This entryway design is so inspiring to me. I'm constantly working on how to make heading in and out of the house a smoother transition.

 

How About Orange
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this laminated fabric. How fun and perfect for me! My toddler seems to be able to get peanut butter on just about everything.

Robin Luciano Beauty
Time to dream big! My dream is to build my own barn / studio space where I’ll teach classes and hold events. This is a good one!

 

Oh Happy Day
And while we're at it... how about another dream? To live in Paris! Does everyone have that dream? I know I do! I currently love living vicariously through this creative family who did it!
