A cup of tea

February 27, 2013

The many uses for beautiful teacups. Do you use tea cups for anything out of the ordinary? I don’t but sure do like the idea of storing all my precious jewels in them!

I have been driving around with  the March 2013 House Beautiful on my front seat, thumbing through it when I have a second and this room just speaks to me. In an interview the designer said she used 6 wallpapers in this house. My hero! Check out the detail on the drapes, the pattern on the rug and those pretty chairs! I love this and hope you do too.

Happy Weekend!

Happy Valentines Day

February 14, 2013

I totally hate this holiday but with kids it such a good excuse to uby them lots of cute little treats. And I did break down and buy husband a sappy card too. I beat him to the punch because despite the “don’t get me anything rule” he always does something sweet and I’m that girl who hates the über lovey dovey  stuff. Totally makes me squirm!  If you know me, you know I was not born with that gene. Hence hating this holiday.

 Do you have that rule and break it too?

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Lovely Details

February 13, 2013

When you add window treatments to it will transform that room.  When you add details to a window treatment whether you are creating custom drapes or embellishing some ready made ones it totally elevates the look. I love the special trim to perk up a plain shade or a fun pom pom to at that touch of whimsy to a traditional room. Banding, trimming and color blocking are all ways to make that window treatment stand out.

Be creative and it will totally pay off!
