“A picture is worth a thousand words.” – Napoleon Bonaparte
I love the way handmade products bring warmth, visual interest and character into a space all while being healthy for our families and our planet earth.
Today I am featuring Hartmann&Forbes, a natural window coverings company that has great passion in what they create, and it truly shows in the quality and detail of their product. Their designs are innovative yet inspired by century old cultures using natural fibers that aresustainably grown and harvested. Yes, a picture is worth a thousand words, but the thought and care it takes to make award-winning products are more than a thousand. Be still my heart.
While searching for pretty storage boxes, (in the cabaret hue) I came across this round lacquered box from the container store, cute right? It would go nicely with a room scheme like that (gorgeous, beautiful, amazing and oh so glamorous) one from the May Fair Hotel in London. The hotel suite has beautiful velvet like wall-coverings in a vivid pink rose hue, ornate (rococo style) headboard trim in gold inset with luxurious black fabric (or leather) sumptuous bedding and linens, to die for bench, and black oriental style side tables, I’d say fit for a queen. I’m inspired! You? My luggage is packed and ready! ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
If you have any questions or would like to schedule a design consultation send me a note.
1. I am loving this year’s spring 2012 RTW collection by J. Mendel. Color blocked modern with its simplistic lines, but still elegant, chic and sexy. Varied in colors from bright yellows, blues to medium and light greens, to nudes and blacks and whites.
2. How fun is this tea-pot (Mayfair) in bright yellow with contrasting black and white stripes. It’s part of the “PS Stripe Collection” by Paul Smith. To find out more about his designs, please visit the website @ http://www.paulsmith.co.uk
