Previously on this blog I listed items 10-5 of my favorites for the home this winter. Let’s continue shall we?
4. Photo frames. Nothing makes a house feel like a home quicker than memories in pretty frames. Go by the rule of odds and hang them in groups of 5 to 7 or set them on tables 1 to 3 at a time. Pottery Barn’s collection is my top pick for silver (see the Miranda Spinning Frame, above, or their Abigail Frames in stores and online). Mix it up! Plain silver framed mixed with chunky painted frames only looks more collected over time.
3. Lanterns. Available everywhere you turn this winter from estate sales to outlet stores to your favorite home decor catalog. Fill the bottom with a bit of faux greenery and pinecones, mini glass ornaments or faux snow. Add a nice, tall pillar candle and you’ve created an instant touch of winter. May be used on nightstands, the front porch, the walkway or as a centerpiece on the buffet! Arches Lanterns by Pottery Barn, seen above. $19-$69
2. For a lot of us, bitter cold weather means spending a bit more time in bed; sleeping in, reading, catching up on “Grey’s Anatomy” episodes– the finer things in life! So why not splurge on the right pillow for you? Since everyone sleeps differently, the same pillow may not work for everyone in the family. Now is as good a time as any to create the bed of your dreams and help your neck out at the same time. I prefer Private Quarters’ luxury bedding and their pillows are worth every penny! Check out www.myprivatequarters.com to find a dealer near you. Skimp on the decor in the bedrooms if you have to but a comfortable bed can change your life!
and the #1 item for the home this winter is….
A shower head that “wow”s every time. So you may not need a cashmere throw or a plush velvet sofa to help you unwind after a long day. But everyone showers. And this is one product everyone can apprecite. Lavaca’s collection of Rain Shower Heads will cause just one problem- those holiday house guests may not be leaving on Monday after all. Check out http://www.interiorarcade.com/furniture/bathroom-furniture/lavacas-rain-shower-heads/ or talk to your bathroom remodeler for more info.
As a browsed my favorite blogs over the weekend looking for ideas for various projects I found a few that could be easily implemented by any decorator, whether they be amateur or professional! So read on and add some style to your space already!
