Just this morning, walking to our studio this morning I was greeted by this great “graphic graffiti” inspired truck… great inspiration to start the week.

First Step is your Inspiration.
Everyone needs an ottoman or stool. It’s a very useful accessory for the home. I found some ottomans/ stools on Etsy and at WorldMarket pictured below.
