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?

Home Staging Comes Full Circle

Over five years ago, I staged an occupied home in Franklin for some friends who were moving out-of-state.  It sold to a family who were new to the Nashville area.  The new homeowners soon contacted me about helping them decorate their “new” home.  It was a fun experience working with two different clients with different furnishings in the same house!

It’s been a busy week around here!  I worked with three new clients – one of them even had the welcome sign out for me on her front porch when I arrived:

Could Mint Green Be the New Spa Blue?

For many years, no one wanted mint green anything.  But over the last couple of years, mint green has been everywhere.

Lately, I’ve seen it finally trickle down into home decor.  And I’m loving it!  The most current light greens are not olive or sage or limey.  The freshest green paint colors are a bit like retro jadite, a slightly grayed mint.

How to Break Up with Your Sectional Sofa

I’ve been working with a lovely client from Memphis who recently moved to Nashville with her new husband.  Her husband brought a very large sectional made up of five pieces to their marriage.
