Waiting for gesso to dry…

While waiting for the gesso to dry on a few of my canvases, I decided to spend some time in the interior design world. But in actuality, it’s more like the shopping world since I’m cruising around the internet looking for great finds. It is great either way!

Here’s what inspired me today:
Aquatic bowl

Aquatic Bowl at Crate and Barrel – $109.95
Glass art has long been a favorite of mine. This artistic bowl reminds me of glistening tropical waters – perfect for summer!


aruba turquoise fabric
Aruba Turquoise Easy Care Fabric by the Yard at Ballard Designs – $24.00
Working perfectly with the glass piece above, this outdoor fabric is vibrant and cheery and, in my opinion, would be a great addition to any sofa or chair near a pool.


marrakesh melon pendant
Marrakesh Melon Pendant at Ballard Designs – $149.00
The shape of this pendant lamp has me intrigued. Not only would it be wonderful accenting a covered outdoor patio, it would be a great talking piece inside the home. The strong lines and curvy femininity of the lamp really draw me in.


Tang Horse
Tang Horse at Ethan Allen – $125.10, sale
These horses are and will forever be my favorite pottery pieces. I long to own an original, but for now, this little gem would work well accenting a bookcase, shelf or side table.
