Well, I guess I was wrong. I said yesterday when I posted about Jessica Bonness’ food-inspired rooms that I didn’t think anyone would look to food when decorating a room.
Well. I got an email today from a reader in Florida, saying she did just that. Here’s how a bowl of black beans and rice — with a dollop of yellow corn — translates into Lynda Quintero-Davids’ bedroom:
“I’m Latin and live in South Florida, so black beans and rice are a staple,” Lynda, a stylist and room stager, wrote in an email. “But when I added yellow corn to a serving, I was so inspired I took a quick picture of it, and the next day transformed the room, all with existing decor item I already had.”
Now, I know this room isn’t in DC, but Lynda was nice enough to respond to my post about a DC designer, so it counts in my mind. Here’s a link to her own blog, right here. Good work!
