Coastal living room with a cottage feelHave you thought about bringing a little pouf into your life? More importantly, into your home? These floor pillows are the perfect accessory for any family room or living room. They add a fun design element and double as a little extra seating. Who wouldn’t mind that? They’re especially great for all those entertainers out there!

In design, it’s the little things that count and a pouf can be used as a great accent in any space. They can add texture, color, or even act as a little extra filler in a large room. Tight on space or budget? No problem! These little guys are what you’re looking for! And when they’ve served their purpose or are no longer needed, you just pick up and move them out. Take a look at the poufs used these photos! They look great right??

:: Painting Pumpkins ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

If you’ve picked up this month’s Country Living, or even been onto Pinterest once in the last week, you’ve seen plenty of pumpkins, Halloween decor and Halloween food. October is the start of the pumpkin season and we’re ready for some pumpkin pie! This Halloween season Country Living sparked the paint your pumpkin trend and it has taken off. They even had a contest for the Best Halloween Pumpkin. They’ve made Halloween a little less messy and a lot more creative. This way you don’t have to cut open the pumpkin and go through that whole ordeal. Also I don’t know about you, but my knife and pumpkin carving skills aren’t even close to as good as my painting skills. I’ll stick to the brush and paints. By painting the pumpkin it gives you so many more options and allows you to bring in more colors other than the typical black and orange. You can free hand paint on it, paint a pattern on it, or stencil a design on the pumpkin. This opens up so many different avenues for you to get creative. Don’t get us wrong though, we love the classic jack-o-lantern and the pumpkin seeds it yields. There’s no replacement for that, but why limit yourself there? Get creative and have fun this Halloween.





:: Pageant of the Masters – The Genius ::

Feature Friday

Tonight is the last night to go see the 2012 Pageant of the Masters! Get your tickets and be there at 8:30PM sharp! You won’t want to miss this beautiful display of art! For those of you that don’t know what the Pageant of the Masters is, it’s ninety minutes of “living pictures” – incredibly faithful art re-creations of classical and contemporary works with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces. An outdoor amphitheater, professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, sophisticated lighting, expert staff, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers have won recognition for the Pageant as the best presentation of its kind. This annual event is held right here in beautiful Laguna Beach, California. Since the Festival of the Arts occurred in 1932, the Pageant of the Masters’ first presentation started in 1933. The event is held each summer and lasts for eight stunning weeks of amazing displays of art.

This years Pageant theme is “The Genius.” As the Festival of Arts celebrates its 80th birthday, the Pageant of the Masters will pull back the curtain on The Genius. Acclaimed for its awe-inspiring theatrical celebration of tableaux vivants – “living pictures” – the 2012 Pageant will once again showcase classic works by some of the extraordinary masters who galvanized art history. In addition, it will also explore the fascinating and unpredictable relationship between art and technology with a cavalcade of masterpieces illustrating how breakthroughs in different fields have also altered the path of art history and the way we see the world. From the glories of the Italian Renaissance to the deeply personal imaginings of modern masters, The Genius will fill the Irvine Bowl with breathtaking theatrical recreations of memorable artworks. And, an acknowledged work of genius, Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper,” will return as our traditional finale. You won’t need to be a rocket scientist to enjoy The Genius, which promises to be fun and inspiring.

The video below will give you a better idea of what to expect if you don’t know what the Pageant of the Masters is. It’s a lot easier to show someone then to read about it!
