“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…
