Thankful for Thanksgiving Colors

When we think of Thanksgiving, we think of all the things we are thankful for while usually gathering around an abundance of food to celebrate with family.

Here are some visual reasons to be thankful for Thanksgiving colors.

You can also use this list with links to recipes to cook your Thanksgiving Day meal.

The humble turkey is typically the foundation around which the Thanksgiving meal is planned.

Sweet potatoes or yams are another orange alternative, as from If You Haven’t Already with their recipe for Brown Sugar Glazed Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows.

In the South, we smother ours with marshmallows….yum, a vegetable dessert!

OK, gotta get a green in there. Often it’s green beans maybe with almonds or bacon (or both) — you decide.

But if you’re to add bacon, you might as well consider brussel sprouts. They taste much better than you might think, plus they have more nutrients and are considered a “super” food.



Of course corn pudding never disappoints, especially this down-home recipe from the Food Network. It has a golden-yellow goodness.

As does, our wallcovering.

Can’t forget dessert!

Well, we’re back to orange because what would Thanksgiving be without the anticipated pumpkin pie?

Mural Mural on the Wall

Have you noticed all the murals lately featured not only in interior design magazines, but also in catalogs?

There is an ongoing trend we see to have the background focus be on murals.

One might be inclined to ask, “Mural mural on the wall…who’s the fairest of them all?” But we think they are all lovely!

We’re glad to see this coming back in fashion because it certainly personalizes a room, adds interest and in many respects opens up and enlarges the room by making the walls visually disappear.

As noted in quotes from this recent Telegraph article, the mural is coming back in style:

“The intricate artistry of classical stories painted on to walls is not only to be found in Italian villas, but is creeping back into modern interior design in luxury homes, replacing the slick, minimalist look….Luxury home owners are increasingly taking interior design to the next level by decorating the ceiling, says Charlie Bubear, head of Chelsea for Savills…Another emerging historical trend is a taste for silk Chinoiserie wallpapers. “They can take hundreds of hours to create, a painstaking and detailed process, but they leave a lasting impression,” says Bubear…These luxury tastes are starting to feed into the mainstream interiors…Companies are selling copies of hand-painted murals printed on to canvas or wallpaper.

This is right up our alley and what Casart coverings specializing in!

Here’s just one take with a modern-folk, Chinoiserie-like Garden of Family Farm Life Mural Panels, by one of our Casart collaborating artists, Kristin Nicholas.

We counted three murals in the latest House Beautiful magazine and  featured on the cover!

This lively and expressive room designed by Ashley Whittaker has a colorful pastoral theme. The color palette takes its clue from colors within the mural. The birdcage chandelier beautifully enhances the mural theme.

Interior designer Lisa Fine uses another deGournay mural in one of her rooms that picks up on Indian, Persian and Turkish influence. This lends a romantic and exotic ambiance.

High-quality, hand painted murals have never really gone out of style but we’re witnessing a resurgence in this type of elaborate decoration with the focus on hand-painting, fine art and quality, as deGournay has always embodied.

Sophie Donelson’s editorial quote gives a good summation as to why this may be occurring,”More than any other place, your home should help you feel your truest self. If you wake up surrounded by beauty, you’ll carry that feeling of joy and confidence all day long..If your own home can’t make you feel gorgeous, what place will?

A mural gives the most custom, personalized detail and attention to any room. It lends character and can express your style through imagery — more than blank, solid or even walls painted in a decorative finish can do on their own. A mural is like the icing on a wall cake and the Godiva of decoration. A mural can upgrade a room to an upscale level of sophistication

Harry Heissman also uses a mural in the entryway to make a visual impact with hand-painted faux agate, which is gorgeous!

Murals don’t always have to be scenic. Although this faux agate is a decorative finish, because it is used on one main focal wall gives it the attention and visual drama it deserves.

Loving the trompe l’oeil (fool the eye) nature of those felt rock cushions!

Of course, we can’t help but love the Paul Vlillinsky butterflies as well!

The use of murals doesn’t stop here; you’ll see them in ads, like this one from Horchow.

And Frontgate recently used a wonderful monochromatic, sepia mural on their cover and inside layout. Love it!! The mural makes the furnishings pop and seem ultra lush.

A Unique Approach to Interior Design

Hey readers! Today, I am here to talk about a interesting and unique approach to interior decorating.

Debraé Little is a very talented interior designer based out of Las Vegas. Debraé Little Interiors specializes in residential, commercial, and hospitality projects. She started her own firm six years ago working in both Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Starting as a Hollywood costume designer, she brought insights learned in Hollywood to the interior decorating industry. Little describes her method of interior decorating to help her clients in a recent interview with Vegas magazine.

“I use [interior decorating] as a measure to define their personality and their personal style.”

Little’s unique approach to interior design is finding inspiration by looking through her clients’ closet. This method is a creative one and seems a little unusual, but she definitely has some logic to it.

“Both, involve lighting, color, texture, the flow or the feel of the fabric. It’s the same principles of construction….”

Having never thought about relating clothing production and interior design, I thought it was a huge stretch at first. But when it comes down to it, both industries involve creative people who design a product to fit a client. Often too, these two industries follow one another — with interior design often incorporating the latest fashion trends. This can be seen seasonally in design markets such as High Point.

Little uses the fabrics, colors, and textures that each of her clients wear to decide what type of style she should use to decorate their homes. This method of getting to know a client’s taste is innovative to say the least, and with her success over the past six years, it is definitely something that has proven to work. Here are some examples her work, which I would consider show a lot of personality.

And, here are a few examples of Little’s work that we can really relate to…

…perhaps because we they remind us of our Faux Padded Harlequin and our Pink Faux Mosaic Glass Tile designs.

Casart-Faux Glass Mosaic Pink-tile in room, as seen on Slipcovers for your walls, casartblogAnother out-of-the-ordinary and perhaps over-the-top-use in decorating that flips the idea of bringing the inside of a closet out into a room to bringing the outdoors inside, is this Global Views, impressive 17-pound piece ($600) using a silverized Mahoni wood sculpture that decorates the light.


This chandelier was also visible at High Point Market.

Little has a unique style that is not easily found. She is especially talented in regards to her selection of irregular products, and creating spaces where they fit seamlessly. We were so inspired by Little’s creativity that we decided to find examples of where Casart coverings products meet fashion.

This group of people seems very interested in clouds just like Casart coverings! We recently launched The Cloud Collection, which features four different types of clouds in 8 colors. That collection also includes a Ceiling Cloud wall covering, which allows for a complete tranquil and stress-free environment.

I am not quite sure what to call this article of clothing, or even if it is just one article or two, but these cools robes/shirts/shorts/shirts match perfectly with our Flower Power Line.

The connections that Debraé Little pointed out between fashion and interior design are thought provoking! Who knew that clothing could give such great insight to give clients that personal touch when decorating?
