Be Inspired No. 64 - Branch Out

Branch out, literally. Be inspired to bring an organic touch to your home in so many beautiful ways. Both the simplicity and intrigue of the artfulness in which branches twist and turn is fascinating. To be able to appreciate this sculpture in your design project is to be inspired.

Cleverly referred to as a "branchalier", considering this unique light fixture in lieu of a more traditional design could be just the piece that finishes the room design.

Branching out can be adventurously rewarding. But as with all good things, too much of a good thing is just too much. Be selective, find that one branch-inspired piece that speaks to you and let it stand on its own. Control the urge to do more - otherwise you just end up with a forest!

So whether you branch out trunk and all, from the ceiling, as art on the wall, in a vase, at the window, as a banister or as the bed, be inspired!

Branch out!

Well Dressed Home No. 46 - Canopies, Crowns, and Sweet Dreams

The canopy bed is so versatile for any design lifestyle. And contrary to popular belief, it doesn't require a massive room to pull one off. The treatment, or lack of, can either create a wonderful cocoon or a glorious architectural element.  Either way, sweet dreams are practically guaranteed in a canopy bed!

With a creative eye a canopy treatment can be created many ways, as simplistic or as lavishly romantic as you desire. 

Mixing iron and upholstery or a wood canopy with a sheer fabric offer a statement piece of individuality that can take a ordinary bedroom to a dream bedroom.

Once you realize that, after all you can have a canopy bed in your space, the hard part begins. Because there are so many lovely ways to add this to your sanctuary of a room.

You might even start with your existing bed and turn it in to a canopy. Beware you will probably find yourself applying this technique of enhancement in other areas of the bedroom. Like switching out that boring mirror that matches your dresser for a prettier, more interesting one. 

Be inspired to create the haven for sweet dreams you deserve. You've ignored this pampering long enough!

Let operation bedroom transformation begin!
