Yesterday I visited a 90 plus years old client, bless her heart. She was extremely appreciative that I came to give her new blinds. She says everyone says they are coming and they never come. It was my pleasure to meet her. She knew exactly what she wanted and I was able to fill her needs. This is one reason why I like what I do. Ms C you Rock!
I’ve been quite busy all over the boroughs since the year has started.
I am sharing my hottest selling product currently. It is the Allure transitional shade. Here is a picture. It is almost like a two in one shade. You are able to adjust the amount of light in your room. Let me know what you think about it.
On the scene today and making a powerful surge going forward, are green bedding products and materials that are as earth friendly as they are beautiful. Eco-fabrics with the look and feel of fine silk, and attractive organic cottons merge comfort with a feeling of extravagance.
But don’t be fooled—luxury still meets responsibility when we’re talking green. Most homeowners who go for green couture are also interested in the story behind the products. For example, one bedding line features socially responsible linens produced in Egypt where the cotton is grown, spun, and woven, and the linens are sewn and embroidered by underprivileged women who are taught some of these new skills, and new companies are showing up all the time to help provide a trade and business opportunities for people who otherwise would have none.
So if luxury is what you want, but you want to be socially responsible, go ahead and think green couture! You help others, you help the earth, and you increase the peace, harmony, and luxury within your own happy home.

Well I just recently got back to work. My grandma passed at the age of 99. May her soul rests in peace. Love you grandma. It was great seeing everyone. What a huge family but it’s all good. Now I am back trying to catch up and move on. Thanks for all the support.
Accessories can add a big difference when designing a space, because they are relatively inexpensive compared to furniture, and can be an easy way for to gain confidence with color. There are numerous fabulous accessories that are unusual and interesting, and colorful as well. You can use them as art as you design your “crib”. Here is an opportunity to be bold by adding pops of color through accessories that can be easily replaced if you change your mind, or used in another room at a later time. Vases, glass bottle, and imported pieces can really add style. Pillows are excellent for adding color and texture, as are throws. Both can be absolutely gorgeous with the right trims and embellishment. A floral arrangement can do wonders for a burst of color. The mantle is a great place for these items, and large arrangements look great on accent tables in living rooms and foyers, as they can bring many stunning colors and different levels of height to the room, which adds interest.
