Well lit and private

A little privacy was desired without blocking out the light. The solution a line of woven Roman shades for my clients beautiful Palladium windows. When fully drawn the shades disappear into a single break line. Shade provided by "Dress my window".

While attending the ARTBEAT FESTIVAL in Somerville Ma., I came across two artisans work I could not ignore. The first Rebecca Swiller Munn a potter of (Clay-ol-o-gy) at the MUD FLAT GALLERY. Beautifully handcrafted her work displayed a lovely collection of blue/green and brown pottery. They all reminded me of the ocean.
Ron Perssolano, a wood turner from Brimmfield Ma. made these amazing hollowed, pierced & incised vessels and more.... Smooth to the touch and visually tactile. The variety of wood finishes and materials make his work interesting and pure. A HOME IS MORE INTERESTING WITH A FEW JEWELS MADE BY THE HAND.

Boho is back!

I love the global influences that are saturating the textile and color world. Ethnic patterns and vibrant colors energize us and wake us up! Here is a "Suzanis" (needle work) from Uzbekistan that would give any space a well-traveled look. These beautiful pieces of handwoven art were made in Central Asia for the purpose of being gifted to a daughters' dowries. Today these embroideries are being admired in markets all over the world. Pillows, bed covers, table clothes and wall hanging are just a few ways one can incorporate these textiles that celebrate craftsmanship and tradition. Bohemian chic is colorful and tells a story...hard to ignore. This and much more available at Tessera for one of kind antiques!
