Wallpapers that Wow

We love to incorporate wallpaper into our design schemes. It can be very charming in a guestroom, powder room, a hall, a foyer… any room really! You just need to find the perfect paper for the space and create an appropriate balance between papered and painted walls in your home. If you really want to be dramatic, don’t stop with the walls – paper your closet door too. Or on the other hand, if you’re looking for a little less impact, frame a couple wallpaper panels and hang them as artwork. Or, even just apply paper to one accent wall… We were wowed with some of the papered spaces below. Have a look!…

The holiday wreath

The holidays are upon us! What a joyous time of year to get in full spirit – the attire, the music, the food, the drinks, the gifts and of course, the ambiance! There are so many ways to brighten your home with holiday spirit. Why not get started with a Christmas wreath? Hang one on your front door, over your garage, on the wall in your entry or hallway. It doesn’t have to be the standard green wreath with red bow, although you can’t go wrong with a classic! If you want to go a little bit more avant-garde, try an oversize wreath, or layering one wreath over another. Spray paint  your greenery with a metallic spray paint! Or go for something that is not greenery at all – pine cones, cinnamon sticks, jingle bells… There a so many options out there to make your wreath stand-out. See some of our favorite examples below…

Envious!..

So envious of Robin’s current status : The Viceroy, Anguilla!… She is soaking up the sun and the incredibly gorgeous ambiance. Not only is Anguilla’s landscape a little piece of heaven, the Viceroy itself, interiors designed by the likes of Kelly Wearstler, is a visual paradise. Have a look!…

An artist we love…

If you know Robin at all, you know she has a real talent for design.  And, it didn’t come from just reading every issue of Vogue, Veranda, House Beautiful and Vanity Fair.  If you ask her, she would give much of the credit to the truly talented and inspirational artist, Patricia McCarthy, a lady Robin also has the privilege of calling, Mom.

Mrs. McCarthy’s watercolor paintings capture all the charm and beauty of coastal New England.  We’ve used several of her pieces in clients’ homes and have sold even more here at Robin’s Nest.  Below you will see a small collection of her pieces.  And, believe it or not they are even prettier in person. Come down to the shop and see for yourself!…
