What Mom Wouldn’t Want a Little Bling?

Mother’s Day should be celebrated every day, but a little TLC and some sparkle will help make your mom shine on her holiday!

Introduced in 2012, this traditional 5-light Carrabelle chandelier is stunning.  European in design yet versatile in appeal, the abundance of drops cascade in “bubbles” around the fixture body for a touch of glamour.  Due to its popularity, in 2013 an 8-light and 4-light with a chifon fabric shade were introduced.

Looking for bling and glitz, this contemporary piece introduced in 2014 is for you! The Evermore wall fixture offers an abundance of multi-faceted crystals which are enhanced by the polished chrome finish and the supplied clear xenon bulbs that showcase the sparkle of this sleek series.  The Evermore, part of Quoizel’s increasingly popular Platinum Collection is offered in three different sizes, and if you like this collection be sure to take a look at the Paragon Collection.

It’s Throwback Thursday!!

In the 1950’s Sunset Boulevard and Cinderella were playing on the big screen.  Families were moving out to the suburbs and kids watched Howdy Doody on 12 inch black and white TV sets.  The median family income was $3,300 a year, and milk was still delivered to the doorstep. 

Here’s a look at a 1950’s bathroom…no pampering going on here!!

There’s no comparison to today’s bathroom which is not only functional but a room you want to go in and never leave!

This gorgeous contemporary bathroom which was designed by Divine Kitchens is cool, sleek and has sophistication written all over it!  This bathroom recently seen on Houzz, features Quoizel’s Downtown Collection.    Gleaming glass ball accents complement the opal etched glass drum shade and shiny chrome finish, bringing a soft modern sensibility to your home.
