While off for the Christmas Holidays - I took some time to check out other blogs, and companies that we currently deal with to see what was new and exciting out in the industry.
Not suprisingly I found that the colour Orange has made a strong comeback.....sorry to the robins egg blue that was my friend for 7 years...but my orange - specifically my Hermes Orange has brought me more inspiration and given me a whole new direction with my store. Hermes released a new Mens Collection which included the Steve Messenger bag - named after the actor Steve McQueen - it of course comes in neutral colours like black and grey...but who could resist the messenger is Orange...

Looking at what was coming New into the furniture market - I checked out the Furniture Mart in Las Vegas - similair to the furniture show in Toronto but on a huge scale. A couple of our suppliers have come out with some awesome new orange pieces. This one was a stunner - I think Mario and I both looked and thought...OMG where could it go?
Talk about amazing, the details on this bed even if it was not in Orange is still spectacular.

One of my favorite pieces comes from Global Views - they are also know for quality pieces and are on the trend list in many of the top magazines - this wonderful desk is another of Mario and my OMG's and graced the cover of Neiman Marcus this past winter. The pale coloured wood - almost weathered looking is beautiful against the orange leather - again another keeper and something that would add such impact in a bedroom....Maybe Carrie from Sex and the City 2 would not have minded if Mr Big put the TV in this desk instead...
Last but not least ...I cannot leave without saying something about Fossil watches...now I know it is not furnishings - but i bought myself an Orange Fossil watch just before the holidays and it is complimented all the time - they have others which I just found on line and have been designed for Fossil from Philippe Starck....and again can I say.....OMG
