Timeless Furniture…

Club Chair4

I’m obsessed with these chairs…classic art deco club chairs!

This particular chair along with a Chesterfield sofa…TIMELESS!  They can be dropped into any interior and you instantly warm it up with its effortless elegance.

They’re Reading My Mind…

Frilly

Welcome to Frilly…a clothing atelier that lets you be the designer.

I don’t know about you…but how many times have you selected an item of clothing only to say, “I wish this item had long sleeves or different collar!”  Well…now you can play fashion designer!

Welcome to Frilly!  First, you select the particular clothing item…then you select the color of the fabric.  When that image comes up, you then have the option of changing the collar, sleeves, and hem!  Okay, how fabulous is that?

Who Doesn’t Like A Good Tile Job…

When creating a new tile presentation or re-doing an old one…why not GO ENCAUSTIC?

If you’re designing a room or entire house most consumers main objective is to create something that is timeless.  This is virtually impossible, the only way you can possibly create timelessness is with pure white…but even with that color choice…tile and design sizes change through the decades.

For instance what you like now, might not be what you would like or fashionable 10 years from now.  Plus, the colorways that are currently strong, will not be the same tones desired 10 to 15 years from now.

Take green for example…90’s it was Sage Green, 2000’s it was Chartreuse Green’s, and now for 2010’s it Emerald Green.

So trying to stay classic and clean?  Stay neutral!

Though beige years are really “so last decade”, we are now currently enthralled with the gray tones.  Or dare I say “gray-eige”, for those who still embrace, tans and beige tones!

TILE ON!

Powder Room Surprise…

MoodyBath5

What I LOVE about a powder room is that they can be such an element of surprise!

Even for those who tend to decorate on the conservative side.  I see and hear it on a daily basis those that want that element of impact as you open the door to their powder rooms.

MoodyBath3Whether that drama is created through tile, paint or wallpaper…today’s consumer wants to step out-of-the-box a little more…and that box is anything typical!MoodyBath1

No Assembly Required…

We are just going to file this under “what the hell!” Seriously? Ikea chairs sold at Barneby’s auction for $65,000.00…yes that is I K E A chairs.  I wonder if these chairs referred to as clam chairs…still had their original “allen wrench’s?”

The real story is that the dealer’s mistook the chairs for Danish Architect Philip Archtander originals, thus elevating their true value.  But even though they were a case of mistaken identity…there are pieces highly sought after by collector’s from earlier Ikea Designer creation’s.

Ikea was opened in 1943 and here are some of the pieces that have sold for well over Ikea’s well known economical price point.
