May – July 2014 Paint Colors

Suzanne Kasler bedroom with blue wall color

Because we shoot in real homes, we are not always at liberty to paint the walls. In those cases, we have chosen paint colors that best match the wall color in the photo. Please be aware that color may vary due to various light conditions, finish and other factors.  Therefore, it’s always a great idea to test a paint sample on your wall first. We use Benjamin Moore paint, but most paint stores can match any color.

Sunny skies, a warm breeze, and maybe the sound of waves crashing outside? All of these can only mean one thing, summer has arrived! This year, we couldn’t help but be inspired by the waterfront that so many of us are drawn to during this time of year. As a result, you’ll see lots of nautical-inspired spaces, breezy neutrals, and ocean hues on the pages of our Summer catalog.

      Unfortunately the bedding in that space is discontinued, although we do still have a limited selection of the pieces in that collection.
      We do have lots of other striped bedding collections though. You might like our Gigi Striped Tassel Bedding which has a casual, beachy vibe like the Riviera Linen Bedding. So glad you like these pieces, and thanks for visiting our blog.

        Unfortunately, we no longer have that rug available on our site. However, we have a similar striped rug currently offered called the”Vineyard Striped Rug”. You can find it here:

      Unfortunately, that bedding is no longer available. However, we do currently offer a similar style, the Annabel Heirloom Patchwork Quilted Bedding, which you may like better.

      Unfortunately that tower shelf is no longer available. We do have a similar one though — our Grand Tour Etagere in whitewash.
      Happy Decorating!
