Chasing the Light

Ugh.  I'm still full.

What a wonderful holiday weekend!  But I am the first to admit I have over indulged and it isn't even December yet!  I'm feeling heavy and stuffed and my feet are dragging.  Add in the darkness that settles into the corners of our days here in New England as early as 3:00 in the afternoon and I might as well skip the rest of the holidays and go to bed from now until June.

Thankfully, I found some really inspiring photos this morning from a fantastic photographer, James Merrell.  The spaces are light-filled and airy – both things I can appreciate in my post Turkey-day stupor.

 

Can we talk for just a moment about that installation above the fireplace?  I feel like I have seen it somewhere before but I can't put my finger on it.  Wherever the trend stems from, I absolutely adore it.  it combines my love for everyday snapshots with an unexpectedly simple display concept to create a larger piece that is modern, fresh and yet still personal.

 

 I can't help but think I would be that much more productive if I could sit at a desk with minimal distractions and invigorating light like in the wonderful work space above. 

This cheery place really woke me up and got my senses going this morning.  I appreciate that the rooms have so much bright color while the whole concept of the space remains effortless.

What's inspiring you today?
