What Inspires Me (Stephanie)?

As a designer I get to see lots of beautiful things every day…one of the perks of this career! From beautiful fabrics and wallpapers to amazing furniture and accessories…and really so much more. It is these beautiful things that I get to see on a day to day basis that truly inspire me as a designer.

What I want to share with all of you are the most recent things I’ve seen in new spring fabric/wallpaper collections and product shows…all of which are currently hanging above my desk on my inspiration board. It’s a great place for me to look when I need a little creative

pick-me-up. And, for all you animal lovers out there, well you’re in luck! The current theme of my inspiration board is all about animals!

Here are just a few of the amazing animal finds I’ve come across recently…
