Beauty of Thom Felicia Furniture

You are probably familiar with Thom Felicia from "Queer Eyes for the Straight Guys". Do you remember that show? We kinda miss it from time to time. We don't know any straight guy who watched it though, only straight girls, hoping to fix up their men...

Anyway, Thom Felicia is getting to be a major licensing house. He's doing rugs for Safavieh, fabric for Kravet etc. The latest is a furniture collection from Vanguard Furniture. It's quite lovely and original.

Beauty Window Treatment Ideas


Coming up with interesting window treatment ideas that bring out the best in your windows as they bring in the sunshine, is a challenge to anyone with a yen to decorate. There are tons of non-traditional options and tips to make the most of what you have, and give your windows that million dollar look on a mostly discount budget.

How about recycling old items? If you inherited lace tablecloths that are no longer fresh and white, you can still get a lot of mileage and an interesting antique window treatment, by using a sewing machine to turn the tablecloths into window curtain panels. You might even have some old lace curtains on hand, that need to be brightened, but the bleaches have failed you.

Accept their "age" and build on it, by staining them with tea for a totally antique look. Simply take a bucket and use half hot water and half boiling water, to "steep" 30 black tea bags. When the water is dark, add your curtains and stir the mixture. Then let them sit for 30 hours, with the occasional stir to keep the color evenly distributed. Remove the curtains, squeeze out the liquid, and hang them to dry.

Window treatment ideas aren't always about curtains. The once popular wooden window blinds are making a comeback with people who prefer the warm, natural tones of wood to go with a wide variety of décors. Antique folding window covers can be had for a song at garage and auction sales, then refinished, and if you are artistic at all, decorated with tole paintings.

Pretty and Chic Furniture for Smaller Spaces

We found this adorable line at the Las Vegas Market a couple of years back and we thought we share it with you. They make really cute, adorable furniture that are smaller in scale --quite perfect if you have a small apartment or condo to furnish. The furniture usually comes in neutral colors, which makes it easy to accessorize. They are quite stylish and inexpensive.

Here are a few samples:



The occasional chair runs about $600, sofa is about $1500, chair about $300, bed about $1600.

Has the fear of decorating has overwhelmed you? Even if you have never held a paint roller or repositioned a sofa, take comfort. These tips will empower you and engage your creative gene.

1) The first rule is to be familiar with the space you will be decorating

Grab a pencil, tape measure, and graph paper and make a scale layout of the room’s perimeter. Even if you possess excellent spatial relational abilities, this is recommended because the best visual remembrances fail against the reality of a scaled drawing in front of you.

With the representation of the room, it is possible to determine the sizes of furniture you have or that you wish to purchase.

2) Making a checklist helps

Shopping for decorating supplies? Writing a list now will save you frustration later. Even if you do not purchase everything, check off what you get as you get it. Keep those paint chips, fabric samples and flooring swatches with you to coordinate with furniture, lighting and accessories, whether shopping online or in a brick and mortar store.

3) Establish a budget range

The guidelines of a budget save not only your wallet but sometimes your relationship. If you choose to splurge, at least you do so intentionally.

4) Walls and floors are your frame

What is not happening in NYC

That is the question to ask around this time in NYC where everything is starting to happen. If you are visiting or living in the City and are a design aficionado you won't find time to actually keep up with all the activities available for inspiration.

There is DIFFA's 13th Dining by Design from March 18-21 where you'll be able to see the original creations which selected designers create while also sampling food and wine pairings of TABLE HOP & TASTE.

Right next door so you don't even have to venture anywhere else is the 9th annual Architectural Digest Home Design Show. More than 300 premium brands will exhibit their products, 1stdibs will have an antiques and mid-century section, The New York Times will host Design seminars and many other interesting activities. For more information go here. Below a photo of ADHDS 2009.


Also in the same roof is the GO GREEN EXPO, with 250 plus exhibits in areas such as food, health, transportation, home & building and others. As part of the show the ADHDS has The Architecture and Design Film Festival, March 19-21, 2010 presenting an evening of films ending with a panel discussion on Sunday.

And of course I can't ignore the very much anticipated 2010 Kips Bay Decorator Show House relocated to 26 West 76th Street, New York from April 30th to May 28th. Exclusive designers are assigned a room which they transform into stunning spaces.

Whatever interests you there is plenty to do in the City. Enjoy.
