HG Letters on Food Network

HGTV Designer Taniya Nayak is using HG sign letters for a show she has done for The Food Network. She spruces up a barbeque restaurant's decor by the name of "Rascals" and uses the cool letters on a wall in the restaurant. She liked the unique, collected feel of the letters for a casual eatery. I met Taniya at the Country Living Fair in Columbus last September and she bought a big, yellow "N" for herself and liked it so much she thought of HG for the show. The show is set to air on The Food Network, February 2 at 10pm EST. Check it out!

shelves, shelves, and MORE shelves

My friend Cassie just recently moved into a new house that had the MOST shelf space I think I had ever seen. The shelves are in an unusual placement at the top of her stairs, which you can see from her foyer as soon as you enter the house, so the shelves had to be a show stopper. They run from floor to ceiling and are 7 feet high. Cassie was overwhelmed at the idea of filling the shelves and contemplated painting them. I must admit this was quite a challenge, but once we dove in, we really had a great time shopping for new and vintage items and found really unique fillers that fit Cassie's personal tastes and her decor. These pictures are before (below) and after (top) and I am so pleased with the result!

DIY chevron curtains

I STILL love Chevron... I came across these DIY curtains on CasaSugar blog. A woman bought Ikea curtains and used a 4" roller and black fabric paint to do these. What a great idea and a great room!
