PinkPianos at NiceDwells

I think I’m going to love being a blogger over at NiceDwells, here’s a peak of what I wrote for them yesterday.

I’d like to share a few tips for bringing the outdoors INSIDE for Fall.

Use natural materials

Like this Driftwood coffee table. In this room, I see natural materials like stone, leather, driftwood, iron, and wool fibers have been incorporated into the living space.

Rain Shower

Relax into a tropical downpour each day with a rain shower. I love experiencing these on vacation in my hotel room, so why not bring one home? A rain shower is easy to install, you just need to right shower head.

Accessorize naturally.

DIY or buy accessories that remind you of nature.

I can be pretty ambitious and I’ve noticed that driftwood mirrors are really in. I’ve seen them everywhere from Etsy to Neiman Marcus and  this autumn I plan on sculpting my own.

Natural centerpieces

for entertaining are a must!  You can design them yourself by taking a nature walk and collecting leaves, branches, and pinecones, or you can go to the nearest florist and mix together an original bouquet. I like these beauties because they are all vivid and bright. I also like the vintage glass jars that I see being reused.

Art

This living wall by Flora Grubb serves as artwork and greenery at the same time. Plus, it is eco-friendly and takes little water to keep alive.

To Go

Or maybe you are like me, never home and always on the go, I have found the perfect natural accessory. This birch bark cuff is so clever! Each piece is handmade and no two pieces are the same due to the quality and texture of the bark. The smooth side is flush to your wrist leaving no itchy feelings. I don’t know about you all, but I’ll never look at bark quite the same!

How will you accessorize your home and entertain guests in this post Labor Day season?

100th post in Glossy black

Turns out my last post was lucky 100 and I missed it! I guess that I’d been anticipating it for so long the moment just escaped me. To commemorate this event I’d like to get back to the roots of this blog with a before and after reveal!

Behold the white coffee table, before any work was done.

Renewed with a slippery black sheen.

I buffed the tips of the legs gold and applied countless coats of black paint with a foam roller, all the while perfecting my smooth roll, I’m on a mission to accomplish. Then, I applied two wonderful coats of an oil based polyurethane gloss. That’s our living room, you see in the background.

I like how the table top really reflects the light and it’s modern feel too. You can see our new Vera pillow has found a home. Have you got any pics of updated furnishings you’d like to share? Send me a pic. I love to see your creativity.

Tonight, I’m off to Grand Performances to see Caravan Palace, a popular Parisian group…


more Metamorphosis pics Monday!
