The Evolution of a Room

     When faced with an empty room, I know the task can be daunting, even overwhelming.  I have a few suggestions that might be helpful. Look at your room as a blank canvas and what possibilities! All you have to do is this. First define its purpose. What will the primary use and function of the room. Then, find just one piece you love and start there! Shown here is my own room, a sitting room intended for conversation. I can honestly say that my inspiration piece was the pair of lamps, not typically considered the “foundation” pieces of a room! So I don’t always follow the rules, but I knew the look I wanted and waited for the right things to come along to add to it. I purchased the rug next. This room did not come together quickly. It was about a two- year project. But after waiting and building on the theme patiently, I was pleased with the result. The seater featured here, sat in my Grandparent’s dining room as long as I can remember and I am so fortunate to have it now sit right beside my dining room, accompanied by two very contemporary barrel chairs, which were the room’s last additions. I don’t mind telling you that hanging with original brass rubbings from a cathedral in England found in an antique shop, is a mirror purchased at a big box home improvement store marked for clearance! I love this room and I love everything in it! I can tell you where and when I acquired each thing and the story behind it. The best rooms are created this way, and worth the wait! They are to be long-enjoyed. So be encouraged, be inspired, and be patient with the room you’re working on!
