"The Grass is Always Greener . . . "


Sometimes design inspirations come from the simplest places.  It can be just as easy as opening your front door.  And then opening your eyes.

And behold . . . .

Love the Hampton residence! I remember getting a Christmas card from the White House many years ago that featured the Green Room all decked out for Christmas.
Great inspiration out your front door.

inspiration is everywhere, one just has to have the ability to "see"

and you scott possess that ability, in spades

That Hampton project will always be one of my favourites!

You are so right Scot.
Our eyes can be open but we really need to see what is in front of us! Good observations.

True that inspiration is all around us, but one has to be open to it. And talent such as yours makes it happen. LOL The Hampton residence is exceptional. Do we get to see more of the inside sometime? Thanks for sharing the beauty! ~ Sarah
