I am signing off for the weekend feeling very relaxed and chilled as I sit by the pool overlooking the bustle of the meat packers district. It doesn't get much better than this. I am feeling recharged and full of energy and enthusiasm to get back home and complete my clients home.
It has been a great break but I find it impossible to switch off. I have dragged my daughter around the Design and Decoration Building picking up fabric samples, paint shops to collect Benjamin Moore paint swatches and have been adding to my notebook new ideas inspired by what I have seen. I also have a strange assortment of pictures on my camera, from skyscrapers to pictures of tiles and chairs.
I have also been flicking through the many American home furnishings magazines I have bought since I have been here. I was quite taken by these images. Such an elegant combination of colours, textures and fittings. The villas was in Italy but they have sort of French Chateau chic feel to them. The chandelier and bath are amazing.
Anyway enough of the pool side ramblings. Much more exploring to do!
