absolutely beautiful things
Even though I have launched a second career in textile design, my inner interior designer still gives me a good nudge now and then. I got the nudge recently when I came across this well known interior designer from Australia. Anna Spiro of Brisbane, Australia has a wonderful blog called Absolutely Beautiful Things which features ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL THINGS! She also has a website for her Interior Design Studio called Black and Spiro. Here is one of her projects that is my favorite! Black and Spiro: City House Take a look! Anna is amazing! I absolutely LOVE her style! It is fresh and pure and unaffected! It is ANNA!
I was a Certified Interior Designer, designing corporate and commercial facilities for the past 30 years. I retired after owning my own design firm for about 15 of those 30 years. While designing interiors I had many opportunities to examine luscious textiles in detail. The fabrics today are so incredible, using all kinds of materials, from plastics to metal, to achieve a look and function; while color application has reached new heights. Very inspiring stuff! Being the right brainer that I am, I thought, “I could do that. . .” So I turned Hand Weaver and continue to pursue my passion in textiles. The future always holds something wonderful, and that's where I'm heading.
