Hey There !
Been thinking a lot about our trip to Sedona come Spring, planning side trips, galleries I want to see, natural wonders abound to, dare I say, hike. I am realizing that over the past year or so I have been pulling Southwestern inspired pieces without really realizing it. A stag horn here, and Aztec fabric there, leather, feathers, hair on hides. There is nothing I enjoy more than accessorizing. It can be the hardest part of finishing a room and we do get called upon to "fix" that situation by our clients. When we install a project (asked or not) we load up the truck with "stuff" and filter all those pieces in to really give that space a finished look and 9 time out of 10 they stay put, happy to stay. Styling is key and I believe it should be collected. One of the main reasons we are changing it up at the office is to be able to house all the accessories and such I continually find out there knowing they will end up somewhere fabulous. I still love to walk past areas in my house where I have strategically placed things I love and have discovered over the years.
I am really looking forward to another trip and hopefully another treasure to bring home. Typically you might think of all things red clay related - oranges, reds, pattern filled, "Mexican tile like" but when I think of the Southwest I think of adobe mudded walls, desert flowers, big windows with endless views. Touches of pattern, touches of reds, worn fabrics in a strong graphic print. Leather I love, especially a worn caramel color. Take a look at my version of Southwest inspired !
On a snowy day like today, it warms me up !
