Mirror Glam

“Mirror Mirror on the Wall” 

Today is all about Mirrors. If you’re looking for a one stop shop to make a room look larger or perhaps add a bit of GLAM (which in my mind is always paramount in any room) the addition of one spectacular mirror  or mirrored anything for that matter is the absolute way to go!

The decorating ideas are endless when it comes to mirrors-a well placed mirror can:

  • Make a room look larger
  • Reflect pieces in a room you want highlighted more than once (Hence the term-“Mirror Mirror on the wall”-(reflection from a mirror allows you to see it twice in a space). 
  • Adds depth to any room
  • Adds sparkle ( my personal fave)

That’s quite a task for one design item.

Here are a few images I hope will inspire.

*If you’re  thinking that a large ornate mirror is not in your budget never fear-it’s an easy solution when you buy a  plain large mirror  and purchase molding (be it ornate or with simplified lines) and frame it out yourself. (see example below)

Pretty Patios

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

Summer is just around the corner and I for one LOVE being outdoors. There’s  really nothing better than enjoying the soft breeze of warm weather days in addition to appreciating all those extra hours of  extended sunlight.

Bearing in mind that we will be “taking IT outdoors” as they say- it’s time to pretty up your patio space. I thought you might enjoy a glimpse at some of my favorite outdoor spaces just to get your inspiration going. Now if you’re thinking GREAT show me all these amazing spaces and NOW what am I to do to get something to look even remotely like any of these images.?Not to worry that this “patio prep” is going to be arduous… because it CAN be easy and affordable -all you need is a bit of resourcefulness and your imagination. If you have an unlimited budget-then by all means HAVE AT IT! If however you  need to keep the budget in check there are soooo many resources and ways that you can spruce up your outdoor area for next to nothing. I have found some amazing finds via Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, Letgo and the usual obvious sources of  thrift shops and yard sales. If you’re willing to do a little leg work and some possible DIY-ing… you can pull together an outdoor area that is absolutely beautiful.

Enjoy and be inspired.

Let’s talk Pretty Petals

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

 

Passover & Easter  are basically cancelled this year due to the continuing quarantine. We’re unable to gather in our collective congregations and celebrate these spiritual milestones.

Sooo,what can we do to bring some sort of significance to the holiday at hand?

The answer may be as simple as  setting a beautiful bouquet of flowers  on your table in pretty pastels and gathering our quarantined family together. Flowers can be found at your local grocery store at very affordable prices.  Basically- a doable and easy way to bring some PRETTY into your day. Then you just gather the family together-(which will be a total snap- because we are quarantined) and take a moment of prayer and gratitude together… surrounded with the smell of fragrant flowers.

Peaceful… Prayerful and Pretty.

Here are a few centerpieces that I hope will inspire you to go out and purchase some pretty petals for your family to enjoy.

Be well, stay safe and healthy.

Happy Passover & Happy Easter to all my lovely readers.

I am grateful for you and wish you a beautiful celebration together.

Sensational Silver on Display

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

Here’s a little decor upgrade that I have a feeling you will  absolutely be able to participate in -without having to purchase anything….

If you’re over a certain age, you most likely have more than a few items around the house made of silver or silver plated .  If I’m guessing WHERE those items are-it would probably  be in storage. Am I right?!  Soooo here’s a thought..why not take those items out of storage, clean them up with a bit of elbow grease and silver polish and display  them in a multitude of  glamorous ways around your home.

For Example:

Silver Trays :Perfect for display. Put out a tray as decor- simply on it’s own or group items together (books, perfumes, candles etc)  and whah lah-instant glam.

Silver Tray used as a Back Splash

Silver pitchers,Urns,Tea  Sets:.Fill with any assortment of items: Kitchen  Utensils, Make up brushes,  Flowers & Plants (*Quick tip-When working with fresh flowers or any type of living  plant that needs to be watered:put  growing item in a clear container or vase /add water and only then insert into your  silver container .

Below are a few examples of creative ways to re purpose all that beautiful Silver you have in storage… Display Away!!!

Enchante’ means “nice to meet you” and what could be more welcoming than an entrance into your home that is decked out. Stripes are a perfect compliment to make an area look larger and works perfectly with well appointed accent colors and  a few well appointed pieces.

Wonderful Work Spaces

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

Hello Monday. It’s back to work !

Speaking of work …did you know that 43% of Americans work from home! Bearing in mind that  a home office is almost a requirement these days, I thought it might be nice to post some wonderful work spaces that inspire! If you’re looking  to do a little sprucing UP for Spring, I’ve sourced a bevy of beautiful images  & BONUS- my top three items that every home office should have to make your day productive and pleasurable.

When it comes to having a work space that inspires creativity and productivity,here are a few features you want to keep in mind when upgrading your space:

  1. A comfortable  office chair . You’re going to be doing allot of sitting in that chair so it best be comfortable and if per chance it has a bit of style…all the better.  Gone are the days of sitting in a standard  swivel chair with lackluster style. Today you can use a bevy of beautiful seating alternatives to get to  your Chair Bliss.
  2. A desk that fits your space and your needs: At the bare minimum you have to have a desk or table big enough for your computer and offers a space for you to write. That’s the minimum. It needs to be the right width and height so you can work comfortably.
  3. Lighting:  Good lighting is key! Natural light is  an added bonus in any room not to mention looking outside and seeing a bit of nature is always inspiring.

Tuesday Tip-Delightful Daybeds

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

Today’s Tuesday Tip is all about the Delightful Daybed.

The holidays are just around the corner and there’s always that possibility of an overnight guest needing a place to stay. The daybed is  the perfect solution for offering a secluded space for one and at the same time can be put in  dual purpose setting because the daybed doesn’t actually look like a bed and can be a welcome addition to just about any living space in your home.

Daybeds can be found in a bevy of price points ranging from $500-$5,000,but you needn’t spend a fortune to make your daybed look luxe.  Simply  by adding some beautiful pillows, cover  the bed with a comfy duvet or bedspread (preferably tucked in if the daybed you have has a mattress)   and add a major pop of decor like an impressive overhead canopy or some pretty eye catching rugs, coffee or side tables and whah lah…you have a room ready for any guest to feel welcome and pampered.

If you’re looking for a little daybed dreaminess, here are a few examples that I hope will inspire.
