seeking CLARITY in the new year........


acrylic pieces add a touch of modern, clean simplicity, and a hip factor (like being in with the cool kids,...) not to mention functionality (easy care)!

but what i like most about acrylic pieces is the statement-making see-thru-ness that allows the other furniture pieces to have their moment. ohhh,.... and it's perfect for small spaces--light and airy, no congestion! ohhh,... there's more-- it doesn't vie with your color scheme........ 

 has your mail box been stuffed with all the shiny new home catalogues yet? mine has, and acrylic pieces abound for the 2016,... even though the origin lies back to the past (1930)-- so that makes it a classic!

some affordable and accessible pieces from the mainstay design catalogues (hover over picts for links),..........

ballard design.........

...not at all competing with that-beauty-of-a-rug, yet still a wow piece in its own right!


pottery barn (branchin' out a bit, kind of a new look for them),........

...this drinks table is anchored with a gutsy black iron base, if you can't do the all-acrylic-thing, this is perfect! 

...too fun, love the citrusy, preppy pops of color! perfect at the end of a bed, or--

...a simple clean waterfall-edge side table 

west elm....

...this pendant is perfect if you don't want to obstruct your sight line & bonus points for the pretty reflection on your ceilings when lit at nite!

...for that new year organized and uncluttered feel in your home office, i strive!

trays trays trays, can't have enough on hand, ever!

...an interesting shelf


...love his console for a narrow entry, esp if you have abeautiful wall papered wall that you just don't want to hide (btw: saw the same console at HG just this week!)

...another interesting shelf, a ledge actually, lean your art work or photos on for maximum wow.

...for those sunday morning breakfasts in bed prepared by your loving partner (think valentine's day coming soon!)

wisteria (a unique home decor catalogue)....

...love love LOVE these ghost columns (and columns in general), great for showcasing a special object-- these would be super in front of & centered on a window!

...a functional storage trunk, stuff pretty pillows or throws inside or..., could also be used as a side table showcasing a few fab finds...rope handles add an organic touch to the modernity!

...these acrylic stools are just perfect in this narrow kitchen space and add to the somewhat contemporary feel!
seeking CLARITY is easy,..... WHY NOT RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH it?
