Candice Olson=Divine Fabrics!

Candice Olson

In case you haven’t heard, Kravet carries a fabulous line of fabrics from famed interior designer, Candice Olson.  You may recognize her from her hit HGTV show Divine Design.

Candice is probably my favorite tv interior designer.  I can really identify with her design style.  I don’t think I have ever seen a room of hers that I did not like.   So, needless to say, I am a HUGE fan of her fabric line!  The fabrics offer some really rich textures, detailing & even a few very cool & very well done metallics.  I am thinking about using a few in my master bedroom.  There are so many great coordinates that it’s so hard to decide!  I’m really drawn to the black, white & sea blue color palettes.  The line features several in this palette.  One even has tiny pearls sewn into the fabric.  I could totally see that on a few accent pillows to make a bed super luxurious.

Check some of them out & let me know what you think.

Paint treatments that are all the Rage!

Today on Good Morning Texas we discussed new techniques in paint finishes for your home.  All of the gorgeous samples I used were provided by my good friends at Artifax.  We’ve worked with them for over 15 years & let me tell you …. they are incredible!  Kris Perry is a true artist & her work is just awe-inspiring.  Her husband James is a master at Venetian and other plaster techniques.

These techniques are not for the novice painter.  They are incredibly labor intensive!  The team at Artifax have spent years perfecting these techniques.  They are the crew to be copied!  Copying is the sincerest form of flattery, but do NOT try this at home yourself!  You will be thoroughly disappointed, not to mention exhausted.  This is one area where you definitely want to call in the professionals!
