Never Got The Memo…

NGTMBC

I finished my first book! (Insert Happy Dance) Rewrite after rewrite, I now feel comfortable moving forward to list on Amazon.  Hoping it will be available on Amazon by Christmas 2017…if not January 2018.

Simply put this is a LOVE story, but not the typical LOVE story!  It’s part memoir and part experiential, with the emphasis being on how I designed, painted and wrote my way through this very crazy and subjective thing called life!

The book shares an awareness that might even shift your own perspective!  The HERO of the story is LOVE, and the Heroine is, Letting Go!

I will do a future post and include a link to order!

Stay Tuned!

LOVE Me A Touch of Rattan…

Rat5

It’s probably my LOVE for a great eclectic/touch of bohemian…interior design choice…for the reasons that I crave for a GREAT rattan chair in the corner!

Rat6

Are they the most comfortable chair in the room?  Hell no!  But they’re there for the form  and not the function!

Rat7

To me, a room should be a layered with textures, and this is just another way to add texture to the room!

Who Doesn’t Like A Good Tile Job…

Encaus6Encaus4

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

Jute For A Moment or For Awhile…

Jute 1

Ok…so this week I’m a JUTE RUG bender! I LOVE me some JUTE…possibly just a touch for a moment…or for awhile!

Jute6

I LOVE the texture of them!  Plus the price allows one to enjoy it for awhile and then possibly seek something new without feeling too guilty for changing it out!

Think of it as an accessory…for the room. When you’re bored or the season changes…switch to something else!

Jute7

I especially LOVE to layer them!

Jute5

I do prefer SEA GRASS, I feel that it’s stronger of all of the weaves.

Jute2

Super cool…HEXAGON!  Whether hexagon, square, round or rectangle!  A fresh feeling for any area of the home, especially in the warmer climates or during certain times of the year.   Here is the link to the hexagon rug.

Fusion of eclectic styling…old, new, modern and antiqued…fused into one fabulous interior presentation.

Adding what I feel is the most mandatory aspect of all in living spaces and that is “HYAGE”, pronounced hoo-ga…which is the Danish phrase for LIVING SIMPLY. Which entails, creating an incredibly warm and welcoming living space.
