Crazy for Coral!

I am loving all the coral I am seeing these days!  Whether it's a whole collection gathered over a lifetime, or a touch of it here and there, it's a wonderful addition to any room!

And the colors!  Red, white, blue and pink are just a few that I have seen and it's charming in all forms - textiles, lights, mirrors, art - the sky is the limit!


Oscar de la Renta's home

Isn't this blue collection gorgeous?

Stunning!  Diamond Baratta at its best!

Mary and James Carville's foyer in AD
Love the light sconces!

This Palm Beach living room is exquisite!

This Italian villa has 25,000 pieces of hand made coral installed in its walls and ceiling!

This Jamaican villa by Charles Faudree is stunning - see
more in Veranda magazine!

Beautiful vignette with a touch of coral!

Isn't this a stunning bath for Mrs. Galen Weston's Florida home -
the red and pink is delicious!

Slipcover Sass

What a wonderful way to freshen your furniture and your interiors.......with slipcovers.  You know the old saying, "A change is as good as a rest"!  It's true! 

Nothing perks me up more than a change in our interiors......I stick with the basics, but continually change the look of our rooms with fabulous fabrics.

The change can be seasonal, for a special event or just to give your eyes something new to other words, a rest!  Right now, I am in the process of making new slips for two living room armchairs and six dining chairs...........the effect will give both rooms a fresh outcome!

Look at some of these ideas and let your mind wander about the possibilities.  And remember, slipcovers aren't just for chairs and sofas as you can see below........headboards, footboards, lamp shades, tables and yes, dog beds, can benefit too!

Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

Note how Katrin Cargill accentuated the gilded carving at the top of the chair with ruffles.  As for the cushion on the chair, she dressed up a solid color pillow by adding a colorful sleeve tied with velvet ribbon!
