Not wanting our area to get stale, we switched out the furniture for a fresher, lighter, Spring look for April! What do you think?
For arguments sake, let’s call this the front. The Melina Bed in natural, earth tones flanked by two side tables.
A very rustic Louis Bookcase conjures images of Springtime antiquing trips!
I love the blue velvet used to cover these chairs. It adds a good dose of color to the neutral Louis Dining Table.
The very cool Dome Chair actually blocks out some of the noise when you sit in it! It would be an excellent book-reading chair!
The fabric on these chairs is so soft. People couldn’t help but touch them!
I think this area is my favorite. Adding a little greenery is always a good choice, whether it’s real (in the mini-greenhouse) or fake (on the chair). The Bowling Desk is a great little writing desk, too!
Passers-by in the Galleria seemed to like the pieces we chose for the area. Hopefully, we’ll impress them even more with next months vignette! We’ll keep you posted!
Something about a summer in Paris is really appealing to me right now. Maybe it’s the dreary, rainy weather we’re having in Houston. Maybe it’s the small and architecture-free apartment I’ve been in for close to two years. Maybe it’s the constant reminder of our declining economy from TV to radio and magazines that’s finally getting me down. Either way, I need a vacation, and a trip to Paris would be just lover-ly.
Of course, that involves quite a bit of funding that I just don’t have at the moment. I’ll have to make do with these Parisian (and faux- Parisian) interiors which are tickling my French fancy.
Apparently, the ingredients for a Parisian interior are as follows: 3 parts chevron patterned wooden floor, 1 part ornate fireplace with large mirror overhead, 2 parts French doors with balcony and iron railing, 1 part simple floor-to-ceiling drapes. Voila!
Until I can cross the pond and get over there, I’ll be dreaming of French architecture, French fashion, and (my favorite) French crepes! Au revoir!
We set up shop at the Galleria a couple of weeks ago. Within our 400 square foot boundary, we set up vignettes to communicate the brand and essence of High Fashion Home. Here is our first attempt:
The Angle Vases have been a huge hit.
I’m betting $50 that she has some Starbucks coffee in her hands. This is my artistic photograph by the way.
Don’t let this picture fool you. The weekend traffic in the Galleria is bananas.
I average about 5 teas a day from the good folks at Teavana. Word on the street, ask them to do a recommended mix of tea flavors. I did it last Sunday, and it came out extra tasty.
When you are meeting someone new in person, their first impression is you- how you look, what you say, how you act. When someone comes to your house, their first impression is the front door. Now, you could introduce yourself with a plain jane doormat like this one:
But why would you when you could place on of these at your doorstep?
Which side you face toward potential houseguests is up to you. Doormat from SuckUK.
Because getting through a day of work sometimes can feel like a marathon. Finish Line doormat from Feet First.
