Inspiration Friday: Bathrooms that will take your breath away

It’s a cold and snowy day here in Northern Massachusetts-the kind of day where the local weather person warns against traveling on the roads unless it is absolutely necessary. I was not able to heed this warning, so needless to say, it has been a very stressful day.  And after finally putting my two year old son to bed I am ready to relax;  a glass of wine, a little bit of bubble bath and my favorite novel….this is my sanctuary.

Creating a place in your home where you can unwind and recharge at the end of the day is an important thing you can do to safe guard your health. In this weeks post we’ll take a look at how some talented interior designers have used high-end upholstery fabric and trims to transform ordinary bathrooms into sanctuaries.

As always, if you’d like to contact any of the interior designers whose work is featured in this post, just click on the image to go directly to their site.

Sanctuary, on a personal level, is where we perform the job of taking care of our soul.

Inspiration Friday: Decorative Designer Throw Pillows

Hi Readers,

Throw pillows are a great way to easily add interest and breathe new life into the decor of any living space.  In this weeks Inspiration Friday post we’ll take a look at some spectacular designer throw pillows and give tips on how you recreate the look of these gorgeous accent pillows.

By the way, if you’d like to contact any of the interior designers whose work is featured in this post, just click on the image to go directly to their site.

You don’t have to be a dog lover to appreciate this Yorkie Pillow. Here the designer used a vintage embroidered fabric and 3″ Gold Tassel fringe to create this classic look.

If you are lucky enough to own an embroidery sewing machine, you too can create this look. First you’ll need to select the picture that you would like to use. If the image is already in digital format (jpeg, png, etc) then you just need to make sure that you save it in the correct format that your sewing machine can read then embroider the design on your fabric.

What little girl wouldn’t love to have a couple of throw pillows like this in their bedroom?   This is a fun & creative design was created by Maggie Hunt. Here the she used bold colored silk dupioni and accented the design with a frilly eyelash fabric fringe.  To give the center of the flower more of a 3-d effect she used the same eyelash fabric fringe in a contrasting color.

These silk pillows are trimmed with jasper red silk, gold cord and freshwater pearls.

This elegant look was achieved by using velvet upholstery fabric 3/8″ gold poly check cord with edge and luxurious gold tassels. In this case it’s the use of high-end decorator fabrics and sewing trims that makes this simple bolster pillow a one of a kind masterpiece.

Inspiration Friday: Fantastic Window Treatments

Get ready to oooh and ahhhh dear readers, because in this weeks Inspiration Friday post we’re bringing you some of the most beautiful window treatments we’ve seen in years. By the way, if you’d like to contact any of the interior designers who created these fantastic window treatments just click the image to go directly to their site.

So just sit back and pour yourself another Latte and enjoy the view!

What makes this silk window treatment so special is the designers use of a silky high-end tassel fringe trim.  By using high quality products and a classic pattern the designer created something that was truly spectacular.

Imagine having this in your home……….hmmm.  Ok now wake up!

What makes this so spectacular is the designers use of a upholstery weight cord trim to link the tassels there-by creating a decadent effect. This designer chooses a brush fringe to help further accent the beautiful scalloped edges.  It transforms the window and the view outside creating a dramatic but elegant effect.

This designers bold use of color is to be admired. The beautiful rayon blend tassel fringe is in a complementary color which was pulled from the floral pattern in the draperies fabric. By using a tassel fringe fabric trim that was heavy weight but still had a silky feel they were able to create a one of a kind masterpiece.

I love this designers use of bold colors and heavy bullion fringe. By selecting multiple colors of a gorgeous silk fabric and pairing it with a lovely rayon bullion fringe this designer has added to the overall design and color scheme.

Here’s another example of how pairing upholstery fabrics with the right high-end sewing trim can turn a relatively simple design into a masterpiece.  The designer used a heavier weight upholstery fabric with a 3″ Bullion.

Yup, I’ve saved the best for last. This beautiful window treatment absolutely takes my breath away.
