slow in the snow

I have not posted for a while.  Besides work, a blizzard, a trip to Arizona and then a snowboard trip to VT has kept me away from the computer for any long stretches of time.  
Here are some pictures of the slow to come together studio.

 Stolen idea from fashion designer Vanessa Bruno's Paris loft.

 My presentation board & table.

 Part of the still-to-be-organized materials library.

It was getting a little dark when I took this.  The overhead florescent lighting is atrocious.

Picked up these two chairs out of storage and they need to be reupholstered.  
Trying to figure out what to put on them.

I love this grey linen fabric, but I think I want a nubby cream colored fabric on these mid-century arm chairs.  I like to keep it all neutral so I can have an plain backdrop that won't interfere with any new project that comes up.

I also took this Balinese day bed-bench thing from storage.  The cushion is really beat up.  I wrapped it with some textiles that I picked up in Peru, but then pulled out a favorite Ralph Lauren stripe that I think would be a weird juxtaposition.  It might not work, but I'm just playing at the moment.

Maybe ticking is the way to go.  That'll make it feel like a real mattress.

Hope to have more soon!

February wishes

Hotels I hope to be visiting soon.  As in: this month!
Miami is an annual long weekend trip that I hope to continue.  While Art Basel in December would be ideal, I can't say that I have that routine worked out.
I just need a little inspiration and sun about now.
