Pinstripe Walls – DIY

April 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

Pinstripe walls are very sophisticated and classy, just like a classy pinstripe suit.
Emily Henderson, HGTV’s latest Design Star, gave a wonderful tip on how to paint pinstripe walls.
I will speak of this in terms of the photograph below. First paint your base coat black. Then use 2 inch think painters tape, measuring it at the top and bottom to make sure its even, and leave a thin space between each (about 1/8 inch) for your white stripes. Then you paint another coat of black paint where the white stripes will be in the end, this is to make sure that the bleeding, which is unavoidable, will be the black onto the black. Then you paint your white layer. When it is dry, remove the tape. There will be some little imperfects, but just touch them up with a small paint brush.

La Cornue – The Most Beautiful Ranges

April 2, 2011 § 2 Comments

La Cornue is a French company that have been around for nearly a century, making the most beautiful ranges I have ever seen. Highly luxurious with a European style. It is appliance art.

I favor the CornueFe’ Series. It is their smallest line but still perfectly large enough for any home. The CornueFe’ series comes in two varieties, the 110 and the 90. The 90 has one electric convection ovens where as the 110 has two. Both have 5-burner, gas cook tops and are available in six body colors and three metal trims. These beautiful ranges are of course pricey, the CornueFe’ 90 for $6,800 and the CornueFe’ 110 for $8600 at William Sonoma.

Miinu Carpets – #1 On My Wish List

April 1, 2011 § 1 Comment

Minnu has recently launched their first collection of carpets called “Industrial” which is inspired by travel and the shifts in the industry and culture of each place. Each carpet is made from historic textiles over 50 years old and they come in 16 different colors, including the “All Nations” carpet, which is composed of all the nations colors. Each carpet is also customizable.

What draws me to these carpets are the deep, rich and vibrant colors as well as the intriguing history they hold. They would make such a beautiful focal point in a room, a piece of art on its own.
