Interior Design Ideas: Lighting Elegant

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Interior Design Ideas: Lighting Elegant

There are several types of lighting.  There is task lighting, room lighting, natural lighting and ambient lighting or mood lighting.  The fixture I am showing here is ambient or mood.  This is a beautiful hanging fixture made of glistening cappa shells.  It is lovely and dramatic all at the same time.  I love the look and feel of it.  It makes me want to put a hidden fan at the base of it for a constant glisten.  Very pretty indeed.  I just like the statement it makes in a dramatic room.  A pair could be used on each side of a sofa or something you want to accentuate.  It will definitely bring your eye to the focal point!  Pretty indeed!

Beautiful Lighting For Dramatic Rooms

Have a wonderful day!

Interior Home Decor For Babies

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Interior Home Decor For Babies

My daughter was home from college this last week and it was so wonderful to see her and her boyfriend.  We had a great time together.  We were at lunch a couple days ago at the House of Nanking in San Francisco – by the way, a fabulous restaurant, and I said to them after some chit chat, “Sure would love to be a Grandma.”  Me and my big mouth!

They laughed and my daughter’s friend said her mom asked her the same question.  That was a relief.   Since they aren’t even married yet it looks like I have a while to wait.

You see, there is this lovely baby furniture that I have had my eyes on for years that I think would be perfect for a nursery.  I didn’t tell them about it since they won’t be needing it soon, darn.   I like it because it is different, great looking and very well made.  It is very feminine and would be perfect in a little girl’s room. Who knows what they will choose, but it sure is lovely furniture, so I thought I’d show you, to see what you think.

The bassinet is so beautiful.  It has a stand and hangs from hooks, so great for rocking.  It is extremely well made.  These pieces are heirloom pieces that can be handed down from generation to generation.  The bassinet is custom made iron and the round crib with canopy made of wood.  They can be ordered in pretty much any custom color and the iron can have brass or silver accents.  This takes the custom order time,  but I like that it can be made just the way you want it.

The crib is round and can come with a canopy.  That is definitely unusual.  It is just fun and I have always loved it !

The sweet upholstered occasional chair is cute, cute, cute and kid sized.  Any fabric can be used on it and I just think it is precious.

It is still fun to dream.  I know my daughter and I will have a very fun time when the time comes.  If it’s a boy…future post.

Unique Interior Design Items

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Unique Interior Design Items

I love unusual things.  I have gone into client’s homes or offices and they tell me they want a unique look.  Where do I find unusual?  Well, you’ve come to the right blog because I am going to blog the unusual beautiful designer quality items that I have a passion for and love.  Some are expensive and some are not, just cool.  The quality is always as great as I can find and most of the time there are options for different finishes, sizes and custom details.

When choosing unique furnishings and accessories for yourself always make sure it is your coloring, textures, sizes, shapes and forms.  The more it is like you, or your brand, the more you will love it and be able to live with it for a very long time.  The furnishings are following the fashions, so let’s look at that too, or what style these pieces would go great with.

This is just my opinions, if you have great things you love, let me know.  Include a picture if possible and we’ll see what we like, why we like it and what style we think it would fit with and why.  Must be unique, not seen in every home.  My next blog post will start us off.  I am not mentioning any brand names, if you are interested to purchase, please email and I can give you a price.  Remember all items will be custom ordered and average a couple to a few months delivery time.  They’re wonderful because they are custom fit to you!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Interior Design Ideas – Your Home Interior Design, Business Brand and Your Fashion Statement As One!

Interior design, business brand and your fashion statement – what do they all have in common? The answer to that question is simple, You! You have a unique style. You have a unique coloring. You have a unique fashion statement. I believe as we slow down and reflect we realize we need to stop following the crowd and dare to be individual. How do you determine your style and especially how do you reflect that in your surroundings, in your business life and your fashion statement? This is a very big subject, but lets take a glimpse at some possible ways to determine your unique style.

Your interior design is your own interior expression. Dare to be individual. Dare to use unique items that you love and that attracts attention because they are special and speak of you. Where did you get that?  Think out of the box, just like you do with your fashion statements. There is only one you on this planet and where you live, work and play should look like you, even when you are not there. Your items should tell a story about you, Read More→
