Pine Cone Pendent

Since tomorrow is the first day of fall, I thought this pine cone pendant would get us all into the fall spirit.

The pendent is made by Pavel Eekra who is a Russian designer. This extraordinary light consists of 56 plates and screws. It doesn't have an internal skeleton so that the light casts shadows off of the individual plates.

Glass Kitchen Countertop

This recycled countertop is elegant and reminds me how beautiful leftovers can be. You can completely customize you countertops and backsplashes by choosing different thicknesses, textures, colors, edge treatments etc.
Another application the manufacturer offers is an ‘artistic application.’ You can choose to add other colors to the clear glass to create one-of-a-kind designs.

According to Elle Decor, these are some of the latest trends in interior design.

Metallic leather seating: I've got to say, I'm really into this right now. Just make sure you use metallic leather as an accent - you don't want to have too much of a good thing in your space.

Statement dining tables: Designers are bringing attention to dining tables. If your table is a bit boring, think about accessorizing it with a large centerpiece to jazz it up.


Reuse and recycle: This has been a hot trend for years now and it will probably be popular for years to come. Think about what you can use/convert into something unique and imaginative.

Come take a look at this gorgeous design yourself, it hangs in the Chet Pourciau Design showroom!

The Art of Living


Friday, September 9, 2011

This relaxing image of an English countryside living space is the perfect example of how lanterns can be used as an accent and bring in visual interest.

If you wanted something a little more funky, you could use these Pressick Lanterns. They come in a variety of colors and when grouped together, they create are a fun mood to a room.

I love the traditional look of these woven lanterns they give off a rustic/Tuscan vibe. If you do not like to burn candles in your home because of children and pets, you can always use a battery powered candle. They give off the same glow, without the worry.


This hanging metal star lantern is unusually pleasant, this would look really good grouped together with other stars or other lantern shapes.

Some inspirational pieces by Boca do Lobo

I was looking at some very artistic and inspirational cabinets today. They are made by Boca do Lobo which is a Portuguese company. These amazing cabinets all fully functional and are definitely a show stopper.

If you are looking into buying a new bedroom set, don't go all matchy matchy. A well designed room has furniture that inspires you, it dose not have furniture that looks like it came out of the same furniture catalog. Try experimenting with unusual nightstands. I bet you will end up loving them!

Would you rather have a bedroom set that all matched or one that was unique and true to you?

Clear Light Switch Plates

I love going into well designed homes, especially when every single design detail is taken care of. But there is usually one detail that seems to be forgotten. Light switches and outlets seem to litter the walls of some homes, too many can be so unappealing and a huge eye sore. One way to avoid this is by using these clear light switch plates by Forbes & Lomax. This is a great solution to such a simple problem.
