I am often asked where I get my design ideas from. The answer is very simple. I extract ideas, creative thoughts and inspiration from all those things around me. I find inspiration in very simple things, from places I travel to, from books I read, pictures I see, stories I am told and feelings I have. I wish I could remember where I found this particular photograph. I would love to give the appropriate person credit for the stunning and very unique striped stair runner in this monochromatic room. This photograph excites me. It has sparked my creative senses and inspired me. It has fueled my appetite for colored stripes. I think this design is absolutely wonderful.
