example of a child's drawing...

I came across this fun website the other day, and thought I would share with you, our loyal readers!

Get this: you, or your kids, can create a drawing and this company, Carpetzz, will make a rug for you from that drawing! It sounds so fun, doesn’t it?!

This could be the perfect way to finish out a play room, child’s bathroom or bedroom. Imagine how exciting and unique it would be!

Check out the website for more exmples and pricing:

If you have a rug created or if you have done this before, we’d love to hear about it!

the finishing touch…

Ok, so you painted your walls that fresh, new color you have been dreaming about, you re-arranged your furniture, and you just hung a fabulous piece of art that you found at a local art fair… but your room still doesn’t feel ‘done’…  what your space needs is custom window treatments!

Being designers, we have the greatest resources for the very best in fabrics, hardware, and sewing workrooms to make sure that your window treatment is perfect for you and your space.

Here are some examples of window treatments we designed for a home near Lake Waconia…

In this eat-in kitchen, we used inverted blox pleats and a Romo fabric to make the space feel special and little dressed up.

This little girl's bedroom Roman shade has turquoise trim as it's accent. The color pops off of the orange perfectly.

In the master bedroom, we used Butterfly pleats with the soft floral Villa Romo fabric.

There are many uses for window treatments: controlling light, dressing up a space, softening the hard lines of the window, and adding some privacy to name a few. Take a look around your home and see if something feels amiss, it might just be that you need some fabric on your windows! 🙂
Happy Friday!

vintage find!

August 17, 2010

While out at one of our favorite vintage stores in Minneapolis, we came across these ‘too-cute-to-pass-up’ pages from a old childrens’ book. (lucky us!)

Wouldn’t these look great framed in a nursery, kids’ bedroom, or kids’ playroom?!

There are about 20 of them all together and each one features a different flower, poem, and illustration.

What fun!
