"The Boy's Room . . . "

Terrie Hall, Colorado


I hope everyone had an amazing new year's celebration.  We were up in Lake Tahoe for a few days enjoying the beautiful scenery (but, lacking any form of snowfall this year . . . yikes!).  But, now - safely tucked back into the office - and making plans for a great 2012.

The new year is a great time to make some updates to the house.  With all the holiday decorations coming down - it's easy to see the house with a fresh eye and with a new perspective . . . and as I noted on facebook the other day - "The removal of the 90 odd feet of garland from the drawing room REALLY kinda opens the space up!"

But with the front rooms done - this weekend - I think I'm gonna tackle some updates on my bathroom.  Maybe rehang a few pieces of artwork.  An inventory of the medicine cabinet.  And it's always a good time to order fresh set of new monogrammed towels.

So . . . if you're in the same kinda mood . . . here's some inspiration . . .

"Falling . . . "


Before we fall headlong into the frantic pace of the holiday season (and I'm including Thanksgiving in that list of holidays!) - I could really use a moment of rest and introspection.  I know that personally, I'm still organizing my plans for the next few weeks.  What parties am I going to?  What parties am I hosting?  Can I squeeze a quick trip to NY in there somewhere?  And if so, what am I going to pack for such an exciting, last-minute adventure?

So as a flurry of question marks seem to spin about me - there's always the respite - and the solace - of great design and impeccable style.

"Keep Calm and Free Associate . . . "

The couch of Sigmund Freud


Get comfortable on the little sofa.

Clear your mind.  

Just let it wander.  

And for heaven's sake . . . 
Stay calm.
