As most of you know by now, Pantone selected EMERALD as the 2013 color of the year!  And, we have been crushing on it a lot daily! This new found love for emerald, a color Dorothy knew so very well,  might have started when a particular pair of pillows made there way into the marketplace. Obviously, we are not the only folks lusting over the bold CHINOSERIE print!  This pair of pillows can add shine to your bedroom decor & on your sofa.

Speaking of lusting over home accessories... glass jars in various sizes have also become a new fave at the marketplace!  And, it just so happens they wear icy emerald very well! If you are looking to add some pizzazz to your home - add details that enhance design! A pop of emerald perhaps?

Trellis drapery panels paired with a seagrass wallcovering can create a atmosphere of coastal serenity. We love a layered look + a shade of emerald!

 It seems another chic lady, Tobi Fairley, is fond of the same color palette as Dorothy! Be inspired by the look Tobi created in a recent room design (featured above.) Voila! A glamorous statement comes to life by combing an elegant starburst mirror +  gourd lamps + emerald geometric prints.
So, the next time your in the marketplace... keep your eyes open to all the LOVELY SHADES OF EMERALD! And, don't hesitate to make a statement with this bold color... consider using it on a trellis wallcovering in your powder room! And, don't leave with out your very own COLOR CRUSH!  Maybe yours is a shade of EMERALD too...

We love seeing Pantone's 2013 SPRING GREENS making their way to the marketplace! This lovely trio can add the vibrant touch to your home's design. Could they be more FRESH + FABULOUS?

What type of mood are you wanting to create in your home?
  • Emerald: this lovely, radiant green brings sophistication and classiness
  • Grayed Jade: this subtle, hushed green with a gray undertone brings about a mood of quiet reflection
  • Tender Shoots: this vibrant, invigorating, active, and cheerful yellow-green is like the first sign of Spring

WE PERSONALLY LOVE THE COMBO OF TENDER SHOOTS + GRAYED JADE! Eastern Accents did an incredible job of featuring this color combo at the High Point Market!  Go with greens this Spring & give your home the fresh look it deserves!

Art is always a wonderful place to start when looking for inspiration! Not only does it bring life to your walls - but, it can be a FOCAL POINT that pulls your room's overall design together.  Love that the "tender shoots" green is popping out through the background of this abstract piece! Come see the incredible layering of colors in person at the marketplace. 

We are THRILLED that our vintage monogram collection by Karen Keffer Baucom continues to grow! The intricacy of each of her custom designs inspire us & we eagerly await to see more. If you are looking for the perfect details to add to your home - a unique monogram & a designer wallcovering is the perfect combo!

With our vendors fresh back from market - their vignettes spaces are being replenished daily!
If you haven't stopped by in 2013 - be sure to! Changes continue to emerge...  

And, we are very excited to welcome more NC artists to our family, to see our boutique clothing space, "Pieces" grow,  & to have a new custom upholstery line launching this month!
