Exposure And Travel Are Vital...

For Re-Fueling Ones Creativity.
Especially if you create for a living.

"Maureen Footer’s travel memories , including colors, culture and architecture influence her designs."

I love love love  this color scheme.  Do You Like It ?

I especially like the collection of identical mirrors grouped together in this way.
Doing something like this can solve a problem... 
I have done this before, because I could get my hands on the right piece of art, in exactly the right size. 
You can always use the mirrors grouped in a different configuration elsewhere in the house, once you have found the perfect item for over the mantle. 
And, if you do not find it , well....
this would remain beautiful & timeless always.

One of the many things she studied, was her first love interior design, graduating with honors, in 18th century interior architecture and furniture at the Ecole du Louve in Paris.

  1. I liked your point about the mirrors above the mantel. I have a lot of mirrors because I am so picky about art - I have to absolutely love a painting to buy it, and often it is not the right size. So, I get mirrors thinking that I will move them when I find 'the' painting, but that never ends up happening!

  2. hi Renee,thanks for posting this,you just gave me a great idea about what to do for my fireplace,if you have a chance come see please and tell me if is ok, i'll really appreciate it..thanks a lot..

  3. Love the mirrors over the fireplace. Although, have you tried to hang something like this? So painfully diffifult to get it right!! If one is out of alignment - arrrgggghhhh!!!

  4. linda m-

    i use a couple of guys who do just this kind of task.
    thank G-d for them too !

    thanks for the comment

  5. I absolutely looove the coral color - decided to use that exact tone in the master at our cabin...been living with it for a year and just can't get comfy with it. I started painting over it last week. ;(

  6. I don't envy the person who hung these mirrors either, a nightmare but brilliant effect. xv

  7. Mirrors are the perfect thing when I can't find art. And travel is the perfect thing....anytime! Nice images!!

  8. Very colorful...very lovely!

    Partial to the is in our foyer...on our guest house and in the courtyard.

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
