Home Decor for a Recent Client



This beautiful home has now had a facelift.
Shelley decided to go with a wood look of ceramic tile in her formal dining room for her large family. I wanted to create a warm cozy setting that would draw you into the room, keeping the old world charm Shelley loved. Shopping with my client, we pulled together the small couch, picture, lamp, rug and accessories. It is important to have input of the home owner to ensure a loved room.















The wall colors are a rich red and a creamy buttery golden yellow. The flooring is a deep brown.
Over the table is a gorgeous chandelier Shelley found online along with a matching hanging fixture in her entry.

The Season To Decorate

I love the cool Fall mornings now and the early evenings when the sun is going down. A small pause in my day with a good cup of coffee with my husband always helps my body and soul to recharge and reflect on days gone by and dreams of tomorrow.

I love the Fall colors and my most favorite season of all that this time of year promises is just around the corner.

Decorating for the Senses is at the present helping with an open house showcasing a recent room makeover. The celebrations of the season will usher in my client's guest.

Next week, we will unveil the makings of an upscale corporate decor and catering event in a Clear Lake Nasa contractor company. We will look forward to sharing pics of these special events.

We encourage you to plan your next event with our services or let us bring a fresh look to your home for the holiday seasons. Reserve your place on our calendar now. We look forward to serving you.

Eclectic

This was the home I entitled "Eclectic" because we used a mix of components.  Here is a little peak of one the venues we styled. ...
