design design luscious design...

This kitchen so completely does it for me....Gorgeous transom windows! Light, bright, airy...I might make the island larger and change out the pendant lighting, but just love overall. Whenever I view a kitchen design, rarely do I FEEL as though I would be comfortable in it. This kitchen I could totally see and feel myself working in.

What's it all about?

This is where I decided to corral my art site, links to my previous incarnations (a.k.a. old blogs) and my all around Caleidescope view on life. I love design, art, architecture, photography, film and a million other things I will highlight here...depending on my mood. Images, thoughts and art that reflect my interests at any given moment.

Caleidescope is a my little play on words ;)

Kaleidoscope as defined by wikipedia
Kalos from the Ancient Greek, meaning "beautiful, beauty"...
Eidos "that which is seen: form, shape, and
Skopeo "to look, to examine,
hence  "Observer of beautiful forms"...(and of course, Cal for Calli ;)

I see life as a multi-dimensional wonder. I look for the inherent value in beautiful views, art, objects, people...everything. Art and beauty are subjective, but in all, they create in many: a sense
of meaning, a sense of joy and pleasure. At times it invokes the opposite, but to make you FEEL is, I believe, the very reason for the existence of art and beauty. 

It is my hope that you will find beauty within these pages...art, eye candy in the form of design, things with soul....so go for it!
You know you want to!
