New Year…..A Fresh Start!

Christmas 2012 was simply divine. 2013 is well underway at Linx with a bombardment of men and women emailing me for consideration of membership. The decorations are packed up and it looks as though Spring is here at Linx. Well maybe not Spring but a fresh crisp feel for a cold January. San Mateo-20130103-00737Standing just shy of 5 feet, these gorgeous calla lilies grace the Linx officeSan Mateo-20130103-00736Modern elegance….these flowers are stunning! San Mateo-20130103-00733Vintage looking candle sticks with artificial flowers and greens with little accents of crystals and white pinecones adorn the Linx zinc pedestal table. Behind these candlesticks is an artificial rosemary tree (looks very real) standing 5 feet or so. I love constantly mixing up my home and office to shift and always evolve the experience for client and for my team. San Mateo-20130103-00734An easy way to create a happy atmosphere anywhere is to use florals. I raided Michael’s yesterday….luckily for me all silk flowers are 50% off. Since I rent my office space, I don’t necessarily want to have to paint walls to change a look. Instead, I always update the space by moving objects, mixing, matching, and adding lots of color everywhere! I spent maybe $30 total on these flowers here. They come on very long wire stems that are extremely hard to cut unless you have some serious gardening shears. Since I didn’t want to buy shears, I simply pulled the flowers off the wire stem. They’re fake and really easy to manipulate this way. Pull off, stack on top of one another for depth, and mix and match. You can’t go wrong! Immediately when I put them up my assistant asked if they were real. Wink wink! San Mateo-20130103-00739It is hard to tell what that “thing” is next to the roses but enter my new find from Mexico….el corazon. It has a pretty grey and white finish and is made of what appears to be ceramic, finished with a silver flame looking top. 

In my collection of all time favorite romantic films is Romancing the Stone. If you haven’t seen it, you really need to. It was super hard to find any You Tube clips of the actual movie…must be copyright protected.  Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner star in the movie and adventure through Colombia in search of el corazon (an emerald heart treasure). Their attraction is palpable….definitely a must see. Gosh they were so young in this ’84 film. ElCorazon
