With so many great gadgets available to the modern home, one to consider when renovating would be a dumbwaiter. A dumbwaiter is a fantastic help in the home whether you would use it for transporting morning breakfast, transferring freshly folded laundry, or firewood to a wood burning fireplace. Dumbwaiters in older colonial homes were operated by pulley systems to bring cumbersome items from one floor level to another directly above or below. New dumbwaiters have sophisticated engines, locks and lighting systems making the job even more convenient. If you are considering installing one during a renovation, you must consider electrical hookup, and most importantly the space required for the shaft and mechanics.
Flowers and plants are a wonderful way to breathe life in your designs. They can accentuate a color, create a focal point, or set the tone in the room.
For a punch of color and a fantastic silhouette this pretty vase is just the ticket. It is inspired by a skydiver’s graceful descent through the air, this vase from Waterford lends your home tranquil appeal. The artistry of this vase is superb, it almost seems like liquid in form.
I love the marbling of aqua, celadon and cool blue tones over the face of the Waterford Evolution Vase, blues are hot right now, or should I say cool?

The Art Nouveau movement is marked by the focus of “the natural world” style and fluid lines. These cast iron reproduction fireplaces bear the marks and character of the originals they were designed from. The Paris fireplace is an all-in-one combination fireplace, in a highlight finish, typical of the period with its florid interlaced French Art Nouveau style motifs – shown here with a black granite hearth.
Have you ever watched an adventure movie where someone suggests a crazy idea to get out of a sticky situation and the hero turns and says “That’s just wild enough that it just might work”, well, I had the same feeling when I looked at this wildly glass-emblazoned mirror. The symmetry gives balance to the intricacy of the mirrored pieces, and at 25.5” in diameter, this round mirror is just bold enough, that it just might work on that accent wall or front foyer to make a impacting first glance. So much better than a boring single-edge wood-framed mirror, and just how great would it look on a dark bronze wall?

Take your décor up a notch to the tune of a Moroccan beat. Morocco’s old world eclecticism and dye-drenched hues of a sunnier disposition add a bit of warmth and interest where ever you need it.
