Ahh Choo! Part Deux

It's no secret that the Gramercy Girls love a Tissue Box Cover.  It might be the Southern that runs through our blood.  I blogged about these last Spring (see here) but I couldn't help showing you a few new additions.  These two monogrammed cuties just came off the machine and we actually got a picture before they went to their new homes - Thank you Liz!

Matouk recently added tissue box covers to its line of accessories and I'm a big fan of the first one done in the same style as the Lowell bedding

The hand towels and covers above are part of the bespoke line - these can be done in 100's of colors. 

Of course, I hope none of you actually have to use the tissues in the box!

Ooh Ahh Oh - My Kind of Space

Coastal Living

I crave space and open spaces with lots of natural light like the room above (this view wouldn't hurt either).  I love how this room is open, yet cozy.  The seating area is perfect for a lingering conversation or curling up with a good book.  I'm also a big fan of the open dining area because it creates an inspiring work space.  All I need to do is move my house, raise the roof and bust out the space.  Done.

Cool. Calm. Collect

House Beautiful
I've been busy as a bee the past couple of days - catching up on all sorts of "to do's" around the house and yard.  I"m craving everything to be organized and put away. For my home to feel like an oasis.  When one things of calm space so often it is of an all white/beige room.  These rooms, however, are filled with color, texture and art and still remain both calming and inspiring.  I'm ready to move in.

"Between the Sheets" with Nursery Notations

Hi Everyone! I'm excited to present our next installment of "Between the Sheets" with Andrika King of Nursery Notations, an inspiring blog for nursery ideas (and all sorts of other things baby mama's need to know).  I always recommend Andrika's blog to moms looking for inspriation when designing the perfect room for her baby on board.  Take it away Andrika!

First off a special thank you to Gramercy Home for asking me to make a guest post today. I had a pleasure of visiting the store back in the spring and love absolutely everything inside. I have since purchased many items for clients and myself there and always look forward to seeing their new store update photos.

As you all know this series is entitled “between the sheets” and since my specialty is children’s spaces I thought I would focus my post on nurseries. (But in case you were wondering, my husband and I sleep in a queen bed with simple heavenly white Yves Delorme bedding, but I secretly can't wait to move to a king bed)

When designing a nursery, actually one of the first questions I ask a client is if they want the space to be calming or energetic. This does not have to mean modern or traditional in style, it is just a general feeling that you are looking for in the room.

Here are a few examples of calming nurseries using a neutral color palette:

A modern yet neutral triplet nursery designed by Marsh & Clark Design

This is a twin's nursery which I designed with a playful aesthetic provided by the mural on the back wall.

 A traditional nursery with a contemporary twist of layered fabrics and a splash of baby blue by Sarah Richardson Design

I designed this traditional nursery for a little girl who's mom wanted a more romantic flair without being over the top.
But recently there has been a strong trend towards nurseries with a more modern crisp bold look.  A nursery is a wonderful place to experiment with design and color combination ideas.
This image by Elizabeth Kimberly is perfectly bold and playful.

Nursery designed by Jennifer LeLonge featured in Room for Children by Susanna Salk is one of my favorites. A modern contemporary daybed upholstered in a David Hicks fabric takes center stage. If you can fit a daybed or extra bed in a nursery, go for it.  You'll appreciate the extra seating for more than one person.

And to end a photo of my own son's nursery. (Excuse the lumpy crib bedding, this was taken when when he was already a year old).  I actually put a full bed in the room to begin with to allow for more sleeping space when guests visit.  We tend to use it more for comfy wrestling.  I'd say my nursery is a contemporary take on nautical with splashes of color. My walls are burlap and I love the fact that I can move artwork and photos around without having to worry about holes showing.
Thank you for having me this week and please visit Nursery Notations for more inspirational children's rooms photos and ideas.

Thanks Andrika! Love the twist on the series.

Inspiring Bedroom

This bed makes me happy.  What is that throw at the bottom of the bed?  Anyone know? I love it!

Stay inside and stay warm while receiving 20% off your favorite items at Gramercy!

It is COLD outside!  And, we want you to stay WARM.  Don't' venture out into "Snow Jam '11" when you can shop comfortably from your home and receive 20% off your favorite items at Gramercy!!!
 Perhaps you have been debating sprucing up your bed linens in the new year?  With 20% off, now is the perfect time to try out one of our favorite sheets - Celeste by Sferra.

Adding a few new pretties to the bath always helps me feel like I made a big change.  This hand blown collection from Labrazel is one of my favorites. 

After hosting Christmas dinner I realized I needed a few add-in pieces for my linen collection. Why not get your table in order before next holiday season?  These classic hemstitched linens will carry you from casual to formal.  Add a monogram for some major impact.

Being housebound is an ideal time to curl up by the fire and catch up on some reading. This is my kind of book - lots of pictures!!  You don't even have to worry about remembering a plot after your second or third glass of wine.

Of course you can't forget the little people.  At Gramercy we just adore the little people.   
They can't tell you but they really want this adorable sheep mobile. Promise.

And then there are the quintessential Gramercy baby goodies: 
The "flower" monogram bloomers for her first photo shoot, 

and the blanket that nobaby wants to be seen without:

Shutdown in the ATL and at Gramercy

Since the whole city is covered in this....

And some of the best roads look like this....

We will not be opening the shop today and instead hope everyone in the area will do a bit of this... 
We hope to be back to business as usual tomorrow (Wednesday). 
Until then, please stay warm and stay safe!

We're baaaack...

Hello dear readers and blogger buddies!.  It's been ages and I'm so excited to get back to blogging in the new year.  Atlanta is expecting another snow storm this evening and everyone is now safely at home with fires roaring and great anticipation for a white Monday morning.  Cozy is the key word around here right now and these rooms say just that to me.  How inviting is the entrance above?

The combination of color and texture in this room make we want to sit and stay a while.

Nothing says cozy like walls that mimic a log cabin.  Check out the the juxtaposition of the mirrored sidetable amongst all the rustic charm. 

This iron day bed in the niche above would make an ideal reading/napping space.  I'd be hard-pressed to do much else around the house if I had this room tempting me on a daily basis.

Wishing you all a cozy thoughts!
