To think late nights and all nighters while studying Art history and finishing up on art projects well
into the night does not hold a candle to the past few weeks at La Maison Fou.
I apologize for my absence lately, but it seems that for a while I was not only taking care of my family but there were numerous hours running my father to and from Dr. appt's...
The good news is that we are working to get all things under a controlled and functioning level.
Now, as for the rest of the last few several hundred hours.......
Family, work, volunteer, & being completely consumed!
3. To engross somebody or something - To fill homebody's mind or attention fully.
To my well evolved and sometimes trained eye, this is the section pertaining to design,work and creating new exciting treasures for my home,business and the homes of my clients.
As far as the design aspect of my days & (nights) ? an evolution in design and style which seems inevitably change and evolve whether you want it to or not.
I am famous for change and motion in and out of my home.
After 20 plus years together, Tom is never surprised as to what state things may be in when he arrives home at the end of the day.
I must say, that is what I <3 the most about him!
So, back to the consume situation; there apparently seems to be a movement within my four walls to simplify, create beautiful and simplistically rooms and doing all this within a working budget.
The challenge to integrate,coordinate and excavate along the way.
The other love of my designer life..French design, with a Swedish twist and a pinch of Belgium flair complemented by reworked,re purposed and restyled treasures.
While I pour through my latest design books, magazines and favorite blog sites I will leave you with these images on my new direction in my own home.
Have a look see at this panoramic view of rooms at CH
Great hotel in Belgium style
Love the tinted plastered walls, industrial mix of pieces and simplicity in the rooms.
Though simplistic, the detailed finishes on the pieces in the rooms, lines and textures speak to me.
Loving this room as well.The finish on the wall is similar to the fireplace finish that I completed at my clients home.

Divine Exhaustion and maybe a little eye strain, sensory visual impact overload!
