for surfing and learning that is. much of tonite has been spent gathering images for the walls in the booth, my last hurdle. it’s about 9:30 and i flew to ny today to prep a bit for the show. but it is valentine’s eve so i only have a little time left. just wanted to lay it out and get some feedback…thank god for the internet and thanks decor8 for having such a great reference that kicked it off and inspired me to work on it. now picking a palette, that’s another story.

the following are sites i fell into tonite. do you love walls like i love walls?!

Oh well there was one more thing. the highlight of my web night came when Maryam wrote to tell me she had one of Amy’s lights. Then she sent me link to her blog:

    I too love walls. I love the french grey with the huge white mouldings….all it needs is a dash of hot pink silk on a chair and some large stripe drapery ooh and some leopard. Best wishes at your show…I am sure it will be a smashing success!!
