I had to stay up till 1 a.m. last night to find out how they worked veined mirror panels into a bathroom redesign. What they did was to replace the inset panels of the bathroom vanity cabinet doors with mirror panels and they did the same to the inset panels of the bathroom door. It was a nice bit of sparkle and class added to the bathroom. I used toothpicks to prop the eyelids open so I could hang in there to the end of the show and see the result. It was worth it!

I love to discover the new and unique in interior decorating to bring to my clients. I want them to have what you do not see in everyone else's home. Today's unique for you is in the category of wallpaper. You would not believe how much things have changed!
This is not your grandmother's striped floral wallpaper that you remember as a kid. Ralph Lauren's"Yacare Crocodile" in red creates beautiful textured walls for that special room in your home. I have seen it used in powder rooms and dens. Another good idea is on the backwall of bookcases.
Next blog will have another unique wallpaper I found for you. This is the best part of interior decorating, to work with the latest designs.

I have just finished 2 days worth of design and decorating seminars. One of the topics was on giving free teleseminars on design. I will soon be giving you information on how to get in on a free call on interior decorating. Pajamas and jeans are the dress code for this great idea from the comfort of your home. Stay tuned for more!

I have added Wall Words to my design business. It is cool graphics, quotes and designs fpr your walls, mirrors etc. I just finished my first home party order. I cannot wait to see the finished result from this one client of mine who ordered wall design to do one whole wall in her kitchen. The room is yellow and the wall will feature blue and white china, artwork with hydrangeas and Wall Words graphics in the blue of the china and with some vines, leaves and flowers of the blue and white dish design. Wow.
The photo shows my Wall Words display that is my spring board for possible designs for my clients. Everyone has family photos so I created one side with a photo display and wall graphics. The other side is to show some of the graphic art that is possible.
