Home Office Envy




The past few weeks I have plotted and planned my new home office.   I love this design and layout from Pottery Barn which would fit perfectly in my little room on the third floor of the house! With all those drawers and cubbies, I might be able to keep my resolution to organize my office.  I love the texture of the rattan chair and the simplicity of that light fixture.

Classic Design



 I am in in love with this exquisite "Bar Suit"  in the Costume Institute, at the Met.  I am drawn to the chic simplicity of this 1947 design from the House of Dior.

Monday Musings




 In my quest to replace some aging furniture and redesign a space in my New England home, I discovered Paste. These clever and unique collage designs created by artist, Denise Fiedler are just the inspiration I need for my room.  Perhaps I don't need new furniture, but a new view from the comfy chairs I already own.

Fabulous Faux


Artist, Clare Potter, creates these beautiful porcelain flowers and floral arrangements. Her finely detailed designs are so realistic I had to take a second look! You can see more here in one of my favorite inspiration books, Simply Flowers, by Barbara Milo Ohrbach. Follow Me on Pinterest

Inspiration in Reclaimed Wood

This beautiful reclaimed wood caddy discovered on Etsy would be the perfect way for me to organize the tools which are so often scattered on my workshop table at the store.

Monday Musings

I love these buckets of notes from Tumbalina. Since I am constantly hunting for gift cards when I find the perfect gift, these fit every occasion, and they are neatly packaged in a bucket that keeps them organized. And now we carry them at Perennial Designs!

Inspired to Update

I can't think of a better way to update my tired furniture than with beautiful hardware
like these knobs and pulls from Anthropolgie. The only problem will be deciding what to choose!

Inspiration Color for Spring

I would love to come home to this room, (featured in Country Living). I have always wanted a beautiful stone fireplace and this would be perfect. The apple green and citrus accents might be my inspiration colors for Spring.

Inspiration in Vintage

I have wondered what to do with all the "vintage" albums I've collected. I love this idea from Etsy which just might help me with my resolution to organize my desk this year.
