Friday’s Photo: C.R. Laine and Tracy Hiner statement walls

One of the most talked about, Tweeted, Instagramed and photographed showrooms at Fall High Point Market was the C.R. Laine showroom. Not only was their furniture and new decor beautiful but the walls…oh my goodness… THE WALLS!

The custom designed wallpaper by Tracy Hiner of Black Crow Studios blew me away. Giant bright pink flowers on a rich black background made the walls the art and the art the walls.

Have a great weekend everyone and be sure to check out more awesome wallpaper from Tracy and Black Crow studios HERE.

 

Friday’s Photo: Benjamin Moore’s color of the year

The BIG announcement of the “color of the year” by the Pantone Color Institute will be announced probably mid November.This is the color pick everyone waits to hear about with baited breath and will be splashed all over the media.

Over the past few years, some of the larger paint companies have also jumped on the band wagon and have their own pick for color of the year.

Benjamin Moore has announced that Guilford Green HC-116  is their pick for color of the year.

Friday’s Photo:Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin West

One of the trips we made while in Scottsdale last week was a visit to the Frank Lloyd Wright House called Taliesin West. Here are two interesting factoids about the house I thought were worth sharing.

#1. There is not a single straight wall anywhere on the house. Wright wanted the house to appear as if it was part of the landscape so he took great pains to copy the exact angle of the surrounding mountains.

#2. While Wright was alive there was no glass in any of the windows. Again, he wanted the house to be organic and one with nature. After his passing his wife (who was probably sick and tired of daily sweeping out the desert sand and lizards) put in glass.

If you get a chance to visit I highly recommend it. Wright was quite an interesting fellow and the guided tour was quite enlightening.

Who said downsizing has to be boring?  If it’s just the one or two of you isn’t this really all you need? A little table, a few chairs and a fabulous piece of art?

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Friday’s Photo: Headboard alternative

There are so many creative and out of the box ways to create a headboard. This custom painted wood screen is a great way to add color and visual interest to an otherwise neutral and very small bedroom.

Friday’s Photo: It’s all in the mix

The secret to creating a room that has life and interest is all in the mix. Furniture that doesn’t all match and wasn’t all purchased at the same store. A mixture of patterns and textures and art work that speaks to you. These are the elements that give a room soul.

The Hampton Show House library, designed by Greg McKenzie, is a perfect example of this. Greg used a masterful mix of different period furniture, textures and patterns. I love the classic knole sofa mixed with the mid century Lucite coffee table, and the two side chairs piped in thick fringe. The chevron fabric from Schumacher, the graphic wallpaper and the Zebra hide rug add some punch to keep the mostly neutral room from being anything but boring.

I think the whole room is fabulous. Don’t you?

Have a great weekend my friends!
