Summer will soon be gone, but there is still time to enjoy your back deck. Pour yourself some cold lemonade or sweet iced tea and soak up the rays in your outdoor space. Add a few colorful touches to your deck area like some bright, patterned pillows on a bench or festive patio umbrellas and you’ve got an instant party atmosphere. Perhaps those lime green and teal blue umbrellas are now on sale? With nice weather through September you will still get plenty of use out of them.

Do your French doors or windows need a new look? At Celia Barrett Design, we have used a “Hobble” shade when dressing French doors to create a classic style. “Hobble” shades have pleats all the way down, even when closed. To make the look unique, we like to have the pleats made extra-large. The pleats shown in the attached photo are 8-10 inches. Adding a soft ball tassel trim at the base of the shade gives it a custom look. Shade designed by Celia Barrett and created by Bonnie Harrell in the Celia Barrett Design custom workroom.

I do love this room. I love the furniture, the custom hand-made tile around the fireplace, the Art Deco chairs, many details. I just have no time now, but will talk about it more soon. I love the white washed horizontal wood paneling, my custom designed consoles for each side of the fireplace…….. I WILL do more detailed information later.

Just to through it in, these are really neat. Yes, it looks like chicken wire with glass! I love the other two also. Looks like old, blown glass. And the “old look” light bulbs are about as new and hot as can be. Has a soft elegance about it, doesn’t it. Thomas Edison would be proud.
Yes, SNAKES! The latest and hottest look for your interiors is a snake-skin print. Whether it is vinyl, wool, or the real think(ugh), the look of a snake is it. And guess what. I like it…..a lot….. It can be so beautiful and so elegant.
And crocodile skin….also Yiks!
But so very elegant and rough at the same time. We are using this one in a hotel lobby in Austin, Texas. It will be perfect. It has just a subtle reference to an upscale cowboy boot. and look at these colors and texture. Can’t beat it.
You can add just a throw pillow and it will give you an updated look. Very nice.
