Bonjour Mes Amis. I know two days in a row. I’ve got a cold and I’m waiting on breakfast at the office followed by a coffee date with a friend. It’s amazing what can be done when you have a pressing to do list with timelines - BLOG!

I’m currently on the hunt for real art for my own house. I just purchased two pieces from Elsha Levetis at the Distillery Christmas Market two weeks ago and I’m craving more original art - specifically for above my big black tv. Living in a house that is 15 ft wide in total with a living room that is only 9ft wide, there are limitations. The extra ceiling height we added back in the spring helps as does the luxe furniture and embellishments (plaster cornice never hurts nor does the killer lighting) but something needs to happen over the TV and I’m absolutely NOT putting up anything Ikea again. Side note - I can’t even with that TV show. What a waste of air time.

Anyway, back to the wall. I want real art. I was cruising instagram last night and became obsessed with this painting on there but it’s now only available as a print. I reached out to the artist who is an imaginary online friend and told her that I thought the same piece would be killer with well red hair of course. She’s working on it.

​So I have two of these concentric circle oil paintings from Elsha - and to be honest I love the idea of seeing them straight down the hallway when you walk in the front door - I have a photograph there by James Anok that I love but the framing is in polished nickel and too light in the all white hallway in my opinion. I know I’m splitting hairs but it bugs me.

​Meet Vivien by artist Gina Julian. I just love it. It speaks to my strong feminine. It’s whimsical but not too whimsical. It’s moody. It’s the perfect balance for a large black rectangle! I also wouldn’t say no to the Louise Richardson painting in the opening but alas, it’s SOLD!

Once upon a time we had a Design Forum on our website. A member (who exactly, escapes me) coined the term “Sashay” to describe the excitement that was experienced every time a client/forum member received a package or had a “Reveal” from Meredith Heron Design. I love the visual I get whenever I hear it spoken or see it written..

Here’s hoping every day includes time for a little Sashay!
