Food Network Magazine: Trays!

High Fashion Home was mentioned in the May 2010 issue of Food Network magazine.  The Melamine Trays have been a big hit since the issue hit the newsstands.  This high concept gift makes for a wonderful Mother’s Day present and comes in a Champagne, Tea, and Breakfast theme. 

Earth Day 2010: Trees! More Trees!

Thanks to all our customers for joining High Fashion Home and the Arbor Day Foundation to help save our planet.  For every piece of furniture sold at High Fashion Home, one tree will be planted through the Arbor Day foundation.  As of March 31, 2010, we have helped plant 9,722 trees.  

Here are some of the benefits one tree can make for years to come:
  • One tree can absorb more than a ton of carbon dioxide
  • Over the course of 50 years, a single tree can control $31,500 of soil erosion.
  • Trees help maintain clean water supplies.
  • One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen a year.
My math says our trees will help produce 2,527,720 pounds of oxygen in the next year.  Thanks to all of our great customers for helping the world breath a little bit easier.

All Tied Up

High Fashion Home is fit to be tied this Spring! Ohhh, haha it never gets old… okay, it does and I promise you that is the last one I use.

I *HEART* Emmas Design Blogg

Pssssssssssssssssssssssssssst! I have a little secret I have been guarding very carefully. It’s my borderline obsession with Emmas Design Blogg. I love Scandinavian design and white walls, muted palettes, pops of unexpected color, wood floors, gray and brown accents. (I lived for a year in Stockholm and to this day I want to move back. Jag alskar Sverige!) I used to save the photos she posted in my inspiration file but then I realized that I was saving basically every photo. Each day I pour over her blog to drool over some other perfectly lit airy space that could be a part of my ideal dream flat.
And then I added her blog to my blogroll of faves on my personal blog. But no one except my Mom and Dad read that. So now I’m sharing with you. Shhhhhhhhhhhhh.
(you’re welcome)

A Fashionable Life

My dear friends at Harper’s Bazaar have given us a treat in their latest April issue! They have taken us into the home of American Idol producer Simon Fuller and wife, Natalie Fuller. Their rebuilt 1920s home, located in Beverly Hills, is elegant and classic with 1940s and 50s pieces that are made very chic and modern with textiles.

Natalie Fuller on their staircase in a Victoria Beckham gown.

I love the pop of color of the sectional with a clean and neutral background. It really makes a statement.

The formal living room which has a pair of
1950s Italian railway chairs designed by Gio Ponti and Giulio Minoletti.

I love the classic clean look of this room that looks out towards the patio. The leopard print silk velvet on the 1950s Italian chairs is just striking in the room.

Natalie, in Michael Michael Kors, in their dining room. The 1940s Ico Parisi dining chairs compliment the table and the chandelier is amazing.

The bedroom with a flawless chandelier that is to die for!

The best thing about this house, in my opinion is the wine cellar. The cellar is filled with bottles given to couple on their wedding day. The cool thing is that Natalie has listed each bottle with the name of the guest who gifted it to them and when they visit, they share the bottle with each respected person.
The view of the rear garden and pool are amazing!
