Interior Designer Rachael Reider works very close to me, outside of Boston, MA, but I have not had the pleasure of meeting her. I hope to one day, as I am a huge fan of her work.

One of my favorite images ever... maybe because of my continued obsession with white rooms and cool chandeliers. I just had to share:
