On another note, I’ve been thinking a lot about what my goals are with this blog. I know that I don’t want it to be a resource for new products (a lot of design blogs seem to take that route), and I know I don’t want it to be merely a journal of my own work. The direction I seem to be naturally taking is a library of design ideas to inspire me, and hopefully you. That means design ideas for your home, your wardrobe, your wedding, your life. What I’ve been publishing here is pretty much exactly what I think about every day.

Of course, this blog will probably evolve over time. In fact, I hope that it does. And I’m sure I’ll often stray from my own standards—

but hopefully you’ll forgive me because I’ve already warned you.
