How It All Began

My home in the Berkshires

About seven years ago, my husband and I started to look for a second home. We ended up finding a place in the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts, mostly attracted to the natural beauty and year round cultural activities, museums and restaurants. Our kids went to sleep away camp there, and we have friends that we visited often. It happened unexpectedly, since we were looking at homes to rent for a summer and ended up buying!

Around the same time we bought the house, I became very interested in studying interior design.  Something about being out in all that natural beauty and making a nest for the two of us ignited a creative feeling that led me to take a design course at the Boston Architectural College-and then another and another. By the time I knew it, I had a certificate in Residential Interiors, started my own interior design business and the Berkshire house was published in the Berkshire Magazine!

At the same time back home, I became involved in the MFA Associates at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston as a flower designer. What a fantastic opportunity it has been. I have made wonderful friends and have learned a ton about flower design. In addition to our flower duties as an Associate, we work one shift a month at the museum's Sharf Information Desk where we interact with museum visitors. And every April we run the annual Art In Bloom event. The whole experience has been incredibly inspiring.

The new year is a time for introspection and new beginnings.  I consider myself a pretty private person and have never blogged before. However, I think I am ready to share what inspires me. Whether it's something special for the house or garden, flower design, my perspective on second home ownership, or other lifestyle topics  - if I think it's worthwhile I will share it with you. Until next time.....

This week was supposed to be the final reveal, but due to the recent hurricanes down South, many designers were having trouble getting shipments of products on time.  So the challenge was extended one week to accommodate them. Luckily I was able to source almost everything in Massachusetts, and I was fortunate that everything came in time for the photo shoot and final reveal.

Those who know me well know how much I love having company and setting the table. Today it's about outdoor entertaining. When I have guests in the summer, I love to use the melamine dishes and acrylic bowls I bought a few years ago at Pottery Barn. They are great because of their light weight and durability (and useful for young ones all year around). They come in many colors and patterns, and are dishwasher safe. Do not put them in the microwave, however! Here are a few of my favorites that are out there now!

It was a very full week of family fun, a health concern and healing, saying goodbye to one place and hello to another. A week with a disappointment and renewed focus. What got me through it all was thinking about an exhibit I just saw at the MFA in Boston.  It was about Matisse and his artistic inspiration - a beautifully curated exhibit of not only his paintings, but the objects he owned that he used in the paintings. Objects that he collected over a lifetime and incorporated in his work.
