Bar Cart Series No. 7 ... Lavin Label

The incredible creatives for this fun series just get better and better and today I have a fabulous tastemaker to share with you.  Monica Lavin is the creator of Lavin Label a go to for me for incredible products and ideas.  I first discovered Lavin Label in an Emily McCarthy blog post and once I opened her website I just couldn't stop reading.  Her styling is impeccable and each post is like an issue of a magazine. Her Instagram feed is fabulous, I constantly find myself screen shooting and making notes to try something amazing she has suggested. You will love Monica and every single thing she does.


Designer Spotlight ... Olive Interiors

Leigh Mowry's designs are just as colorful and sassy as she is, full of depth and life with the pop of fabulous.  I can remember the first time I met Leigh, her laugh and that million dollar smile had me immediately wanting more.  


Orange On My Mind

I am having a mad passionate love affair with orange at the moment.  I usually feel orange is more for fall, and then I realized how silly that is.  Orange is perfect for all year and I am embracing it with my arms wide open!


Framing Original Art

When I finished the den One Room Challenge I was lovingly gifted an original piece of art drawn by the talented Mari Robeson.  She surprised me on Instagram with the incredible depiction of the swan planter in the den and I am still blown away by her generosity.  The artwork is incredible and it captures the essence of the space in the room perfectly.  I still can't help but just stare at it and let my eye soak up all of the details.

Isn't it amazing?  

When I thought of framing the piece I truly wanted to frame it with the same care as Mari put into each element of the painting.  I immediately thought of Framebridge.  I loved the piece so much and didn't want to add a mat and wanted the frame to truly fit the piece perfectly.  Framebridge framed a few of my son's graduation photos and they are my favorites in the gallery wall in the upstairs hall. The frames were perfect and the care they took with my original photos made a big impression on me.

If you have never worked with Framebridge you will immediately notice something special about their customer service.  You can either upload your photos to them for framing or they can ship you a container to ship your item to them.  Since my piece was an original I chose the second option.  A box arrived at my house and after putting my piece in it with the instructions they sent I dropped it off at UPS.  Easy, peasy.

About a week or so later another box arrived at my door containing my original framed art in the incredible frame I chose.  It was easy to make a decision once I uploaded a picture of my artwork and played around with frame options until I found the one I thought fit the piece perfectly.  I chose the Mandalay and it is truly so fabulous I almost can't stand it!  I mean thin gold bamboo frame ... you had me at hello!

I squealed when I opened the box.  I absolutely love it, the frame is just what I wanted for the piece and the care they took in framing my special piece has made me an instant Framebridge customer for life.  I mean ... you know how I feel about a handwritten note. #special

I could not be happier with my swan.  A special piece made just for me from a special room in our house framed just the way I hoped and now hanging in our bar area.  It makes me happy every time I spot it.  Isn't he darling?

Thank you Framebridge for the amazing customer service and the perfect product delivered to my door. We love it so ...

Happy Tuesday!
