cracking the whip

hi guys! i have only a milisec before my computer dies and/or claudia forces me back to work. we have lots to prep for tomorrow but i wanted to do a quick post.  claudia helped me arrange the shelves and liz had the idea to hang the chandi by a dowel between the bookcases.

i’ve been wanting to do this wall and especially the nooks for so long but just couldn’t motivate. sometimes it takes friends as we all know! i took a couple vignettes but have a lot more to fit into this day so gotta run.

more soon, have a great day!

    I LOVE it!!! Okay, seriously these images are going to spread like wildfire~they are so stunning. I love the elements of symmetry, the elements of color, nature, glamour, and the unexpected. These are going on my Pinterest if that’s okay.

    Bon travail à tous!

    I just showed Conor the photo, and he asked if it was in France, he said it looked very French, like it was in “Paree”!

    Looks great.

  16. Merillion replied:

    Love your desk area and the shelves – looks great!
    (and the chandelier)

    Don’t wear yourself to a frazzle, & Good Luck with everything.

    How clever to suspend the lighting from a dowel between the bookcases.
    What a team to create “Wow!”

  20. Rebecca Grace replied:

    This is fabulous! What an inspirational space for creative work. I’m getting so many ideas — at some point this year, I need to to reclaim my studio, reorganize, purge, and make it more of an inspiring workspace instead of a landfill… :-) I’m going to be shamelessly copying some of your ideas, too, especially the wallpaper, because I know I have odd roll ends of some gorgeous wallpapers up there, buried in fabric and other decorating debris because they were too beautiful to throw away. Thanks for sharing!

  21. Mom replied:

    I like it, too!

  22. Fabulous Finds Studio replied:

    Fabulous! What more can I say?

  23. Heidy replied:
