I was texting a friend recently about the fact that I have design ADD. I think a lot of it has to do with how many different/new things I see each day/week. I'm always scared to commit because something else might come along. It's something that I am going to have to get over and just start buying some things for our house... or it will be empty forever.
Here is part of how the design process goes for me. I'll have a room on my mind and just start copying and pasting things that I like onto a design board. And most of the time... the items can be totally random.
I started thinking about my foyer recently and have gone so many different direcitons lately. I have always liked the artichoke lamp from Stray Dog Designs and was reminded of it last week when I received a new catalog from them. It's a tad funky for me... but I've been liking some funky mixed in with some rustic mixed with some clean lines.
Here is the naked foyer... begging for some attention:
My first thought was an open bottom console with two simple iron/gold benches underneath... mirror... lamp... etc. (left side of board) But this weekend I found these neat stools from Bliss Studio... that are heavier looking that could look neat flanking a console (right side of board). So here is my design board as it stands today. I have both ideas on there... because i could easily go back to the left side design if that perfect console comes along!
We'll see how this room ends up!
