color and material selection is a delicate rope to walk in design without overstimulating the space—-a fine example of a job well done on all levels

kelly7rich, textural, primarily masculine with brilliant red wall and bar beverage pull elements…concrete wall, high gloss red wall, and stainless (thicker edge detail) counter married with a sleek black elevated skateboard counter.  I’m lovin how the stools are floor mounted to blend in as permanent fixture

kelly8accomplished in color splashes and mixing materials is clearly evident in this vignette; there are at least a dozen worthy elements to soak in for design inspiration on future projects

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me………..was lost……was blind, but now I see…….

I wish:   to maintain an awareness of my blessings…..the sweet and the salty, the smooth and the rough….those that understand me and those that perplex me still…..each and every twist and turn teaches me….teaches me what I wish for and what I push against; all worthwhile lessons.  When the day is done, I continue to strive for acceptance….this song, it’s one of my favorites.

I wish: I could tell you that perspective came easy for me—I was a slow learner in matters of the heart and still am at times; some things might always confuse me.  I forget.

I wish:  to savor the joys of my world….to instill in my family a sense of their worth, their importance and my acceptance of their individual natures….this is easier some days that others.  I forget.

I wish: for peace, patience and  for graceful responses to all of life’s presentations.

Peace.

“She soon learned, though, that giving weight to other people’s opinions was creative nihilism; it was like being banished from the Land of No Words and exiled to the Land of All Bullshit.”
