“I have no recipe for how to combine things.  But you must be sincere.  And if you are, strangely, it will succeed.” – Andree Putnam, Interior Designer 

Today I thought I would simply post some of the things from one of my favorite websites (1st Dibs) that have inspired me over the past few days or (in the case of the John Dickinson tables)… things that I have loved my entire life! … Enjoy!

“I believe creativity is a childlike activity and to question too much may be irrelevant..” – Frank O. Gehry

Objects are more interesting when they have a little conflict and ambiguity. So, even though I like natural and organic, I like to use gold to luxe it up or to use dark iconic imagery, such as skulls, crosses or guns.  - Michelle Varian in Interview for Design Sponge.

Michele Varian is an unquestionably unique decorative home accessories store located on 35 Crosby Street (between Broome and Grand) in Soho.  Michele Varian, who describes herself as, “an artsy egghead who could spend hours looking at art books, drawing and reading everything in her parents library.” opened the store to showcase her collection of decorative pillows that she makes in her studio behind the store.  Every object seems to have been carefully selected or handcrafted by Michele.  Still, this whimsical store with its vintage charm seems to have something for everyone (and a wide-ranging price point to match).  If you don’t live in New York, not to fret!  Items can be purchased at her online store.  Below are just a few of my favorites.  Enjoy!
