Floor to Ceiling Gallery Walls

i love floor to ceiling gallery walls! i think they can create height in rooms that have lower ceilings and also bring a lot of interest to a room. using art and personal photos are great options and combining the two is another great option. below are some very inspiring wall collections and if you are interested in receiving some assistance in putting one together in your home, email me. i would love to help!

Design Spree of New Jersey!

If you take big box stores out of the equation like Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, Raymour and Flannigan, Ethan Allen and Macy's, there are not many furniture stores for individuals to look at, sit in and feel the furniture they are considering buying. There are always small boutique shops that have one to six larger pieces of certain furniture lines but more often than not, if you like something online from Oly or Century, it is really hard to find them in person. So during one of my many excursions, I found two great options for furniture buyers in the tri-state area! Design Spree is an amazing warehouse in Maywood and Lawrenceville NJ that is huge and prices that you can't beat. The tags have the manufacturer's price, Design Spree's price and you automatically get another 20% off. You buy right off the floor and the inventory is always changing. I hope you get a chance to check this place out and I hope I am living up to my goal of providing you with great local resources!

"We work closely with premium furniture manufacturers, both domestic and abroad, to bring exceptional pieces to our showrooms. Because of our buying power with manufacturers and our low overhead structure, we are able to offer these exquisite selections at prices 40%-60% less than retail. Come experience the splendor of collections by Henredon, Century, John Richards, Maitland-Smith, Theodore Alexander, American Drew and many, many more."

Updates Around My Place!

I realized that I haven't shared a couple of small updates around here......I am always on the hunt for specific furniture pieces that are beautiful and practical at the same time. Living in a smaller home always makes you think of these things ha! I was at one of my favorite little antique shops The Tomatoe Factory in Hopewell, NJ, looking for something else and came across this beauty. I could not get enough of the beautiful wood grain and finish. The aged brass details made this a show stopper for me. Here it is!

What I love about it is that opens up for almost a 4' console/serving table and I just used it last weekend for drinks and appetizers for a dinner party we had, it worked out great!

I also really needed a smaller scale cocktail table for my living room. I have been very patient trying to find just the right table in style and size. Our living room is smaller so I did not want to make the same mistake I have made in the past and get something that is too large that overpowers the room and interrupts the flow of the space. This piece recently came out and I loved the marble top and hammered gold base. I purchased it from High Fashion Home, a great online website. You need to stop by!

Finally last but NOT least, I picked up a couple of paintings from a local favorite artist in Stockton, NJ. I love his use of color and that his subjects are all local spots around Hunterdon and Bucks Counties. I been wanting a piece for a while and love them so much! Not sure where they are going to find a home yet around here but when they do I will do I will share!

Anyway, just a few updates that I have going on, any in your home? Please share them with me, I would love to see! Have a great day my readers!
