Collected and Natural..

This space has a wonderful collected natural feeling, it doesn't feel forced or planed.  
Just relaxed and special.  

Are you a collector? 
What is your best find?
I have a few very special pieces but they all have a story..  they should always have a story.  
Some of my favorites are artwork.
I purchased my first Eric Zener pieces when I started working
on my own as a designer for the first time.

They are very special to me because they are symbolic of  the adventure that I was starting and I love them to this day!

Hi there! I was happy to read yesterdays post on the french hotel with the cool chandy. I hung up my vintage french chandy yesterday and I think it is much like the one on your blog post. I linked it up to your post too. Take a peek! http://maisondecor8.blogspot.com/2011/05/french-beaded-chandy-is-up.html

J'adore the first photo. I love natural elements. I have clipped branches off trees and bushes and brought the outdoors inside. Fresh, new and lovely!

It's beautiful - I could really see myself living with this decor rather than the all white look! Great ideas for e to add to my portfolio - THANKS

Cristina- It's hard to pull off a collected look isn't it?

My best find is a carved church by my great-grandfather. It is such a treasure to me. Here's a post where you can see it: http://applesandrubies.blogspot.com/2010/12/pure-style-home-holiday-inspired-lunch.html
