RAINY DAY ENCOURAGEMENT

With all of the rain we’ve experienced this season and forecasts of more to come , it became pretty evident to us that this month’s edition of the Wall could provide a public service by celebrating some of the benefits of wet weather.

If necessity is the mother of invention then a strong case can be made pointing to inconvenience and its role in encouraging opportunity. Many of the design products that we love and draw inspiration from today were developed to protect and shelter us from minor annoyances like inclement weather.

Rough weather brings families together. Storms provide a catalyst for people to reach out be phone and check in on friends and loved ones that are away. Inclement outdoor conditions give us unspoken permission to stay inside and recharge our batteries.

We’d love to hear ideas on turning rainy days into opportunity. Write to us at feedback@creativewallcoverings.com


BEHIND THE WALL
At CWI we want you to know when we say we handle all the details – we mean all the details. Many of the products that we will bring you in each edition of the WALL are in stock or readily accessible to us for customization, we know that there will always be some that are not. Please do not hesitate to ask us about any products that you see featured in the newsletter even if they are products that we do not carry.

Your CWI Staff Designer will HANDLE THE DETAILS for you in obtaining products sourced in the WALL or for that matter any magazine or website that has something that you absolutely love. And, by purchasing your products from CWI, we will be able to provide an on-site consultation to make sure that everything will fit just right and provide you with guidance with the accessories that you will want to include with your new acquisition.

THE SOFTER SIDE OF RAIN

Rain brought out a mellow side in Madonna, clashing with her usual bad girl attitude. The video for Rain was filmed entirely in black and white; the colors you see were hand painted during post production. It went on to win an award for best art direction in a music video.

Scent and sight combine for a truly stylish home(ARA) – Whether your home is an expression of clean-lined modernism in stainless steel and glass or a warm and worn harmony of earth tones and antique furnishings, an often-overlooked element of home style is the unseen atmosphere that you breathe. Customizing a unique palette of aromatic style is an expression of your personal taste.

More importantly, if you want a home that’s toxin-free, you’ll want to select fragrance options carefully, and not choose synthetic options. Synthetic scents are often very obtrusive and lack the subtle nuances of 100 percent pure essential oils.

When you find an essential oil blend suited to your style, it’s easy to incorporate the scent into one or more natural and stylish home scenting options. For more information about using essential oils in your home, visit www.auracacia.com.

Fabric freshening mist

Combine 4 ounces water and 24 drops of the oil blend in a small spray bottle. Shake vigorously and lightly mist curtains and upholstered furnishings.

Candle lamp diffusion

Ingredients:

1/4 cup water

10 to 12 drops essential oil blend

Directions

Place 1/4 cup water in bowl of diffuser lamp. Add 10 to 12 drops of the oil blend. Light candle and warm the liquid to release the aroma.
