Happy Memorial Day!Happy Memorial Day!  I first want to sincerely thank our US Military and our fallen for serving, and continuing to serve, our country and protecting our freedom.

 

I am lucky enough to live in our Nation’s Capital and to be amongst the the amazing monuments and memorials that DC has built.  These are some of my favorite places to see!

The Greek Key motif, a classic and historical motif.  Its geometric and modern, and it can be use in formal or casual designs.  Its so versitile!

I recently I have been incorporating a lot of geometric patterns into some of my designs, maybe because several of my newer clients are younger and prefer a more modern vibe over traditional?  Or maybe these projects are more casual than formal?  But I have also used this element in formal living rooms- So is there a way to define the Greek Key?

So I haven’t been on an airplane in about 5 months and I am really getting the itch to travel!  Okay, so I am going to Boston in a few weeks for my best friend’s bachelorette party (I miss you Christy, I can’t wait to see you!)… but that’s not the type of traveling I’m talking about… I mean I need a new foreign destination.
