Everything is Beautiful…in it’s Own Way

My New Slipcover

My New Slipcover

How times have changed, and so has decorating. Everyone’s taste can be exemplified in some way through color, style, or innovation. Take chances with your decor. If it is fabric or paint, remember it can always be changed.

Slipcovers…now here is a problem. It cost as much for slipcovers as it does to reupholster. I love slipcovers but there’s no manufacturer of slipcovers that takes into consideration the real shape of upholstered pieces. For instance, try to slipcover a wing chair! Would it not be wonderful to change them by season? Would it not be wonderful to have pieces that you can simply wash and place back on? I want it!!!!

Someone please help us……let’s manufacturer slip covers that make sense.

Until the Sun Goes Down

That is how I feel about the beach in summer. How I feel about my grand children and playing with them until they tire out.

That is also how I feel about decorating, I can do it until the sun goes down. Refreshing the looks of a room or an entire home. Making the customer feel the warmth of the sun on their face as they smile at the results.

It only take a few items changed aroung in a room to make it renewed. It only take a day at the beach to make us feel renewed. So why not take a look around and make it happen in your home, “Decorate Until the Sun Goes Down”.

Browsing Design

I so love browsing for the beautiful, unique and creative. Whether it is something I have created or something another has created, love is in the eye of the beholder.

The beautiful new gold Arteriors has introduced, the nailhead trim of a buffet, the circle representing art, natures green or the stunning chandelier, I am happy to browse and fall in love.

 

Landscaper Art

The double canvases are fabulous and can go almost anywhere. The blues certainly in a more subtle setting. I love art and wish I could change it out as my heart desires. Don’t you?

The Importance of Your Bedroom

Hampton Hill_Natural Instincts.jpg.ashxI love beautiful bedrooms. So many times this is the forgotten room ..the  Bedroom. Should you not make sure this room represents a sanctuary at the end of the day. We decorate our kids rooms, the guest room and forget about “our” room.  Paint the room a shade you and your husband, or just you, will love for a long time. Carefully select the at and the accessories. The lighting a bedside should be dimple for romance or a late night talk. Flowers added tMP_HarlowMaxineMelissaRaylene_ComfSet_SideAngle_White.jpg.ashxo the night table is a nice touch.White bedding offers you the flexibility of adding color where you wish. If you are fortunate enough add a seating area so you can get away when you feel like quiet.

White bedding offers flexibility as does natural bedding. Whether you live a spread, comforter or duvet make sure it is one you will enjoy and spend a few dollars getting what you want.

Make sure the master bedroom is clutter free…there is nothing more unsettling than a bedroom that speak of havoc and dis organization. Make the bed. fluff the pillows so that when you come home your bedroom will say “welcome back”.

34-1This bedroom is from a redesign project in 2013.  The client wished to have an updated look in their historic home. We created the night tables from a bookcase bed, silver leafing the wood and adding marble tops. The lamps were from TJ Maxx, some of the pillows from their old bedding. I ordered the luxurious bedding from one of my suppliers. The mirrors were added behind the lamps. This came out beautifully and not for a “ton” of money. Redesign, repurpose, revamp….revise. Their bedroom was luxurious, romantic, comfortable and totally updated.

So don’t forget your “end of the day’ haven. If you need a little helping hand let me know. Let’s create a beautiful bedroom for you.

present moments.

I love this….wish I could remember it more often.

Take a moment for yourself...

When we stop and take a moment to reflect on our day, we are propelled in to the present moment. This is were all the true “gifts” are. Stay in that moment and you’ll open yourself up to all possibilities. Taking an opportunity to turn one moment into two, then two into three and so fourth, you’ll see how simple a meditation this can be.  By placing an intention to create the space for this time is key. Begin upon waking and declaring to make this time for yourself.  As anything else that we practice for more than 30 days, it will become habit. Let’s give it a try and see what “gifts” you’ll discover. Feel free to share your discoveries here with us.  Often we hear that people find more patience, grace, peace and joy, now who couldn’t use a little more of that?!?
