Las Vegas Market Trends – Part 6 – for the birds

 Not sure if this qual­i­fies as a trend, but it was cer­tainly a hugely pop­u­lar motif.  Birds, birds every­where!  Pea­cocks were the most com­mon, but plenty of their avian friends made an appear­ance.  A col­or­ful, fun acces­sory with a nat­u­ral­is­tic vibe can bring a lit­tle zing to your home.  And that delight­ful lit­tle crow-foot table from Global Views?  He (she?) is the per­fect fit for my kitchen seat­ing area — LOVE!

Fea­tured pieces from CAS, Cyan Design, Guild­Mas­ter, Haute House, Jaipur Home and Left Bank Art.

Las Vegas Market Trends – Part 5 – outdoor zest

It's a lit­tle harder in New Eng­land given the weather, but many areas of the coun­try really embrace three sea­son and four sea­son out­door liv­ing. And it is so refresh­ing to see out­door décor beyond the typ­i­cal Adiron­dack chairs or big-box store plas­tic stack­ing chairs.  If you had one (or more) of these beau­ti­ful ele­ments grac­ing your patio or yard, wouldn't you be out­side ALL the time?

Col­lec­tions from Dee­sawat, Somers Fur­ni­ture, Patio Heaven and others.

 

This intrigu­ing col­lec­tion of ethanol-burning fire­places is suit­able for indoor as well as out­door appli­ca­tions. No mess, no off-gassing, fab styling — what's not to love? Col­lec­tion from the Aus­tralian com­pany ecos­mart­fire.

Loveable Wellies

This has been quite a week of rain and slush, so a great time to look into a pair of cute Wellies.  Our mod­ern Welling­ton boot is based on leather Hes­s­ian boots from the early 19th cen­tury. First pop­u­lar­ized by Arthur Welles­ley, 1st Duke of Welling­ton, they soon became fash­ion­able among  the British aristocracy.

You don’t wear them often, and when you do, it’s usu­ally glum, rainy and muddy.  So break away from sen­si­ble black shoes and go a lit­tle crazy with color and style. These are meant to be fun and bring a smile to your face!
