I don’t normally like things that are described as ‘urban professional lifestyle’.  Seems so very sterile.  But I like Knack Studios.  They have a quirkiness to their style that is a lot warmer than what ‘urban professional lifestyle’ sounds.  Even if that is how they describe themselves.  I found this picture there…

…and now I am looking at my vast expanse of white walls and fighting an urge to grab some green, pink and turquoise chalks and letting loose on them.  Or maybe that brown feature wall could be the recipient of some simple white, red and black(?) chalk-strokes.  Hmmm, the temptation.

I had better finish this and go do something else quickly to distract me from that seemingly alluring idea, because I’m pretty sure one husband would be extremely unimpressed with my failure to curb such a simple little creative urge this afternoon.  Back to paper it is, then!

{Knack Studios is a shop in South Carolina, but they also have a Knack Studios blog which bypasses geographic limitations}.

Have found some incredible photographs to be wowed by.  They showcase the work of Interior Stylist Irina Graewe and you can view galleries of her current work on her website: http://www.irinagraewe.de/gallery_interiors.html  (Images are from her Africa Meets Neon collection). 

These colours are so fantastic!  I can’t believe how startlingly wonderful they look together.  So the natural result would be me wanting to make something that emulated these wonderful colour combinations.  So, time for a card project.

Hope you like and maybe your projects will get an injection of brightness sometime soon thanks to Irina Graewe!
