One of the most notable benefits of a career as an antiques dealer is having access to such broad style. It can also be the most challenging for the same reason. As I find designs that appeal to me with regard to our inventory, I find myself alternating paint colors and light fixtures, flipping from dark and cozy, to light and edited in my own home. There are so many options and directions I can take as I walk around the shop. Couple that with the vast amount of design influences seen daily, and the options are limitless! When I get in the research “zone” for these emails, it can almost feel intoxicating from the vigorous visual journey!
Heading to Italy on Tuesday with Shane who just returned from France with Bill Peace. They were “stuck” in Paris while we Atlantans were experiencing the joys of cabin fever due to the inclement weather. Trust me, I didn’t feel sorry for them either.
p.s. Thanks BP for capturing the suffering abroad so effectively.
