Inspiration: What inspired you this year? How do you think this inspiration will impact the year to come?

I was inspired by household textiles this year - the colors, patterns and textures of linens, blankets, duvet, quilts, you name it… It was part of my obsession with my apartment, no doubt, and my preference for being surrounded by pretty things,b ut it also inspired me to think about what it was I truly want my home to include, and how some of those things are missing from the marketplace and how, maybe, just maybe, I have to be the one to provide them. I think, and hope, that 2014 will entail further development of that idea…

aka fancy twix?!
