Design Inspired by St Lucia!

St Lucia is a gorgeous place that is more than just a stop on a Caribbean cruise. The landscape includes beaches filled with palm trees, their unspoiled rainforest, the Piton Mountains, and tons of waterfalls. St Lucia is rated one of the most romantic destinations in the world and I can see why! The next few images of St Lucia inspired me to find lighting, rugs, and fabric that captured the scenery of St Lucia.  You, too, can incorporate this island feel in your home.

Imagine looking out into the ocean of St Lucia. By incorporating this rug with the colors of the ocean and mountains into a room, you could be on St. Lucia every day!

St Lucia has a very natural architectural design that blends in with the landscape. This chandelier ties in perfectly.

Stefani’s Week in Pics

Hello! Here’s my first week in pics! I’m the newest kid on the block here at BHD. I recently relocated from Knoxville, with the husband, and so far I am loving Nashville and thrilled to be a part of the team at BHD. We have been exploring all that the city has to offer so I’m sure, that will be reflected in my pics!

I recently celebrated having a paycheck again by enjoying the delicious veggie ramen at Two Ten Jack. There was even a break in the heat and we dined outdoors!

The crispy brussel sprouts are also amazing.

There was a double rainbow in our neighborhood!

I made a quick trip to the Asian market down the street to pick up these tasty treats!

Which meant curry noodles for dinner!

I planted some fun flowers to add a little color to the front yard!

And found a little friend in the process.

I had the ‘good fortune’ to see a friend from Knoxville while she was in town. We tried out Miss Saigon! Their curry was way better than mine!

My dog, Peanut, was excited to have a visitor in town too! We met new friends for game night and he got to tag along for a doggie playdate. He was exhausted by the time we got home and did his typical ‘cool down’ routine of sprawling across the hardwood floor as soon as we walked in the door!

After some world cup watching in the 12 South area, the husband and I headed to Las Paletas to try another flavor! I love anything pistachio! It might be dangerous that its so close to the office.

Typically, I’m not a sports fan. Quite the opposite. But every four years that all goes out the window during World Cup time! I love to watch the international teams compete and all the hustle and bustle surrounding the games is just so much fun! I’ve been catching as many games as I can, which is a little hard with our work schedule. We meet up with a few friends to watch the US vs Portugal match last Sunday. What a game!

But my favorite moment so far was the start of the tournament when one of my favorite players pulled off a hat trick in Germany’s first game! (if you’re not a soccer fan, that means he scored three goals during one game.) Way to go Müller!!!

Window Treatments!

Window treatments are an important feature, in almost, any interior space for privacy purposes and sun exposure. They also help in setting a style or personality of a space. Here at Beth Haley Design, we most often use roman shades or drapery panels for our window treatment needs.

Roman Shades are similar to blinds in the way the function, on a clutch or cord system, but give a window more of a finished look. They can be very casual by using solid linen or cotton fabric or more formal and playful by using patterns and different designs.

Romans come in a few different styles and operation. They also can be either inside mounted or outside mounted, on the window.  Below are a few examples.

Drapery panels are a great way to add beauty and a statement to a rooms design. Functioning panels also can act as a great way to darken a room. There are many considerations to think about when deciding on panels; how high to hang them, how close to the floor they will be, how far past the window will they go, what kind of lining do they need, etc. Also a big consideration, with drapery panels, is the style!
