Bathroom Vanity Lessons: Getting Dog Pee Off of Wood Surfaces - Bathroom Vanities Articles

Bathroom Vanity Lessons: Getting Dog Pee Off of Wood Surfaces - Bathroom Vanities Articles | Interior Design Hot Topics | Scoop.it
As anyone who’s ever had inside pets can tell you, eventually your furniture gets peed on. And, as luck would have it, Boris peed on my wood bathroom vanity. This is ‘lucky’ only in the sense that I now have something new to talk about on my vanity blog, and, I suppose, also in the sense that I learned something new.

What is It About Sleigh Beds that We Can't Get Enough Of

What is It About Sleigh Beds that We Can't Get Enough Of | Interior Design Hot Topics | Scoop.it

Clearly, that is not the case with sleigh beds.
Cheryl Khan's insight:

Sleigh beds were made to mimic the style of horse drawn carriages.  Makes so much sense.

Interior Design Spotlight: Evocative 1920s Tudor Home -  NJ | Interior Design Hot Topics | Scoop.it

The owners of this majestic 1930s Tudor home are good friends and we worked together for years on the interior design. It radiates a warm, character-filled comfort, equal parts rich, original stained wood, and comfortable, textured furnishings. The style is eclectic, the traditional living/dining rooms contrasting with the more transitional, uncluttered master bedroom suite.
