Another Inspiring Year

Happy Thursday everyone, and a Happy Birthday to me! Yup, another year has gone by and what a year it has been! I got married, moved to Manhattan and started a blog.  My project of finding an avenue to write and showcase all of my design ideas/thoughts/inspiration has been a truly enjoyable one and I can honestly say it has given me a different way of looking at this crazy world of design we live and breath.  I have made some incredible connections and really feel honored to be part of this amazing community, and am so grateful to all my readers who continuously motivate, inspire and humble me - Thank you! Canoe Design might not be one of the superblogs, however it is a super blog to me and I am proud of what I have accomplished.  I love each and every post and as each week passes I find my footing and voice a little more.

One of the things I have embraced this year (more than I ever thought I would) is the world of social media.  With a twitter and pinterest account I find that I am constantly making new connections and finding more and more things to inspire me.  Pinterest has been an incredible resource for concept images, ideas and suppliers and although I don't seem to devote as much time to it as I would like, I love how it is always growing and changing.  Today I thought I would include some photos of my favorite room - the kitchen!  There are some wonderful kitchens out there, and I truly think that the kitchen is the heart of a home. Seeing as we spend most of our time congregating there, it might as well be fabulous! I hope you all have a sunny day and remember...smile!

    I wish you a wonderful, inspiring, successful and exciting new year. And as a birthday is always a great day to say thank you, THANK YOU for writing this amazing blog here. I've loved every single post here, as it's always filled with great interiors, products and inspiration, of course, and your way to write about it just adorable. Thanks again, dear Anna!
    It's always a huge joy to drop by here and so I really look forward to what's about to come here.

    Love your collection of kitchen images above. Chic and clean yet heart warming and inviting. The perfect choise for a day like this!
