Friday’s Photo: hair on hide rugs

Hi everyone!  I’m just back from High Point Market and must say, it was an amazing experience. I saw SO much and I have SO many photos to share with you of new products and trends I spotted.

Hair on hides is definitely a trend for Spring 2014. I saw hides used on the floor alone, hides layered over larger natural fiber rugs and hides used as upholstery on furniture and pillows.

One of my favorite finds for hides was the Saddleman showroom. I just loved the way they displayed these colorful stamped  Zebra patterns on cowhides.

Now, I know people have very mixed feelings about hides. Personally, I was always adverse to them as I have spent most of my adult life as a vegetarian and I am a HUGE animal lover.  However, having said that, I am somehow attracted to these. Maybe it is because like chicken nuggets, they no longer resemble the animal they once were.

What do you think about cowhides? Would you put one in your home?

Have a great weekend everyone. I will be sorting through hundreds of images and slowly coming down from my High Point “high”.

While at an event this week at the Boston Design Center I noticed two trends that show no signs of fading; large scale lighting and organic elements used as accessories. I especially loved the entrance display at Webster and Company.

That antique lantern is just incredible and although the hefty price tag might not work with all budgets, the succulents in the organic inspired pottery is easy to recreate. As if the Universe was making it easy for me, I stopped at Home Depot on my way home and what did they have? A whole table display of succulents. My weekend project is about to get underway.

Have a happy weekend everyone!

I often challenge my clients to think outside the box when looking for art for their walls. Who said wall art must be flat?  Here is a wall grouping of clay pottery that I saw on display last Spring at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York.

Wouldn’t you smile every time you walked into the room if this happy colorful collection was on your walls?

Have a great weekend!

I’m sorry I can’t find the artist’s name. If any of you know who it is please forward it to me.

Here in the North East we have had quite the Winter. It seems like there has been storm after storm, and right about now everyone is fed up and counting the days until Spring.

While driving home Tuesday morning, just as it started snowing and we received another 10 inches of snow, I passed this barn. It made me smile and reminded me why I love living in New England. Even in the dead of  Winter, the beauty is just incredible.

What about you? Are you too fed up with all the snow and ice or have you been laughing at us from your 70 degree days while walking on the beach?
