It's definitely summer here in Nashville, Tennessee and I've been soaking up the first harvests of homegrown tomatoes and corn-on-the-cob from The Farmer's Market—and good ole air conditioning!
If you're like me and staying indoors a little more often this month, you may be looking around your home thinking about what you'd like to do differently with your decor.
Here are a few quick and easy design tips from my portfolio of most often asked questions and a special offer!
Before hanging an artwork grouping – lay out all the pieces on the floor.
We recommend aligning either the top or the bottom of your pictures to create an outstanding display. If you live in a two story home, an ideal space to hang cherished family photos is following the stair step incline.
Not sure you want to paint your ceilings white again?
Try this: take your wall color – let’s say Elemental Tan from Sherwin Williams – and mix 1 –
2 cups to 1 gallon of ceiling white. The eye will flow beautifully from the walls to the ceiling particularly if separated by a true white crown molding.

Today, toile (pronounced “twal”) fabrics go with everything. Originating in France, these timeless farm-inspired scenes are most easily recognized for their monochromatic color scheme printed on a natural linen ground. Perhaps you are most familiar with the wedgewood blue scene on an ivory linen. To get even more pizzaz, the latest trend from Europe is to weave bolder and brighter colors on the neutral background. Get a fabulous result integrating toile designs on furniture, pillows, lamp shades, wallcoverings and also for a knock out twist - block and frame toile designs as wall tapestries.
Have you found that “floating” your family room furniture isn’t working for you and your family’s lifestyle?
There is a good reason - you can easily lose 15-20% of your valuable floor space when you push your furniture out from the walls into the center of your room. Sure, it looked good in the magazine or on TV – but the latest trend is to open up your rooms and regain that much needed space.
