'It is eternity now. I am in the midst of it. It is about me in the sunshine;
I am in it as the butterfly in the light-laden air. Nothing has to come; it is now.
Now is eternity; now is the immortal life.'
~ Richard Jefferies
Juliet is happy to announce she offers interior colour + finishes from
Sydney Harbour Paint Company
a gorgeous environmentally enlightened company based in Australia with a showroom in Los Angeles. I remember first walking into their atmosphere years ago
and being happily absorbed in the quality, colour and textures presented
in the light-filled room. Making your home or place of business styled to your taste with quality elements like our beautiful silks and Sydney Harbour's wall finishes will be lovely fun. We can do bespoke silk designs with custom colour and textures for a sublime star power kind of look. Let's talk about up-leveling your life today.

Focus inside on joy. Think thoughts of joy. Feel joy.
See yourself in joy. As you connect to the joy inside you more often, your whole world will transform to reflect that joy. Heaven will move people, circumstances, and events to deliver joy to you ~ because you are magnetizing joy.

The composition, precision and polishing of stone artwork coupled with the intricate delicacy of the butterfly floral design in ethereal onyx looks beautiful only after hours of intense work. In Florence I stood in a pietre dure atelier looking at their arduous technique for cutting and polishing and the sketches for such designs. The rewards of the law of the harvest are truly only known to those who work in the field so to speak, taking the consistent daily actions which shine after seasons of focused commitment.
My burnt sienna silk velvet impressed with a French garden arabesque silkscreen
retains an aura of warmth and metallic glow ~ a decorative nod to the great formal gardens of the 17th century ~ a trio of inspirational links between embroidery,
gardens and illustrations. All forms of endeavor requiring years of training and thoughtful action to show their best results.
'He who would do some great things in this short life must apply himself to work
with such a concentration of force as, to idle spectators who live only to amuse themselves, looks like insanity.' ~ Francis Parkman
Inventive, artistic calligraphy and decorative elements with metallic paint and movement
capture my design eye right now. I can see my large marble stone silk scroll
layered with a poetic silkscreen motif like this one gracing a grand room.
I am in love with silk, colour, light, decorative elements and the energy of creation!
