Thomas Round Mirror

Although I still love to look through their mailed catalog page by page for great inspiration and ideas, I usually buy online.  I have had my eye on this Thomas mirror, (just purchased for a client), and am going to find a spot somewhere in my new home for this beauty.

Looking for a way to jazz up your staircase?  I have been researching ideas for my new home and somehow came across photos of wallpapering up the stairs. It really caught my eye and I just love the look:

Be sure to go with a dramatic, bold pattern when featuring wallpaper on one wall such as the staircase:

If you are looking to change up the look of a room or just to update for the season, new art is a great way to begin your color palette. Using the artwork above as an example, you can bring in so much color with a blue and white area rug and bright happy pillows and throws in raspberry, plum and gold.

I also found on their site A-line dresses which I love for summer:
