Kristin Drohan Collection ~ Chip Chesterfield

I love this sofa! Kristin took a classic and turned it into a fantastic look for today. That's what I mean, she has a traditional start and then adds just the right spin to add interest. Each piece as eco-friendly as the next. No compromises. What's happening?! Why have I been featuring Kristin all these days? You'll find out in the next couple of days I promise!

Kristin Drohan Collection ~ Lois Chaise

Ok, so here we have the Lois Chaise. One of the most comfortable chaise I have ever sat in. It supports my back and has real arms! You know what I mean about chaises with wanna-be arms for appearance that aren't comfortable or functional. Kristin had this one in her master bedroom when she lived my way. Throw a lovely pillow on it and its a show stopper. Can you tell I'm leading up to something?

Kristin Drohan Collection ~ Anthony Ottoman

C'mon! It doesn't get any better when we are talking about sophisticated ottomans. Did you know that Kristin's furniture is completely customizable? It is. She can even have renderings produced for you designers out there with your fabric on it to show your clients. Not tacky renderings either. Something that really coveys what it will look like. That's a nice feature don't you think?

Kristin Drohan Collection ~ Erin Sofa

How about this sophisticated little number? The Erin Sofa. Clean and classic. Did you know that Kristin names her one of her pieces after a person? An actual person close to her. That's how personal her creations are to her.

Kristin Drohan Collection

Have you heard about the eco-friendly, high style Kristin Drohan Collection? If yes, you're in the know. If no, you will. Kristin is actually a friend of mine but that's not why I writing this post. Kristin's furniture fills a niche ~ the eco-friendly, durable, and stylish niche. Kristin, after having done many homes with children and pets who also wanted to be eco-friendly, noticed a lack of product in the marketplace. Sure there is eco-friendly not so much in a transitional ~ traditional realm. And not in a price conscious manner. Kristin got to work. She researched, sourced, researched some more, designed, designed, designed and viola ~ the Kristin Drohan Collection was born. Kristin continually researches, sources, and designs. Her work is never done. I believe her product line is about to explode. Is it widely known yet? No... but it will be in the next couple of weeks. So, I wanted to share my favorite pieces with you and the care and pride she takes with her line. It is really amazing. For the next few days I'll be featuring her creations. Do you like the one featured up top? I used these bar stools in a design and they just gorgeous. I'll get that project photographed soon and show you what I mean. Today I'm featuring a video of Kristin speaking about some very wonderful and interesting features of her furniture.

Dobie Gray

I'm writing this post as I watch the Grammy's. Jennifer Hudson just sang Whitney Houston's most famous song. I always watch the portion of the show intently when they say all that were lost. Dobie Gray was one of them. I have two favorite songs of all time. His rendition is one of them. In tribute to Dobie...

Thanks for the joy that you've given me.

Accessorize this Room...

Salon with Custom Plaster Ceiling traditional living room

A couple of days ago, I posted this room by dSPACE compliments of Houzz and asked if you like the ceiling. Between here and Facebook, folks in general, liked the ceiling. A point made was the room could become busy when fully accessorized. I agree so I did a brief search of accessories given my thoughts on what would be lovely in the space.

Here's my thinking ~ keep the room simple. Add white, textured, architectural groupings to the shelving similar to these...

The white color and form of each piece would pop off the gray. For a splash of color on the cocktail table...

a deep red charger. And for the side table...

the same color as the charger. The accessories compliments of Global Views.

I didn't venture into pillows and art. I just pulled the ones above out of thin air really based on form, texture, and color. It would be wonderful if the homeowner had a collection of something simple to display. But for a design exercise, I love the simplicity of the accessories above.

How would you accessorize in this room?

I like this ceiling a lot. The whole design really. I enjoy the complexity of the ceiling with the simplicity of the furnishings below. I would love to see it fully accessorized. I found this a Houzz by dSPACE Studio. What do you think? Is the ceiling a classic or a trend?
