Kick Back and Relax

Lately it has been quite chilly here in the Windy City. I find myself so cold at times that I can barely function when I get home from work. What better way is there to relax after a long cold day at work by creating my own little spa at home? Here are a few things that I cannot wait to get my hands on.

Debut of Peak Signature Series

Finally the long awaited Peak Signature Series is available.  So far I have only added the first set of signature placemats and napkins in navy blue.  Other products and colors will be added over the next few weeks for your viewing pleasure.  Let me know what you think.

Peak Signature Series-Navy Oxford Placemats and Napkins

Peak Signature Series-Navy Oxford Placemats and Napkins

Placemats (19×14)
Front Fabric is a lovely navy blue oxford (70% cotton 30% polyester). Back fabric is navy blue twill (100% cotton).

Napkins (18×18)
Navy blue oxford (70% cotton 30% polyester)

All fabric has been pre-washed, machine sewn with white thread. The oxford fabric is light and soft, while the twill gives the placemats a nice weight so they lay nice and flat.

Each placemat and napkin has a hand painted simple navy blue Peak signature design. Due to each piece being hand painted designs may vary slightly from one another.

Machine wash cold with like colors, placemats lay flat to dry, napkins may be dried on regular heat.

City Artist Spotlight Series-Asheville NC!

Every Friday artists will be chosen to represent the craftiness of their city. This week the selected city is giving some love to Asheville! I have selected Asheville artists from Etsy to share. Feel free to comment if you would like your city or favorite artist to be chosen for a Friday spotlight.

The artist that inspired me to choose Asheville is Element Clay Studio. After checking out her shop I found several great artists from Asheville. I think I need to plan a trip there for some inspiration.

It’s All about the Lighting

One of the most important features when decorating is LIGHTING.  It does not matter how amazing you think your space is, if it does not have good lighting its just a lost cause.  One of the first things that we did when we moved into our loft was swap all almost all of the light switches with dimmer switches.  It enables us to have task lighting when we need it and soften the mood when guests are over.

I also love to use lamps or track lighting as an artistic expression.  It is one of the easiest ways to combine art with function.  Check out a few of my favorites from fellow Etsy artists.
