BACK IN ACTION…

Ok I know we have been slackers on the blog recently but it has been a busy few months,,,I know, I know no excuses. My New Year’s resolution is to definitely dedicate more time to this blog and rock it out!
We have had so many great things happening recently that have absorbed our attention and we can’t wait to share them with you. I like to think we have been on a creative sabbatical. From 2 fabulous weddings to our custom designed fabrics, our new Co-Op Boutique “Quondam” in the river district and our custom designed stationary line “Fresh Pulp”. Some great pics coming soon!
Speaking of great bloggers our friend Melissa over at MGA Interiors has some wonderful posts and information on her blog. I love her style of writing. She puts a lot of feeling in her writing and it feels like a great cup of tea or a warm latte. She recently posted a blog on the color trends for 2011 and it seems we may really be ahead of the curve. Our boutique Quondam at The Franklin Shops will be wrapped in all of theses lovely colors. Come and shop with us for the new year for chic home decor and unique gift ideas. “Modern Designs for Vintage Finds” but in the mean time check out MGA Interiors article on color forecast here

Summer Sunshine

So yesterday was officially the first day of summer, although I must say here in Florida it’s been feeling like summer for awhile now. We recently blogged on Summer Blues but now since it’s official, it’s time for some sunshine! I always love accents of a bold color in a room. It adds an element of surprise. But you want to make sure when adding the pops of color that there is a method to the madness. Make sure your backdrop is balanced in proportion, texture and color variation. Don’t hesitate to use bold patterns but make sure they compliment each other.

Here are just few snippets of some of my favorite cheerful interiors that have a sophisticated elegance with bright accents of yellow. See how the yellow dances off of the cool grays and makes a beautiful contrast with the classic look of black and white. Whatever you choose to pair it with, just a little bit of this vibrant hue goes a long way.

Check out some products you find at Studio Six Eleven as well as our Etsy shop Quondam We have many lines of designer furniture , lighting , one of a kind vintage re-styled accessories and lots of bright ideas for your nest. Give us a shout this summer to help
you bring new light to a room!

Save the Date Handkerchiefs

Check out these”Save the Date” hankies. These are so charming and whimsical and a great DIY project. This would be charming and eco-friendly if you had vintage handkerchiefs from Grandma or a close famly member and just wanted to send them to relatives to keep them in the family. These were made by Rachel, a reader of the Style Me Pretty Blog! This is great blog with tons of wedding inspiration and color boards.
