Now I’m enjoying the most recent interview over at Balustrade and Bitters with Kishani Perera. I love the way she uses color!

OK, as soon as this laptop battery dies, I’m going to go clean out my desk and reorganize my inspiration board!

Yesterday I was cruising Tumblr, and one of my favorite rolls to follow over there, my farmhouse, had posted an insanely eclectic living room that made me very curious. It turned out it was designed by Gary Spain Design and I just had to see more. While I cannot seem to find a thorough “about” column, the pictures tell a lot. Gary Spain design’s service include not only interior design, but set design and styling as well. I thoroughly enjoyed going through each slideshow on the site, and there are a wide range of styles included. Here are a few more favorites (it’s hard to choose):

He mixes in bold art and classic busts:

Arranges a perfect David Hicksian tablescape:

Creates serene and beautiful work areas that blend right into any room in the house:

And mixes color, art, and modern to perfection. Wow.

The July issue of House Beautiful is a must-have; I just received it today and they really knocked it out of the park. There’s a house decorated entirely by Albert Hadley for a client he decorated for forty years ago! There’s a Miles Redd spread, there’s a focus on small spaces, there’s a fuchsia foyer, there’s a really fun step-by-step feature about an interior designer re-doing a living room in one day, and there’s a great spread of the coolest wastebaskets on the market. This issue made my entire subscription cost for the year worthwhile.
