These are a few of my favorite things…
My oldest daughter who is 14, can tell you how many times I have said to her,”There’s a great barn sale today out in the country and we can go get lost there for a little while.” or “I found a fantastic antique shop, let’s go on an adventure…” Beautiful greenhouses and flower markets- you could find me roaming around for hours. I’m not sure if it’s the hunt or the find that is the most exciting to me, but the inspiration that is brought forth by bringing in elements that contain a history or a story can be the beginning, middle or end of a project. Whether something is new or old, incorporating natural, salvaged and found elements can create beautiful form, texture and color in a design or space.
Living in southern Chester County has drawn me even closer to nature and to appreciating and understanding the beauty that surrounds us. Walking in the woods or driving through the rolling hills, you can see a sense of time gone by. The openness of the landscape and the changing seasonal colors and textures can be such a wonderful way to be able to create a shift in perspective that is so needed, especially in the fast pace of life sometimes.
