Bedroom by Brocade

One of the big trends getting stronger the past couple of seasons is out and out GLAM. Shine. Glitz. GaGa. Sometimes it can be hard to live with unless you have a penthouse in Vegas or a pied a terre in Hollywood because you can end up with a beauty parlor look if you’re not careful. But when it’s tastefully done, as it is here by Lisa Versacio at Brocade, glam can be very soothing and peaceful. Note how the printed bed linens pick up the cutwork on the headboard? And the touches of this season’s favorite green color make a nice accent. See more pics at their facebook page for inspiring ways to incorporate glam into your home.  I also love the bead curtain–a classical feng shui cure when used properly. And orchids always add ch’i to any room. Well done!

‘Tree Of Hope’ Stands As Poignant Symbol In Japan : The Two-Way : NPR.

This is the only tree standing of a grove of pine trees planted in Rikuzentakata, Japan some 200 years ago. The tsunami wiped the town out but this lone tree is a symbol of hope to the townspeople and we can take some inspiration from it, too. What has inspired hope in you when life seemed unbearable and you felt like tossing in the towel? Share with us in the comments please. And Japan still needs our help: here’s how you can help and you can also buy this CD.

Feng Shui By Fishgirl is scouring the internet AND High Point International Furniture Market for inspiration this week. The herb garden wall planter you see above (click on link above to HouseToHome’s blog for more pics) brings a healthy green herb garden into your kitchen and adds color and style to your walls as well—great feng shui!

The High Point International Furniture Market officially opens April 2nd but there’s plenty to see for those of us wanting to walk around getting a “sneak peek” today! Click here to see Lisa Sherry’s great “Luxe Life” blog featuring this fantastic pictorial spread of  the Red Egg showroom (which also happens to be located in a completely restored historic Victorian mansion) in High Point. Yes, this is a showroom, but it’s also owner/designer Carol Gregg’s home and Feng Shui By Fishgirl feels the feng shui vibes here are very warm and cozy.. Her use of color, textiles, art, and accessories will give you many ideas for displays in your own home space.
