Living near Houston, the shopping is endless..in fact overwhelming at times and the budget furniture deals abound. For instance, look what i happened across on Thursday while shopping with a client to furnish a COMMERCIAL space..That’s right, Big Furniture Deals..my new favorite saying..classy right?!
And where do we go for “BIG ACCESSORY DEALS?? B.A.D….yes, Super Marshalls..where everyone now officially hates me…three carts maybe four carts later, we had to beg someone to check us out…but it was all worth it because i found the big leaf…which so reminds me of THIS image below from Cottage living (or maybe it was in Southern Living but it is the Coastal Living editor’s home??? Design Sponge via the Newlywed Diaries blog..read more about it there)….Please correct me in the comments if you know more about the sourcing…The large, organic look of these pressed leaves has stuck with me..just adore it..come to find out..the blog above reports they are POSTERS from www.allposters.com I can’t find them on their site but they have some great botanicals…it just confirms that large makes such an impact.
I am sure many of you remember this now…I totally thought of this when I saw the leaf in Marshalls…maybe I am nuts..luckily my client’s wife was game…
anyway, the big leaf coupled with inexpensive leather and a few manly, Texas-y items (like kilim pillows, cowhide rug, HUGE framed Texas map that is black and white and large iron scrolly console, chunky corbel lamp with grasscloth shade) HOPEFULLY will translate into a nice coastal Texas, masculine feel for this office..stay tuned to see more from this project and more BDF!;;
