The Beauty of Hand Painted Wallpaper

In previous years homeowners and designers have shied away from using wallpaper given the rumors floating around of them not being in style. The notion of wallpaper not being in style couldn't be any further from the truth. Today's selection of wallpapers is more diverse and creative than ever. Take hand painted wallpaper for example. Hand painted wallpaper is the epitome of having a unique interior design. The utmost thought and precision flow through each yard and no two designs are exactly alike whether in the same collection or not. One of our favorite vendors of hand painted wallpaper is de Gournay. With each of their wallpaper designs de Gournay strives to produce a happy, vibrant and peaceful environment in your home that you will forever appreciate and admire. Their beautiful designs were recently featured on the good bones, great pieces blog by mother and daughter team Suzanne and Lauren McGrath who love wallpaper's ability to transform a room. Take a look the beauty of hand painted wallpaper...

Using Floor Runners in Other Rooms

Have you ever been flipping through a home magazine and wished you could recreate the exact same thing in your home, or something similar? Well you can! While flipping through this month's issue of House Beautiful we came across the article "Floor Runners for Every Room". The article displayed 10 modern rugs that don't have to be confined only to the hallway because they are runners, but are perfect for bathrooms, bedrooms, or even the kitchen. One of the chosen rugs was the Chloe Rug by Company C. Here at DesignSourceCT we are the exclusive Lifestyle Program dealer for Company C in Connecticut. The Chloe rug features a design of large-scale Art Nouveau flowers repeated in an allover damask-like pattern available in pewter or copper. The hand-tufted wool and viscose runner also features shimmering rayon yarn, which gives it a subtle burnished metallic patina, for a sophisticated, modern effect. The runner is sized 2'6" x 8" but available in other sizes to be used as rugs. To inquire further about the Chloe Rug call or visit DesignSourceCT!

Floral Fabric Interpretation Display by Ruth Loiseau

What do you get when a master floral designer comes across a beautiful and inspiring piece of fabric? An intricate, over-sized silk flower interpretation by Connecticut based floral designer Ruth Loiseau of Ruth L Designs in Suffield. In addition to providing her services for clients throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, Loiseau is an Art of Floral Design lecturer. She has also shared her talents with various presidential administrations and is currently employed by the White House Flower Shop for special events for the Obama Administration. The inspiring fabric Loiseau chose for her interpretation was from none other than a DesignSourceCT favorite, Lee Jofa. Specifically, the fabric is Lee Jofa Dotted Pleat in Wedgewood 2010107-5 from the Oscar de la Renta Home collection; which is available through interior designers at DesignSourceCT. Take a look at Loiseau's work that was on display in our showroom and a swatch of the actual fabric...
