getting into the daily grind

whew! life is so much better without all the self imposed drama. i forgot for awhile that i love what i do! i was taking life way too seriously.

just thought i’d share a couple samples that came in. these are glass beads that sparkle like crazy! it’s a really pretty wall covering (or anything for that matter) that’s made from crushed Murano glass. Colors are so vibrant and range from neutral to peridot to red!

they sent these below too, they’re like a mica, they sort of look like mother of pearl and are also fantastic on walls.

i’m still trying to get in touch with susie who designed this wallpaper below. i’m becoming obsessed with wall coverings.

these lights are little sculptures, some with a cute dark side! they’re by Amy at www.lionheartdesign.blogspot.com. She’s making some for the show with dollhouse furniture!

the jury’s still out on the flooring. of course i wanted to do marble tiles but everyone thinks that’s too ambitious/ridiculous. maybe. what do you think of these?

    I would love to see what the glass looks like on a wall. I can’t say that I am familiar with the material. Do you have pictures of it in use?

    Hi Jennifer,
    No, I haven’t see it up, but it’s stunning in person and I bet it looks great on curved walls and inside moldings. I’m trying to get a nice big sample for the show so we can all see it!

    Where on earth did you find that sparkly wallpaper? Do you think it would work for book coverings? I’d love to know the source if you don’t mind. :)

    I actually ordered a couple of area rugs from http://www.sisalrugs.com – they’ll cut it to order and apply the border of your choice, so you’re not stuck with standard sizes/colors. Beautiful stuff and very helpful folks there. Your glass wall covering looks spectacular! where did you find it?

    Hi there,

    I also adore that glittery wallpaper and all the lovely things you share on your blog. Thanks!

    I was reading my Parler Paris newsletter; there is a conference about living in France etc. in Miami this week. I wish I was there because I would go…just to get info…who knows where it could lead. Anyway, if you want to read about it: http://www.parlerparis.com/liveinfrance/LIF_Miami_AF_Feb_2008/index.html
    I hope you don’t mind me adding this to my comment.

    I’m so glad you all love the glass wallpaper! I’m selling it by the yard. (Sells for $250). It will be up on my site very soon. Guess I better get going on it! Thanks for the feedback! It will be front and center over a headboard at the show. The great thing about it is that you don’t have to do the whole wall. I’m showing it inside a wall moulding with a sconce on it for added sparkles.
