///Brandon and I met when I first moved to Seattle about 3 years ago and he has been a great friend. We have, over time purchased pieces from estate sales and antique malls for his various apartments...he's a good shopping partner. Two months ago, Brandon decided to move right down the hall from me and again we were challenged with re-using all of the great pieces we had collected. It can seem like college some times having a friend that close and it's really nice.
///The most recent addition to his place was this chest of drawers that we painted a bright kelly green of my choosing that mimicked his sofa throw. A real dude's place. Nothing too fussy, but full of style.
///Some inspirational reading from the past week. Steven Gambrel's new book has me speechless...yes speechless. Just read it. I was even more excited to pick up this little guide to Edinburgh where I will be spending a few days this July before heading to London. Cannot wait!
///A lot of the photos I take are merely to prove the point that many times the journey is WAY better than the destination and to slow down a few notches and take a look around where you may have just cruised by. There is so much to see. Go see it.
///Rug combo in a clients living room installed this past week.
///The perfect rug was also found for a master bedroom project. The headboard and roman shade fabric shown in the corner. Chloe Sevigny's New York apartment by David Cafiero was a big inspiration for this space.
///Finally, the 150 yr old Indigo dyed ikat fabric I brought back from Paris has found a home in the way of 4 giant sofa pillows for a clients living room.
///A sneak peek into another projects reading corner.
///The late spring lighting in Seattle is constantly changing and interesting. These past two shots are from morning walks.
///Another great find this week was from a great new shop here in Seattle called Sheridan + Company. A set of antique chinoiserie plates that I will use for a plate wall in a clients bedroom. Jason, who owns the shop is just the sweetest, and I look forward to seeing what new stuff he brings in.
///...and of course coffee.
