Sneak Peek Inspiration{for-me}

Sophie Blackall... a wonderful artist and certainly one of my favorites.
Her etsy shop can be found here.

She is featured on design sponge, with pictures of her lovely apartment:

A lot of comments on how it's a bit bizarre and creepy.
I beg to differ.
I adore her collections. Yes, many things that would other wise be discarded but collected very beautifully.

Her armadillo looks a bit familiar ;)

We share the same aesthetic. She uses a lot of elements and features many things I use and display in my own home.

As another commenter stated:"I love the cabinet of curiosities feel. I wouldn't say creepy—more like wondrous or awe-inspiring".

I agree whole-heartily!!!!
