Lucite Bar Stools

These are the bar stools you want... Lucite and brass! This fabulous piece was shown at High Point market in October. Lucite is a material that takes up no visual space.  That makes it perfect for small spaces. The style is equally effective in traditional or contemporary settings. I like it with a stainless counter top, reclaimed wood cabinets in pale gray with a glass subway tile backsplash.

Faux Silk Drapes - Online

Among the many things I do in my design world, my latest venture is, custom drapery panels sold online. You provide your measurements. We'll provide the drapes! We're starting with  faux silks, fully lined. There are lots of colors to select... Coming!
The goal is quality with a quick delivery.  Our panels come in a variety of headers. This is the top portion of the drapery panel. (see below)With these headers and an ample amount of fabric per panel our drapers flow beautifully to the floor. Isn't it time to add beautiful custom drapes to your living or dining room? ... let me know!

Pinch pleats work well with any design style to complete a room. 

Cartridge pleats ripple gracefully at the top and seamlessly spills to the floor. 
   Inverted pleats work well with ethnic and geometric prints  

The windows in this two story living room are lined with side panels in a geometric print.

Red Drapery Style

I've been away from blogging this year... doing life, working my day job in design and finding  projects to dig into. With seven years into this blog it's hard to completely let it go. So, I'm back.  My greatest  passion in design are textiles...especially when they're made into beautiful window treatments. Drapes or curtains whichever term you prefer always pull a room together. They complete a space. I find a room somewhat incomplete without beautiful window treatments.  Many fabrics and styles are available to dress up or down a space. I'd like to share a few creative drapes from my design files in my favorite color... Red.

If you want drapery panels like the kind you see here send me an email.

What's Inspiring Me

What's inspiring me?... This kitchen, from top to bottom. I enjoy cooking and thus spend lots of time in my kitchen. What I appreciate about this kitchen is it's compact size and stainless wrapped island.  Look up  and notice how the wood ceiling waterfalls down to the cabinets.  Though this is a modern space the walnut wood warms it up. I'm so over granite with all its variation. None here... a calm, cool color palette takes the edge off while whipping up something spectacular after a long work day!

2014 Color of the Year

Radiant Orchid is the Pantone color for 2014. This color is a surprise. We don't use if often yet it can bring a room to life. It mixes well with blue, yellow, green or gray. Try it in various hues like aubergine, lilac, or purple in the same space. The many shades will balance out a room. While we're in winter darker hues are beautiful with jewel tones. Once spring arrives lilac and coordinating pastels are the way to go,
