Courting Fall Colors!

I was in Upstate New York this past weekend. My eldest and her trusty steed needed help moving back up to school.  As we drove along the thruway I noticed that the leaves were actually starting to change on some of the trees. Could it be that Fall is really here? On my long drive home I thought about all the gorgeous tones that relate to Autumn and how lately I have been drawn to richly colored rooms.
I know that it's still 90 degree plus heat in many areas but it's never to early to daydream about paint and fabric! Here are some spaces that I am smitten with and that bring in the feeling of Fall with making a theme statement.  Maybe some of these may inspired you to bring  a touch of Fall color into your roost this season.

Designers Bringing Sexy Back!

I cannot believe that it's the end of Summer! Where did it go? It was a Summer of loss and change yet I don't want it to go away. I thought I would leave you with some sexy furniture to ease the end of Summer blues. These designers have done a wonderful job of creating timeless yet sexy pieces. I hope you like them as much as I do. I wish everyone a lovely and safe last weekend of Summer. Cheers!

Hood Wink!

We are in the process of helping a client replace an existing range hood. Do you remember anything "wink" worthy growing up when it came to range hoods in our kitchens, not I!  These days the sky is the limit when it comes to range hoods. Hoods can be simple or ornate, metal or stone and even plaster! It is amazing the design thought that goes into something that is now the center of our kitchen. I found some amazing hoods out there! What's your favorite hood simple or go for broke?  Name your favorite from 1 -15. Happy Hump and Hood Day!
