spring design board

I enjoy the view from here. As I sit in my new studio I enjoy watching people from the street gaze at the design board I stuck in the front window. Will anyone ever really buy gold plated wall paper cut out into over scale circles? Probably not. But it’s fun to look at (!) along with magnetic wall coverings, circus inspired embroidered fabric and paint colors that inspire spring to “bring it on!”

The new showroom and studio windows also look out onto the majestic and one and only Lake Superior. The studio encases beautiful upholstery, hot rolled steel top tables and a Barbara Berry light fixture, but also a cracked statue and vintage artwork of three past Kentucky Derby winners that I picked up from a dealer years ago. I had put it aside thinking it wasn’t “good enough” for this beautiful new space. My assistant Lynn insisted I put it up, reminding me to practice what I preach. If you love it, use it. Quit worrying about what other people think. If your space reflects who you are, that’s the best gift you can give yourself.

Go ahead and get inspired by all those crazy things in magazines and design studios, then go home and create your own interpretation of these trends. Style your own design board and don’t be afraid to let the sky be your limit! Suzi
