Who doesn't love a little shine in their life? The glossy lacquer finish continued to be a dominant finish at market. Bungalow 5 was showcasing their kelly green pieces and navy was seen at both Bungalow 5 and Worlds Away. Both colors stole my heart as you can guess if you have seen my home. A little pop of modern makes a whole room. These pieces would be great in an entry or anywhere you need to create a little drama.
Art is so personal, it can be a difficult item for me to select for clients. I truly believe anything goes as long as it speaks to you. I have pieces that I have spent good money on and I have pieces I love just as much that were mother's day gifts. What I am sure about, is that art can transform a space. And the only thing I advise against is something that is too common. It's more fun to have something other than the print sold at Hobby Lobby, Bed Bath and Beyond and Michaels. Here are some that I thought were fun from Soicher Marin.
I love a good ceramic lamp. It's modern and traditional all at the same time. Thanks to Tim Bergman I found a great company at High Point that has a ceramic lamp program where you get to pick from 35 great colors. You can customize your base and get a lacquered shade. It's awesome. So if you need a new lamp to freshen up your room give us a call.
For those of you following me, I'm really trying to post each day Monday - Friday but I took a break this last Friday and Monday. I was in Minneapolis with Ellie for a volleyball tournament. It was a long weekend but I had a lot of fun. Went with some great moms and this group of girls are really amazing. They are great volleyball players but more importantly they are kind. So thanks Southwind for a great experience.
I stumbled upon this line years ago when I fell in love with the dakota dining room table. Their showroom in the main building 2 years ago was a fun place for high end furniture. This year they opened their own showroom walking distance from the main building. It was one of our last stops but it was good we got it in as once again they were stocked full of great design.
