Textured Walls Are All The Rage


So I’m in love with wall covering again.

It’s such an easy way to add warmth and drama to your home.  

And the added bonus is that its nothing like your mothers wallpaper. Advancements in technology have come a long way, so now it's easy to remove if you change your mind - or change your style.  That means there is no reason not to express yourself in even more creative ways with what's on your walls.

I really enjoy mixing finishes and materials and wall covering makes it easy to do just that! Consider a textured grass cloth next to a polished chrome table, toss in a worn leather sofa and a hair on hide rug for a perfect, cozy, man cave.

For more of a statement, try a bold pattern to create a stylish focal point.

Another option (now don't be afraid!) is to use wall covering in more unusual ways. I like to cover an old piece of furniture for an updated look and an added little touch of personality. I have even used wall covering to cover ceilings in a powder room to make an intimate feel while adding a ton of drama. After all, people are only in there for a short time; why not make it a true experience for your guests?

Easy Ways to Add Personal Style to Your Home


Educated, savvy buyers are now looking for unique elements to reflect their own personal style.

Your home should be as personal to you as your wardrobe.

And it should be a reflection of your style and your way of life.

The days of purchasing your bedroom suite right off the furniture store floor are over.  Many manufacturers are offering options that allow an individual to make choices and to step away from the cookie cutter mentality. A good way to do this is to consider pairing a different size chest as a creative solution for night stands.

Looking to make a big change but the budget won’t allow?

Even small steps can make a big difference in staking personality claim on your domain. Take risks with items such as hardware and don’t be afraid to blend different eras to make a statement.

Switching hardware on your existing pieces is not only easy but very cost effective for an instant look. This simple design idea can reflect your own personal style and bring a new life to your kitchen, bath and even custom closet.
