Have you ever stumbled across something so incredibly wonderful that you must stop everything you were doing and share it? That's exactly what happened this afternoon when I discovered the portfolio of interior design firm Tom Sheerer Incorporated. I'm smitten, I'm hooked, I'm utterly entranced--and like a girl in the throes of new love, I just had to tell someone!
Today I answered an interview question describing my interior decor taste as 'paralyzed'. I appreciate so many styles that I can't decide what to do in my own home. But then I saw Sheerer's spot-on mix of antique and modern; his unique application of iconic pieces (Panton chair as piano stool!); his serene yet dynamic neutral palettes. This is the inspiration I need to shake me into action!
So here's what I propose: I'll rip up the obscenely ugly carpet in my apartment and reveal the original wood floors beneath. I'll buy a mantlepiece at a salvage store to inject a sense of architectural gravitas. And I'll call Tom Sheerer in hopes of convincing him to take me on as his next charity case. Whadya think?
You tell me: Where do you find design inspiration when you need a kick in the pants?
