There's an old proverb that says, "there's nothing new under the sun" and I believe that this is true of design. Inspiration is all around us be it through people we aspire to emulate, nature, magazines and the list could go on and on.
My daughters have grown up seeing me garden, antique shopping and dream of one day having my own shop. I will never forget what Ryan said to me once when she relocated to where we currently reside. Her father gave her directions to our new house and when she arrived she said, "Mom I knew this was the house when I saw all the flowers outside".
I personally love Ryan's style and enjoy reading her blog. She inspires me! Honestly, I can't believe that I am so blessed to be the mother of these beautiful young ladies and I tell them all the time, "You'll grow up and be just like me (loving blue and white) and hopefully dream bigger and go farther.
I already see signs of their unique styles as they create and forge their own fashion styles and eventually one day their homes.
So it is true....like mother....like daughter!
