Every home-buyer has a different need when looking to buy a house. I wanted a house in a good neighbor serviced by major freeways and highways, not too far from stores and a ton of architectural features. I found one with mansard ceilings, some odd-shaped windows, natural light and a good size yard for cultivating some food. Well, the yard was sunburned and no plants in sight. I had some serious garden work in front of me to let it come alive the way it is now. The rest had potentials and I took full advantage.
I found inspiration everywhere from nature, fashion, architecture, antiques and my own travels. Creating my cocoon was not a difficult search. I looked through photos of my gardens and instantly I knew my bathroom had to be yellow and my bedroom ocean blue, which is my essence color and it agrees with my zodiac sign.
Red is my passion color. Some of my red fabrics gave me the inspiration for textures and shapes in my bedroom.
The Marsala color on this shirt inspired me to paint my closet in the Marsala liqueur color.
This field of wild flowers inspired me to create the Parisian style lamp.
This bathroom corner looks pretty cozy.
Be attentive of your surroundings and surprise yourself. Ciao,
