The longer I am in this business, the more convinced I become that there is always a place for “pretty” in this world. Your style may be modern or rustic or traditional, but the classic lines of a piece of furniture which is “pretty” just never goes out of style.
For example, this classic dresser we just received. The lines are so elegant. Purchasing a piece such is this will be an investment for years to come.
The chest has a marble top in a warm beige tone.
The body is made of poplar and is painted in a soft cream color.
The dimensions are: approx. 44”wx21”dx35”h. The price is $1208.
We would love to see you stop by and explore the piece yourself!
It has been an amazing and crazy past 5 days, so I am a little late with the post today. I just finished filming a TV episode for a national cable channel and believe me when I tell you it was intense. Those 5 days were really long (like 3:30am long)!
It was an absolute blast and a great time. I signed a confidentiality agreement, so can’t share the details just yet, but once I am able to, I will tell you all about it!
So, I am told it is Wednesday, even though I’ve totally lost track of the days and time. Today, I wanted to share with you our latest shipment of Nouvelle candles.
We ordered a large assortment, sizes and fragrances, of our favorite Nouvelle candles (made in Louisiana). The “best sellers” are the Crepe Myrtle and Tuscan Currant, but there are many other great scents.
The containers the candles come in are truly lovely and there is a good assortment of exterior colors to choose from.
The “petite” urns begin at only $14 and the largest size is $39. These will make great hostess, teacher and birthday gifts! Come in and find out which fragrance is your favorite!
I am so excited! My Joss & Main “Curated Collection” is now live and the feedback has been fabulous!
The team at Joss & Main made a fabulous “Look Book” compilation of my projects. It is a really neat experience to have someone else look at your work and then write their interpretation of the characteristics which make your style unique!
Here are just a few of the fun products available through this tag sale:
The sale ends by Thursday, so be quick! Remember, you need to establish a log in account. Click this link to obtain one:
I hope you enjoy the products I selected!
I love lamps. I think they are the jewelry for your home. They bring such style to a space. I am particularly fond of ceramic lamps, especially gourd lamps. I really like Christopher Spitzmiller lamps, but a $2,000 lamp just isn’t in my near future.
Luckily, a couple of companies have recently jumped in to fill the gap between the $200 and the $2000 ceramic lamp! We are excited to just have received our first shipment.
When ordering these lamps, you can choose the type of base (acrylic, wood and gold leaf), the shape of the base (gourd, ginger jar, cylinder), the color of the base, the type of shade (drum, flare), the material of the shade (linen or parchment), and, if you choose a parchment shade, even the color of the interior of the shade! We chose sky blue on one lamp- so fun!
Here are our selections:
White gourd lamp with acrylic base
A tall lamp, with wood base and parchment shade. Inside of the shade is the palest sky blue- see if you can tell from the second photo…
I also really liked the style of this lamp:
We have a pair of these on our Barclay Butera sideboard and the styles look great together!
The lamps run around $400 and they look it. The finish details are beautiful!
You’ve probably figured out by now I’m not a huge color person! Hence, all the white lamps and neutral shades. However, if you really want to add some pop to your home, we would be more than happy to custom order some lamps for you from this color ceramic program. Here are just a few examples of how creative you can get!
So go ahead, be brave and creative. We’d love to help you design your personalized color ceramic lamp! Just stop in or email us at email@example.com to learn more.
We have a lot of fun and exciting things going on this month at Heather Scott Home & Design. Saturday was our Lilly Pulitzer event and it was a blast. When the party was over we all stood around and marveled at what a good time we had listening and learning from our Lee Jofa rep, Oscar. Thanks, Oscar, for coming and teaching us so much!
Here is a photo showing some of the large fabric samples he brought to share:
We enjoyed catching up with Austin/LA designer James Saavedra and cohort, Lily. Both were at our holiday party in December and it was fun to see them again.
Judy, from the local Lilly Pulitzer clothing store, joined in the fun and brought clothes from their most recent collection.
Some of our favorite girls in their Lilly outfits!
Suffice it to say, it was a fun time and we can’t wait to do another in store event!
While it will be awhile until our next store event, I am excited to share with you my first ‘online’ event. I was asked by the company Joss & Main to “Curate a Collection” of their products around my design style. The collection will be available for purchase beginning on Sunday, May 20th!
Don’t they have the best logo? I love the purple peacock! You can find their online shop here:
Joss & Main is a company that offers limited time sales events on some of the best home décor products out there. There is no fee to join, but you do have to become a member to participate. If you would like to join, click this link:
I hope you will take the time on Sunday, May 20th to see the collection I have put together for their online sale! More details to come…and until then, happy designing and decorating to each of you!
In this home, the young daughter’s bathroom also happens to be the guest bathroom, so while we wanted a youthful look, we were also targeting something that adults could feel comfortable using.
The home is very traditional and the finishes used are all classic elements which should stay in style for years to come. The bath was a minor remodel (nothing structural was moved), we just looked at updating the materials.
The bulkhead light fixture was removed, along with the builder mirror and cultured marble countertop. All the cabinets remained. The carpet came out, as did all the tilework in the shower area.
This was our color palette:
Soft green/blue with classic white subway tile and an accent tile made of marble and glass.
I found a Carrara marble remnant, with a beautiful edge detail, for a great price, which allowed us to splurge a bit on a custom shower curtain.
Now the family has a fresh, clean and crisp bath with custom details which will be in style for years to come. I don’t know about you, but it makes me want to go tackle my guest bathroom!
We are so excited this week to be hosting a Lilly Pulitzer themed event at the store on Saturday, May 12th between 1pm and 3pm. If you are familiar with the brand you know it is all about having fun and bringing joy through vibrant colors and a relaxed lifestyle! This is going to be the theme of our event, relaxed and colorful!
We are going to have a representative from Kravet/Lee Jofa fabrics talk about the brand history and share the fabrics, Scott is going to show you some of the upholstered furniture and case goods, and the local Lilly Pulitzer clothing store will be on hand to showcase some of the latest fashions.
We will have gift bags for those who come as well as light snacks. It will be a great ‘Mother/Daughter’ activity if you are looking for something to do this weekend. Lilly has some fabulous prints and furniture pieces for the tween or teen in your household!
We look forward to seeing you there. Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week!
In a custom home, bathrooms give a homeowner a great opportunity to express their creativity and style. I love looking at beautiful tile work and thought I would take today’s blog post as an opportunity to share some inspirational photos of bathroom tilework.
Some of the biggest challenges deal with coordinating different elements (flooring, backsplash, shower) as well as where to stop and start certain tiles (where corners meet, where to place the rail), so be sure to notice how each tile element is coordinated with the others.
So, what did you take away from the ten photos above? Hopefully, you decided that there really is no true ‘right or wrong’ when it comes to designing your hard surfaces. This is a great way to interject some fun, uniqueness and most of all mood setting color (if you read my last blog post) in a space that is completely yours! The beauty of these images is that prove that you can mix size, style and materials in a typically small space and still come out with an amazingly one-of-a-kind bathroom!
If you are struggling to pull together your bathroom design, we would love to help. Contact us at: email@example.com for more information about our design services.
We just received a new shipment of some of our favorite lamps:
These lamps are fantastic! They are solid wood, available stained dark brown or black. They have dimmer switches on the cords, which are a great feature. The burlap shades add a lot of character. The lamps run around $465 each. These always sell quickly, so don’t wait to long to come in and see them!
Also, a quick reminder about our Lilly Pulitzer in store event on May 12th from 1-3pm at the store. It should be great fun, and a good Mother’s day activity for mothers and daughters! We look forward to seeing you there. Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
