February 3, 2011

You were expecting the groundhog...


It is the Year of the Rabbit…

The Year of the Rabbit


Chinese New Year… promises to be… “quiet, positive and inspiring”.  Rabbit years are generally an excellent time for arts, culture, world diplomacy and focusing on the family.

Looking for that calm, quiet energy….

A livingroom and kitchen make-over is on my plate…

Inspiration...calm, quiet...relaxing

Looking for that wonderful bookcase to anchor a room?

Certainly a delicious focal point...The Yellow Monkey...a great find!

A perfect pallette of neutrals?

Linen in a perfect embroidered print…

Inspired by a tree of life document from the Travers archive, Windermere has been recreated as an ikat embroidery. The exquisite handwork and attention to detail, is complimented with colour the combination of grey, citrus and yellow on 100% linen ground. The grandiose, all over repeat sets the stage for the drama in any room setting. It is one of a kind!

    Hi Laurie,
    My favs are the acanthus leaf wall sconce and the Belgian fragments. I prefer products that are a bit quirky and not run of the mill. Your store fits the bill!

    Oh my, that Industrial Mold Pendant is fabulous and would look lovely in my “Gilded” barn!

    Your items are lovely.

    This year I am really loving the old metal industrial items and enjoying mixing it in with my more elegant rustic pieces.
