The Rustic Chic Office

What components comprise the Rustic Chic office?  Well, in no particular order and by no means is this an exhaustive list:  old beadboard walls painted in flat-finish white, sisal carpet, interesting collections of things that inspire you, modern art, a papa bear wing chair with a flat weave rug “runner”, traditional pedestals, a painted trestle desk with a thick slab of glass, an idea board full of various flotsam and jetsam that you find interesting, a clanking radiator that keeps you company, tons of design books, burlap roman shades made for a dime, faux bois, baskets filled to overflowing with fabrics and . . . well, hopefully you get the idea.

I Can’t Give You a Turkey Dinner. . .

. . . but maybe a few feathers will do.  Sorry for the silence as of late.  Will pick up the pace after the holiday.  Have a good one!

Old Paint

This was such a quintessentially bucolic and autumnal scene.  Old Paint standing and looking over his fence and, like the rest of us, enjoying a beautifully crisp weekend day.

Dish It Up!

Admit it, washing dishes is just not much fun.  Reading about the history of dinner plates and their myriad of styles and colors is terrific fun, however!  And so is the new book entitled “Dish – 813 Colorful, Wonderful Dinner Plates” written by Shax Riegler, the features editor at House Beautiful magazine.  In “Dish”, Shax explores centuries of dinner plates from olden days to the present and, with beautifully simple photography by Robert Bean, showcases rarified and humble examples.  They’re all pieces of gustatory history, items that we usually take for granted.  But you’ll never look at your plates in the same way after reading this entertaining volume.

Look Up!

A grey day but lo!  A tree is ablaze dressed in all its variations of red and orange on this fall day.  This showy specimen was so intense it just wouldn’t or couldn’t be ignored.

Corny

Fall, to my eye at least, presents us with the most nuanced color schemes of the year.  And perhaps Indian Corn, more than any other seasonal offering, is unmatched in showing how nature melds colors together in unexpected and beautiful harmonies.
