Barn Wood Shutters

With so much emphasis on rustic finishes right now, you might want to consider these:

                                                    Not shown is a driftwood finish.

We are so excited to carry this new shutter line in the studio! And the best part? Made in America! They are the highest quality but at a competitively appealing price.

Maybe you like shutters but feel that they are a bit too traditional looking for you. Then you will LOVE these!  Contact us if you'd like to drop in to see all our shutter options.  Or, we can also bring them to you!

Water or Wine? 

Toni said,  "Look at this multipurpose fabric from RM COCO that is water repellent!" 

       Called Piper--this luxurious matte multipurpose retails for less than $50/yard.

Ruth replies,  "Does that mean it's wine repellent too?"

Cantonese Jars

Look at the Dana Gibson wallpaper from Stroheim in our Connecticut powder
room project --- so thrilled that we forgot to move the ladder! 

Would you put this wastepaper basket 
from Dana Gibson in the powder room?

High Point Highlights

Yes, I am really late with this post and you have already forgotten that I even went to the High Point Furniture Market in April and saw lots of cool things.
This year I did a little more shopping for clients than I usually do, but as in years past, I also went to see trends in interior design, see what's new with my favorite vendors and get inspired.
Here are a few of the photos I took:

I think everyone took this picture.  It was a display for a bedding company.  Don't you love the real tree branch hung on the wall with the fake birds perched on top?

More bedding. In crisp red and white.

One more bed in red, white and blue.  The tennis racquets give it a fun touch.

The barn door is such a trend, here it is used as a wall treatment to hide the TV.
When you slide the door in front of the TV, the storage shelves are revealed! Who doesn't need more storage?

In keeping with the rustic wood theme, here is a console from Dovetail that would be perfect for a project we are currently working on.
Detail of the console front.

If you are a fan of Chip and Joanna Gaines and their show, Fixer Upper, (and who isn't?) you will recognize the name Magnolia Home as being the other brand they own.  They have licensed their name to a furniture line, accessories, rugs and now PAINT!

I simply MUST HAVE this antique chandelier.  I've been looking for this style for awhile and don't really want a reproduction.  The amethyst crystals are a bonus.

Another antique chandelier - this one for a client - that features glass grapes.  Stunning!

As you can see, I took very few pictures this time.  I was too busy looking and walking and talking. I will say that we are about to see a lot more color in our interiors.
One of my favorite new finds was Lexington Home Brands.  I had to take a bus to their off-site showroom.  It was a total WOW, so much so that I forgot to take any photos. And as luck would have it, one of my favorite clients works for Lexington and he happened to be standing in the lobby when I arrived.
