Wicker and Rattan are Groovy Again

My sister and I had a pair of twin wicker headboards when we were kids.  I remember going to the mall, peeking into World Bazaar, wishing I could have one of those cool hanging rattan chairs.  But the heavy smell of incense made my eyes burn, so I had to keep on walking – and dreaming of a bedroom that looked like it belonged to Laurie Partridge.

Back to the Grindstone and a Request

My vacation ends today, and I’ll be heading back home to get back to work on several ongoing projects – including the professional manual Allison and I are putting together for September’s Psychological Staging™ training course.  We will have 21 attendees earning their Expert in Psychological Staging (EPS)™ certifications in September.  We limited the course to 22, so there is only 1 slot left if you are interested.

Meaningful Art – Restaurant Menu Collection

I hope you enjoyed the dining room to living room transformation I shared at the end of last week.  What I didn’t show you is the “new” dining area.  What I wanted to share today is the art grouping I made with the menus the couple have been collecting throughout their relationship.

Should Your Art Match Your Sofa?

I’ve often heard said that art doesn’t have to match your sofa (or your room, for that matter). The thought is that the la-tee-dah art is so much more important that your furnishings and other decor that making sure it matches is an insult.  I believe it’s an insult not to consider the size, shape, and colors of the art when choosing it for a space.  Don’t you want the art (and room) to look as good as possible?
