It seems most people collect something which still makes many of us hunters and gatherers.  We collect for different reasons- we may be recreating childhood memories, because it is fun and relaxing, because one day it may be worth something, it creates a sense of achievement in finding the treasures.  We use our collections in many ways but the main use is usually a way to accessorize our home.  Our collections are a way to inject some personality!

Remember- No Matchy Matchy

Now that spring is F I N A L L Y here on the outside, let’s bring some spring time inside with some 
wonderful new wallpapers introduced by Thibaut.

haven’t been a huge fan of wallpaper for awhile but in the last few of years it has gone from hideous and sad to totally chic.  Wallpaper companies have gotten more gutsy and have introduced all types of textures, finishes, exaggerated patterns and modern motifs.  Here are just a few new introductions from Thibaut.  Enjoy…..

There are wall decals & then there are these graphic goodies!
