across in the photos.
Anyway, I am curious have you had interior photographs taken? What do you think of different styles?
I have been dreaming of going back to France for a few weeks now. I wish I was able to go for the Maison & Objet show, my dream really. Maybe for the Fall show... but I have been looking through my pictures and realized that there is a lot that I did not share with you. These are just a few pictures that I took inside the Louvre, I was a little giddy in there (my shoes were killing my feet and I think I may have lost it for a little while). I took photos of things that made me smile as you can see!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with things that make you smile!
