Kyle went to Eatmans to survey the job I went to see VanCollier custom made Eatmans Bar Stool!
I was blown away it was twisted steal that created Sex Appeal (<stole his line )!
I ran my hand across the sexy navy top with a slightly bumpy texture and exclaimed
I love Faux Stingray
It also comes like this:
So further down the road I’m at High Point Furniture market ; the Furniture capital of the world and guess what Trend forecast I made last year is taking off :Stingray
There is just one problem here; did you read What’s Kale Got to Do with it… cuz I think we have a title theme happening .You didn’t read it but after you finish this one you will!
Fuchsia, itchy grey, Stingray
I was singing it like the wizard of oz! HG would just giggle and let me be me❤️love that girl !
When I returned home from Furniture Market I began reaching out to companies for images. Proper titles of things; dimensions, descriptions. It’s amazing how nice people are to tiny little blogger like me!
I must say the most gracious of all of the companies was Marlene at Made Goods. I asked for some images of their Faux Stingray vanity and side tables! She was kind enough to send me a link to their
Though Stingray and Shagreen are in a similar family
Shagreen is a type of rawhide consisting of rough untanned skin, formerly made from a horse’s back or that of an onager (wild ass). Shagreen is now commonly made of the skins of sharks and rays.
The word derives from the French chagrin and is related to Italian zigrino and Venetian sagrin, derived from the Turkic sağrı / çağrı ‘rump of a horse’ or the prepared skin of this part. The roughness of its texture led to the French meaning of anxiety, vexation, embarrassment, or annoyance.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shagreen Wiki
In order to sound like you actually know what you’re talking about… it’s best to kind of know what your talking about!
I’m a novice and honestly probably have no business writing a furnishings blog… but this is a lifestyle blog with a furnishings section so! Let me be silly and learn from my mistakes! There will be plenty more
It was a pretty Grey day Sunday in High Point , the kind of date your just want to stay in bed!This was my 9th trip to high Point furniture market .It’s a bi annual show for all things home; furniture, art, carpet, and lighting. People come from all over the world to see what’s new in the world of Interiors design. I’ve tried convincing many of my Interior design friends that one of my gifts is forecasting the trends that will take off in the real world ( not Just Dwell Magazine) and be profitable. Just one problem with this type of gift, the results are delayed . So you are now reading a blog in the future; If you are reading this blog Spring of 2017 you have two choices you can read it and let it influence your future home choices so you can say
I did it first !
You can also just put this link in your book marks for a year and send me some feedback next year.
Now for the Forecasts
Interior design has become a much more hands on approach for the consumer. Since we now have the ability to decorate our own home “expertly” with the help of the Internet and Pinterest … we have a much higher margin of error. So we aren’t doing full room makeovers ,we are investing in one piece at a time.
Fuchsia is so bright,gotta wear shades of pink
Ottomans, Rugs , pillows , art, and side boards.
For the softer souls with higher budgets there are blush sofas and Chez even light pink Vanity.
If you’re the kind of person who needs to dip their toe in slowly; table top boxes are the perfect way to break into a trend. Shagreen (WTF is that) , tortoise , polished stone and wood canal add a dramatic flair to any room.
In comedy the joke is only funny if there is a straight man. The straight man in this situation is grey and it’s kind of itchy.
Light and dark but full of slightly uncomfortable textures to touch but very visually pleasing!
I hope my Trend Forcast for 2018 can help you change your interiors one piece at a time.
I’ve started this Blog 100 times, 100 ways
I’m being bullied
I can’t stand up for myself
I’m lost and confused
I’m not in High School, I’m not in a sorority. I am a grown women being bullied by another grown women.
Courage The heart of our Core Values, courage is the mental, moral, and physical strength ingrained in Marines that sees them through the challenges of combat and the mastery of fear, and to do what is right, to adhere to a higher standard of personal conduct, to lead by example, and to make tough decisions under stress and pressure. It is the inner strength that enables a Marine to take that extra step.
I was raised by a Marine with these Values.
I have always tried to adhere to a higher standard, and it is my personal goal on a daily basis to be able to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. I’m the one who can’t stand up in this situation.
Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. StopBullying.gov
The hardest thing for me in this situation is I’m the one being excluded. I’m the one who’s mental health is being compromised, the worst part is it’s a women. It’s a silent killer and I need to speak up, but I am so scared. The intimidation is real. This is my first step. I will not live afraid any more ,and I will not keep it a secret. I am standing up for my self , but also as an example for my son.
Don’t live in silence
