There is nothing more satisfying than finding the Perfect Lamp to finish off a room. Lamps, lamps, lamps, they come in every size, shape, material, and style you can imagine. I have gathered some of my favorites that are my go-to lamps for most of my projects and put them all in one place for you to check out. Let me know which style is your favorite. Me…I like sparkly things so I generally run to the crystal lamps. But I do love a good gord style just as much. Then…there are those time when nothing but a great iron lamp will do. Good thing there are choices! Take a look here. Enjoy!
Ten Bedroom Decorating Ideas from my Design Portfolio.
The Bedroom is by far one of my Favorite spaces to design and decorate.
It can be a fun, serious, a room that is a sanctuary, a room for guests, a room for kids, the list goes on and on. I think that’s why I love to design and decorate bedrooms the options are endless. Could be because I have design SO Many! Every project has 2-3 and sometimes 4 bedrooms. Practice makes perfect? I’ve gathered a variety of bedrooms from my portfolio. Had to limit it to ten…could have gone on and on, but decided to start with ten.
I must admit the reality of my job is that a BIG portion of it is shopping.
As a designer and lover of all things home and home decorating I shop ALL -OF -THE -TIME. I may not be looking for anything in particular, but shopping is my thing. Thank goodness for me, it truly is all part of my job. Admittedly these days it is much easier for just about anyone to find just about anything they could reasonably want by simply searching the internet.
Transformation Tuesday The Renovation of a Windsor Vero Beach Billard Room
You know how much I love a good before and after story! Today brings the complete transformation of a Billard / Media Room of a Windsor Home.
What was once a dark, green cavern we transformed into a rich textural room without much more than wallcovering, paint and new furniture?
The basic elements of the room are all the same. The dark stained beadboard ceiling and wainscoting. Even the door trim was white previously, you just couldn’t see it behind the dark green damask draperies. All few new light fixtures updated the room although still very traditional, the new light fixtures relate to all the other elements in the room. We used an A-Mazing black and tan color combination along with tons of texture to bring the room a comfortable easy feel. Raffia walls and patterned sisal rugs are a great neutral backdrop while the leather recliners ( yes – I said recliners!) I hate them as a whole, but sometimes I just have to give in. The art on the wall is black and white photos of African wildlife and are grouped in pairs with wall sconces on each side.
