Roman’s Top Ten Countdown # 7

Hi Everyone! This next one took me a while because I didn’t know what was worth the #7 spot. The Shi Shi Table (#049651; $859) is a mirrored gem of a table and is definitely a glamorous addition to your home. The curved legs of the table is what makes this an outstanding piece, in my opinion. – Unique Furniture and Accessories for the Eclectic, Modern Lifestyle.


Light Columns

I LOVE this outdoor party decoration idea! The light columns next to the pool are paper lanterns that have been stacked on Christmas light covered wooden poles. So easy and they look amazing. I may have to throw a party just so I can use this idea!! Thanks Martha Stewart! : ) – Unique Furniture and Accessories for the Eclectic, Modern Lifestyle.

Modern Barn Done Right!

The trend of facing sofas that don’t exactly match has shown up once again. Courtesy of Remodelista, no one said a modern barn had to be an oxymoron.  The interior design manages to strike a perfect harmonic balance between old and new.  The exposed wood beams respects the beautiful structure of the barn.    Clean, simple stainless steel countertop compliments the raw, yet refined look of the design.  Big, open,…

The house was built with every intention to integrate seamlessly with the natural lakes,…
