Friday Favorites

Friday means fun and favorite things to me. Just knowing that soon you’ll have a couple days off automatically boosts my spirits!

Here are a few of my favorite images and inspirations.

What a fun way to create a focal point in the room and make your  bed’s headboard at the same time. This work of art could have been created with paints or Venetian plaster.

I saw this charming set of cafe doors in Paris, which inspired me…

In France, this is a must see store to visit for me. I love their print ads!

In the book, French Style at Home by Sebastien Siraudeau, I saw this damask settee and

actually based this finish on it for a living room. Six panels of varying widths were completed and framed (frames are not on yet here) with molding.

My favorite way to choose a finish for a client is to have them bring me their inspirations;  I’ll take it from there and dream and experiment till we nail it!
