American Relaxing

 By: Karen016_mandlay_bo_moccassin_008

Baseball.  Apple Pie.  Hot Dogs.  All of these things scream, summer in America to me.  And I love them all.  So when it came to redecorating my sun porch this year, it seemed like a logical option to go with an American theme.  I already had a white theme from the previous year, so all I had to do was update it with some red, white, and blue.

Growing up…

By: Karen

metro_tang_br_003So, like a lot of moms, I decorated my daughter’s room in all pink, with lacy curtains and delicate decorations.  And, like most girls when they grow up, they get bored of pink walls, and the decorations their moms’ thought would look good in their room.  Which brings me to my current dilemma, which is that my daughter decided she hates her room, and her wall color and asked when I was planning on letting her redecorate.  When I started asking her what she thought would be a good color, or if she had any ideas in mind, she informed me that she already decided that she wanted a “daisy” room.

A lot of the interiors such as bedding and furniture have also taken the pattern of the retro look. You can’t even flip through an interior design magazine without seeing a big patterned accent wall. With all the new styles and textures approaching it’s a great way to plan a room based on colors and retro patterns. A couple of great options for window treatments that fall in this trend are available.

Tropical Getaway

By: Karen

We just got back from our summer vacation, a fabulous adventure to the Caribbean. We stayed in a resort right on the beach, where we had our own private cabana right on the beach. It was perfect, we had our own front porch looking over the water, and we woke up to the view right outside the windows. Clearly, we didn’t want to leave. I was however inspired to make over our bedroom to look like a tropical getaway, so we could bring a little bit of the feeling of vacation home (even though we definitely don’t have the ocean outside our window).
