Bringing the outside inside

Recently, I was intrigued by a post from Apartment Therapy  that featured wall murals from various readers. I guess trees are a popular wall art trend right now and I was amazed at the different styles. Maybe one day, I can add Mural Artist to my list of titles. For more info on these murals, see Apartment Therapy.

One shade of gray.

Just added this gray 4-drawer chest to the sales floor. Thought about keeping this one for myself but decided to sell it instead. It has the original hardware..not sure of the age on it though.

I thought I would show off some of the quotable canvas artwork, magnets and candles that I carry in BlackLion. We could all use some motivation going into the new year...

Going for the green

I'm not a big fan of Pantone's color of the year, emerald green. However, I am starting to see it pop up everywhere. I am sure this fresh vibrant green color will eventually "grow" on me as we head into spring but right now I am still loving last year's tango tangerine color. I am also betting that green will be the dominating color at Atlanta's home market this weekend. While doing a little research on "emerald", I found a couple of green home decor examples that I thought I would share.
