Oh, How These Scenes Inspire Me!


Anna of Black & Spiro...I tell you, I will visit this delightful boutique in person one of these days! Anna has put together another simply gorgeous display. The large scale butterfly fabric hung in the window is just a delight and sets off the bright turquoise lampshade perfectly.





The divinely pretty work of designer Katie Rosenfeld has also recently caught my eye. Have you been introduced to her and her work before? If not, visit her here!

What has inspired you lately?

    I must she that she has a way with color that is truly unbelievable.

  13. I love a well done room or shop that features bold prints and cheerful colors. With the all white movement afoot (which I also love), it's nice to see a bit of color sometimes!

    I am lucky enough to live 15 mins from Anna's shop. We love popping in and perusing all her fabulous things. When you come to Oz, make sure you let us know and we will take you out for a coffee and a day of shopping. First stop - to see Anna at Black and Spiro.
