Bubbles everywhere...from a simple black and white pillow to a beautiful classic chandelier to an adorable oval mirror.  The shapes are so soft and clear, that repeating them is a must!

Happy Thursday to all

"Pillow Talk"...plaids and stripes

Plaids and Stripes can be combined with eachother as long as the color palete is the same. These pillows by Tiveron are a perfect example.  The gorgeous large patterns, mixed with the wide stripes looks rich and casual at the same time.

"Pillow Talk"...animals

LOVING this cute animal pillows...the trick is to select the specific pattern for the proper design idea.  The fabric with the circles or bubbles is perfect for the fish.  Notice the eyes and how it's finished with a button.  Each piece after being cut is put through a Serger machine in order to get a very clean embroidery finished at the edges.  These pillows are adorable for child's nursery!

Loving this kitchen knobs from Anthropology!  This is one of the best and easy changes we can give a kitchen or bathroom...even a piece of furniture.  My favourite is the owl and also the monogram.  Wait, I like them all!

"Color Combination" and orange

The issue is always that sometimes we are afraid of color, or should I say, color combination.  Decorating this kids room is easy as 1~2~3.  Following the plan is not difficult @ all, the theme is modern shapes and the colors are so bold.  Navy offsets orange quite well.  Navy is a rich color, especially when mixed with white.  The orange custom leather twin headboards have the perfect tone to add color, texture and interest.  The back wall is what anchors the entire design.

Happy Tuesday!

"Flea market Find"...

Wallpaper can make miracles...and this flea market cabinet was turned into a cute organizer for jewels.  A funky coat of acrylic non toxic paint and some left over wallpaper remnant will do the trick.  An alternative to wallpaper would be a pretty gift wrap paper!

Have a pink Monday...

"Volume and Height"...

This beautiful dining room may be an issue for some because of its high ceiling lines but an elegant and old fashion trick solves the problem.  By installing crown moulding at a lower level and painting it a shimmering golden green colour, makes it elegant and adds interest.  All furniture, lighting, accessories and textiles are traditional but finished in a awesome combination!

"Collecting And Displaying"...

Collecting and displaying your favorite or favourites fine china collections, is as easy as a layered cake.  You can mix colors of the same tone, and arrange them by size and shape.  Little ones go in front and may be large plates or chargers will be place in the back.  Since I love Toile pattern, I found this images which displays several way to accomplish a look!  My china is from Churchill and is black and white but my corner cabinet is a problem to display.  I will try to work on this project this Autumn and will post!

Happy Tuesday!
