I Love Mylar

In the southern most part of SOBE ( South Miami Beach) exist a nail salon named LACE.

The interior design in the first image is what nailed me (ha ha), because it has Mylar Wall Covering and Venetian mirrors.


The other day I was reading the Times and there was an article on a Nail Salon Company that makes designer fingernail films. And the one that they featured was a silver one.
'Voila' , and here I think you have Mylar Nails.
This company has AMAZING patterns on their films. Herringbone,stripes, nautical themes...it is wild. Check it out. I have provided the link , clock on 'Minx Nails'
It really is like microscopic wall covering.
How cool is that ?

Bangkok On The Brain

Let's pack up and hit the road.
...okay, not exactly a road trip, but a really long flight to the other side of the world. We will  stay in Bangkok, at the Mandarin Oriental. 
It is on a river with great views from the rooms as well.
Not bad !
Enlarge this one to see the lattice work on the right !
Actually , this was my reason for this post. 
And to save for my own 'design inspiration.'  You never know... I may need a divider that is 'open in feel' but is permanent like this one.
I think it truly is handsome.  
These colors are bright, yet very warm and cozy. I think this room is pretty good. 
Yep, I'd stay in it.  (LOL..... you KNOW it !!)
Look at the view... and everything else in this hotel.
You really should go to the site.


Luscious.


It is on a river. ( and there is that pagoda style lattice work )
I have been to Hong Kong , and if I could.....I would live there.
But I have never been to Bangkok.
And now, I have Bangkok on the brain !! 
BIG TIME !
Would you chose to come, if you could fit it into your busy schedule ??
hmmmmm ?

Kitchens Inspired By Conservatories

Look at the shades for the windows and the glass ceiling. There are companies that specialize in shades for this very purpose. 

What a difference these windows that run straight up to the ceiling make in this room. If you can not do more than this ….well, this is fabulous. And if you have a beautiful garden outside, it will make you smile every time you wash a dish.

Right ?

This is obviously a restaurant , but how great would this be added onto the kitchen part of the house ?


If you add a window , or change a window over your kitchen sink ... run in up as close to the ceiling as you can.

This could be done to add a larger eat in area in your kitchen.


You could even do this to bring the outside inside. Get creative. The possibilities are endless.

Do you think that an addition like this, or some part of this idea, would change the way you feel about your kitchen ?

Never Thought I would Go For ...

A Purple Sofa & Chairs.
I am not loving the color of the sofa ( it is lighter ) , but the dark chairs with the nail heads are killer. 

But I think this looks divine with
the paper is like a modern Chinoiserie. No ?
The Black Wall Covering Makes It.

Honestly, I would be very happy with that wall in my home. For sure !
I am loving it.

What do you think ? 
Do You likie ?

Mirroring With Antiqued Subway Tiles

This is a relatively inexpensive mirrored wall treatment.
The ROSETTES are a must when using mirror tiles.
I think this beveled-subway tile is the absolute bomb! Love.


This looks great, and what a fix this could be for a dull, or ugly wall you wish would disappear. The mirror tiles are antiqued. And there are tiny gold glass rosettes. Don't forget the rosettes.
Clear beveled mirror tiles.


Just a few patterns for you to think about.
If you do something like this pattern ( above) that I have provided for you, on a wall in the living room (or where ever...), just apply the paint of your choice, trim color on the molding, and insert mirror inside the molding. This is a 'guaranteed great' look. 
It solves a problem or two in a big room with a long wall. Place your sofa in the center and blah,blah,blah. You will need less art by doing this, and fine art can be costly. It has always been a great alternative for me.
Above, I mirrored the entire door , and applied the molding over the mirror.
Jockimo has a great selection of antiqued mirror tiles.
If you go to Patricia Gray's blog, you will see Back Painted Glass that was used as a back-splash. Sometimes you can do the exact same thing with the back painted glass ( or tiles) that you could do with mirror. Check It Out.

This is a great mirror and glass site; Jockimo.com

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
