Soooooo much rain. We are here on the East Coast soaked, and the mood is sad and dreary. The weather pressure is a real problem for we sinus people. I am painting and sorting, at least some work is getting done. Another day of this I think.
I have been in the process of updating my site here, and this has given me some time to look around for ideas and all. I found this great insiration board and blog Olive and Joy, very inspiring. Planning and implementing changes, especially where technoloigy is concerned, takes some time, I really need to finish this. Enjoy and stay relaxed and dry.
It is getting to be a crazy summer. Being so busy with the extreme heat really wears you down. Some evenings I just have to sit. But I still need to push on to the new designs and business plan. This blog is being updated and I look forward to many new things, for me, coming in the fall.
A few weeks ago we rearranged our bedroom, it is a much better layout. The room is still very basic and one of the main things missing is a headboard. I just need to decide on something-SA can build anything, so I just need to design something. This room board is what I came up with, it is my usual color scheme, but I love all the shapes and texture.
Spring cleaning and all is going on in the bedroom. Trying to create a nice relaxing, sleeping place. I seem to be inspired by the cool colors of nature.
There is an interesting contest going on over at Oliobord, it is a Mid Century Modern room design challenge. This is one of my favorites from Palermo, remember all the paneling and avacodo green.
I wish I had more time to create boards. i am working on some to use for my projects, something I can really use.
I have thinking of bringing back this regular post on Mondays, and while looking around on line found this “board” site Olioboard. You can put together collections or design/planning boards for all your projects and spaces. I know Pinterest is going crazy right now, but this site is great as well-even more places to use your time. I think I could use this in my design process. What do you think?
This is my studio office board.
I tend to fall in the trap of over planning, especially that we have a new year and all the experts and calenders, and filing systems come out to tell us how to get everything together for the new year. I have been in the inspiration/planning mode for a while. My design seem to work out best in a more free form way when I actually start to work. So, I just made a mood board and used that for my color/fabric inspiration. Now I am going to let the actual pieces flow from that. More images here.

The web sit crashed last week and everything was lost. I am trying to get back in the swing of posting again. Computers a love/hate relationship.
It is also time to plan for new designs (for spring next year), it gets a little mixed up since I am working on current items to send out while still keeping the new design ideas going. This is a mood board I did a little while ago, and it is still a good reference for new colors and motifs.
