Seashells by the Seashore: February Giveaway

Natural, Nautical, and almost ORganic

The winner must live in the US and if out of state we will mail the accessories to you.
There is a design trend, or shall I say movement, referred to as "Vintage Revamped".  I have heard that "Today’s consumer has a nostalgic affinity for treasured pieces that remind them of the past…
but they do not want their homes to look like a museum. "
Sea bottles with various toppers-shells, coral, old chandelier crystals, make great accessories. We get something that is not only beautiful but one of a kind. Like us, of course. :)
Natural, Nautical, and almost Organic. Whats not to love?

These two lovelies came from a boutique in Falmouth, Maine.  I will be giving them away when Fiore's facebook page hits 400 fans.

TREND REPORT-Or is it? Wallpapered Ceilings.

I believer in using wallpaper sparingly and with a purpose.
I hear buzz about this "trend"...wallpapering the ceiling only.
I love this room.
BUT I don't agree it is a new trend.

Mary Poppins circa 1964...that's damask wallpaer on the ceiling!

Elsie De Wolfe in the 1940's

Below are other great examples of using wall paper on a ceiling only, and remember A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY! :)

If wallpaper is something you are interested in but could use guidance, feel free to contact Fiore Interiors for a free intial consultation.

Old Hollywood Glamour-The home of Dita Von Teese

I encourage you to head over to InStyle to see the photos in all their glory.
Lee Jofa Wall paper. Silk everywhere. How appropriate!

to enlarge them images, simply click on them.

I enjoy seeing a home that is both a complete departure from everyday life AND a reflection of its owner.
