Lets do some “Window Shopping”

When the time comes to consider what window covering products are best suited for your needs, the process may be overwhelming.

Determining what your individual needs are is the best place to start, whether it be privacy, light control, or simply decorative purposes. Manufacturers are offering a variety of products in fabric, woven horizontal and vertical shading systems, metal and wooden blinds, and motorized options.

2” wood blinds were the perfect solution for these elegant wood paneled walls.

It’s all in the details.

Fabric, trim and hardware build the perfect soft treatment by adding pattern, color or texture. This combination of silver metallic wooden poles, crystal finials, beaded trim, button detail, tiebacks and lush fabric produced a stunning custom window treatment scheme in this formal master bedroom.

A splash of color, pattern or texture on any window will add flavor to your room. Window treatments are like that perfect piece of jewelry to a favorite outfit, a room is just not complete without them.

Bright Ideas at LL&A

good year 2019

Just as we expected, 2019 started off in a rush and we would not expect anything less!

With the Holiday season behind us, we are now busy planning for 2019. Blessed with the many wonderful projects we currently have and the ones on the horizon, we are constantly in search of new ideas, systems, products and logistics that will enable us to grow and mature our business.

Leslie and Tammy recently attended the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market and discovered several new finds they are bringing back to Jeffersonville!

Check out what is coming soon to The Shop!

 

Bloomr

Fine, sophisticated, tasteful and elegant faux florals & stems that are all designed and created by professional florists. A space without flowers or plants is an empty space, let them breathe air into your home or office.

 

Studio Penny Lane

For those of us that always pick that penny up off the sidewalk…

Studio Penny Lane was created to bring awareness to and inspire a daily practice of gratitude and cultivate mindfulness in the world. One penny at a time.

 

Canoe Custom Made Jewelry & Handbags

Hand crafted in Blue Ridge, Georgia, their unique collection of jewelry and bags effortlessly combine rustic charm with contemporary sophistication. We loved the combination of fine leather, hides and chain bags with their unique wood, stone and hide jewelry.

 

True South Puzzles

Who doesn’t love a great jigsaw puzzle? They’re great for solo therapy sessions or family night with some pizza and a movie! We were thrilled to find these terrific puzzles created by artists focusing on our treasured national parks, scenic routes across the south, southern cities & states and most of all… our sweet animal friends! Once assembled, frame them up and hang on display!

Watch for more details on these products and many more once they arrive at The Shop!

How to “shelf a book” & an accessory or two!

We believe bookshelves are the window into our family life and tell the story of who we are. Many of us have either built in bookshelves, wall shelves, or furniture pieces with shelving and have a difficult time accessorizing them in an effective way.  Showcasing our collections of treasures, family photos and books can be a tricky task and end up looking like an afterthought instead of a prized feature of a room.

Let us share with you a few helpful tools to turn your wall of shelves into a wall of storytelling…

Edit

Edit out all items that no longer serve a purpose or speak to you.  Remove old greeneries, tiny objects, and tired outdated pieces.

LL&A Office Design

Scale

Our rule of thumb is nothing smaller than a cantaloupe belongs on a shelf.  Combining large scale accessories with frames, books and treasured collections will provide a clean tidy appearance and also highlight features items.

Color palette

In order to achieve a cohesive easy “read”, select an accent color and stick to one.  From there, add a greenery source to give an organic element and texture, then photos, books and accessories.  For example, if you want a fresh beach look, try blue accessories combined with brown books and wooden photo frames – clean, easy and fresh!  If you prefer a monochromatic look, maintain a greenery source to let the accessories breathe.

Books

Yes, bookshelves deserve BOOKS! Even if you are not a reader, add books! Local libraries have book sales at least two times a month and is great fun collecting sets and color combinations. Remember, paperbacks do not count, only hardbacks (no cheating). Measure your shelves and buy more than what you think you need. Trust us, the shelves will eat books up! Select a color scheme and buy books within that range. Consider blacks and grays or browns and tan. You may even like blues if that is your look – go for it! If you own an assortment of mismatched books already – no problem, turn them around and show the page side! TaDa!

Family photos

Bring it on! Here is your chance to create the story wall. Combine your favorites and select frames that compliment your accessories.  You can choose to either use color photos, sepia or black and white. Again, all depending on the look you desire to achieve.  Keep all frames simple and of similar appearance in color and texture.

Accessories

Your accessories will tie your entire look together. They should all compliment your valued treasures and collectibles that tell a story all their own.  Keep accessories in one color palette with clean lines and scaled appropriately.  Mixing ceramics, glass, and pottery are all terrific ways to add texture. Just keep within the same color range.  Adding baskets in neutral tones that compliment your scheme adds great texture and scale.

 

Side tips:

  • White items on white book shelves do not showcase well.
  • Glass items will not show up unless filled with greens, spheres, nuts, rock, etc.
  • Move small objects onto smaller side tables or with cabinets.
  • Play with shapes. Less is more!
  • Don’t be afraid to paint your bookshelves a different color or add a textural wallcovering to the back wall.  This may be the perfect addition to draw attention to your feature.

Now take these hints and tips as you begin your own journey in creating the perfect bookshelf display! Have fun and enjoy!

Until next time,
