I've got some GREAT articles for you...I'm behind on my reading so a few of these articles are from last week.
~Must read: How to Tell if You're Overpropped from the New York Times last week. Please go read it and let me know what you think. I don't want to comment too much here before you get a chance to read the article.
The article will really make you think about your personal style and style philosophy (if you have one - it's okay not to have one defined but I'm sure you gravitate towards certain elements). I've never been the type of person to follow trends quickly - clothing, home decor, technology - I've just never hopped on board quickly or passionately. I'm sure I'm the owner of things that would be considered trendy but overall I choose and select things for me, for my home, and for my family.
Here is a recent image that I pinned - it's a bedroom designed by Tom Scheerer who I've posted about here before and I really admire his work and his eye for design. His work blends classic elements and fresh color palettes - there is always a feeling of comfort to his designs. You could picture yourself living in his rooms.
~ I was following some of the BlogFest Twitter feeds the past few days, and it seemed like it was a wonderful event with discussion panels, a tour of Kravet, a tour of the Kips Bay house, and so much more. I can't wait to read the take aways from some of the attendees that were there.
~ If you're ever in Philadelphia, in addition to shopping or having lunch with me, a must see is the new Barnes Foundation building. It is brand new and rather controversial opening to the masterpiece art collection of the late Albert C. Barnes. I haven't gotten a chance to read anything from the Inquirer yet but the Wall Street Journal had two excellent articles yesterday: Saving Dr. Barnes Vision and The New Barnes Shouldn't Work-But Does.
I don't think I've had that many articles for you in a while. Enjoy!
3-day holiday weekend - woo hoo!! Hope you have a great weekend whatever you have planned!
