It has been on the list for most of my life to someday live in Paris. I believe in visualization boards so let's call this blog just that- my visualization/inspiration board. As an interior designer, we do get to live vicariously through others, however, and at the moment I am working on a couple of projects that let me channel my French muse. So bon weekend and remember - as Audrey Hepburn so elegantly said- "Paris is always a good idea."

Nothing shouts summer like the texture of rattan, wicker, seagrass or for that matter natural wovens of any kind. Whatever that object may be, a straw hat, a rattan chair, a woven tote or a wicker chaise - it is always fresh, crisp and ever so graphically textural. These things forever evoke memories of long summer days and sultry summer nights. I hope you all are planning to spend a long, languid weekend  at the beach, on the lake or wasting the day away in a hammock on a mountain porch sipping a summery cocktail in a warm breeze for this 4th of July weekend!
