"More Cream than Coffee . . . "


It's a new year (well, it's been a new year for several weeks now, but as previously mentioned in this same space, I've been kinda busy - as in totally busy.)  And one of my favourite aspects of the new year is the new business that always seems to greet me as January begins.  Something fresh.  Something bright and clean.  Something like coffee - but, with a lot of cream.  Heavy cream.

So most of my days are filled with combing through new tile samples, carpet samples, and (my favourite) tons of textile swatches.   Searching through lighting catalogs.  Shopping for bathroom fixtures.   Always focused on my task.  Always on the look-out for something unexpected.

Love your space best! I hear the piano!
@Victoria -

For some reason, I've been very lucky - there seem to be pianos in a great many of my projects! And that one is especially beautiful! I've played it on several occasions.

Love all these beautiful creamy images - including your beautiful design- I'm a sucker for a large check! There's also a lovely mini version of the Ralph Madison Ave. store nearby here in Greenwich - it's also gorgeous just on a smaller scale. And my little coffee shop makes the most beautiful coffees like these - heavy on the cream please!!
