Why Your Vacation Rental Needs a Sleeper Sofa

When you’re furnishing a home for your vacation rental, beach house or Airbnb, there are a lot of things to consider. Most people furnish their main residence over time, adding furniture as they have need. Second homes often need to be furnished all at once, and owners wonder how they can get the most out of their investment. A vacation rental sleeper sofa will save space, add visual appeal and give more guests a comfortable place to sleep.

To Market, to Market…..

I got talked into attending the furniture market with my family in Las Vegas last week for the Las Vegas Market Expo.  I used to enjoy the market—I’d go from showroom to showroom, getting ideas for decorating my own home and—oh, yes—looking for manufacturers whose lineup might work well in our store.  Sometimes we’d go as a family, a few times I went alone.

Remember how your mother told you never to touch broken glass?

Russ Morgan plays with broken glass for a living.

I came across Russ’s creations several years ago at Capers, in West Seattle, and knew I needed one, or maybe many, of his chandeliers for my home. It might be an exaggeration to say that I realized I needed one of his glass light fixtures hanging in each room. But not by much.

My most recent Russ Morgan purchase was triggered by a home decor emergency. The (more…)

Find Beauty and Function at the Art Fair

I try to remember the famous William Morris quote, “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” Works for me! The trouble is, I find so many beautiful things and I want them all. We just don’t have a big enough house. That is why when I visit the art fair each year I limit myself to buying just one item.  “Beauty and function,” I tell myself.  “Don’t get distracted by colorful doodads that will clutter up the house.”  Unfortunately, I’m not good at (more…)

A Collector’s Best Tips for Curating and Displaying Art

How to Collect and Display Art

One of the topics people have asked me to blog about is displaying art in the home.

I have no idea why they are asking ME. My wall decor consists of: things my kids have drawn, photographs I have taken, and posters from favorite art exhibits. All tastefully framed, of course. Well, most are tastefully framed. OK I admit that some are hung with that sticky stuff from the hardware store.

Maybe it’s time for some interior design electro-shock therapy at my house.
