Resolve to Create a Home Office She Will…..

Be inspired by…..Have you ever thought about what you might be able to create from a truly inspirational environment at home. You could create place to contemplate, meditate, pay bills, and create strategies to reach your goals, or just do your work.   Your work space can be functional as well as beautiful.  It should reflect who you are and who you want to become.  Basic elements can set the theme and you can then add items you love as you find them along the way.

Be functional in… with just a little wild side and an unusual element in the light table for your friends to comment on.  This scheme will allow you to use any color with it and give you the basics for years to come.
Experience the whimsical…. display of furnishings, lighting and rug as background is practical yet feminine.  You can collect items in the display case that are near and dear to remind you of all things special in your life and snuggle up in the colorful easy chair to read, listen to music or if you have two, include your best friend for a great conversation.

Love the feel…… of a European Cottage and want to hide all of your work while still being organized these items may fit your bill.  The pallet is cool and serene and yet gives you a sophisticated but homey feeling.  Imagine a great cup of tea at the desk while you pay your bills, write you memoires, or send a note to your lover.
Be calm, edgy, contemporary, yet wild and feminine…… are the attributes of these special items.  Create a great space for organization and to spend your private moments in.  Special wall treatments, artwork, lighting and an artful area rug make up this space.  You could also change the colors of the wall and area rug to a hot and saucy color for a more lively room.

Create large projects……and want a desk the size of a conference table you could have one.  Think about a large table, your choice of chair style, and 10-12 chairs to pull of a spectacular presentation, dinner party, teach art, sewing, or how to make your famous desert to a few of your closest friends.  Put a long sofa down one side and use it as a library table. Use a beautiful accent piece as a buffet, storage or art and throw in a great area rug for color and warmth and you have a winning idea.    

Designer Favorites: Tic Tac Wine Holder

Tic Tac Wine Holder
Well, would you look at that?! Our designers may have just spotted the perfect place to store your bottle of bubbly until New Year’s Eve.  These come in tobacco, kelly green, and white.  They’re glossy ceramic.  Stick with one color or mix and match.  They stack to accomodate wine, regardless of the size of your collection.  And, unlike traditional wine storage, they’ll look sculptural and meaningful–even if your selection is still beginning.

Designer Favorites: Lanterns

Siamese Lanterns
We have a pair of these in one of our furniture vignettes along with their single counterparts.  You can hang them or, think outside the box as we’ve done in our vignette, and put them on the floor.  They’re sure to get more attention than they would in a more expected location.

Designer Favorites: Elise Table Lamp

Elise Table Lamp
What’s not to love about this lamp?  One of Emily’s favorites, this lamp is a stunning combination of limed wood, textured linen, and timeless pattern.  And, with its perfectly neutral palette, it can fit in most any space, though I think it would look perfect in a bathroom or guest room.
