Crystal Palecek’s New Office

I had lunch with a couple of friends a few days ago. One friend was sharing details about the remodeling being planned for her home while the other, a recent empty nester, was talking about a redecorating project currently in process. Specifically, the empty nester was turning a bedroom into a new office and craft room. She couldn’t be more excited about it. I could relate to her giddiness because it wasn’t until we moved into the seaside ranch home that I was able to decorate my very own office space. Coincidently that evening I also read about the new office of Crystal Palecek, Co-Founder and Editor in Chief of Rue Magazine. Here’s a look at Crystal’s new office space but be sure to read the interview with her to learn more about the design, its inspiration and sources for her project. After hearing about my friend’s project and seeing Crystal’s new office, it made me start rethinking my own space. Uh-oh…can you see where this is headed?Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 2Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 4Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 3Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 5Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charmCrystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 6Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 7Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 8Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 10Crystal-Palecek home office_reviving charm 9a

DREAMING OF A WHITE WINTER

Today marks the first official day of winter and I welcome the season with open arms. There have been dramatic changes in the weather here in Southern California and I am thrilled that I can finally pull out the winter coats from the closet and wrap a scarf around my neck.  It doesn’t snow here at the beach but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream of a white winter…
