These are a Few of my Favorite Things …

We are surrounded by many opportunities to purchase and collect objects for our homes. Just think of all the online resources we didn’t have even 5 years ago!

However, what are the essentials from a design perspective?  Probably very different for each person.

Here is my list of design favorites in no particular order:

Artwork by Matisse – all of his work is amazing; when he could no longer paint he turned to these joyful cutouts and created a new art form. A good reminder to focus on what we can do – so inspiring!

Blue and White Pottery – I can’t even remember when I started collecting; timeless and classic. I never tire of it.

Porcelain

 

Antique Brass – metallics add a bit of glamor any space. Lamps, sconces, candlesticks, some of my favorites are from my Mom.

Potted Plants – nothing like greenery to make a home feel lived in.
