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

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.

“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.

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.
