Design bits and pieces!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments regarding my one room challenge breakfast room. If you have no idea what I'm referring to you can go here.
So the other day I walked into a client's house and in her garage I spy this.

Ballard Designs
Now I have seen these in entries and mudrooms but in the garage?Genius!

It's perfect for all of us who don't have a functional mudroom but have a garage that leads into your home --- you can buy this one from Ballard Designs and place in your garage and catch all sporting equipment, heavy coats, muddy shoes and smelly cleat's before they enter your home.

Hot for Hardware?
I am!

I'm using this version on built-ins with antique-mirrored backed shelves ... can you even stand it?


Yep, it's Sweater Weather

Even a sofa or chair needs a cozy warm sweater ...

Did you notice a theme?
Did you pick up on what I was puttin' down?

Would you like to add just a touch of modern to your room without breaking the bank? Are you afraid to commit to this trendy look? Yep, me too.

Keeping that in mind, here's a roundup of reasonably priced peekaboo furniture pieces that you can add to your teens room,  traditional dining room/living room or stodgy old desk to make it a bit more funky get-down:)

Did you see in some pics above even just one piece of this furniture makes a HUGE impact:)

Advantages to ghost-like furniture

1) Pretty indestructible
2) Goes with every color scheme and can be used in every room
3) Can take your room from stodgy to funky in a matter of minutes

What do you think?? LOVE or just too trendy?
I'm kinda digging it ... you?
