Your Seasonal Sanctuary

Welcome Back Blog Readers,

We would like to share with you some of this season's current projects as we get ready for Fall and the holidays approaching. As the weather begins to get colder, we at The Four Walls put comfort and elegance above all else. We want our clients at the end of the day to return to a home that is not only beautiful, but welcomes them warmly. Our dear clients in Weston have a home that perfectly emulates this. The introduction of soft creams and caramels with the marbled and textured grays adds a layer of warmth. This paired with plenty of soft, natural light turns their home into a sanctuary.







So, stop into The Four Walls today and let us help you turn your home into a sanctuary! And, as I always say, folks "Don't be afraid to decorate!"

Best,

Robin

Florence Broadhurst, A Legend Reimagined

Welcome Back Blog Readers,

I hope you are all enjoying the last few days of summer! Over the course of the season, The Four Walls has enjoyed an influx of new and exclusive wallpaper books into the store. Recently, we welcomed a particularly exciting collection highlighting the work of the couturier, artist, and designer Florence Broadhurst.

In 1959, she established Australian (Hand Printed) Wallpapers; which later became known as Florence Broadhurst Wallpapers, "the only studio of its kind in the world." Her studio was the first to print on metallic surfaces, develop a washable, vinyl-coating finish, and create a drying rack system that allowed for her studio to create unprecedented amounts of wallcovering in a single dye lot. By the mid-70's she monopolized the high-quality end of the Australian wallcovering market and was exporting her more than 800 designs world wide.

Her designs are boldly geometric, elegant, and full of Broadhurt's dynamic artistic expression. Her bold and varying color choices also give her designs a flair that is sure to make a statement in your home. York Wallcoverings has recently released an exclusive collection of Broadhurst's designs. Though machine printed, they retain the unique texture and feel of Broadhurst's joyful, yet sophisticated designs.

Window Treatments; A Complementary Look!


Welcome Back Blog Readers,

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer thus far. Today, I would like to talk about window treatments. All too often, I notice that when it comes to room d├ęcor, clients have difficulty when it comes to their windows. They buy beautiful furniture, lighting, and hang great art on the walls, but window treatments are either nonexistent or they just choose ready-made blinds. There is nothing better in my eyes, as a room with beautiful drapery. Not only does it complete the room, it adds privacy.

I have just completed a fantastic design project with amazing clients in Brookline. We focused on the dining room; my drapery fabricator and I incorporated tailored panels, sheer fabrics, and a gold rod for privacy, as the dining room faced the front of the home. The completed look gives a very contemporary feel that my clients had asked for.

One important factor when choosing fabrics for windows is to always try to choose a product of a fine thread count and composition; this is always a factor in the way draperies will hang. Below we used a sheer fabric from Romo & Co., and side panels from Fabricut. Most of all, your window treatments require fine workmanship, as this is the key to a great finished, polished appearance.

So, folks, as I always say, “Don’t be afraid to decorate!”

Best,

Robin
