Decorating Ideas, Unusual Home Goods and Decor Gifts
|We shop all over the world to find home decor and gifts for you but you can probably tell from our home page that we especially love British goods. Among our popular British gifts there are many items inspired by British WWII Keep Calm and Carry On posters, Union Jack Flags and lots more. |
You can read about the Keep Calm WWII poster in our What is Keep Calm and Carry On From section. Historic stories about the self confident ways of Eleanor Roosevelt and the visiting Queen Elizabeth I, speak to the importance of home entertaining in building friendships and even managing world affairs.
Decor Accessories White House
|Jackie Kennedy knew this. When she moved into the White House, she was conscious to focus on American decorative accents and accessories. The patrician decorator Sister Parish helped her as did others. One thing all the great American decorators have had was ingenuity. Sister knew that you don't have to throw out your old sofa, couch or curtains and buy everything new when you start decorating a room. In fact, Sister was famous for doing things like buying wood furniture at flea market prices and painting it white for summer homes and using "rag rugs" and patchwork quilts. |
Decorating simply does not have to be expensive. Take Billy Baldwin, another great American decorator(1903-1984), who by the way, also worked for Jackie O. He loved simple cotton fabrics like ticking and chose to live in a one room studio apartment. In one of his books, Billy Baldwin Decorates, Baldwin talks about how something as simple as color can transform a room. He says it is the "best thing for a budget because no color costs more than another color." The room with the pink curtains to the right was designed by Billy Baldwin. It's interesting how he used the brown ikat decorative throw pillows as accents. We have an ikat fabric for upholstery that looks very similar by the way. And if you prefer not to diy, we will make custom throw pillows of any size for you.

The best decorators throughout time have known how to, as we say, "recycle." They would understand reupholstering or slipcovering a sofa your grandmother gave you with some of our fabric for upholstery curtains bedding or refreshing a room with some of our decorative throw pillows in ikat or suzani fabric. You don't need a decorator to spruce up kitchen decor with our fun kitchen rugs and mats or make your bathroom look like new with a unique shower curtain. Our new shower curtain in the famous Beverly Hills Hotel coffee shop banana print is fun and glam!
