From the Desk of Katie Armour

Happy Sunday my loves!  So pleased to share that today I’ve been included in a piece in the San Francisco Chronicle (off to buy a hard copy to send to grandmother!).  They asked a group of bloggers about design trends for 2011 and I bet you can guess mine…”classics, shaken and stirred!”  I’m not one for trends so I thought I’d simply stick to what I know best.  Anywho, hope you enjoy these little snippets of my desk space.  I played around with some of my favorite trinkets and put my amateur photo skills to the test.  How I wish I could have all of you over for bubbly to celebrate!  2011 is going to be a swell year, I can feel it ; )

    Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm and kind words! xo

    Susan — The clock is from Pottery Barn! One of my favorite pieces. An absolute bargain : )

    Such an inspiration! I’ve been working on my tiny desk for a while, but I don’t think it will be finally finished until we move to a different place. One small step at a time though!


    PS – Congrats dear!

    Colleen — Oh my goodness! I hadn’t even noticed! Such a bummer that it will be that way in print, c’est la vie! Hopefully I can get them to correct it online. I’m still getting used to my new last name, hahaha. xoxoxo

    I wouldn’t worry about it : ) I just wanted to say something in case they could change it in time! I know, I’m still working on my signature as well!

    your desk is great!! i think it’s that little splash of bright-but-lady-like pink on the book spine that does it for me…

    i’m with you on not being too trendy…we had a bizarro incident this past week…a car crashed into our (circa 1935 house). besides taking out an entire brick wall–our wonderful contracter has saved as much of the original brick as possible–it smashed my grandmother’s baby grand, mauled my husband’s grandmother’s burled walnut coffee table, embedded shattered glass in all of the upholstery of old furniture, etc, etc & lots of ect…

    i’ve been trying to explain to our insurance company why i don’t want to just replace all of this, i want it restored to the original state.

    we neo-traditionalists have a hard time in the modern world….

    thrilled for your chronicle piece!

    So lovely!! I especially love that your books actually look like they’ve been cracked & read – dog ears and all. And I am a gingham girl all the way, so I love your navy choice. Your ensembles have so much personality and charm!!

    Nanne — That is SO horrible. I am so sorry for your loss. So much of that is irreplaceable I’m sure. Keeping my fingers crossed you can put it back together. If there’s a will there’s a way, right? xo

    Polly — From London?! Oh now I’m jealous : ) xoxo

    Patty — Thank you! I do my best to read them! xx

    So much to devour visually, Katie! I love your recommendations and your traditional-with-a-twist outlook on the year. Happy 2011 to you!
