New from Schumacher...

it's fall and that means new fabrics, new products, new things you must have and old things you must do away with (or cosmetically alter)...

which is why you might need some fresh new fabrics...but, have you checked out Schumacher's website lately, well their new fall collections are available for preview...

among them is a collection from Celerie Kemble, featuring some great graphic prints, a floral, and some solids as well...

I'm really excited about this one called Betwixt, esp. in this color: Spark/ might just make it into my home this fall!!

Simple Beauty...

I am up to my ears in deadlines this week and probably the next...I haven't been this busy in a long time. But, with all this work I always find time for inspiration...

Simply Beauty, like this vignette, pulls me back and helps me remember not to neglect the areas of my home that require small scale style and a personal touch...

Paneling to love...

This is one thing I wish we had in our home...paneling. I don't know why, but it just really speaks to me!! Whether it's new or not, there are so many ways to treat these walls! Of my favorite is the painted version, but done right all wood paneling can look fresh as well...

(Southern Accents/Sept. '08)

My favorite...all one color, and this color is just right! A slightly masculine style to this office, but with this color, it becomes more balanced...

(House Beautiful/Aug. '08)

I fell in love with this house when I saw this room and it's unique paneling. I say unique because framed out in these panels are grass yoga mats!! Creating a very comfortable dining room, where without could be left a bit too formal.

(Elle Decor/Sept. '08)

This is my kind of wood paneling, Nate Berkus you've done it again!! I love the contemporary grid pattern and what looks to be the leather inlay!!

(House Beautiful/ Sept. '07)

Go for a contrasting look and you'll make the right statement, this room is all about the paneling choice! Designer Garrow Kedigian used a black linen wallpaper here, but I'm sure a paint would do the trick if you're on a budget!

(Domino/April '08)

A more simple but affective approach is beadboard paneling, can have a modern feel, if you run it floor to ceiling with minimal moldings. But I love that designer Peter Dunham even thought to panel the door!! What a great place for more art!!

High style finds...on Etsy!

I was so excited when I heard about Kelly's shop High Street Market a few weeks back...which features little chic vintage finds at great prices even! So I've been frequenting every so often to see what's new in store, of which I am always excited and surprised, that I thought I'd feature a few items for you to check out...
