Bucket List

February 25, 2016

On your bucket list of things you’d like to see or do, can there be room for those things you’d like to have? I’m thinking yes. Like the Mies Van der Rohe Barcelona Couch. A classic. And, simply one of the most beautiful pieces of modern furniture produced.  Even with the Knoll Classics Sale going on now this piece is still a major investment. Sometimes you just need to bite the bullet.

Happy Accident

February 20, 2016

Meeting a friend for coffee the other day left me with a few minutes to kill, which  led me to poking around my phone…checking the weather, deleting emails, listening to voice mails. That accomplished I found myself opening notes ( which I have never used ) and finding a drawing app ( which I didn’t know was there). Hmmmm. While I’m never without a fine tip Uniball or Sharpie I am sometimes at a loss for something to doodle on when inspiration strikes. Good to know I can stop reaching for that stack of napkins.

Life in Black and White

February 15, 2016

When these February mornings look like a black and white photograph, some color is in order.  A little pink will warm things up…particularly if that pink is expressed in tulips. Simply arrange in hand, tie up with a piece of jute cord and lean in a simple glass cylinder vase, simplequietmodern style.
