Form And Function....Finders And Keepers



Which comes first in your decor life my friends....is it form or is it function?
Well I'd have to say that for me as an artist and designer it's usually form. As  I design pieces for my clients and customers and purchase items for the website it has to catch my eye and be consistent with my aesthetic first. Then it has to be useful, as something that will have a purpose, add color or a decorative touch and be loved. Does this make sense?

Hello everyone....I'm doing a Friday post a little early, as I'm leaving in a just a little while for a few days at our beach home.

That being said...WARNING, another photo heavy post consisting strictly of FLEURS... 
I shot these images at the home of the French painter Claude Monet in Giverny, who was one of the fathers of impressionism and my favorite painter....
