Here is a picture I drew when I was 8 years old. It’s no Matisse, but I’ve done my two point perspective rather well considering I didn’t even know how to spell perspective. I don’t know why I thought windows had shelves though; but maybe they should? It would be a good place for indoor plants.

What attracts me to this space is the feel of playfulness that is both young and sophisticated. It evokes happiness and I like that. I also like the mix of ethnic and modern pieces because it feels like the room was collected over time. If you are one to worry that your style and interests change to often, keeping the staple pieces neutral and timeless is a wise choice because you can accessorize too match with no need of replacing the main furnishings.

I have a crush on window seats.
I love to read, I love to be cozy, I love to gaze out at a view, I love to hear the rain and watch it roll down a window, I love to take naps in the sun. Window seats are perfect for all of these, so naturally, I must love them to.
I am fond of the stump side tables as well. And the floral fabrics and slate grey (is that linen?) sofa.

When I am trying to fall asleep at night, it takes me between 1 and 2 hours, on bad nights its reached 4. What is going through my head is not the worries of tomorrow, or how I forgot to send that important email, but when I close my eyes my mind flips through made up interiors and design ideas like a slide show. Sometimes I have to get up and sketch it out so I remember in the morning. This color board is an inspiration from Easter’s sleep.

Minnu has recently launched their first collection of carpets called “Industrial” which is inspired by travel and the shifts in the industry and culture of each place. Each carpet is made from historic textiles over 50 years old and they come in 16 different colors, including the “All Nations” carpet, which is composed of all the nations colors. Each carpet is also customizable.
What draws me to these carpets are the deep, rich and vibrant colors as well as the intriguing history they hold. They would make such a beautiful focal point in a room, a piece of art on its own.
