High Point Highlights and New Blues in the Shop

  Hi all!  I made a super quick trip to High Point for the furniture and accessories show.  I couldn't bare to miss it, even if I was only able to go for a day and a half.  I can never stay away!

This image is from my absolute favorite room at Wesley Hall...

The trends I saw included a continuation of fresh, clean colors, but with some earth tones mixed in, particularly in butterscotch (a fave of mine) and darker greens, going to olive.  Here are random shots of things that caught my eye...

Leather and lucite bench?  Yes please!

Painted wood tile flooring -- to die for.

I always stop to stare at botanicals, and a rabbit always gets me, too...

This tray is petrified wood.  How I would love this in my house...

Speaking of wood, this live edge coffee table had my thumbs up...

Good chairs always make my heart race.  Perhaps sad, but true! ;-)

This ghost chair knocked my socks off...

The mix of textures and styles in this setting really appealed...

I think one of the coolest things this market was these coffee and end tables, done in a custom Pantone combination (you can pick any three colors you want),  and sealed with an almost indestructible finish.  I would mix these in any traditional setting...

I could have stayed in High Point all week, but not doable this time around.  But a bit of time is better than none.  Personally, I think it's critical in this industry to see and feel what's new and next. 

And for new and next, I want to show you two items I'm loving in the shop.  A stunning blue and white, coral and seashell motif soap dish, and cobalt blue majolica in the cabbage pattern.  There is a limited quantity of each, so don't wait, my blue and white peeps!!

Shop it at 6 Wilson

Find it at 6 Wilson

Hope you are having a great start to the week!!  Thanks for stopping by,


The Love for Blue in Design and a Coupon

  I never cease to be amazed that my 6 Wilson shop stats consistently tell me that my customers love blue pillows.  Every shade of blue, every style, whether it is mixed with white or other colors.  I believe that in design, blue is the most decorated-with hue, and there's no wonder why.  It's just plain pretty.

In keeping with the blues, I added some new pillows to 6 Wilson.  There's some traditional, a bit of elegance, some French Country, and a dash of modern, too. 

There's so much blue in the shop right now, and most all of it is done in high end, designer fabrics.  Many of them are only available through designers.  I am a firm believer in having things in your home, like pillows ;-),  that reflect your style, and not every neighbor on your street.

And if you'd like a chance to win a pillow cover of your choice, hop on over to The Enchanted Home and visit Tina (who's love of blue and white is hard to top).  She's hosting a 6 Wilson giveaway, and there's a 20% off COUPON you can use.  Just sharin' the love!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend, friends!!


A House for Sale and Other Stuff

  Wow, it's been a while.  The late spring and summer months have taken me way off course with a 5 month house guest (a family member on a job search), another family member in hospice, work on a new venture, and fitting life, clients and other work in between.  I'm not ready to come back to blogging yet, or execute some 6 Wilson plans, but I wanted to share a home that totally blows me away.

If you've been a Vignette Design blog reader for any length of time (I've been reading for years), you've probably already loved this home.    Delores just posted the real estate pictures taken for the sale of her house, and they are a must see if you like traditional/French Country design.   Pop over to her blog to see them all.  You are sure to be inspired.  (Photos here are from her blog).

This is a home with gorgeous bones, and gorgeous landscaping.  Maybe it's on your shopping list?
