“I’m definitely a collector of odds and ends; I’ve always liked objects, little things that remind me of a moment in my history, ephemeral bits from travel, vintage keepsakes or even rocks from a trip to the beach.” —Nikole Herriott of Herriott Grace
  1. Such a beautiful use of space. Absolutely love her picnic table and benches.

    Love this Sneak Peak so much. Where is the animal wall hanging from?

  3. Lauren says:

    I like the idea of D*S classics. I also wish that the old sneak peeks were easier to explore, e.g. adding a “last” button or a feature that lets you jump to a certain year — just better pagination controls, please!

    1. Lauren- Thanks for the input! We’re working on introducing some new functionality to the site and will take this seriously into consideration!

    Hi Nikole..although you are a self-confessed lover of odds and ends (like me), the pictures you have here show a unity of design and tone that works really well – I think that having a neutral background really helps.
