Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

Studio Makeover – Phase 1

Studio Makeover – Phase 1 150 150 admin

“I don’t think people have enough fun with decorating.  It doesn’t always have to be so serious.  Design isn’t like marriage. You don’t have to commit for life.” – Ross Cassidy

BEFORE | EXISTING DESIGN STUDIO

This year I felt a burning desire to make some big changes.  First on my list was to begin the process of converting my design studio into a design space that showcases vintage finds, as well as furniture and custom upholstery at our Motor Avenue location.  It is a vast room  separated from the retail store in front, but always a curiosity to our customers. Daily, there would be folks peeking in and wandering  and wondering, “Oh wow, what’s back here?!”  The answer was simply to create an inviting and integrative studio that allows us to design products and create one of a kind pieces for our customers, while extending our retail store at the same time.  read more

There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.  ~Winston Churchill

Wild Horses…could very well take me away.  There is something so powerful about a horse and its fluidity.  Whether riding in the sunshine of  Topanga Canyon, or across the snow at Surrey Lane Farm, there is something so liberating when galloping free.

Humans began to domesticate horses around 4,000 B.C., and thus they began appearing in ancient art.  From Grecian Urns to modern busts, equestrian themed decor is something that has withstood the test of time.  We can’t resist anything that is horse related when scouting for vintage treasures.  The above painting is one of my favorite finds, ever! Happy Trails To You…Until We Meet Again…
