the path of least resistance


(photo of Ruthie Sommers)

as usual i only have a sec but just wanted to pass along some things that crossed my path this afternoon…i just went where the superhighway took me and had a great ride. this is why i love being here!

in my last post i said that if you wanted to exchange links let me know that’s how i met Anne at annechovie who’s rekindled an almost lost art painting marvelous watercolors and interiors. i got lost in her world! (more pics AND an interview here at the inspired room)



her etsy shop led me to Style Court (who styled the chair in the first painting and uses it in her banner)

ANYWAY, she posted this: ‘A reader located about 20 miles North of New York City seeks a decorator with that Ruthie Sommers aesthetic. She says she has money put aside for a serious project but celebrity prices are beyond her means. If you know of a decorator who might be a good fit, please leave a comment’.

all this led me to Ruthie Sommers, (whose website is everything i want mine to be)! these pics were some of my faves of her designs. Ok so long story short, all of these pieces are sitting in palm beach right now!




and couple new friends:

    Well, you were cruising through blogland, wow! And you found some great people. I got pinged from this post, but I must’ve been booted from the group because I don’t see myself in the loop! :-)

    I was going to offer to add you to my links, per your previous post, but then I realized you are already there! I consider you a friend! xo

    Love the pink room. We had a pink kitchen in our old house. When we went to sell it our evil realtor took one look at it and said, “Well, of course, you will have to paint over that.”

    Amazing finds. I’m in love with those pink chairs. Where in Italy is the truffle hunter headed. I’m off to the Amalfi coast in July. No pigs in my plans more like pianos– I’m going to be music festival hopping.

    I’d love to swap links (actually I thought I’d added you ages ago).

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
    could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
