We’re ready for Fondren Unwrapped tomorrow night!
Marty and the guys spent the day yesterday sprucing up our booth at Interiors Market in Fondren to get it holiday-ready for Fondren Unwrapped, a big kickoff to the holiday season and one of the biggest events of the year in the Fondren district of Jackson!

Be sure to stop by and look for our booth. Walk in the front door, take a right, and you’ve found it! Look for the green velvet furniture and lit up snowflakes hanging from the ceiling! We’ll, of course, have beautiful furniture and accessories, but we’ve got tons of gift items too!

{ happy valentine’s day }

FEBRUARY
2012

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! We love this holiday because someone usually brings cupcakes and/or candy, someone usually brings elementary school Valentine’s cards (which take us back to the good ol’ days), and someone usually gets flowers from a sweet boyfriend/husband (which we all can enjoy!)

Another reason we love this holiday is because we’re reminded of just how beautiful and versatile pinks, corals, and reds can be! We picked a few Schumacher fabrics (from many collections) showcasing just why we love the colors of love.

{ happy valentine’s day }-2 { happy valentine’s day }-3 { happy valentine’s day }-6 { happy valentine’s day }-1 { happy valentine’s day }-5 { happy valentine’s day }-4 { happy valentine’s day }-7 { happy valentine’s day }-8

Enjoy today!
Tell someone you love them!
And do something nice for someone!
That’s a sure-fire way to make your Valentine’s Day the best possible! Oh, and when you get blue, just re-visit this post for a little happiness and warmth from these pretty fabrics! 🙂

Decorating for a Cause

24
DECEMBER
2011

On Sunday, December 11th, Reunion (a neighborhood in Madison) hosted their annual Tour of Homes where people could buy tickets to view five beautiful homes all decorated for Christmas. This is something Reunion does each year to help raise money for various area charities chosen by the homeowners. We had the pleasure this year of helping one of our favorite families get their home ready for the tour. The charity this family chose to help was the Mississippi Children’s Museum. Take a look at their beautiful home, made even more beautiful with a little help from Marty and Melanie!

Lisa has helped this wonderful family with their home for years and years and has done a beautiful job, don’t you think?! The last two photos are of the most recently completed bedroom belonging to the family’s youngest daughter. It turned out so nicely!

*Thanks to our friend Rachel Kabukala for all of her gorgeous photographs!*

We hope you’re having a lovely holiday season so far! Can you believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve?!
