Girly is bacccck!

Girly and feminine is baaaaaaack....
 (Tumbler, Eye Candy) 

Designer, Pamela Pierce added these soft colors with the natural linens. The pink and soft greens with a touch of purple creates a subdued girly feel.  The  room is simple, elegant and pretty.

Perfect for spring. If this isn't screaming girly than we don't know what is!

This cottage with the floral drapes and bright pink pillows is certainly girly.

It's hard to see a man living in a real girly room. Would your husbands, boyfriends, brothers, or fathers be comfortable with this style? Would you design your home around a girly feminine feel?
We would love to hear what you think.

Brick and Home Decor......

As we have been visiting other blogs, we are noticing images of brick in home decor.  
When we think of brick and when it was popular, we think about the T.V. show the Brady Bunch. 
Ya, Ya, we know we are showing our age. 
We were really, really, young when that show was popular and remember there are re-runs!

(Image Traditional Home)

We love how designer Amy Morris used it in this hallway. 
The mix of wood creates an interesting pattern.

 Amy also used it in a herringbone pattern.

Love how it was used on the stairs. 
We actually used it in a home that we had designed.
 We used brick on the front of the stairs like this image.
 We wish we would of taken pictures of it . 
There was a messy divorce and our clients have moved and we were not quick enough in getting photos. 

Randy Powers designed this charming breakfast nook.

It also works in a contemporary design. 
We like how the brick is white washed.
 It gives it a lighter feel.

Love how it was used in this image. 
Mona and her sister of Providence LTD blog did such an amazing job.
 If your interested in this chandelier- Mona sells it on her online store.

We have always loved the charm of stone and brick used in home decor.
 Are we going to see more of brick? 
What do you think?  
We would love to know your opinion..

The Blue House ....

Have you ever been shopping on Montana Ave. It is in Santa Monica, California?  It's a fun place for a day of shopping and lunch with friends. We went to this wonderful store called The Blue House. It  has a mix of painted furniture and beautiful antiques. 

We fell in love with this beautiful chair that was painted gray with a hint of blue. The gold on these chairs were gorgeous. 

  Have you painted with chalk paint? This cabinet reminds us of it. Julie has bought 3 cans and is trying to find the time to paint up a storm.  

Love the blue and white china.

Great idea for displaying antique books.

The natural colored accessories mixed with the white has such a crisp look.  

We love using books for display. So many things could be put on them.  Wouldn't coral look great?

The patina blue, ooh la la! 

We have heard how easy it is to use chalk paint. If you want to learn more go to   http://savvysouthernstyle.blogspot.com/ and search her  blog, Kim  has some wonderful tips on how to use chalk paint. 
Check out The Blue House, promise it will be a treat!

Coral, Shells and Decor.

(Designer Tim Clark)
We always seem to be attracted to Coral in design. It is very versatile with many styles of decor. We gathered some images to share showing different settings where coral and shells have been used.

Jeff Hunter used them by just placing them in a basket. He also adds star fish on the mantel.

Jeff Mcnamara chooses a beautiful mirror covered with shells.

Love the blue coral in the shelves.
( Lynn Morgan)

So soft and pretty. Love the pictures hanging on the wall. Notice the clam shell in the back ground? Those suckers are pricy!
( Adam Hunter)

Love how the shelves were painted a soft blue to high-light the shells.
(House beautiful)

(Oscar De La Renta)
 Love, everything about this design. The blue pottery, books and the gorgeous red coral. We know it looks like twigs painted, but it is really coral!

Meg Braff 

Meg Braff , brilliantly added the coral in the back bookcases. Bringing a little blue to tie it in through out. Notice how she thought of every detail. She added red piping to the upholstered chairs to tie in the bamboo red chairs. Julie could move right into this house.

In a vintage style setting the coral also looks great.
(Inspirational girl)

Mark Sikes, OK, just shoot us! Another Love!

This design with the coral being the center focal point is drop dead gorgeous! It creates a texture that adds to the white on white decor. Does anyone know who designed this? We love it!

Rooms and Garden store in L.A. Notice the price? $295.00 if anyone is interested in buying it.

Coral can be used in any style of decor. It is an organic element that seems to flow with any design. Do you like coral in your home?
