In My Mailbox:
I found Artistic Headboards from San Fransisco's Scavullo Design,
and Canadian Color Expert Maria Killam's Pretty Living Room
-- a Before and After Peek
Interior Designer Barbara Scavullo says she has difficulty using the same furniture selection in more than one client's house. Instead, she strives to find the right materials and inspiration to make each client's home special and as unique as possible. Therefore, cookie-cutter looks don't work for her. A home should reflect the personality of those who live there.
It is Scavullo's business design to listen to their clients and then help broaden the possibilities by suggesting various creative options.

What a nice surprise to find these headboards (below) in my mailbox, sent along by the firm to inspire us all. Barbara likes the idea of turning old textural screens and beautiful rugs into custom focal points for placement above the bed. Take a look at these lovelies:
She also likes the idea of placing antique benches and other types of seating at the foot of the bed, such as these:
The headboard above is a tooled leather.

Who Shares a Peek into Her New Home:
So fresh -- a hip-kind-of elegance.
I couldn't tell until she said that she painted the ceiling a light blue. "It's Cloverdale 7388 Cloud Wisped Sky -- which is Sherwin Williams' (SW) 6805 for American readers."
"I'm madly in love with the wall color! I chose Rice Paper from one of Cloverdale's new Artisan Colours CA037 (equivalent to SW 7010). It's light and ethereal and looks so great with my pops of yellow!"
She removed the carpet and had Pravada floors intalled. The brand is sold all across Canada and in the US Westcoast.
