Use A Feather

Feathers have embellished our surroundings for centuries, including what we wear.
Nobody wears feathers like Cher, no?
Feathers are glamorous.
Fabulous really.


Below a picture taken from from my design website,
I have two tall matching floral arrangements on either side of an elevator door and on the very top are feathers.



*And for those of us who suffer from perfectionism, I suggest using a feather when beating yourself up for not doing something perfectly!
This SOFT feather will do just fine.






Feather trims for pillows, floral arrangements, even on a sofa instead of bullion fringe.
Yes, sewn into upholstery. It is wild and beautiful if done in a way that you have to look twice to realize it is trimmed in feathers. Not too outrageous, just a tiny 'pop' that is a quiet 'wow factor'.

Have a nice weekend...........love to all my friends and supporters!!

I am back.....

Work is work.
Just that.
Work.
It is a daily struggle for me. I come off like a very secure , confident, professional, but still a playful person. But that is not what is going on inside my head. I am unsure of myself, and it is a struggle for me to be with co-workers. You know....other 'CORPORATE people.'

After I have been doing the selling thing on the floor with a couple of clients.....I feel as though "I've been birthin' babies !"
(That's a line from Gone With The Wind)
I am just worn out!! It is tough to be 'ON' if you know what I mean.
I just read a great book; 'Ghosts Among Us' - by James Van Praagh ( NYT Bestseller)
It was fabulous for me. Just what I needed.
It has given me a whole new way to recharge myself at any time of the day.
You have heard the saying; "you can start your day over at any time of the day!"
Well, this book takes it to a whole new level.
If you have read 'Many Lives Many Masters' you will love this a s well.
It is completely uplifting.

For one thing, regarding anyone you have ever lost in life through death or even suicide, this book will give you true comfort. For me , I have lost my Dad and I miss him a great deal. I think of him often. In this book I found out that when you think of a lost loved one who has passed on, their spirit is instantly with you.
I knew he was there all those times!!!!

Also you are given many visualizations.
For instance; if you visualize a pink aura around yourself, it will emanate love. This visualization is for protection. But you do have to think only GOOD & PURE thoughts.
It is working for me.............

So today at work I will be surrounding myself with a pink glow.

I am not a far-out person. Trust me on this. But...it can't hurt me to be open minded and try new things.
G-d knows, we all could use a better tool box to get through this life.

Three Places I Would Rather Be Today

With My Sore Feet.

Later this morning, around 9:30 am I will be at work.
We are having a crazy sale. The company I work for has blasted the air-ways.
And I expect to be very busy all day.
BUT, I would rather be........

Right HERE! * do you think if I soaked my feet in a giant martini they would feel better?
(The Langham Hotel in London - above)
(I think this Pagoda styled bar is so glamorous. To me, Pagoda is classic)
Or HERE. * I know my soul would be better in Paris.
And definitely HERE!!
*Actually, this would be easy to pull off, if only I could find the time.

Sorry for so few of posts, I still am getting settled in at the new job.
It is 60 thousand square feet of merchandise to learn.....
I miss everyone.

If You Would Like Add A Dramatic Touch Of BLACK

Try A Black Crystal Lighting Fixture.




These would make great pendants over a glamorous bar/counter.
These come in a full range of prices. From $100.00 to $$$$$$$$

Even if you would like to add one to your dorm room.....you can slap it on the wall, and it will stick!











All sources are on the bottom of each picture.

I am still adjusting to my new job.
Actually I am 'finding my way'.
New people, new product to learn, and entirely new company policies to learn and incorporate into my own designing style.

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.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

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.
