Grasscloth is Greener

Rich Birch Brown Grasscloth

Gourgeous Grasscloth is “eco-friendly” but not “DIY” friendly.  The good stuff is available through designers and decorators and is not pre-pasted.  Furthermore it’s quite stiff and unforgiving so paying extra for the professional installer is worth it.

The gorgeous texture of grasscloth can pull a room together which contains conflicting traditional and contemporary elements by providing a  distinctive backdrop.

Wonderful Christmas windows take us back to the captivating department store displays of our youth.  This white and silver themed windows glitter with vintage look Christmas baubles reflected in silvery mirrors and lamps.  Richard packs the GLAM window with an array of stunning sparkly decor to create an compelling explosion of light at night.

Pendant Task Lighting is Beautiful

Trestle Light Fixture
Industrial Style Milk Glass & Brushed Nickel Pendants

This vintage style trestle lighting fixture in bronze provides efficient task lighting engendering a sense of history to a standard condo build.

Richard often uses reproduction industrial pendants in new builds and renos to add interest, character and eclecticism.

Pheasants & Balls………………..the autumnal tablescape

We all know about creating tablescapes using objets d’art of various heights etc.  What people often don’t realize it that some decor is “seasonal” and should be switched as seasons change.  Pussywillows and forsythia have no business on your tablescape in October.  Pheasants & balls bring in the rustic feel of autumn and will work right through the holiday season ahead.
