2011 Inspiration - Take It Where You Find It

Not all my inspiration for 2011 came from magazines.  The Wall Street Journal's Off Duty and Magazine have both provided loads of entertainment.  This particular piece by Timothy Corrigan inspired the ceiling color, Farrow and Ball Cream (No. 44), in Bill's den.  You can see the article here.

Richard Mishaan's Phillip-Jeffries paper at Kips Bay Show House sparked a project for the front hall.

And, I am obsessed with the Giacometti lamps in Frances Elkins's projects.  These in particular.  Obsessed.  Stephen Salny's book is available here.

Paris was a great influence, but the color of the limestone was very sticky; I can't shake it.

And, Mad Men, which I began watching this time last year (shut up in my room in the dark with my iPad for hours.)  What jumped?

Jon Hamm?  Too obvious.  Sterling Cooper's office door color.  Could not get enough.
