Here we come–we’re venturing into the land where cardinals and wildcats are sworn enemies. Our second new store for 2014 will be in Louisville, KY, in between Trader Joe’s and Genesis Diamonds on Shelbyville Road. We’ll be filling 4,000 square feet with a constantly rotating stock of fun furniture and accessories. We’re looking forward to joining the rest of the fantastic tenants at the Shelbyville Plaza shopping center and meeting the residents of the Bluegrass State.
Watch this space for updates–we’re planning on a late May/early June opening! In the meantime, we’ll be brushing up on our bourbon and Derby knowledge.

One of our favorite designers, long time Nadeau Dallas shopper and a dear friend, Karen Hirst from Hirst Designs, created a fabulous new look in her recent cabin project.
Our glass buffet was turned into a stunning stove top and sink vanity for a small, rustic cabin. The tall glass armoire was added to the space for storage in the kitchen.
And in the dining room she used our dining table and chairs to finish off the look.
We just love the customizations, are you feeling inspired? Why not try it for yourself?

Easter is soon approaching and we are feeling inspired by our daily reads of blogs and magazines – it’s time to get creative with DIY Easter decorations. Apartment Therapy has a beautiful and simple post on how to decorate eggs with natural DIY dyes – all you need are some eggs, a little creativity and to follow these steps on their website:
1. Stickers: This one is great for the kids – cover your eggs with stickers before dipping them in the dye to create interesting shapes.
2. Waxed Crayons: Also a great one for the kids – before you place the eggs in your homemade dyes draw designs on the eggs with light colored crayons. The wax will not absorb the dyes and create a beautiful design.
3. Rubber Bands: Wrap rubber bands around a hard boiled egg and let it soak for an hour in a warm mixture of turmeric, salt and vinegar.
4. Herbs, Flowers, Leaves: Use a variety of greens from the garden to create interesting relief pattens.
5. Onion Peels: Wrap raw eggs in onion skins and cheese cloth, then boil them for 20 minutes. The oils from the skins will transfer onto the eggs to create a mottled look.
We can’t wait to give these a try – happy decorating!
