Alright, I’ll admit it.
I am a design stalker. Quietly and privately hunting down images from the comfort of my own home. Trolling for any morsel of goodness I can from my latest design obsession.
This week its David Weeks.
His work isn’t new to me. I’ve admired him from a-far for awhile, but I am now working on a project where it has become clear that a David Weeks piece is a necessity.

Sometimes I have a really hard time focusing.
I’ll go for weeks and everything is fine, and then bam! I just can’t get myself to sit down and write, no matter what I do. I’ve got a library of images collected on my computer and the task of just sitting down, writing a little something and then organizing the images in a pleasing way just seems like too much.
My older son went through this phase where all he would watch was Disney’s The Jungle Book and he was convinced that he was one of the elephants. It was pretty cute.
I’ve always been into elephants. They are the most wonderful color of gray, their pebbly skin drapes and sags over their bodies in such a beautiful way.
Elephants are everywhere!

I have 2 kids. As I sit here writing this the younger of my 2 sons, my 3 month old, is lying next to me cooing and gurgling away, enchanted with his own feet.
It seems that 2010 is another baby boom year. My older son who is nearly 4 was born in early 2007, also a baby boom year. As much as I think I am a rebel, I guess I went with the trend when it came to having babies.
With having babies comes that task of preparing our homes. Making them safe through baby proofing and using as many environmentally friendly and non toxic materials as we can – and creating a space just for baby. The nursery.
There are so many wonderful products available now, the baby industry is booming. Nurseries can be decorated in so many ways, the typical nursery rhyme characters and pale pinks and blues are not the norm anymore. Nurseries have become hip, bold and modern. Just like our babies.

Turquoise and Coral. Orange and blue.
I don’t wear much jewelry. Mostly I just wear a pair of diamond studs to dress up my otherwise boring and casual wardrobe of black, white and denim.
When I do have an occasion to wear a little jewelry, I generally choose from the healthy selection of coral that I stole from my mother.
As far as decorating goes, I find in my own home, I am drawn to different shades of blue, turquoise and green, with little pops of orange and even smaller hints of yellow.
Since blue and orange are complementary colors – opposites on the color wheel – it’s no surprise that they look so good together when used in interior spaces…
