Having successfully finished the design of The Manse, and completed the photo shoot last weekend – cue empty feeling. I find myself with some free time – time, by the way, I have been begging for, and now, I’m not at all sure I want it. As I write this I can hear my sister saying “don’t you go filling up that blank space with another activity”. I believe she excluded learning Portuguese, buying any more real estate, or ripping the deck off my boyfriend’s house. What a buzz kill – I mean concerned sister.
When I completed the project, I found that I was surrounded by a number of beautiful pieces that either didn’t end up working in the home – think massing, style, placement, and a number that were just plain wrong, even though in another setting they would be nothing but RIGHT.
That got me thinking. Here I am, storing and moving, and shuffling, and loaning, all these carefully curated – hold it – not everything is carefully, thoughtfully curated – some things simply steal my heart and scream “take me with you”, and so I do. While I have loved these things, used many of them (gently) it is time to find them permanent homes, where they will be loved and cherished, for longer than the shutter speed of the flashy camera, that my brilliant photographer wields.
So, together with my best friend – who has a penchant for collecting (with France being a favorite spot), and an incredibly talented, and dear friend that is an Interior Designer on Cape Cod, we have mined the depths of our closets, storage units, barns, back offices, and shops and are bringing together an incredibly eclectic, carefully curated (this time it’s true, I promise) collection of furniture, art, pillows, lighting, accents, nautical knick knacks and more, that are bound to delight, and shine light on your interiors.
