When I wasn't busy dealing with the constant and stressful demands of just trying to stay warm, I spent much of this winter helping to launch an interior design/events/travel planning startup. I'll do a proper post on it later (we're still tweaking the website a bit!) But it's been an exciting learning experience and a great introduction to Boston's creative community.
I know what you're thinking..."Christine--you were stuck inside all winter---you must have absolutely transformed that little apartment!" And you couldn't be more wrong! I did very little design-wise at home this winter. Luckily, one of the only things I did do -- install these Crate and Barrel Jax Sconces in our bedroom --was so gratifying that I feel like it made up for my lack of progress otherwise on the home front.
They're plug-in sconces, so didn't require an electrician or anything more than a drill. They're perfect for reading at night, and as I mentioned when I posted on instagram about them, I love the fact that I don't have to get up and turn off the light when I'm ready to go to bed. A lazy girl's dream :-)
