During the Sochi Winter Olympics, I learned a new snowboarding term called a yard sale. A yard sale describes a snowboarder who, while wiping out, loses their board, gloves, goggles or whatever else was once attached to them but is now strewn haphazardly all over the slope -- leaving the scene looking like, you've got it, a yard sale.
Stay with me here, the design tie-in is coming. In 2012, interior designer Tim Clarke gave an interview to Apartment Therapy sharing his design process which reminded me somewhat of a knowledge yard sale. Practically giving it away and filled with interesting tidbits, Clarke shared with readers how and why he does what he does to create calm, coastal spaces. Kind of wonderful when you consider it. Some of this information is also available in his book, Coastal Modern but this Apartment Therapy post provides the Cliffs Notes version.
For those of you familiar with Coastal Modern and wanting to see additional images never included in the book, visit Tim Clarke's houzz page.
