Simplicity!

dr-drapes

dr-drapesFinally I am back from our fabulous Italy vacation. I read along time ago that once you travel to Italy once, it then becomes your passion. I have been going every year for the past 10 years, and I couldn’t agree more! I especially love when I can combine my two passions, decorating and Italy. I must admit, even when I am on vacation I go in to every furniture and home decor store I find. The Italians just have a way with fashion, and I can’t help but notice, simplicity seems to work best. Designing this dining room for my  Burlington client I knew simplicity would be the way to go. Dining room table and chairs are solid wood, Canadian made by Bermex, the cabinet is from the always fabulous Hooker Furniture. The fabric I selected for the drapes is a simple white light weight fabric with just enough bling in the silver starburst pattern, to bring out the bling in the fixtures. Not a lot of fuss in extra furniture pieces, clean and simple works best. I loved how the custom drapes added the elegant finishing touch!!

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”

Yes I know I say it often, but I can’t help myself, I really do love the furniture industry. And there is no better time of year for furniture than Highpoint Market. The furniture manufacturers launch their newest collections, the showrooms are done to perfection and all who attend are motivated and ready to work. This year was truly a delight, with the new launch from Rachael Ray, case goods by Legacy and upholstery by Craft Master. Just like her personality, bright , cheery and full of fun and style, I look forward to seeing the new Rachel Ray product in the local furniture stores.hp 6hp 7So much good to see from so many different suppliers. This is one time I will say the picture is worth 1000 words, so I’ll stop typing and just let you comb through a small sample of the inspiring showrooms. Have fun and enjoy!!hp 9hp 8hp 5hp 4hp 3hp 1hp 10
