Beautiful Bath

What a stunning yet serene bath! The high detailed backsplash, the soft muted tones, the painted wall scene, and the bell lantern equal perfection. The inset mirrors on the paneled bath surround are the finishing touch to this calming and elegant space.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

Stunning Stairs Part II

Continuing with the theme from our last stair post, here are more inspirational stairway images...

Notice the decorative metal balusters. Such a handsome detail.

Love the antelope print! So fun and fresh.

Love the metal "X" motif for the balustrade here. 

Another great storage idea!

The curves of this staircase are so appealing. It makes you wonder what's upstairs! 

Everything about this stairway is beautiful-the railing, the baluster, the lighting, the plaster walls...

The Chinoiserie fretwork makes these stairs so lively and fun. Love the light fixture too!

The twisted iron rods with the X motif patterned sisal gives this stairway a subtle, but elegant sense of style.

Gorgeous metal balustrade. Stunning.

Which stair image best represents your style? DO tell!

Ro Sham Beaux - not your average lighting company!

I am back!  I have been on maternity leave for 4 months now and have enjoyed every minute of it!  My husband and I have the most amazing, sweet, beautiful little boy named Miles.  He is the light in our lives.  Every morning he melts our hearts with his sweet smile and coo's.

While on maternity leave, I did a bit of browsing the web (during naptime)  for new lines of furniture and lighting- so I thought I would start showing you what I have found.  Man- there are some amazing lines that I had never even heard of and cannot wait to use in a project!

Here is the first line that I just have to share with our readers!!!  Again, if you think you are interested in ordering a piece or getting pricing please do not hesitate to email us at

Stunning Stairs

Stairways can be a wonderful opportunity to show your sense of style, but more often than not, these spaces are just an afterthought when it comes to design. With some planning, thought, and creativity, stairways don't have to be ho-hum

The lucite hand rail is oh so chic here!

We found this image from Morris Hullinger's website here. What a beautiful iron balustrade design.

This entry is so breathtaking! Love the stone wall against the staircase.

We love the clean lines of this tailored runner. The chunky rope handrail adds a masculine, yet nautical touch.  

What a cute idea! Each member of the family has their own basket.

Now this is a fantastic storage idea, hidden behind beautiful paneling underneath the stairs!

Love the trendy chevron runner mixed with all the classic elements of this entry space: the stained wooden handrail, the painted wooden balustrade, and the pretty wainscoting.

 A very sleek and modern stairway using a rustic raw wood. Love the juxtaposition here.

Hope these images inspire...More to come!
