Having just made it through this Valentine’s Day Weekend, I thought I would find a love quote to share and this one from Voltaire spoke to me (as it notes furniture and needlepoint especially).
These words are perfect not only for love, but also for design and your space. And for me, having grown up in the Pacific Northwest and loving all things nature, being a knitter and appreciating all variety of needle-craft, and of course, who doesn’t love a good dose of imagination?! These perfect words are on a background of Frosted Rose by Benjamin Moore, which I also thought was so appropriate for the weather we are having and the season of love and roses we are in.
Things have been insanely busy and so good, so here is a brief update:
Last you heard we were working through the Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo. We are still working our way through the last two phases, but it has been a big transformation already. The living room feels amazing, the closets and especially the cabinets under our bathroom and kitchen sinks… I can’t even explain how these changes have made such a huge difference. I will do a full round-up when we finish the project. We were originally aiming for a month (which would be next Tuesday), however with our schedules, I don’t want to add pressure and do it hastily and get it wrong. I want to do it once and be done and I think we will realistically be done by the end of February… we shall see.
I’m working on a handful of truly amazing design projects right now, and I will share more on that (hopefully) Wednesday so you can be on the look out for that breakdown.
For Valentine’s Day Weekend, we went out for a nice dinner on Saturday at Liberty Prime in downtown Jersey City, where P proclaimed that he enjoyed the best steak of his life, and I certainly wouldn’t complain about what I had either… Despite the frigid temps and treturous winds, we made the best of it and had a great night. Sunday we both got some work done, around the house and professionally, and today was back to the norm.
Currently we are watching the Grammy’s, which so far.. pretty great!! I love seeing all of the performances and this year hasn’t disappointed so far… we will see as the night continues, but for now, I think that is all for me.
Have a great night! Hope you have given yourself the time to sit down and appreciate the loved ones in your life and spend some time together making memories this weekend!
