Casart Wall Coverings

Our signature colors and patterns are now available as removable, reusable wall coverings thanks to our new partnership with Casart Coverings, llc.

Casart offers Karen’s designs in wall coverings  to complement her marine-themed home elements. Designs include rope knots, nets and marine inspired designs plus a clever concept for using 3 to 24 inch wide solid-colored stripes to achieve a striped effect -- all without needing to tape, meaure or paint.  A single color or a combination of colors can result in a two-colored or three-colored design. These can be installed vertically or horizontally by peeling off the backing sheet and sticking to the wall with the wallcoverings' pressure sensative, self adhesive that makes it easy for installation and to reposition, 
remove and even reuse.

Surprise Photo Shoot

The week following High Point Marketweek has been exciting and exhausting. So many new projects are underway and we have been overflowing with creative new ideas. 

We spent a full day staging Karen's house for a huge photo shoot.

Sally, our secret shopper, found these fabulous orange oars for us. They were exactly what we needed for the dock photo shoot.

Thanks Sally, we couldn't do it without you!

The weather has been blustery and overcast today and the birds just love it. The back yard and lake has been fluttering with snowy white egrets and great blue herrings.  We took a few minutes this afternoon to watch an anhinga do a balancing act against the wind on one of the slippery oars.

Guests in our High Point Living Room

Wednesday we had a visit from some of our most fabulous customers - the ladies from Casa Miscellany in Panama City, Panama. They were here stocking up for the opening of their second decoration and gift store.

They say our art is "beautiful to show, they sell by themselves."

Thanks for stopping by ladies.

And thank you to everyone who came to see us this week. Its been exciting and exhausting and we can't wait to do it again!

 Christina, Liz and Maria find a comfortable place to relax for a moment in our booth.

Karen's top three favorite booths

In the brief moments when our booth is not bustling with fabulously dressed designers and shop owners, Karen and I slip away to do our own High Point perusing. 

Below are Karen's faves. See what she has to say about these three lovely artist's and their work.

Ari Millner's old prints are inspirational and I love all the little hidden gems and collectables you can find there. He always has something new.

Oh wow, she's just so fabulous. Her museum quality botanicals are beautiful. I bough two of the largest ones for a client of mine.

These books are so fun and functional. They can be stacked under a lamp to add height, tucked on a shelf for a pop of color. There is a wide variety and something for every home.

Sunday at High Point

Yesterday was an exciting day. We were honored with a red ribbon cutting ceremony in celebration of our show debut. Look for the pictures in the Home Accents Today later this week. 

Also Karen was interviewed by Trowbridge Gallery - the number one supplier of fine art reproductions, who will be reproducing some of Karen's originals. We are excited about the new partnership and looking forward to working with them.

Thanks to everyone who has come by our booth already, your positive responses have been so inspiring.

Our flag was featured in the DC By Design Blog. Check it out.
