A Fresh New Start!

As the year ends, I wonder what the next will bring. I'm optimistic that 2011 will bring new ideas, new clients, new friends, and great inspiration. I always want to stay postitive that there is so much more for all of us in the future of interior design.

I'm excited to think that with the dropping of the ball, it's a fresh new beginning. Anything is possible. I can't wait to start designing new things. Creating new inspiring spaces. Seeing what great new finds are out there. And I can't wait to share them with all of you. We will be bringing in new products, new styles and a brand new look here at The Window Scene.

We are going a little more high tech, to help you get inspired and visualize the end result in your interior design needs. We will be offering more design options and a better range of vendors.  Stop by in the New Year and see what new great products have been added.  Let's all get ready to decorate!
So welcome 2011! It's going to be a great year!

Just Announced!! The Pantone 2011 Color of the Year is....

Honeysuckle! Read what Pantone has to say about this hot hue for 2011:

Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.

 While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”

There are many great ways to incorporate Honeysuckle into your home decor. Add pops of color with toss pillows, table runners, and other home accessories. A single wall painted in this vibrant hue can add excitement and energy.
Love the color but not sure how to work it into your existing decor? Call for an in-home design consultation, and let me show you all the possibilities.

Fresh New Looks!

Fresh new looks coming to the Window Scene!  For some reason, I can't get enough of a few styles, one being anything Swedish/or vintage, and two being anything from the UK. Is it just me, or do these fabrics rock! We should have some samples at the store in a couple of weeks. I love the palette and the dainty style of the prints.  Let me know what you think!

Loving Linen...

Whether slipcovered on a sofa or in gorgeous window treatments such as the ones below, pure linen offers natural comfort, durability and elegance to any room in your home. The versatility of the natural look that linen provides is unparalleled. Keep it casual with cottons or dress it up with velvet to bring luxe to your life. I know, I know: linen is not a perfect fabric. It wrinkles easily. But isn't that part of the charm? Take a look at these wonderful ways to add linen to your world.

Elegant style!

We have a few new looks coming to The Window Scene. Check out what's coming! Arent these lights to die for.

Private Label Candles - Coming Soon!

Okay, really, how frustrating is it to spend a ton of money on a candle only to get it home, light it and have it have no scent? It drives me crazy. So I decided to do something about it. I've been working with a scentologist and have found a great company designing my own scents for the Window Scene. It was like I was on an underground search for the secret to finding a candle that actually smelled like something once lit! So I decided to call them Black Market Candles. They are soy-based, clean burning, and have a super long burn time with a great price in a pretty container. Say good bye to the big candle factory candles that don't last and are super expensive. Say hello to Black Market Candles. Coming soon! We will have a little contest to see what scent would be your favorite! I will submit a list soon and whichever scent receives the most votes will be the winner and become a Black Market signature scent.

Free Gift with purchase!

Ikat... Even though it's been in vogue before, Ikat keeps resurfacing in the fashion industry. I think it has had its run again, but in small doses it still makes a nice statement.

Glass Lamps.... Are virtually timeless. They will work in a Retro, Traditional or Modern setting. A nice blown glass lamp always a great accent in any room.

Modern Floral.... Designers love this mini-trend. It's flower power at its finest! It works just fine on a traditional chair as well as on any contemporary piece. I love to throw it into a space for a little flair!

Chain Link..... You have to love this one! All though it hasn't caught on just yet, it will and it will be a fabulous additon to accent most decors.

Letters..... Okay, I love it! On bags, pillows, art, you name it. Monograms, words on walls. It just says COOL in your design plan.
It makes you stop and look, and isn't that what we are looking for?

So here are a few design mini-trends for you to use in your home. Need help trying to figure out which one? Give us a call or send us an email. I'm sure we can help!

Custom-Made...Now's the Time!

I get this question all the time. Why should I start to think about custom decorating? In the past, you have probably bought a quick valance at a box store or discount house, or you ordered on-line what you believed was a quality item, only to be disappointed when it arrived. The color is wrong. The fabric is cheap. It's uneven. It's a mess. The thought of having something custom-made is just so out of your realm you don't even think about it as a possibility.

Well, I'm here to say: You can do it! The time is now, and I'm here to help. The task is not daunting. With the experience of a knowledgable decorator to guide you, it will be simple and fun! You will love your final product, and you will love the process. I will make sure of it. Take advantage of the summertime to transform your home, so that when your family and friends arrive this holiday season, you will have the most beautiful space to share. To take pictures in. To spend time in. To enjoy.

Custom isn't a quick fix. It takes a little extra time. Decisions must be made. But the extra time you spend up front will be well worth your while in the long run, because there is nothing like a custom product when it comes right down to it. You pick your favorite colors, fabrics and trims. You are the boss. It is one-of-a-kind, made with the finest craftmanship. It's personal, it's beautiful, it's quality, and it's custom-made just for you and your home.

Come by the store and let us show you the exciting possibilities. You won't be disappointed.
