Finding art work that matches your room without breaking the bank.

picstitchOften accessories and art work are the hardest and most time consuming part of creating a coherent look in a room. This guest bedroom has a gold and chocolate color scheme. The bedding is fabulous, and we wanted the art to be as well.

While the scale of the picture makes it took small, we needed to cover quite a bit of wall in this room.  We love our guests, of course, but the guest room is not where we wanted to invest in expensive artwork. SOLUTION: canvases covered in a great fabric.

The photograph doesn’t do this fabric justice. It has too much dimension for my iPhone to catch.  This could be DIY project, or you could pay an upholsterer to build the size and shape canvases that you want.  We prefer the latter because they will be uniform and the fabric will be taught.  What do you think?

Freshen up the look of your home with some of the hot colors for 2013!

bedThe trend for 2013 is bright colors and crisp geometric patterns.  Bedding is fun place to play with these trends because it is easy to switch up from season to season.

Not ready to commit to a new duvet? We have the answer for that.

Choose a neutral duvet and add a pop of color in your accent pillows.  This season, think lime, turquoise, coral or mint to bring a fresh spring vibe into your home.

A Design Solution to Create Symmetry

SymmetryCreating symmetry where architecturally there is none.

A lack of symmetry in design – It’s a dilemma: A sliding glass door on one side of your focal point and a window on the other.  Symmetry does not exist in the room, and so the focal point feels out of place.

SOLUTION! Treat the window the same way you treat the slider.  Notice how we stacked the treatment to opposite sides on each to create balance.

These Hunter Douglas Luminettes shades are pretty, filter sunlight and provide privacy, but unlike a traditional vertical slider window treatment, they work well over a window too.  You could finish this look off with matching drapery.
