Look What’s Popping Up Everywhere

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

Spring is nearly here and we have to get through a bit of rainy season before flowers start to bloom. However, you can see poppies and other botanical art popping up all over the place. At least we still don’t have this type of dichotomy — snow falling while tropical dresses grace shop windows.

Soon enough we’ll have real flowers but in the meantime, we predict you’ll be seeing a lot of them a lot sooner everywhere else.

Look at this beautiful poppy rug as art work by Grand in Road.

We have had a tendency to reference Grand in Road lately because we are liking their new-found look and philosophy.

We agree that the outdoors as well as indoors should be looked at differently — with art and personality in mind to create ambiance and interest.

We like the bold statement artwork they are featuring, with its quirky and colorful nature. We also like the handpainted look to this printed giclée, Bessie Cow below.

A 36″ square print is on sale right now for $153, discounted from $189.

We have similar work with a ‘handpainted’ quality by artist Ann Alger, who’s created a Bloom series of botanical artwork with photographic digital manipulation. Although ours is not on sale at present, it comes in a variety designs and sizes. The closest size to the one above is 36 x 24 for as low as $41, as seen with the Peony in Pink.

White and Pink Peonies has a more muted color and there are many others to view on our website.

We have other flowers that never fade or need watering and make an artistic and spring-like, decorative statement.

If you’re as crazy for a floral pattern as we are, go overall flowers, with Flower Power.

Our other prediction where you’ll see flowers popping up is in fashion. We love this flowy, floral dress.

You’ll see many tropical, floral dresses in the market. Must be coming from the long winter we’ve had and wishing spring was already here. Only 2 days to make it official!

How Do You Want Your Home to Feel?

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Going into 2015, you may want a change or to have a new direction for your personal space. How do you want your home to feel?

This is the question that Laura Gaskill, a contributing writer for Houzz, asked in one of her  ideabooks, “The Question that can Make You Love Your Home More.” As she said, asking ,”How do you want your home to feel,” is a surprisingly, yet “deceptively,” simple question to ask, because it gets to the heart of the matter about what makes the idea of  ‘home’ so important to us.

As Gaskill states, “Defining the feelings you want to cultivate in your home will give your home a purpose. It will help you zero in on the results you want and worry less about each little decision along the way.”

Here’s the short quiz, from her ideabook you can take that will lead you to the answers:

Ask the question. Ideally, ask the question of yourself, and have each person who shares your home also answer the question. Below I have phrased the question a few different ways — sometimes a slightly different angle can help unlock your answer:

  • How do you want your home to feel?
  • How do you want to feel when you walk through the front door?
  • What do you wish guests would think about your home when they come over?
  • What are the top three words you would use to describe how you want your home to feel?

Once you have your answers, continue to the ideabook’s tips for bringing out those feelings in your home.

Some of the tips include ways to achieve the following:

  • If you want your home to feel relaxed
  • If you want your home to feel creative
  • If you want your home to feel peaceful
  • If you want your home to feel welcoming
  • If you want your home to feel fun
  • If you want your home to feel authentic
  • If you want your home to feel safe
  • If you want your home to feel happy

There are resource articles for each one of these topics.

Finally, there are lots of comments and ways you can glean information and tips for achieving the look you want.

As she asks, “Your turn: How do you want your home to feel? Please share your answer in the Comments.”
