"The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life." William Morris
Have you ever watched a foreign film and see a house or room or village and say “I could live there”?
Have you ever wished for the key to the door?

and my computer room/studio …
The hardest thing for me is picking out paint color because what you see is not what you get. I take forever to choose a color. The last time we painted I took so long that dear Benjamin Moore changed the formula on me and the color on the wall did not match the original sample at all… My mellow ivory tuned out not soft and soothing like the sample but instead has an undertone of green, almost lime when the sun bounces off the snow and lights up the room. I am still looking for just the right white, the right grey and the right whatever..
I decided to push the paint aside and work on the fun part, the what else that goes into the room. I enjoy putting together inspiration boards; it is just so much easier today than when I had my first place many, many years ago. With a click of the mouse you can pull it all together, no more folders of pages ripped out catalogs….
I love so many types of style but I must say that William Morris has influenced me the most; it is old English country side that makes my heart go pitter patter with a touch of vintage French.
"Have nothing in your homes that you do not know to be useful and believe to be beautiful." William Morris
Was this Anthropologie bedding inspired by William Morris ?
|Georgia O'Keeffe The White Calico Flower 1931|
It could be a marriage of Morris and O’Keeffe.
A little something for the kitchen....
