Happy Thanksgiving!

In my travels, I’m always on the lookout for interesting architecture and design. However, I particularly love it when I find these sorts of gems right in my backyard. That’s just what  happened this past week on a visit to the Dallas Arboretum.

Many of the small buildings are covered right now in an array of gorgeous pumpkins and gourds. The buildings look straight out of the pages of a children’s fairy tale, but I also find the combination of shapes, colors, and sizes so beautiful and inspirational for the season.

As this is officially my first Thanksgiving living in Texas, it was a joy to see so many pumpkins and gourds so familiar to home back east.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
