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!

Transforming Your Furniture is Easy

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

We recently participated in a Casart demonstration at Evolution Home, Alexandria Virginia’s premier vintage retailer. We wanted to show how easy it is to use Casart wallcoverings on more than just walls. Furniture pieces that were selected were completely transformed.

Here are a few pictures to show how different the pieces looked after we applied Casart, self-adhesive wallcovering using designs from the Libby Langdon Collection. Granted, wallpaper is not a traditional or first-thought-of-way to refinish furniture — but certainly an easier way than paint or other solutions — especially self-adhesive, peel and stick wallcovering that you can DIY (do it yourself).

Here are some easy-to-do, furniture transformation, before and after photos.

This painted metal table needs some attention. What’s the easiest thing to do? Casart DIY wallcoverings!

We simply placed the wallcovering beneath the glass table top section of this painted metal table and rested it on the lip that holds the glass top.

A glass front cabinet could use a little oomph to stand out.

Voilá! Chic Chevron from the Libby Langdon Collection is used on the vertical to transform the look of a glass front cabinet

We like the side movement of this Chic Chevron “zig-zag” for this piece rather than the conventional up and down pattern. Now the piece is modern-vintage.

Even “disfigurations” in furniture can be concealed with Casart wallcoverings.

Etagere needs some transformation. See those paint globs and scratches?

The Libby Langdon Groovy Gate pattern completely camouflages any imperfections. Wow!

Don’t see them now! Casart camouflages. Libby Langdon Groovy Gate Hampton Beige was used.

An oval table at Evolution Home could use a transformation with Casart removable wallcovering

Libby Langdon Lively Lattice in Icy Blue was simply adhered on top of the glass on the table. We used the oval shape of the glass to trace and cut out the piece. This way, you can see where the pattern will align.

It was a lovely jewelry cabinet before but now stands out more with a Casart backing. Libby Langdon’s Lively Lattice in Icy Blue was the chosen pattern for this piece and placed on the inside of the glass door.

You can see the all of the finished furniture pieces below. They all look great!!

Oh, we didn’t forget about the walls; we used a custom rust Khatacross from the MoRockAnSoul Collection on the back teal wall as a complementary color. It could be used as an accent piece.

We also used both our natural Faux Tortoiseshell on the black side of the screen and the Libby Langdon Groovy Gate in Midnight Navy on the white side of the screen (see first photo), to give two completely different and very versatile looks. We just flipped the screen around to show both sides. We like pieces that change and are multi-design functional.
