Things that inspired me today

I was looking over the new Ballard Designs catalogue that came in the mail today and was reminded how much I like Suzanne Kasler's work. Here are a couple of photos from her office. I love these drum shades, the round ottoman (I have a smaller version in my own office), the modern chairs on the one table and the softer chairs on the other. It is a space that is interesting but calm. The neutral colors keep it from being a distraction from working and creating. It is also orderly which is an important factor in a work environment for me. I am so happy that Ballard has partnered with her. You can see her Ballard collections by clicking here. Both photos are courtesy of designpublic.com.

 And another office (and designer) that I love ...

Did you notice that both offices have an orange box? That is what I love about white so much - it just begs for that great pop of color.

Here is another workspace designed by an amazing designer ...

This has my name on it! I can picture myself baking my Christmas cookies in this kitchen.

And finally, while I was waiting to pick my daughter up from the airport today I went in to Pottery Barn to browse and kill some time and came across this chair:

Calais Chair - Pottery Barn
Love it ... and not bad for $299! I can see it as a wonderful desk chair or around a round dining table. 

Tomorrow morning (Saturday), I'll be baking my severed finger cookies for Halloween (stay tuned, hopefully I will have some photos for tomorrow). I am planning on going to this later in the day:

Hello Sherri
White is not for me - I'm far to messy, it would never be clean - but it looks a fine place to work. Having said that my new house has a white kitchen, err.....!
Happy Halloween x pamela x

Hi Pamela, Yeah, I just have that weird 'clean' gene... I am never messy and that is why white works so well for me ;) Plus it helps to calm my brain! When are you going to post photos of your new house? I'm sure that you are one very busy lady! I am still thinking about all those boxes going up your stairway!
