More HPMKT2014 Inspiration … and what came home!

All those who share my love for animal print and hides … 
Let me put your mind at ease.
It is still hot.

And I would like to say, that while the "hide" has been a trend of late … it is classic … Hides and Animal patterns have been used in Interior Design Forever.  So no fear of it growing old.  It is truly a look I will never tire of.

HPMKT2014 showed me a few new twists that I think you will like!

"Skins" on everything! This is a lamp Base.

Leather. Wood. Brass.

Yep.  Something for Everyone … 

But back to my preference … 
Emerald with Brass Nailheads.

Turquoise with Chrome Nailheads.

And the Pièce de Résistance … 
Zebra and Chrome.  Bring It Home!

So I didn't bring the Chair home … but found this 
Hide Pillow that looks like a Tiara to me.

And she came home.
And she's happy on my Orange Hide Chair!!

With Chrome NailHeads … by the way!!

Making the World More Beautiful.  One Room at a Time.




All the talk this season about fur ... fake or real ... it seems to be out there.  To wear it or add it in your design plan?  Don and I attended an event at one of his hotels, Aria, in Las Vegas earlier this year ... and these stools took my breath away ... couldn't you just imagine curling up on or around these by a fire on a cold winter's night?  Okay, they are too small to curl up on ... but really, they are divine!  They are made from Alpaca ... no animal was harmed!!

The tips of the trees are starting to turn ... every so slightly.  I love Summer more than anything ... but as the weather starts to shift, I find myself welcoming the cooler temperatures.  Pulling my sweaters down from the top shelf and starting to cocoon.   

And, plus ... there is AUBURN football!!  Revel in the changes of the season ...
