In With The New!

Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday January 15th 2010 as we present "In with the new"
The New Year comes in, bringing with it permission to try new things that you hadn’t considered before. Or perhaps this is the year for something you’ve always wanted to try but hadn’t quite dared. You can give your entire home a New Year makeover, make some changes in a favorite room, or just add new touches to a special corner.

Perhaps cottage chic is the look you wanted to try. You can combine floral patterns with checks and ticking, in colors ranging from bright hues to muted tones. Top comfortable overstuffed couches with beautifully handmade pillows and hang bright artwork on the walls. You can set an inviting table set with charming vintage plates, a vintage buffet in the corner to display your favorite collections.
Maybe you’ve been thinking about adding a rustic look of French Farmhouse to a large room or to a cozy nook. You can make this change by adding painted furniture. White or cream dressers and shelves, maybe a table top decoupaged with French-style wrapping paper would make the perfect accent piece. The key is to add small touches that make it unique. White pottery canisters, pitchers and urns are perfect for holding utensils and flowers on a counter or table top to complete the look.

Shabby chic celebrates the simple life and the comforts of home. Pastel greens, pale pinks, sky blues, muted grays, mixed together with all shades of white. Previously owned and well-loved items that have been handed down through generations are abound. Vintage wicker baskets, wrought iron candle holders, interesting lamps, they all combine to create a feeling of home and the comfort of time.

Give yourself permission to try something different, and celebrate the new year with a new d├ęcor. You’ll find everything that you need at Forget Me Not Dreams and the Boutiques of Make Mine Pink.
