Fun Window Seat Idea

We love this idea for a window seat.  The space spans an entire wall and highlights three windows.  The homeowner wanted a cozy place to sit, while allowing light to infiltrate without losing privacy.  She chose three equally sized window seat cushions to lend symmetry, then she used simple tension rods with a sweet embroidered set of sheer curtains for each window.  The effect is lovely.

Master Bedroom Curtains :: Before/After

Our clients requested that we find a different solution for window coverage in their bedroom. They wanted to keep the look of curtains (with blackout lining), but they needed a few other things in the new design:  a more beautiful fabric (!), a more substantial rod which would be mounted above the glass, and a system which would make opening/closing easier.

Clever Candeholder

 I was invited over to a good friend's home last week and took particular notice of a clever and unique candleholder.  At their previous house, the family had been forced to cut down a favorite tree.  They salvaged a few slices and created a beautiful grouping of wooden objects, one with a few holes drilled to hold tea handles.  My friend treated the wood with a coating to protect it.  Isn't it awesome?
