The New Year

The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

—Marcel Proust

Often times we are quick to throw out, get rid of or replace things that no longer serve their purpose. But perhaps the problem lies with the object's observer, rather than the object itself. As a decorator, I love the challenge of finding beauty in the mundane, and in repurposing something that has long since lost its charm.

This year, as I embark on this long-awaited venture, one that was born out of passion and curiosity, I continue to find inspiration in my surroundings and vow to help others achieve the same.
