Another Detail...

Another go-to detail that we can't forget is the ribbon or fabric wine glass detail.  The trick here is to avoid going all over-the-top crafty... (i.e. no paint pens!) Easy ties- not bows- look the best! strips of fabric are our favorites...

Peel and stick Panelling


A super cool new product is peel and stick wood panelling.  It was even featured in House Beautiful as one of the cool new products for 2014.  Stikwood is the name of the company and it's ingenious! Just "plan, peel and stick"--that's their motto.  Go to the website HERE for more info.

The Art of the Bar Tray

My friend Betsy and I took a quick trip to Homegoods yesterday.  "I don't need anything" is what she proclaimed on our way through the automatic doors.  But Alas, wandering through all of the great holiday barware, she decided it's time for a festive bar tray.  It started with a new brass martini shaker and a pair of great $2.99 "Cheers" glasses and voila!  An impromptu mini bar!

Love her house!

Here is some more bar tray inspiration...
