Earlier this week I had to travel to Orlando for work. While not exactly design-inspired, the city best known for its amusement parks managed to provide just that.
I have this weird thing with doors. I don’t know how or why it started, but I somehow get inspired by them. Today I discovered So Haute which had a great picture of a pair of doors in Kensington, London; so I’m building on that for today’s post.
It doesn’t get any cuter than this… maybe I should move to London 🙂
The beauty in these doors is in their history… these are the front doors to Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama where Dr. Martin Luther King served as pastor and where the Montgomery Bus Boycott was organized
Eccentric beauty in Palm Springs… I wonder if my husband would approve of a powder pink front door?
This may seem like a simple rustic door, and in fact it is, but it happens to be a door at the Audelessa Winery in Sonoma, California where my now-husband proposed to me 🙂
I took this picture on my honeymoon… one of the many magnificent sets doors at Wat Phra Kaew (the Emerald Buddha temple) in Bangkok, Thailand
Today my sister and I decided to hit the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It was the first time for both of us… so fun and so overwhelming.
My sister has discovered an obsession with turquoise, so she tried out this chair…
…but no purchase
I’m looking to re-upholster my dining room chairs so we stopped at a fabric booth…
…but no purchase
Finally, we found a piece that inspired us… a vintage electric guitar case
We’re thinking of turning it into a coffee table, but the possibilities are endless. You’ll have to check back often to see what we make of our treasure 🙂
Today is the official launch of homerandruth, my blog about design, décor and all things lifestyle. Homer and Ruth are among the two most influential people in my life and this blog is dedicated to them.
Homer was my grandfather. He was a vibrant, successful and handsome man. He loved his work, and he loved his family, but he never took himself too seriously and had a passion for enjoying life.
homer is all about home design and décor. Through homer, I’ll share my take on interior design, presenting elegant and beautiful ideas but always with an air of playfulness and fun.
Ruth is my grandmother. She is the single most beloved woman in my life. She’s the embodiment of great style, unrelenting kindness, and unwavering courage and strength.
ruth represents all things lifestyle. She’s multi-dimensional and is anything and everything that inspires me. ruth has no constraints; she is not limited to one style, one passion, or one genre. She is delightfully complex, and may surprise you time to time.
