New art gracing the walls of Laurie’s this week in the form of beautiful botanicals.

Colors from the natural palette of nature…golds, browns, greys, yellows, greens and able to compliment an array of styles ranging from contemporary to eclectic to anything you want. That’s the beauty of art that depicts nature– it’s very versatile and brings life to a room.

Luscious texture and finishes, these new pieces are the *perfect* accessory to turn your walls into galleries worthy of any critic’s review.

Texture– next to color– maybe the most important component of building the

look and “feel” of a room’s design.

The texture of leather really should have it’s own category.

Give a room a sophisticated, cozy, masculine, earthy, glamorous…. feel by adding a piece here and there.

Laurie’s brings you leather furniture of all textures, colors, shapes, and forms.

Wingbacks, ottomans, sofas, recliners, even an a leather armoire!

And to make it extra special- grommets, embroidery, aged leather, sleek leather, complimenting pillows to enhance that texture we want to bring to that living room, office, den….

There are so many ways to introduce this beautiful natural material into any grouping.

Couple any piece with distressed wood, cowhide, canvas art, greenery, and watch your space pop with a special look.

As you can see below, we carry Christmas accessories that compliment all those gorgeous leather goods and make  you feel like you are vacationing in the Adirondacks!

From time to time, Laurie’s will feature the home of a

local shopper to help give you a little peep inside what others are doing with some of her finer things.

For our 1st installment of “Welcome Home” Wednesday we will visit the home of

Laurie’s own photographer, April of April Pizana Photography in Cypress.

What is your color palette?

I try to stick with 3 basic colors and 1 neutral. For me- Lighter shade of green,

gold, and black. Cream is my neutral.

Console, lamps, art pieces, mirror, and Currey chandelier from Laurie’s.

What major influences does your house incorporate?

From the time  we moved to this home and began renovating in 2007,

I felt that it had a French Country flair about it.

Although I have been known to throw in an eclectic piece now and then- I mostly choose pieces that have a European feel.

I think it’s my passive-aggressive way of saying I want to go to Europe!

What is your approach to home design?

I’m not a designer/decorator by trade but I try to stick to some basics when putting my home together….

*Keep it simple

*Just because it’s beautiful does NOT mean it will work and that you should have it.

*For core pieces- invest in items that are classic and versatile for your space.

This comes in handy if you are making a major investment because you will be able to use the piece in different areas if need be.

*Match-but don’t Match! Coordinate pieces with different textures, variances of your color palette, size…but try not to match everything perfectly.

* Walk away from a piece for 15 minutes- and if you still love it after refreshing your senses — then you know it’s a good choice

(but beware buyer– if you are shopping at Laurie’s you might be in trouble b/c it’s possible that it just not be there in 15 minutes!)

* Finally, don’t be afraid to introduce trendy pieces into your design.

It’s these key elements that can bring a certain something that makes your room have a WOW factor.

Check back now and then to see more homes featuring Laurie’s products for “Welcome Home” Wednesday!

So if you’ve never had the chance to take a walk through Laurie’s – now might be a good time

to become acquainted with this Tomball treasure.

Besides Thanksgiving is done and you’re ready to get down to the business at hand

— CHRISTMAS —

so let’s talk about serious goodies to put under your tree.

Like the “honey, I’ve been a really good girl this year” kind of serious!

Take a virtual little walk and see what Auntie Laurie has today…

Take a look at these ever popular linen, slip-covered parson chairs that are one of our biggest sellers.

Versatile, neutral, and realistic — these chairs combined with the natural pieces made from re-claimed wood are a nice way

to bring a sense of peace and balance to any room of the house.

Special dishes, chargers, pretty much the entire place setting to dress up your table.

Laurie’s also carries an array of lighting– chandeliers, sconces, and lamps to make the rest of your rooms giddy with delight.

Whether you buy them for that pop of color, added texture, or comfy sitting,  pillows are a key element in bringing together the style of a room.

Changing pillows in and out with the season can bring a fresh perspective to your mood and house.

As seen in this months Traditional Home Laurie stocks Daniel Stuarts luxury linens.

Speaking of pretty, shiny things… more Christmas inventory is flying out the door.

And we just received a pair of lovely mirrored back occasional chairs by John Richards.

Surely an  indulgent buy worthy of placement next to your well decorated Christmas tree.
