[John Robshaw spring 2011 catalog. Photography by ]
Over the holidays, Mrs. Blandings and I exchanged a few messages about inspiration boards (not a huge surprise as these design staples have long been a popular blog topic), and she just posted her newest choice, commenting on the creative mix of images composed for the retailer's catalog.
Currently, my own board is covered with holiday cards which will soon be taken off and placed in a box. So, I need to start assembling a fresh composition for the new year. The back page of John Robshaw's spring 2011 catalog, as well as boards that appeared here in pre-Christmas posts*, have me thinking that a mix of the three dimensional with the flat is a must. I wanted to post the Robshaw image in part to add to the online dialogue but also because, on second glance, I noticed Ngoc Minh Ngo and Erin Derby did the photography. (Detailed views and full styling/design credits can be seen here.)
