Faux Fun

Hi folks,

As we all know, it has been a rough go of it recently.  Too much snow, freezing temperatures, shoveling and hazardous roads...  You know, New England, in the Winter!!!  So, it's a must to keep nice and cozy in your home.  Lately, I have been playing with some faux-fur, and other accents, to keep my design spirits elevated.  A fur throw for the bed offers an exotic, warm and sexy element to the bedroom.  With their bright tones and colors, a faux fur pillow adds some whimsical fun to any young girl's bedroom.  While we're at it, a faux wool blanket bearing his fave sports team is great for the young boys of the family.

                                                                                          
                                                                                                                             Everyone in the family loves fuzz on the feet, in form of fur...  That warm, soft feeling is to die for in the cold of winter.  These faux fur rugs are great for the den, living room and of course...  the bedroom.  They come custom made to order or stock, ready made.  These rugs have come a long way. The materials are very high quality and look and feel like the real thing.




So, cozy up, is the winter is the comfort phrase for the season!!!  We shall all get through this season.  Warm temps are around the corner and Punxsutawney Phil can find another den!!!






As usual, don't be afraid to decorate, even in the winter.

WARMEST,     

Robin

For The Love Of Lattice!

Hi Blog Readers!

Welcome back, we have all had a rough few weeks here in the Northeast with the impossible snow storms and blizzards and with more on the way.With that being said I would like to talk about more pleasant thoughts,wallpaper and decorating ones home! My all time favorite as well as those of my clients are lattice patterns in wallpaper. This pattern concept is widely used because it can work in large spaces as well as small ones. It is a pattern that never goes out of style and with the large array of color tones it has become very popular in most home decor.I find this mainly to do with the fact
 that whether your home is traditional or contemporary the lattice works every time, and it is never a design  mistake because it is a classic! The over all geometric quality of the lattice pattern is so easy to live with depending on your color choice. Light neutral color palettes for large spaces like hallways and foyers, and bolder tones in smaller spaces like powder rooms and small offices or one accent wall in a bedroom!
So folks as I always say, "don't be afraid to decorate!"

Best,
Robin
