Pillow Talk...pattern and style




















I love this bedroom style...a bit shabby...a bit rustic...a bit modern...What works in this design is the final icing on the cake, which is the accent pillows.  It starts with the lumbar pillow on the bed with a beautiful lattice motif, draped by a light blue quilt.  It ends in a cute and curvy settee accented by a variation of pillows.  Layered from a large modern pattern, to the bird pillow...it just works.  Try it!

Happy Wednesday

I'm Back...















 It's amazing how time goes by so quickly...I'm back to posting after a huge absence from blogging!
 Many reasons for not being in contact with reality or too busy with work to write a few words...there are no excuses.
 I will tell you that taking a walk on the beach is priceless. {see attached image}

More news soon!

"Going Turquoise"...


Love this images with key pieces in the turquoise tones which can make any design stand out from the ordinary.  Mixing the beautiful blue takes courage but if we use white as the off set contrasting color, there is no problem!  Whether we have furniture, lamp or even a lampshade it looks sharp...
Happy Monday

"Glass Urns"...
































Glass urns are so much in style now days...The transparency is perfect for any type of filler you wish to do.  In this case, using faux pears gives a casual but elegant look.  The filler can be from fruits to shells...

"A Small Bathroom"...

This small bathroom is so beautiful and traditional.  It sort of reminds me of being on a train ride, being restricted by space but the luxury makes it just perfect.  Love the wood tones and specially the basket under the sink.  I cannot think of a space that is not wasted.  The mix of the old and the modern with the stainless sink bowl is a great design idea and also continuing with the same look, don't forget the plumbing under the sink...it matches.

"Teacups"...



































Can you help me decide which fabric pattern to choose for the new Dress My Shade "teacups" collections.  I love the black and white vintage but also adore the retro style of the colorful one.
