New Fabrics and the Resurgence of Draperies

I have started to receive my semi-annual group of new fabrics. Faux silks have just exploded with beautiful lusterous solids and embroderies. Sheers have beaded swirls. I always embrace the new selections to show my clients and offer them the latest.

More on Painting your Walls

There is one great group of interior wall paints that you have just got to check out! Ralph Lauren has a line of paints that create either a metallic, a shimmer, a suede or a rock texture finish to them. They are so nice and the only thing you have to do different is to apply them with a different paint roller. Nothing complicated about the applications but the look is so unique and comes in a variety of colors.The company of Ralph Lauren has a sign-up for designers to get paint chips and other samples. I would really like to have them to show.You have to see them to believe them. All paints are latex.

Beautiful Space Saving for Baths

Ever since we traveled to Europe a few years ago to see my son, I have had my sights set on what is called a "bath screen". In my bath, there is a sheetrock and tile wall for the shower. It is so obstructive. I want the wall taken out and the bath screen put in. Being glass it does the same job as a solid wall but it does not appear to take up any room. It appears very spacious! Photo here shows the idea of it.

A little bit of the home decor forecast for 2010 for you! The economy has cast a gray pall over all aspects of our lives. We long for the bright, warm tropical escapes to help us getaway from it all. Turquoise is the color that represents that. It is peaceful like cool blue waters and healing like the green of nature. Wear it and show it in your personal life. Let it be a bright spot for you this year!
