As I mentioned a few days ago, design work has been draining me the past couple of weeks.  In fact, I am in a bit of a funk personally and professionally.  I feel like I have been swimming upstream with all my might for several months and just want to stop paddling for a bit and see where the flow takes me.  That may mean a bit of a blog break, or maybe not.  This may be my creative outlet.  Just wanted to warn you.

Anyway, Lately I have been loving…

Botanicals on a black background

The deep rich color of this chest.

Great big, wide pants

Being pissy, sassy, hard assed and generally standing up for myself. It would be better if it didn't give me an anxiety migraine afterwards though.

See ya when I see ya.


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.

One Response to Funk

    I’ve been yearning for botanical charts like this forever! I absolutely love any sort of science related object turned into a home accessory- Beautiful Funk-tion – I can stand up for that kind of funk. The funk that you speak of must be banished–looking forward to seeing you soon! (love the great big wide legged pants, too)
