Wall Art: What’s Your Style ?

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Have you ever felt the frustration of a blank wall staring at you and you’re at a loss how to decorate it ?  Me to!  Where oh where do you begin?   I’m staring at the blank wall in our living room with the same dilemma. 

I’ve shopped my house and pulled all sorts of different artwork, frames, and artifacts together.   Now, I am in the process of displaying it all in a cohesive way.  I’ve been gathering inspiration and carefully observing different styles.  Meanwhile, I thought I’d pose these questions to all of you: 

 

1)  Do you prefer a wall display that is balanced

through symmetry and/or repetition ?

Home Goodies at Burlington Coat Factory ?!

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

I’ve always known Burlington Coat Factory was a great place for cheap clothing for kids.  Today I found myself exploring the home goods department and was rather delighted to see this discount store had a few accessories and some furniture that were quite stylish, and inexpensive compared to their designer twins !

I spied these moroccan end tables for $50 at BCF, and found them a few places online like right here for $200 !

Do you love the Filigree Urn by Z Gallerie ?  I adore it, but it is almost $100 dollars.  A similar version at BCF is $30 bucks and also comes in blue, green and white.

That $12 dollar smaller one came home with me.  :-)
