trends from high point | velvet

Continuing with the trend that the recession is over is shown again with THE fabric of market...velvet.  Its luxurious feel paired with its usually rich jewel tones pair well with the rich woods that are also being seen so much more.  I love that it is being used a lot with dining chairs as well...  an area where so many thing of more wipeable fabrics.

There was no question about it...this is THE it fabric for upholstery!

trends from high point | burl wood

Last week was High Point Market.  A time to see all that is new in home I thought I would dedicate this week to the top trends I found at High Point.  The common thing I heard over and over was that the recession is over (woohoo!) and you can so tell with the way the trends are headed.  You saw less and less painted furniture that looked like it was removed from a barn...or I loved when Meredith Heron said she was so glad to not see things she thought may give her tetanus when she sat on them!  Trends are going more and more towards quality and luxury.

Trends in wood....

Out: Chalk painted & distressed....hallelujah!

In: Burl & Rich wood tones ( all time favorite)

I have done a post on burl before...but its so pretty I don't think you'll mind seeing more!

When shopping for burl pieces when it comes to vintage Milo Baughman & Thayer Coggin are my favs, and for current designs Jonathan Adler has some great pieces.

one room challenge | week 4: kuka juice

After a week in High Point for market and a quick trip home to Nashville...i'm back in SC and can give you a quick update on the One Room Challenge.  While I don't have photos of the little progress that was made while I was gone...these things (that are going to make a big impact) did arrive!

Faux "living" boxwood wall....i'm pretty obsessed with this and now need an outdoor space to cover it in!

Ceiling tiles!!! Adios crap that reminds me of a school lunch room.

While my updates have been less than shocking hopefully the end result will all be worth it!

To make up for it... go and check out the 5 giveaways I have had this week to celebrate Confetti & Stripes turning 2!

And don't forget to check out all the progress everyone else has made with the One Room Challenge

birthday giveaway week | day 5

To end out the birthday week today is the final giveaway!  I have a slight coffee table/ design book obsessions.  One of the best gifts I ever received was an Amazon Prime account (or maybe it was just a form of enabling me :/ )  But anyways...My newest favorite design book just happened to also be by one of my all time favorite design bloggers.  And a blogger who's success was a motivator when I decided to quit my job to do design and blogging full time!  Erin Gates of Elements of Style's book is seriously awesome and like reading a print version of her blog!

Because this is the final giveaway there are several ways to enter.  Just make sure to come back and leave a separate comment for each one that you do...otherwise they won't be counted!

Don't forget to leave a separate comment for each!

One winner will receive one copy of Elements of Style.  
Giveaway ends 11/1/14 @ 11:59pm CST; winner announced 11/2/14 on the blog!

Also enter for day 1, 2, 3, & 4
