 It's always amazing to watch as our vendors fill the marketplace with LOVELY finds that beautifully compliment the trends of each season.  We are loving this chevron dress in navy & cream. Check it out in our new clothing vignette, Pieces!   And, if your are wanting to add a pop of color to your outfit... bedazzle yourself with a sweet kiss + gold necklace.

Be on the lookout for your favorite GEOMETRIC PRINTS in the New Year! We have already begun to see such colorful textiles headed into the marketplace. If you want to add a twist to your traditional Southern style, consider pairing a hounds tooth upholstered chair with a vibrant geometric!

The original artwork arriving at the marketplace continues to inspire us! Each of our artists are uniquely gifted in their ability to use color, texture, & various mediums! They never fail to bring life to any blank canvas... in this piece, the rich hues of navy & plum brings personality to the trees.

With the New Year headed this way, be open to fresh ideas, a new look & updates that will make you fall in love with your home all over again! Your interior style can be both bold & beautiful.... but, most importantly let it be a space that you & your family can enjoy.

With December coming to an end, it seems 2013 is right around the corner... but, you shouldn't just enjoy your home when you have family coming for a visit...  let your STYLE SHINE ALL YEAR!
It's been exciting to catch a glimpse into some of the NEW COLORS & TRENDS that will come along with a new season & a new year.  Here is a sneak peak of a few colors to expect in 2013!

These icy jewel tones certainly create an elegant & chic look. How lovely is the overscale greek key patterned rug in rose pink + pearl? It might just be the special touch your living room needs. It is possible to add color even if you prefer lighter palette!

Once in awhile we find something that pops up at the marketplace that we can't seem to take our eyes off of! For the last week, a few of us (mostly me) have been obsessing over this pair of geometric cut velvet pillows! Aren't they FABULOUS? If you are a lover of all of things coral + icy teal... these may need to find their way into your home! And, a unique pair like these can update your look in an instant...

And, so the story goes on... interior & fashion trends crossing over! We love seeing the GEOMETRIC patterns on pillows flowing over onto the prints on dresses. If you want to add a special touch to your outfit... pair a geo patterned dress with a STONE necklace in indigo or violet!

With each detail you add to your home it should become more of a reflection of who you are & what your personal taste it! So, explore your style & add things that "SHINE" your true character. If you have young kids & want to add some funky color with artwork, consider large abstract floral prints! If you love to entertain your friends... why not spice up your dining room with a shimmery wallpaper?

We hope all of you had a wonderful holiday with your family & loved ones... we look forward to seeing you soon or in the New Year!
