Eclectic - Employing individual elements from a variety of sources, systems, or styles: an eclectic taste in design.

Sofa by Sherrill

Eclectic is not so much a style as a way of life. It means to surround yourself with the things that matter in life, things that do not always come with a price tag. They are the mementos that we have gathered in a lifetime - a seashell from the beach, a postcard of a faraway place, a jug of wine from a vineyard. We gather these mementos in our home so we can remember.

Our home tells a story; it reflects the places we've been to, the people we have loved along the way, and what we treasure most. With that said, I will share with you one of my favorite verses from The Rubyiat of Omar Khayyam:

A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread--and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness--
Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!

The Rubaiyat by Omar Khayyam, circa 1120 AD.

Things That Matter

I think that we can all agree that there are very few things that really matter. Friends, family, and a good home in which to share them all comes to mind. With these few things in mind, we hope to share in the weeks, months, and, hopefully, years to come a few stories about friends, family, and the home in which we entertain them.
