Beautiful Interiors, my weekly newsletter, was about wallpaper just a bit ago.
I noticed some more great stuff to share with you. We have also talked a bit about
the color wheel and complementary colors, (blue and orange are my faves) and found a perfect
combination by the Wallpaper Collective. Check them out! Decorate your rooms with color and art you love.

Another great find was who did the Novogratz wall art for a children’s bedroom.
It’s Duggal Visual Solutions in NYC. Here is what they did for the Novogratz team.
Wallpaper by Novogratz & Duggal

They have produced some beautiful art that you can enjoy everyday. Check them out as well.

The owner of this space realized the value of eye contact
and wanted the reception desk to be facing the entry door.
We weren’t sure when this big piece (reception desk) would
fit into the budget but Lynda Louden Interiors did want to
show how the built-in could work until the reception desk
was decided on, ordered and received. So Plan B is below.

Moving is such a big job. Having a great team makes takes some of the edge off.
Will it fit? Where do I put everything? What needs to change in the new space?
There may be pros and cons that you have to work with, bigger/smaller spaces,
more windows, less windows. That’s what I’m doing right now. We want to keep
the same style as the current office. But we have a larger space and so need
to re-configure the furniture. Have a look at Plan A and Plan B.

Plan A is first. We are working with the built-in reception desk. The style is Chinoisiere.
You can’t see this in plan view but stay tuned and we will show style in the elevation.
The red coffee table (4) is “Happy Family” The round pedestal table (7) is to give visitors pause;
they can then turn to see the receptionist who is greeting them. (6)

 

 

Knoll Fabric: Utrillo

Knoll Fabric: Utrillo

I visited Room Renovation in Hallendale FL last week for a Continuing Education Credit. (CEU) Beautiful showroom and great designers, please stop in and browse. The CEU was all about Textiles. History of Textiles. We started with the Bauhaus and ended with Knoll Fabrics.

This quiet stripe would look real sharp on a slipper chair.

Once home I stockpiled books on this fascinating subject. Fabric. Hand woven. Machine made. Wrapping a newborn in a blanket, what to wear each day, tying a string around your finger so you don’t forget, parachutes, window treatments. Go through your day and see how much fabric is there. Your baseball cap, your sneakers. Cloth napkins. Carpet. Costumes. Prom gowns. Wool, cotton, silk,
the list is endless and each one a miracle.
