Help! My water has turned blue, no purple, no red! Oh, no wait, that’s the Hansa faucet! With it’s electronically controlled sensors the water can go from cool blue to warm red according to the temperature. Hope that doesn’t baffle the plumber!
Loving this new line of wallpapers from Anna French, a collection called “Glamour.” They are a mix of metallic foils, micas, and flocks. Also loving the room inspirations the collections are featured in! (Fortunately, they are available at US showrooms, too. See website for listings.)
Looking for more traditional furniture? Try Source Perrier.
I am currently working on a residential project that requires a more traditional furniture style. To incorporate the client’s existing furniture along with new furniture, the furnishings below offer some of the transitional elements but still keeping within the traditional lines the client prefers.
It takes some browsing through the website, but there are some good finds!
ANTONIONI DRUM TABLE: this will make a great side table next to a chair.
It’s always so much fun to see the versions of “High” and “Low.” Often, they will be from two different manufactures. For example, in reference to the post Lauren had done awhile back: “Would you fake it?” which featured a high end rug from Madeline Weinrib or Ikea & Pottery Barn’s knock off version of the same rug. Well, with Shabby Chic you have both high and low from the same company! There is the high end line at Shabby Chic stores or the retail line at Target called “Simply Shabby Chic” which we all know would account for low-er priced. Check out some of these finds:
SHABBY CHIC: BAROQUE MIRROR $255
Once a year, a team of interior designers are selected to each design a participating room at the Historic Greystone Estate in Beverly Hills. After much anticipation, “The Great House” opens it’s doors each November for a short period of time where ticket holders can view the rooms & attend lectures. All proceeds of the event benefit Greystone Estate.
If you live in the LA area or plan to visit within the next two weeks, you can access ticket info on the website: Beverly Hills Garden Showcase.
Unfortunately, they haven’t published any pictures of this year’s rooms for me to post. However, there has been a great deal of media coverage and I am sure pictures will be circulating eventually for those of you who are not in the LA area. I, myself, will be at the Estate for an event next week – I’ll see what info I can relay back!
