Meaningful Inspiration: A Room with History

clip_image001

What Inspires Me:My inspiration piece from home is this portrait of my grandmother, an amazing woman I was lucky enough to have in my life. Every day from this portrait she encourages me to work my best and live life. Personal items with meaning can inspire us all. Every room should have something with meaning, a part of your history. “ – Jonathan Legate
