Come in and have a seat!

Bench seating has come a long way from being the furniture piece outdoors or the common restaurant seating.  Now, you can add bench seating into your home in dynamic ways.  Bench seating can be added to your eating area, it can be used as a stand along piece as well as a hall piece.  Have fun with it and be inspired in the process!

Contemplating Spring Design Before It Has Sprung!

How about a little Spring ideas to get us through the Winter!

Yes, it is still winter but the first sign of spring is popping up all over the place. I am talking about pillows with shapes of petals sewn onto them, creating an extremely plush and fun floral accessory. It's a look to remind us of the season of rebirth, renewal and growth. 

Add square petal pillows to furniture with curved lines. The pillows add extraordinary texture in a plush but delicate way. 

Petal pillows can be picked up through a variety of retailers, and they range in shape, size, colors, materials and price

Try felt petal pillows for a cozy, casual look that resembles a bevy of flowers gathered together. The natural tones of the wool felt adds tons of yummy texture without being loud. They look almost furry — perfect for a sofa.

If floral pillows don't do it for you then adding color and touches of real flowers to remind you of spring this winter will excite your senses and give you something to look forward to!  Happy Designing!

Designs Ideas for 2012


2012 brings forward old ideas remodeled according to new trends, effortless elegance, vivid colors, striking and out of the ordinary combinations and contrasts. This year, we should all embrace colors that we wouldn’t normally associate, combine intense shades with balancing tones and think out of the box, giving our home a brand new personality.

Dare to celebrate neon shades, using fluorescent green, yellow or pink, delivering thus new accent elements to your freshly decorated interior. Since these powerful colors tend to draw attention, combine them with neutral shades such as white and gray that will soften the visual impact. The striking atmosphere thus achieved will definitely be one of a kind.

Make up elegant color combinations like black and gray, black and silver, light blue and gray, emerald and white, gold and white, orange and gray, lavender and white, tan and black. You can also mix styles, using a minimalist interior with accent furniture elements, like an art nouveau armchair in neutral, natural colors (black leather, cinnamon or brown velvet).

And in the end, if none of this works for you then, just be sure to invite your own uniqueness into your space.  By doing so, you will always have a place that you'll enjoy!
