While in London last week, (or was it 2 weeks ago already?), I was lucky enough to stay at my friend's place. She considers herself a "charityaholic" but I think it has to do more with a very well trained eye, and superb taste to find the things she has been able to find.
Inspiration is apparently everywhere you look (so "they" say). I find it much easier to access it when you happen to have a friend that lets you go through her drawers and explore. Preferably they would have to look as beautiful and exquisitely curated as the ones below. Not just any drawer will make the cut, mine for example, don't even come the tiniest bit close to these.
I know part of looking through a drawer is also the experience of it, of being able to move things to see what more is in there. I can assure you it was a very exhilarating hour or two. In the meantime just looking through will do, right?
I think I can officially declare myself a nosy parker, a closeted one that is, because I won't ever go through anyone's drawers unauthorized, but in my mind that would be the thing I would think of most. I'm so, so happy I got the chance to see my friend's house and her collections.
I think that is one of the reasons I started my Crafty series, so I can see where and how people lived, their collections and sensibilities.
Here's hoping I get to open many more drawers to see beautiful things, and wishing you a bright and lovely day,
P.S: Thank you C. for letting me open your drawers!!
