Gaga For Guildery!

Haven't you always wanted to find fabric, wall coverings etc that truly can become color matched to your design board? At Guildery there are artisans and a color customizing process that let you do just that! The design team at Guildery transforms the art into decorative fabrics in complementary color stories.  

I love the fact that it is manufactured in the USA and they use materials such as Belgian Linen and other fine materials to really give you a custom look and feel.

Guildery was co-founded by Shane Reilly (founder of Decorati, acquired by Gilt Groupe), and Kelly Berger (co-founder of Tiny Prints, acquired by Shutterfly). Together, with their combined knowledge of digital printing, technology and design, they set out to create a simple solution to get a color-coordinated look.

Here are a few of my favorite picks from Guildery and for more wonderful designs go HERE!

The Mighty Oak

Who would have thought that Oak would be the mighty wood of the moment. When one thinks of oak we tend to think of dark stained heavily grained oak that could be found in some of our grandparent's homes. Thank goodness for the Belgian world of design to expose us to lovely white quarter sawn oak. It is used in it's most natural state as simple white quarter sawn oak with ether wax, clear finish or lime. Sometimes a gray tone  stain adds character but I love it simply natural. I think the mighty Oak will be the hit of 2016 but far from a passing trend!

Yes, This Is Tile!

I was back on one of my favorite tile sites  Cle tiles searching for a client's back splash options when I found something amazing!  This site has a section for artisan tiles, the likes of which  I have not seen before.  My head is spinning thinking of all the ways I could use some of this amazing tile in a future project or selfishly for myself some day.  If I could, I'd put the chinoiserie tile on my Christmas list to Santa for sure. Check out these gorgeous pieces of art and yes, they are tiles.  For more fabulousness go HERE!

Christmas Door Decor!

I just love seeing everyone's Holiday Door Decor! From simple to elaborate it just brings the entry way to life. I had some fun putting together my door this year. With the help of my husband holding that ladder steady I decided to dress up the door pediment in a style influenced by a pagoda topper. Here is a little step by step on how that came to be.

First it started with a measured to scale drawing so I go figure out how many loose greens and pine roping to purchase.

One definitely needs green chicken wire, good pliable and easily cut wire and plenty of nails with large heads but thin stems so as not to ruin the wood around the door.

First the roping and berries were attached to rim of frame and them I measured and cut chicken wire to fit the pediment. I was able to actually weave the loose greenery into the holes and it stayed secure without having to wire in.

Next I bundled loose greens together in a fan shape with wire and used floral wire to pull together the pinecones. The large pine cone was wired secure with heavier gauge due to weight.

First the topper was secured to a nail in clap board and then all the greenery was woven into chicken wired from largest to smallest as filler.

The Holly wreath just added that extra punch of color I needed. Simple large pinecones in planters because I didnt want planters to compete with door.
I hope everyone is deep breathing during this time of year remember to spread a little Peace we really need it.
