High Point!

Alex and I went to the annual High Point Furniture Show in mid-October where, I am happy to report, the general mood was up, up,up!  There was a lot of new and exciting product and every one's spirits were as good as I have seen in several years-what a relief. One of the new events,new products and uplifting news was the introduction of BeeLine Home by Bunny Williams. Bunny was there signing her new Scrapbook For Living and visiting with all of us who were soaking in her beautiful and inspiring settings Here is an example of her use of blue with white as the accent color. This mirror I have seen her use before but now it available to all of us..it is very soft and pretty with a hint of the exotic
In this photo is another great mirror which I think could be used almost anywhere. I like the branch motif combined with the leather ottoman (notice the tray insert) and ikat pillows. It is this contrast of textures which adds richness. I would use this mirror in a farmhouse or a rustic setting with slightly dressy textures to contrast between the twiggy motif and the gold finish.
Here is another look from BeeLine Home and a quick snap of Bunny and me just before she signed my Scrapbook. Doesn't she look fabulous?.
Love her top.
Another showroom we loved again - not a first visit but an old favorite - was Somerset Bay. The only drawback to these pieces is that the wait can be long - as long as 18 weeks to arrive in the U.S. and than more time to ship domestically.I must say, however,that that is not so long for these special pieces - and they will be custom colored in a variety of delicious colors.

This blue and white painted chest would be so deliciously cool in a beach house with a painted floor(blue and white, of course and this white bed:

or...my favorite, this white faux bamboo four poster.
The last bed has a special feature in the tuck away trundle on wheels with a twin mattress. This would expand that guest room - give those spend the night parties an extra bunk - be fine for a grandchild or whatever. This was shown in a soft butter yellow - but can be,again any color from key lime green to red - oh, the possibilities

This bed is the best! It comes in many colors and in any size. At the last market it was featured in zesty green as twin beds with no rails at the top and paired with a navy chest - how divine for a boy or a guest room....add navy and white or green and white linens and you're just about done. Here the bed is shown in white. Panels could be added in the back or along the sides but the bed is dramatic enough to stand alone and classic enough to never tire of. Does it get any better?
