"Going Back to the Well . . . "


Greetings,

As is almost always the case around here . . . there's a LOT going on.  A few project that we are just finishing up and getting ready to photograph . . . and couple of homes that are RIGHT in the middle of the process - furniture being re-upholstered, drapery just ready to installation . . . and an amazing new project that is just about ready to break-ground for a multi-year remodel.  Whew.

And because it's not using ALL of my creative juices . . . I'm playing around a bit with my own home these days as well.

Now, when I'm working with clients - the design process is much more linear than when I'm working on my own home.  To say that my personal design process is 'fluid' is even an extraordinary understatement.

But, whenever I need to make sure that I'm still 'on target' and haven't veered to far off the mark - I like to go back to some of the first images that inspired the space.  And truly images that I've been infatuated with for more than a decade.

The image above of David Linley's first London apartment is one such picture.  Dark.  Lush.  Dramatic.  Layered.  Comfortable.

All good.

Cheers,
Scot

Cannot wait to see your projects completed. I have no idea how you manage to juggle projects, I am simply creating a guest bedroom in my own home and finding it stressful enough.

Any hints welcomed :)

Generally I adore your aesthetic, but I disagree with the artwork being "comfortable", although I do agree with the ret of the adjectives. I would hate an oversize image of an animal being torn apart alive dominating what is otherwise a retreat. In my humble opinion...
