Seven on Sunday

Happy Easter to all of my fellow Easter celebrating friends and readers. To  my Jewish friends and readers, hope you enjoyed a wonderful Passover. Beautiful day here, with a high getting to a whopping 76 degrees, practically summer!  I want to announce the winner of the chinoiserie tole tray. Congrats goes to-

#132 NORTH SHORE MIMI

Please email info@enchantedhome.com to provide your shipping address and color choice so this tray can be on it’s way!

Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed day with your family and. loved ones. My parents are in town so it’s going to be a day of family and togetherness (less two sons who are at Coachella, they CLAIM they did not realize it was Easter when they booked the trip…uh huh:)  Here we go with my Seven on Sunday-

1 FABRICS AND TRIMS…OH MY! I so love playing with fabrics and a current job that has been ongoing is starting to get the finishing touches.

This job is one I have been working on for the last several months and it is shaping up so beautifully. I shared some pics here (the NJ project) and will surely show a final reveal when the room is totally done. The final element will be the fabulous Ralph Lauren rug being made (to be delivered in May. We just firmed up all the pillows to be made, here is the rug-

The beautiful rug from Ralph Lauren is being made for them and due here within the month and feast your eyes on all the fabulous trims-

 

2 FOLLOWUP REPORTS ON A FEW THINGS I recommend things that I like and share my ideas often. Sometimes its fun to follow up when I really really like something. So here are a few recent “reviews”

Get these shoes! Love them, they are so comfortable now have them in two colors. Very chic, super comfy and a great everyday espadrille. Click here for info

These also are too cute, love the color and great scalloped shape plus the color screams ‘warm weather dressing,  here I come”! Click here for info

And finally have been using Glopro for about 10 days,  using it 3 times a week. I just recently learned what microstiumlation/mircroneedling is…and it makes perfect sense to now be able to do it at home, as traditionally this was done in a dermatologists office. It’s easy peasy but I swear its not my imagination, I think my skin is looking better and better.

I have good skin but as this sheds that first sloughy layer off of skin, so allows the skin to breath and open up the pores.  My favorite moisturizer, La Prairie really penetrates the skin. I will say this was well worth the investment and I am going to continue to do this 2-3 times a week as recommended.

I bought mine at Nordstrom as they stand behind their products no questions asked, just in case I didn’t like it. So far though, it is an absolute keeper and I think the buzz Glopro is getting is well deserved. For what a dermatologist charges, this thing pays for itself in one visit. Click here for info

Great article in the NY Times, “How to reduce wrinkles without lasers or chemicals” click here to read

 

3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. Very “Easter heavy” and why not, it only comes once a year with a healthy dose of spring and all around pretty thrown in!

 

4.GORGEOUS NEEDLEPOINT PILLOWS. I so love this exquisite line of very fine needlepoint/aubusson pillows. Got in a handful and will be offering them in a flash sale soon, to “test” the market before I commit to a large order. Thoughts welcome! Please participate in this short poll-

 


5. PRETTIEST SCONCES! I am excited to soon start carrying this most beautiful line and went with a client to the company headquarters to see them in person. So spectacular!! I have used them for years and often use them in jobs as well, made of the highest quality.

I am using a number of them for my PB home and have their more traditional ones in my current home. Here are some of what I saw….not one I don’t just love.

And this lamp I have used so many times and for good reason,  it is positively gorgeous-

6. MR TEDDY BUNNY. Always save the best for last, say hello to our resident Easter bunny…never seen one cuter! He wishes all of you a very happy happy Easter Sunday but demanded these darn ears get taken off right after his pic was taken, he said they made him look like a donkey. What can I say, he is one smart dog:)

 

7. SUNDAY’S SURVEY. So today, this is about summer and your plans or lack of plans: Never have I appreciated and enjoyed the blessing of no agenda as I do now that am working full time.

For me summer signifies the loosening up of a strict regimented non stop schedule. Its time to sit back and indulge in cocktails (sometimes before 5), lobster rolls and beach days. Of course mixed in with work as life doesn’t stop but taking more time to chill. Summer almost feels like a “temporary free pass” to take extra time off and relax a bit more than we might other seasons. How about you? What does summer mean to you?


And that my friends is a wrap. Hope you enjoyed this post. Wishing everyone a Happy Easter and a happy Sunday.

Always love to hear from you and happy you make me a part of your Sunday every weekend morning. Until next time…….

The latest on my design projects….

Hello and happy Tuesday! This post has been a long time in the making. Every now and then I do a post on edesign and/or design in general as a lot of people have questions about how edesign works and are both curious and intrigued by how this operates. I have done extensive posts on edesign here, here and here. Nearly many if not all your questions can be answered in going through these past posts, as they cover just about everything related to his increasingly popular design alternative.

Today is a recap on some very exciting and some “still on going” projects that I am particularly thrilled with. A little background on each project so you know what the objectives were. This is a long post with a lot to read and see…so grab an extra cup of coffee:)

UTAH. This client is a repeat client and a dream to work with, it helps that she has great taste and loves blue and white! They bought a very impressive home/horse farm that they knew they were going to give an overhaul to almost right away and recognized it was  in sore need of some TLC.

They did do some construction right off the bat but a lot of the project involved redecorating. After we worked on the kitchen, breakfast area, foyer and upstairs master/study, the master bath was next on the list! The master bath before I think we can all agree, was pretty dismal.

She wanted a light and airy, spa like luxurious master bath and boy, is that what she got! So first a look at the “before” and then get ready for the after

BEFORE

AFTER (still was waiting on new chair and window treatments)-

TEXAS. Another dream client, whom I have worked with before. An absolute delight!  This person wanted to reinvent furniture she already owned (that her kids deemed out of date and old fashioned) and give this living room new life, with a few updated accessories to bring it up to date.

So we chose a gorgeous soft cream velvet for the sofa, redid the two pairs of chairs in a fabulous toile and a beautiful pale blue/cream leopard on the smaller chairs. Replaced the coffee table, had new drapes made, added lamps, brackets and some blue and white…..final touch was the rug and it was a beautiful transformation indeed. Just love this space.

BEFORE-

AFTER-

The old floral heavy chairs were reupholstered in a beautiful soft toile linen and the heavy blue drapes replaced with ivory panels with a classic Greek Key trim, really lightened things up!

The cream velvet sofa looks fabulous accented with beautiful blue pillows and a gorgeous antique mirrored coffee table from Decor Market, which I just LOVE!

Theses antique chairs were given new life with a pale blue leopard  from Kravet

Blue and white lamps, a new rug, brackets with vases…voila!

NEW YORK. This is an “in progress” project and a very exciting one. We have a ways to go. Love that my client and and I are completely on the same page, she is such a pleasure to deal with. So she had made a mistake and bought an expensive secitonal that let’s say did not come out quite as she had hoped. Since it was basically brand new,  she could not justify getting rid of it. So she had it split into two sofas and we began our work!

Fabric redo to the rescue. We chose a gorgeous light tan tweedy fabric and redid the sofas. What an astounding difference!

We changed the floorplan to create two separate sitting areas, one facing the TV and the other the fireplace. Chairs have been ordered along with cocktail tables. We are working on pillows now and added a beautiful side table/console for between the back to back sofas, and added a pair of my signature blue and white jars. Looking so much better already!! Here is the new floorplan-

BEFORE-

These are the sofas before-

AFTER (we are now starting to work on pillows)-

Next project, reupholstering these pretty chairs from Decor Market-

Some contenders and this is how we play with fabrics looking at them on a board with other elements of the room as well as the floorplan we decided on-

NEW JERSEY. Another really fun project with a wonderful couple who own a magnificent very old and stately Dutch Colonial that endured a major floor. Over a year was spent restoring the home and nearly everything was lost.

A few pieces of furniture remained but they were outdated and they felt this was a great chance to start anew. The husband, a talented artist and sculptor wanted a showplace to display his beautiful works, so this is going to be a wonderful juxtaposition of modern with classic traditional.This was a concept board from early on which shows the magnificent rug from Ralph Lauren that is on order and due in April-

 

A stunning Ralph Lauren rug is on order and due in April. The color scheme is tans, gold and blues. It is going to be so spectacular…when you have a room like this almost anything looks good.

BEFORE-

DURING-

We have accessorizing to do in the dining room but added these beautiful cream silk drapes with the most beautiful trim

And in the kitchen which lacked color/pattern we added this stunning window treatment (fabric from Schumacher) and are now going to do the same in the breakfast area

She also had a beautiful window seat off the foyer where there is a small sitting area with a piano she had a vision of using greens and pinks, so first I did a mock up on a board then it became a reality!

AFTER- (waiting on one more pillow)

There is a very small powder room off the library which has a window open to the front, they needed privacy but still wanted light filtering through as this a very small and dark room, we did a beautiful tonal semi sheer relaxed balloon.

There is a dark gold pin stripe that matches the wallpaper (a dark gold damask) beautifully, the pictures a bit dark but you get the idea!

I plugged in a few accessories and concepts as we approach the next step…just to give some ideas-

As we now being to accessorize the room while we wait for the rug and other pieces to come in, I showed  options of a center table with benches tucked in or a long wide bench

PERKS OF EDESIGN. One of the neat things about edesign is with the 24/7 access, there are no time restraints and there are so many great resources to utilize that make easier than one might think. I love being able to show clients things on a board, and can even “plug” things in to show them what they might look like. Something you cannot do in person!

As an example this is a current project which I will share in the future as we are at the beginning stages,  she has a dining room that needs some tweaking. I suggested moving the art to the side walls and adding a mirror above her sideboard. I was able to add these virtually as a concept-

BEFORE-

CONCEPT AFTER-

On another wall the plate arrangement felt too high so I was able to show her adding two more plates will change the effect plus I suggested adding chandelier shades for a soft, Frenchy feel…

BEFORE-

CONCEPT AFTER-

So yes you could say I have been a busy lady and now you can see why I cherish those “lazy Sundays” so much, but this was the perfect retort to my empty nest syndrome!

I so love what I do and getting to help transform other peoples home is so fulfilling. Nothing makes me happier than to hear how excited they are about getting to enjoy their homes in a whole new way. So thank you to all of my wonderful clients, with whom this adventure would not be possible.

I am working on two new projects that I am really enjoying, and cannot wait to share those with you when the time comes…it really is such a fulfilling process to be able to help transform someones home. Because as I have always said and truly believe, the ultimate luxury is having a beautiful home to come home to at the end of the day.

Thanks to my readers for stopping by, wishing you a wonderful day and and good start to your week. Until next time…….

Which would you choose?

Hello and happy Monday afternoon! Hope you had a great weekend, it was a beautiful weather weekend though we had a mini heatwave but by the beach with the ocean breezes,  it was perfect. It was almost hard to come home but all good things come to an end.

We all know the name Ralph Lauren is synonymous with great taste and high quality…..what an iconic brand he has built!  I own many things under his label from various housewares to sheets to clothing….and I can say his commitment to quality shows in every single one.  I enjoy many things from his line but always try to hold out for sales to stock up. I am a big fan of his towels and bedding and with the homesale/white sale happening now….it’s a great time to stock up and refresh.

Plus I found other great finds like a darling polo for your favorite four legged friend for $15 and my all time favorite sconces are at a price that I have never seen and I can attest that I have never seen a prettier sconce, they are just beyond gorgeous. So many good things, it made a fun Which would you choose. So now the question and your turn…..which two would you most love to have?

About those dining room drapes……

Hello everyone and happy Friday. First,  I want to announce the winner of the Tory Burch flip flops, congratulations goes to-

#93 JUDE

Please contact me at theenchantedhome@gmail. com to claim your prize and tell me your size

_________

I am so excited to show you my BEAUTIFUL dining room drapes. They are exactly as I had dreamed they would be. I wanted a simple elegant panel that resembles a silk ballroom skirt with a beautiful trim to pick up the soft blue in the rug. I chose a gorgeous silk dupioni from Beacon Hill fabrics in the color, Snow and had long ago fallen in love with my beautiful trim from the incomparable Samuel and Sons…..no one makes trims like they do!

Once I had my stunning handpainted paper murals from Paul Montgomery installed, I  knew that the drapes were the only thing missing. So it definitely motivated me to make it a priority which I finally did:)

I also ordered gorgeous gold leaf pole and finials from a company that will be carried on my new site….they make the beautiful solid wood drapery hardware, very elegant. So though it took a while for me to get this together, it finally happened. I waited anxiously for the drapes to come back from my local workroom that I have worked with for years….and day of installation watching it all come togehter, made me question why I had waited so long!!

These pictures will speak for themselves….(used my Nikon for these pics, the occasion called for it:)

Yes the silk color and fabulous trim were spot on….phew! I am a fan of about a 3″ puddle on the floors, nothing worse than drapes that are too short!

I could not be any  happier with how they came out…it is exactly as I had envisioned and hoped. They are light and airy, yet formal and elegant without being too stuffy or over the top. I did not do “rings” because I did not need them to move and felt it would take away from the elegant simplicity. It is just “enough” but still allows my gorgeous chinoiserie murals to be the main star!

Thank for stopping by to take a look. Hope you have a wonderful day, and end to your week. Until next time…..

Project Lower Level- part 2!

Good Monday evening and how is your week going? Mine is off to a very busy start but trucking along…. today felt like spring and it was incredible to walk out with just a light jacket. Could it be? I am almost afraid to wish for it as with my luck, a new snow storm will be lurking! About 6 months ago I shared with you, our lower level or at least a part of it, click here if you missed part 1. Today I am sharing the rest (or most of it).

Our basement aka lower level is quite large. In fact I could happily live down there now that we are basically empty nesters (so sad). It came out really beautiful, it’s a more casual area but so comfortable. The tall ceilings (10 feet) do not at all make it feel like a basement and we have many windows so truly its almost feels like a main floor. So join me as I show you around…..

10136-CalligraphicDesignElementsSet1_2-1024x215-300x6311212-1-1

 

When you first get downstairs there is a “foyer/hallway” area where we put a beautiful French antique armoire that we have had for quite some time, didn’t know where else to put it so here it is for now at least….

Then there is a pretty powder room (Thibaut paper) still waiting on new mirror but this is here as a temporary “fill in”-

DSC_0483 DSC_0482

There is a small vestibule that separates the area above to the gym (to the left there is an unfinished room designated as a future wine room) This fixture below is way too dressy I know,? but we have it from our old house so just using it for now…..

DSC_0532

Then the next room is a gym, thankfully my husband? and college aged son (when home) use it a lot. I wish I could say I do but I am getting there, after hurting my knee quite badly (partially torn ACL)? over a year ago, I am gun shy about doing hardcore exercise again but one of my big resolutions is to get back to exercising.

It’s a really fabulous room in the way that gyms go, beautiful carpeting that is soft on the feet, not one but two TV’s (husbands idea) professional gym equipment, every comfort one could want and mirrors on every wall to remind you why you need to be there in the first place lol….

DSC_0490

DSC_0489 DSC_0488

DSC_0538 DSC_0537 DSC_0536 DSC_0487 DSC_0486

From the gym room there is a small vestibule with a cabinet (eventually for towels) and then there is a gym bath (not finished)-

DSC_0491

This is the still unfinished gym bath, there is a toilet and the shower is done but we received a damaged vanity and still waiting for replacement, which is taking forever.? Do love the floor from Tilebar:)

DSC_0492

Not much to see right now other than the pretty floor:)

DSC_0493 DSC_0494 DSC_0495

Moving along down the hallway……this is possibly our favorite room in the entire? house, my husabnd uses it every single night and I often join him (if I like what is “playing”). The screen is enormous and the sound is just like that of a theater…this sofa is the most comfortable sofa I have ever sat on (thank you Lee Industries) for making it.

Its a soft cozy chenille and is perfect for movie watching! The coffee table is actually two coffee tables pushed together from Ralph Lauren, its a more transitional look but super classic. We painted the walls a rick dark navy (Ralph Lauren)? which I love.

Only thing temporary here are these sconces, these are too nautical for the room but we had them from our old house so put them up for now, working on getting the replacements ordered. Still loving for movie inspired art as you can see, we have a few not yet hung and eventually add some other pillows.

The carpet is a rich navy with gold dots from Stanton. All the furniture pieces are from Ralph Lauren.

DSC_0512 DSC_0513

10136-CalligraphicDesignElementsSet1_2-1024x215-300x6311212-1-1

Believe it or not there is more- another bedroom and bath, a huge “playroom” and a ping pong/billiard table room beyond these rooms that are finished but there is virtually nothing in them but a sectional and a ping pong table. Our visions of our kids playing there sadly are a bygone era and wishful thinking at this point…..but the space is there maybe for future grandchildren?

In the meantime we really enjoy this lower level especially the movie room, as it is so cozy, warm and inviting. So there you have it….the lower level completed (with the exception of odds and ends). Thank you for stopping in, wishing you a wonderful evening and great start to your week. Until next time…..

Blue and white in the outdoors….oh yes!

Hi really hope this posts today, Tuesday (as it was scheduled ahead of time) Feels like a long time since I have done a post on blue and white, and every time I do it feels like the first time….still love it as much as the first day I laid eyes on a blue and white ginger jar:)

So today, a bevy of blue and white beauty and how it can be used outdoors? for your viewing pleasure…..summer is the perfect season to show you just how fabulous blue and white is outside as much as it is in! What do you think? Allow me to demonstrate…..

I have someone looking at it to be sure its in working order:)? I am also still figuring out/adding on blogs to my beloved blogroll (there’s a big learning curve here in case you haven’t guessed:) Thanks for your patience……
