It’s been a fun week at Studio 202! Most of our back-ordered furniture is scheduled to ship this week, and I can’t wait to have everything in place. Tick-tock, tick-tock. Tapping foot impatiently.
Thanks to Impact Design Resources and our wonderful interns, Meredith and Ashton, our sample room is finally complete and organized. Yippee!!
Of course, Lisa Mende and I continue to find new vendors … which means the samples continue to roll in. I am super excited for the arrival of a new-to-us performance fabric. If — hypothetically speaking, bien sûr — a certain little someone were to punch a hole in the fabric with something sharp like a fork or a ballpoint pen, the weave of this fabric just closes itself back up. Crazy cool, right?
But the true Christmas-in-July moment came when the Julie Robinson paintings arrived. Julie creates abstract transcendental paintings that are out-of-this-world. I love the word “transcendental” to describe her work, because her paintings are so incredibly layered and nuanced that they become almost ethereal.
As beautiful as her work is in photos, it is absolutely breathtaking in person. Because her deft use of color manages to be both subtle and strong, even her smaller paintings add extraordinary presence to a room.
