I wish I could share my escapades in Scotland to explain my absence, but that would be a fantasy.
I wish I could say I did not break my New Years resolution about regular posting, but I did.
I wish I could say I have been using the winter to catch up on rest, but I haven't
Instead I have been racing around like a mad woman.......
The good news is that we have gained several new interior design clients, due to our decorating at the Christmas show house, that we are currently working with. I can honestly say they are all dream clients.
And the dreams began; Africa, Bali, Norway........ Narrowing it down to Scotland or the Galapagos Islands, I eventually chose the latter. "Heck, I can get to scotland anytime!"... I told myself.
Well, 7 years on, I have yet to go. But a girl can dream while reading a gem of a book.....
The rich texture and layers of history of each family adds a personal touch to this countries lore
The romanticism of "seeing" and knowing who went before you, must be, well, it is a feeling I would be unfamiliar with, as do most Americans. In rich detail, we are offered a glimpse of that lifestyle, the influences of the ages and the personalities that made these country houses homes and maintained them for upcoming generations.
The richness of nature provided food and sport. So taken into the very fiber of the Scott's being,
those pursuits are proudly displayed in their decor
An entrance hall, a study in Baroque and the six year odyssey towards completion
Moments of envisioning a Downton Abbey-esque kitchen, bustling with staff and intrigue. Oh the gleam of those highly polished copper pots.

A grand bed, a la Chippendale style
Sadly, my personal obsession is absent; just a minor addition I thought you might enjoy.........
