Chairish & 6 Designers Share Tips For A (Mini) Room Refresh (Pssst: Home Glow is the One of Them!!! ;)

I told you I might have a mid-week post for you!

Happy New Year!! Well, it actually still feels a little like the holidays, because the town’s school system just sent out a message that school is cancelled YET AGAIN tomorrow due to YET ANOTHER blizzard. So the kids will be home, tomorrow… again. They only left for 2 days.

People, we just got out of negative digits for the first time in a week today. And we have at least 2 more months of winter!

However, we (and when I say we, I mean me, because this small company really is just little ol’ me) are SUPER EXCITED because Chairish just featured Home Glow Design as one of 6 designers to interview about why they love to buy vintage and some quick home refresh tips for the new year.

And Home Glow Design is the cover shot!

Chairish also features a “curated” collection by each of us according to our style.

(I put that “curated” in parenthesis because I have a friend who actually is an art curator, and we all know that “curating” a collection of home decor and furniture doesn’t really fall under the same expertise.)

Am I freaking out?


You can read my featured tips here and my “curated” picks here. However, so that this isn’t completely blatant self-promotion, I’ve included some of my choices that I truly think are good deals, below.

Green Gathered Shade

From one of my favorite shade makers!

Thonet Cheval Mirror

I love all things Thonet.

Pink Dhurrie

Sort of like Madeline Weinrib, but cheaper and in wool.

Lacquered Linen Parsons Table

A VERY good deal for a lacquered linen table. Cincinnati relatives -- this is a local find for you!

Modigiliani Style Painting

In the style of Modigliani by a favorite painter of mine, Trixie Pitts.

Global Views Klismos Table

Fabulous Global Views dining table for less than wholesale. Trust me.

Clear Murano Chandelier

I love a Murano chandelier more than I can say. This is a STEAL. You'll only find better at auction.

Tiger Maple China Cabinet

A few people have asked about my D.R. Dimes cabinet. Something similar here, without the pedigree, but at half the

Crypton Sofa

Crypton covered sofa from American maker MT company. Same price as Big Box, whole lot better quality.

Murano Lamp

More murano!

Barbara Barry for Baker Table

For my Atlanta peeps -- this is BAKER and nearly pristine.

Room-Sized Oushak Rug

A big beautiful wool Oushak for less than wholesale.

Pair Green Opaline Lamps

French opaline lamps. I might get these for myself.

Painted Henredon Queen Anne Chairs

Painted Henredon Queen Anne chairs!

And remember, if you sign up for Home Glow’s Saturday Blog, you’ll get my:

7 tips for buying consignment vintage cheap

Rather appropriate for today’s topic, dontcha think?

Please check out the other wonderful designers featured: Grace Frederick Design, Amal Kapen Interiors, Galyean Vail, Field Theory Design, and Jen Talbot Design. It’s an embarrassment of inspiration.

And thanks to Ivy (my super designer software company and 1,500+ designer community) and Chairish for this opportunity.

See you Saturday!

If I don’t freeze before then.
