This picture is evidence that when you refuse to accept the usual run of the mill pieces that all the chain stores sell, you can find something that is unique to your personality and style. The owners of this space searched high and low for a media cabinent they could live with, that would reflect their taste. They spotted this cabinent at a salvage store outside of the boston area. It was originally intednded for a kitchen and was much larger, but they decided to cut it in half and use the top as a console and the bottom as a media cabinent. The result is a very funky one of a kind piece that is hundreds of dollars less than anything you would find at a retail chain! Don't be afraid to look at salvaged pieces and think up upcycling them to a modern use- you are doing good things for the enviornment and your wallet all the while enhancing your unique style!
I have always been dualistic in my approach to business. In college, I studied political science and philosophy. While I have always been extremely creative, I initially thought that my education would of been better spent pursing a law degree. I have spent many years in the legal profession. That being said, I came the realization that I would be much happier in a creative profession. I have gone to my true passion within my creative self and started editing and writing my own fashion lifestyle blog in 2009. I have not looked back and love what I do.
