It began when Barbara Barry introduced "Musical Chairs". The silhouettes of chairs featured on bedding, wallpaper, tableware and fabric fed my hunger for great design. And chairs really do that for me.
Thanks to Kelly, my design sister, I discovered Annechovie and recently acquired a print that not only includes a lovely chair, but some awesome interior design books stacked on the seat of the chair itself. It was a commission piece for Courtney Barnes of Style Court (a blog you should add to your Google Reader if you enjoy interior design). I've actually discovered a number of things with Kelly's influence, including Mothball Charlie on Etsy.
So, after the holidays, I lurked online until I discovered a deal too good to pass up on a collection of "Musical Chairs" decorative plates by Wedgwood.
And they are now hanging in the craft room where I like to surround myself with inspiration and pretty things.
I may run out of wall space very soon in this room but I will never run out of inspiration, thanks to technology, magazines, books, artists and designers. And it's one thing I can never get enough of.
May inspiration make your world a happy and productive one.
