for several months i have been working with a crackerjack chapel hill graduate who is in her first grown up apartment. she had furniture handed down from her mom and grandmother. when we were e-mailing back and forth about what the furniture looked like and what style the furniture was, she e-mailed me back and asked, “is old and tired a style?” the big reveal will be coming up soon , but for now a peek at her gallery wall. if you are wondering, caitlyn collects turtles. she has over 50 different species (not the living kind). i had painted some lamps for her in a chic aluminum finish, so why not a giant turtle to match?
