We often have clients come in and see a piece they like…. but they’re not sure how or where to use it in their home. The staff at Chartreuse is very helpful when it comes to these questions and I do a lot of consults in and out of the shoppe. However, there are times when a client doesn’t speak up and ask the questions out loud. So……… I’ve spent many hours going thru my mags, Pinterest, books, etc. and found tons of photos using the items we have “in house” here at Chartreuse.
Most everything we have in the shoppe is one-of-a-kind, so the photos are examples of similar pieces. We also want our clients to use this board as inspiration for a custom piece they may want us to build. And, don’t forget… you may have a piece at home that is similar……… and you’re tired of it….. so the board may give you an idea of how to make your old piece NEW!
Spring is in the air….. The whites and grays of Winter are stepping aside for FRESH and VIBRANT COLORS! They are back!
As most of you, I’m inspired by the weather, my mood, trends, other artists, etc. But most of us get our inspiration from popular magazines. It’s all about what’s in NOW! Fortunately, I’m in total agreement with most of the designers out there and the contemporary vibe of color and it’s big comeback! I love color! I’m known for color and as much as I love white on white on white……… I LOVE COLOR!
Clients come in weekly with their mags and wish lists and new ideas they’ve seen. I love it! I spend a small fortune myself on mags and couldn’t live without them. I need visual stimulation at all times! Seriously!
I have a pretty creative mind and I’ve been blessed with vision. I design, I build, I create. I see things in my dreams and I literally wake up and sketch. But for most people they have a hard time with this. They know what they like when they see it, but have a hard time organizing there thoughts and making a room complete from scratch. That’s where designers, magazines, books and shopping comes in!
So……. Don’t be afraid of COLOR!!!!!!!!!!! There are many ways to bring it into your existing rooms….. NOW….. without a lifetime commitment! You can make a start with art, pillows and small occasional pieces like tables or a chair. JUST DO IT! AND LET US HELP!
Stay connected and see the new items brought back from this weeks trip and other local artists….. Photos should be posted on our facebook page soon!
Thanks and keep the feedback coming in! We love hearing from you…… it’s what we do! Cindy

So, I’ve been super busy with the studio, auctions, normal day to day stuff and haven’t had much time to blog the way I like. Tomorrow I promise to update you on a serious amount of info and photos of new artists items and furniture. I promise you won’t be disappointed! Thanks for all the comments and support! I’m almost caught up with my orders since the hurricane and all items should be shipped within the week! xoxo Cindy
