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.

 

Staging…You Want Me to Do What!

I want you to buy new bedding. I cannot remember how many times I have said this. It seems one of the most important rooms in the house keeps getting neglected. This is where you go to relax. Should this room be messy, mismatched and cluttered? NO, absolutely not.

It really doesn’t take much to have a wonderful retreat in the master suite. There are fabulous bedding sets for under $100 that will create the foundation for the remainder of the room.

 

JBHirsch Home Design Bedding 250Tell me why do you have such small lamps?  Get table lamps that will enhance the space. Add window treatments….and please make sure they go from the ceiling to the floor!!
The bedrooms in your house should show beautifully, as well as they baths!!! These rooms need to look like they came out of a catalog. Not expensive, they just need to look like “$$”

 

If you want to live in your home….take great pride in the appearance.  It doesn’t take much time nor much money to have beautiful rooms.Sula_ccomforterSet from Ollix

Style and Junk 2012

Albums to clocks, scary ghost, beautiful paper flowers, incredible bedding, wonderful clothes. There was so much to see at the Style and Junk Show this past weekend at the Milky Way Farm. This was my first time there and I was amazed at what these nifty crafters were selling. There was everything in the world made from recycled items. This brass lantern painted a beautiful soft white, add some sparkle and a few bows…wonderful! A shade made from linen with such flare. How great it would be in a soft, feminine room or guest bedroom! Allfo the seams were on the outside, and the ruffles were unhemmed.

It was great….I enjoyed every minute. While most of the items at the show were not my style, they may be yours…creativity was  in abundance. Bedding from linen is one of my favorites and this was truly a treat for my eyes.

Smoky grey, white and taupe..such softness you cannot imagine. Pair this with a pair of the lampshades and you will have a room to die for!!!

I am always on the outlook for the unusual, the beautiful, and the creative. I was not disappointed this time at all.

Mirrors Reflect Our World

Mirrors are a very important part of our decor and should reflect the beauty we wish for it to. A leaning mirror can be very dramatic in our living spaces, reflecting the beauty of our surroundings. A mirror with great style, or unusual design, can add excitement to a wall. Just the right touch without going overboard. For a more formal look we can revert to the traditional style.

Mirrors can be in furnishings, or an accessory. However, we decide to use mirrors they are beautiful and add great dimensions to our decor.

Beautiful Master Bedrooms

Incredibly simple and elegant. I love the simple lines, the mono chromatic scheme. To add a bit of punch you could add pillows in most any color. This look would not be expensive and would be fabulous in a guest bedroom.Image
