Ribbons and buttons ideas galore!

Nicholas Kniel, whose eponymous shop is my favorite shop in Atlanta, gave a presentation at the ADAC ( professional interior design center) at Kravet fabrics last week. He showed how fabrics and ribbons and buttons could make gift wrapping, organizing and holiday decorating stylish and fun.

In the 2010 holiday issue of Traditional Home he will have a 6 page spread featuring his ideas, book and holiday decorating. He used wall paper leftovers to wrap gifts ( his tip use a glue gun to seal the wrapping ends) and buttons became pillow and gift adornment and were the main decoration on a wonderful wreath.

He is living his version of the "pink life" making things beautiful , organized, creative and using what is often at hand in a new way. He incorporates dressmaker details into design for the home or the gift. Many of his clients are brides looking for something special to add to their gowns or to the reception decorations. Enjoy the sneak peak and watch for the magazine soon.

Have a PINK day!

The color of love, friendship and if we could live the life of this color everything would be different this time ... tickets to so many beautiful things are inspiring, just beautiful!
