Our Arch Nemesis

Palladian Windows

                     gorgeous in their symmetry, deceptively difficult to dress.

Enter the PALLADIAN SHELF!  It holds the blind or shade when there is no existing support between the window and the arch.   It's a little tricky to measure for it,  but this brace is made of strong, lightweight material that can be used on palladian and other custom window shapes as well as unusually tall windows.   

And we know just the person to install it.

                               Simply gorgeous for the sunroom!

More Zebras?

We just can't get enough of animal prints, 
 as you know from our recent post.   

So how about this find in the retail jungle?   


A comfortable and gorgeous zebra sofa for the movie theater room and matching animal prints for the walls. . .   
located in the same consignment shop at the same time in one of our favorite local haunts, but in two separate rooms.  We were so thrilled at the spoils of our "hunt"!

Leopards and Giraffes and Zebras, oh, my?

We are seeing so many wonderful animal
prints in the design AND the apparel
world this season. . . it makes us 
want to go on a  photographic safari!
