Champion Homes Gets Social

I just found out today  Champion Homes has a Facebook page that they are getting ready to add a lot of information and photos to. When I went to check it out, I found photos of the Lifestylist® Designed home we merchandised for them at the Tulsa show and heard that there will be more photos to come of the Texas Show. If you haven't "liked " this page yet be sure to do so - that way you'll be one of the first to see all of the exciting new changes.

The Lifestylist® Prepares for The State Fair of Texas

The weather has almost started cooling off which means it's State Fair time! The State Fair of Texas starts Sept 24th and goes through Oct. 17, 2010.

Cooking competitions are held every day and even if you don't enter, they are lots of fun to watch. All of the contests are held in the Creative Arts Building, and judging starts at 10:30.

This Lifestylist® loves competing in the different categories, but candy is my favorite. Last year I got me first blue ribbon and I couldn't be more proud.

Results are posted on the Big Tex site, and if you would like to try making some of the award winning recipes yourself, cookbooks are sold at the creative arts building featuring last years winners.

Shaw Living Debuts 2010 Area Rug Collections

Today is an absolutely perfect day The weather has cooled off to where I'm thinking about changing my home decor to suit the cooler temperatures. - it sounds like a lot of work, but a few changes can make all of the difference in how you enjoy your home. One of my favorite ways to warm things up is with area rugs.

One of my designers with Shaw Living just sent me a copy of their 2010 introductions and they are stunning! Whether you are looking for a bold, urban look or a more classic pattern they have something for you and the colors are right on trend.They also have rugs in their Ever-Touch yarns which feel amazing underfoot or make a great place to lay down and watch the football games.

With hard flooring surfaces becoming more popular every day, and area rug is a great way to add color and warmth. This is a model home for American Custom Builders that was Lifestylist® Designed, and you can see what a difference it made adding this Shaw area rug. It was a long, narrow space and the rug helped add color and define the space. In The Home Idea Factory I have summer rugs that are lighter and in more coastal textures, and in the fall I bring out my area rugs that are in deep, rich colors. Add a few new pillow covers and a throw on the sofa and I'm ready to go!
