Simple objects in pretty colors always look appealing.
My Genius Assistant is going to love this photo. She loves pencils! I'm more of a gel pen girl myself.
What would you rather write with? I'm sure there is a personality test in there somewhere!

We are seeing more and more interest in Roman shades to dress the windows as of late. These, from Graber's Regal Collection shown with the cordless lift option (*free promotion right now available through May 31, 2018). Also shown with drapery in
Esmeralda and hardware all by Graber.
These relaxed Roman Shades from Graber's Ainslie in Arctic,
are great for a casual office, nursery (where we ALWAYS recommend the cordless option for safety)
mudroom or anywhere that you want a look
that is dressed but not fussy.

I made a trip to my favorite hardware store for some last-minute supplies for a recent
window treatment installation and couldn't resist taking this picure.
I mean, just look at all the years of love and hard work and elbow grease
that have made this cabinet so charming. I love the drawers.
I love the labels. I love the tools and gadgets that make our lives easier.
But mostly, I love that this kind of store being run by helpful, honest folks still exists.
Open since 1914, Nichols Hardware in downtown Purcellville, Virginia
still gives personalized attention and cares about its customers.
Thank you, Nichols.

know by looking.)

with a 2 week turnaround?
Sometimes it all just comes together.
This wide (over 70") window needed
light control and privacy.
Our RMCoco fabric "Frolic" in cream
with a 3" band in celadon green
gave it a personalized touch and blended the room
colors together perfectly.
So when the fabrics were in stock and the workroom
didn't have much backlog, our client got a happy phone call to schedule installation
within 2 weeks of her order!
PS The wall paint color is Sherwin-Williams' Agreeable Gray #7029.

This Winfield Tybony Wallcovering
got us thinking about. . .
got us thinking about. . .
Caracole Classics with a
chair that is just as pretty from the back
as from the front. See the wood fretwork?
|A dresser with a nod to mid-century style |
but updated for today is our
"Natural Intuition" as well.

Osborne and Little in "Martineau"
Caracole is right; "Good Ideas Only" indeed.
