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.

“Love” Your Mantle

“Love” Your Mantle…a very important part of your living space is the fireplace. Make sure the dressing you achieve brings you pleasure. Small lamp lighting on a mantle is lovely and adds warmth.

Color, It Speaks to Us

Color tugs at our emotions in a lot of ways. Color speaks volumes; energy, solitude, beauty, freshness, passion, purity, life. The colors of the rainbow always make us happy. They represent fresh air after the storm.

Do the colors in your home speak to you?

Oranges and ambers what a range; from pumpkins to fireside flame. Warm, spicy, these perk us up and keep us warm.

Light greens and blues speak to our sense of rest; a need to escape. These shades are soft, peaceful, quiet. Beautiful shades of aqua to the crystal blues of the ocean. Our love for solitude reflected in color.

Romance, who doesn’t love it? A beautiful rose garden, the blush of a child’s cheeks. Playful and feminine, coral or cotton candy, pink or purple, they all lift the spirit and leave us feeling…so….

Tranquility, gems, uplifting describe turquoise. Turquoise is a wonderfully spirited. This color is said to enhance your creativity, yet is fresh as the morning dew.

Who can resist a bit of red. Passionate, warm and the heart of the home. Red can add drama, or spark a bit of heat in a room.

Purity. We all loves the different shades of white. Comforting to the spirit and the soul. It is simple, it is pure and it is natural.

Nature. Green, brown, growth, rebirth. The grass is always greener. Nature speaks to us in all of it’s glorious color, but the foundation is green.

Take a look at the colors in your home. Do they speak to you? Are you happy with them?

I Love to Go to Lowe’s Home Improvement

Today I was in Lowe’s looking for a product that would waterproof a canvas I want to hang outside. No luck there but I did run across an amazing product yet to be proven by me. I am excited to try this and want to share with you.

Rust-Oleum Countertop and Cabinet Transformations. Kits allowing you to transform worn, damaged and outdated countertops into new surfaces in just one weekend. One kit covers up to 50 SF. Comes in five colors and looks incredible. The kit contains everything you need.

The countertop kit comes in two different tintable kits. One dark and one light. The dark kit can be tintable to 24 colors; the light one to 11 colors. You have the option of with or without decorative glaze. I am so excited to try this. As soon as I do I will post before and after pictures.

This should help a lot of people save money and create beautiful rooms…one at a time..by design. Until later.

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.
