5 Thanksgiving Tables and 1 Good Looking Turkey

With only a week to go, we thought we would help out with a little table inspiration for your Thanksgiving table. Whether you are hosting 1 or 21, these are some great ideas!

The best advice we can give is to keep it natural. Your Thanksgiving table shouldn't be extravagant. Let the food take center stage...and we have the Turkey that will do just that-see the end of our post.

roast according to you favorite family recipe.

Nothing like a little sun tan on your Turkey :)

The Rainbow Room is LIVE!!

It's finally here!

All this week we have been busy gathering and installing our Tastemaker space for the Antique Show at the Botanical Gardens. It is now finished and ready for your viewing (and buying) pleasure! If you need to add some color to your home, this is the time and place to make a move!

So many other wonderful designers and vendors are also at the show, so if you have not already, make plans to join us this weekend!

A Classic Color

Navy is such a classic color, and here recently it has been used in some non-traditional ways. 

Think cabinet color. 
Maybe you are looking for a way to change up your all white kitchen (which I'm sure is fabulous), but hate to loose the marble you sought after for months and months?  

Consider Navy!

If you don'y want to commit to all over navy, look how well the navy contrasts against the white and how yummy it looks with the brass pulls!

I think I hear your kitchen calling!

Hillary Thomas Designs

Here is something I bet you rarely think about. Finials. You may search and search for that perfect table lamp, but I am willing to bet you have never lost sleep over what finial to put on that lamp next to your reading chair.  Don't feel bad, we really have never either...until now.

You may have seen on our facebook page the pictures of our most recent market trip and the discovery of Hillary Thomas Designs. We loved it so much we are featuring her finials in our Tastemaker booth during the Antiques at the Gardens. We can't wait for you to see them in person!

Take a peak!

Orange You Glad It's the Weekend

Yes, it has been a while since our last post! We have been getting our last bit of vacationing in before school starts back and things really start picking up again!
August is all about Orange and with fall approaching, what better hue to embrace?

A little Hermes inspiration for your Friday...

Doesn't this room remind you of a Hermes gift box?

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Family Room Fluff

This morning Marjorie and Katie dashed into a clients home to "fluff" their Den before they return home from vacation.  We accomplished a lot in only a couple hours! Everything we used was existing, but a little rearranging can go a long way!





Have a Great Weekend!!!

Hey there July!! We have definitely been enjoying you! As we try to get back into the swing of things over here after a glorious week long vacation, we wanted to share our first pool blue post with you. Who doesn't like the color blue? Anyone? 

You can find this kitchen on Fire Island, NY. The Countertops are White Manhattan Calacatta and backsplash is blue Veneto glass tile.

Wendy had the pleasure of designing a young teen girls room back in May. To see the room you may think, "Wow that is a whole lotta pink!", but if you knew this sweet child, you would totally understand why Wendy went  ALL GIRL on this one. The room was put together in seriously, 2 days. Shopping on day 1 and the install came the next day. Big thanks to A Wise Move for their heavy lifting, and to Stephen Dickerson for making the window panels in less than 48 hours!!



repositioning the bed to the opposite wall really opened
up the room

Love this John Robshaw bedding!

she was in desperate need of storage!
No more excuses for clothes on the floor :)

the perfect reading chair

Like the Pink ceiling? We are beginning to see more and more bold colors on horizontal services here lately! 

Here is another Pink ceiling from Tineke is our month of pink after all!
