Nicki Pasqualone of Vitalic Photography + Giveaway Winner!











What a way to wrap up the week! This is a rare treat...one brought to us by Nicki Pasqualone - a professional photographer who holds an interior design license, whose dad (Randy Hines) is general contractor! Nicki recently finished enclosing her Florida porch into a sunroom (office, playroom, den) and I cannot get over how perfect it is (or how adorable her daughter is!) I just love how she took Urban Outfitter's ruffle shower curtain and stretched it around a blank canvas. Brilliant! The wall color is utterly perfect here too...it was a custom match (the label says CLRNT = 384th, B=76, C = 27, D = 124, if that means anything to you guys). Love the pillows...floral one made from Kravet Jellybean from Etsy shop LilyOnBlue and the green one featuring Schumacher's Betwixt in Water/Ivory made by LabDesigns on Etsy. The cute striped one is from TJ Maxx. (Nicki generously supplied me with a ton of sources, so if you are wondering about anything else, just ask away!)

And if you thought these images were pretty, you must take a visit to her site Vitalic Photography and her delectable blog where she and her photo partner Chrissy showcase some serious talent behind the lens. If you're lucky enough to live in Florida (or destination wedding, hello!) I can't think of anyone better to preserve your special memories!

Lane Venture







One of the things I'd love for our new home to have is a fabulous outdoor space. Thoughts of dining al fresco make me so happy! I couldn't help but daydream when I toured the showroom belonging to Lane Venture. I've admitted it before on here that I'm not a fan of wicker furniture...but what I saw completely changed my mind. I loved the smooth, modern silhouettes of their pieces. But my favorite thing was the HUGE selection of all-weather fabrics. And I must be living under a rock, but I had no idea there was slipcovered outdoor furniture (I adore slipcovers). The Elena Tub Dining Chairs were so "me"!

Ooh and you have to check out this non-turquoise stuff below...who knew outdoor furniture could be so cool??? (AND also available in many great turquoise fabrics!)




LOVED this party perfect Metropolitan Sofa above...sitting on the arms and back is no longer a no-no!



And seriously, how cool are these?? Pretty sure you'd be the only person on the block with one!

*sigh* I loved High Point Market. I never get to see this sort of stuff in my normal life!! :)

Karen Robertson Collection





Imagine the delight in discovering the Karen Robertson Collection at High Point Market! Seeing these breathtaking display of treasures immediately took my breath away. Talk about sophisticated, chic beachy art. The hand-tinted sea fans suspended in glass are incredible in person. Well really all of it is...I could have lingered for hours! Don't you love the fabric here? It's all from Karen's new fabric line available in the spring featuring nautical patterns and fabulous colors. Learn more about Karen's nature inspired designs here. And if you're interested in purchasing her artwork, Outer Banks Trading Group carries her line!

I found this booth the afternoon I arrived and sadly didn't have my nice camera with me, so the nice folks (who also blog!) sent me the great photos above to share with you guys. The ones below are what I took...so much to love, so much to love.

Drexel Heritage






Welcome to the wonderful world that is High Point Market! This set of photos I took was from my favorite space in the Drexel Heritage showroom. I seriously wanted to plunk down and call it home. Isn't the fresh mix of patterns and colors fantastic?? Drexel Heritage was actually one of the companies that sponsored my trip out there, so we got a really great tour of their fabulously styled showroom. (And I mean fab-u-lous!) I was not familiar with them beforehand, so I was like a sponge taking it all in. They are all about personalization, offering their customers a ton of great options with fabric, finishes and hardware. Take that gorgeous Stewart Poster Bed for example...it's available in 23 finishes, including two very pretty turquoisey ones! I don't know about you, but I'll take this room "as is"! I can't wait to show you more!


Edit: All the gorgeous rugs are from Feizy, from their SAPHIR CABO collection.
