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

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…….

AS OF MONDAY MORNING- Brand new flash sale on the most exquisite line of brass/crystal lamps. You will not find  more beautiful lamps! Click here to view

Seven on Sunday

Good Sunday evening and Labor Day weekend to you. Boy I am squeezing this “Sunday on Seven” in just in the nick of time:)? I really missed being on my blog, we are enjoying a wonderful holiday weekend by the lake….so relaxing.

Thank you for bearing with me as my site was transferred to a new domain……yes I am officially a “.com” so the new address is www.enchantedhome.com FYI though there are no changes on your end. It is done and for anyone who emailed about the site being down, that is a thing of the past!

I am so very sorry but in the process about 30 comments were (about the last 30)? lost in my “sponsors post/giveaway”,? unfortunately that is just one of the perils of this process.

Because of that I am allowing this to go on one more day so you can leave another comment in case yours was lost. Click here to throw your name in the hat for the drawing (10 fabulous prizes)!? All winners will be announced on Tuesday.

We are away this weekend and hope this will post as it is supposed to. Anyway onto my Seven on Sunday…

1 FABULOUS BLUE AND WHITE PAPER GOODS. Yes these are paper….hard to believe! Leave it up to my readers to inform me of this fabulous line of papergoods at Target nonetheless. Upon further “investigating” I found that this company, Cheeky also has a wonderful social platform, one worth supporting so this definitely warranted including it in today’s roundup.

They will donate a meal for every single item purchased….what better way to give back than buying something you love and knowing you are providing a meal……pure genius! Available at Target. Click here to visit Cheeky Home.

2. SAMUEL AND SONS. When I am looking for trim, there is always one source that is a sure thing…..Samuel and Son. I have been going to them for years and though they are expensive…you get what you pay for. And there are few places that can rival their selection.

Upon entering this fabulous shop in NYC, you literally feel like a kid in a very grown up candy shop, trims of every color in the rainbow, every possible combination…suffice to say they have it all.

As I now want to finish the drapes in my dining room, I am thinking soft creamy solid silk billowy panels with a big wide luxurious tape to pull in the pale blue/gray…and sure enough Samuel and Son has it!? Click here to visit Samuel and Sons.…be prepared to stay while:) Take a look and see what all the fuss is about…

This is the tape that stopped me in my tracks…love it!

This is the one I am considering, waiting for the sample…think this on cream silk panels would be fabulous!

 

3. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. Another round of fabulous and inspiring Instagram pictures to share with you this week. Seriously the beauty is just off the charts…how did we ever live without it!

4. THE WINNERS FOR THE BATHROOMS. I so appreciated your help and input for the bathrooms “Which would you choose”. We will be getting one of these two vanities (first was sold out but on backorder, if its arrives with 1-2 weeks we will go with it, felt it was most “gym like” and like that it has room for towels. If not we will go with equally pretty #2. Will be changing faucets and hardware.

And it was a tough decision for the wallpaper as there were many beauties however seeing the sample in the room cemented my decision that #2 was the one. Just got it measured and ordering it on Tuesday, same day sink will be in:)

5. A NEW AND VERY EXCITING PROJECT IN THE WORKS! So I have been asked to participate as a designer in a very special upcoming project! Ronald McDonald house is putting on a fabulous designer showhouse where approx. 22 designers will each design a 10 x 10 room/vignette.

To kick off the gala there will be an opening night party in Oct. where Nate Berkus and Candace Olsen will be honored. I am so happy to have been asked, and despite a super hectic schedule could not say no to such a worthwhile case.

As most of you know I have three sons…so never got to design a girls room:( So…this?might be my chance!?It is very early in the process as I just committed to this days ago but I immediately started turning my wheels and I always have a starting point..and this one was my beautiful chinosierie tole lamps which I love and have always thought they were made for a gorgeous bedroom! So here is one idea, have another idea percolating…will keep you posted!

6. A SUPER EASY BUT OH SO GOOD RECIPE. I love zucchini and really love cheese, I think I could literally live on Parmesan. So I was super happy when I made these and they came out sooo tasty, I mean really good. I could justify eating an entire batch because afterall we are talking vegetables here:) Click here for the super easy recipe…..

7. A RIDICULOUSLY GORGEOUS WINERY. Can you believe how fabulous this is! Of course its none other than super tony Chateau Margaux, though the property and winery has been in existence for decades, they just underwent a super major restoration/new winery under the brilliant direction of Norman Foster.

Someone we know in the wine business recently told us about it and I had to check it out for myself.? Just check it out….also click here to learn more about this iconic winery.
