It is starting...you know the whole "to inspire" part of my New Year's resolution. As you might of read a few days ago, this year I'm trying to inspire my COCOCOZY friends to dream big. The added benefit is that hearing stories of how COCOCOZY readers are inspired by something here on the blog or by my stories of running my less than year old textiles and home furnishings company, is truly inspiring to me. I didn't realize though that this circle of inspiration would have so much of an immediate return...
Okay...here's the scoop...
On January 1st (just a few days ago), the day after I wrote my New Year's resolution post, I got a sweet email from a COCOCOZY reader...here's what it said:
I read your blog every week and just LOVE what you are doing!!! I just started my own interior design business and plan on launching my new website in the New Year. I am also attempting a blog and was really inspired reading your post on your triumphs for 2011 and resolutions for 2012. It actually helped to give me a boost on putting myself out there! Anyway, I do not usually do this, but I wanted you to say thank you for the inspirational words!....
All my best and Happy New Year!
The subject line for the email was "Thank you" and it came from New York interior designer Jenny Wolf of her eponymous Jenny Wolf Interiors firm.
Of course, I had to look at Jenny's portfolio and to my delight her work is absolutely lovely. I emailed Jenny and asked her for a few hi-res photos and here we are...tah dah...
So I guess Jenny is at the beginning of starting her interior design business and she has a few wonderful spaces to show off. These images come from two different New York city apartments. Both, feature an eclectic mix of furnishings but all pieces work so nicely together. Jenny manages to work extremely well with architecture in each space...whether it be floor to ceiling paned windows or exposed brick throughout a loft...I like what she's done with these two spaces.

Well I am so thrilled that Jenny is making her dreams of running her own interior design business come true! To inspire and to be inspired is working...wow...that is quick turn around!
Keep up the fantastic work Jenny. It will take some doing to build but my biggest piece advice is to just hang in there and as my sister always tells me, "just keep doing what you are doing"...you are on the right track!
What do you think of Jenny's work? Which of these spaces do you like best? Find anything inspiring here?
