Bramble Shipment Arrives!

We love Bramble and so do our Casabella shoppers, so you can imagine our excitement when the new container arrived! Not only is Bramble very affordable, but they have made a "commitment to the environment by planting trees and monitoring their survival rate." Since 2005, they have planted over 300,000 trees. 

I have included images of a few of our popular pieces. Below is the Roosevelt Buffet Sideboard. As you can tell, it has plenty of storage. 

The Octavia Dining Chair is painted grey. We have it paired with a black table and it looks great! 

The Fairlane Armchair has a contemporary wicker look. 

The green Tucker Six Legged Round Side Table would be a welcome addition to any room. 
The Shutter Plasma TV Stand would give your family room a comfy, cottage feel. 

You could store lots of things in the Veranda Triple Storage Tower...crafts, towels, get the idea.
And finally, this white Aries Dresser would be just the thing for any bedroom. 

We have many, many more pieces in the store...from tables to trays to dressers. They all have that "weathered Bramble" look that is admired by many. 
Come in soon and make your selection.


Vases provide a strong impact when used in various areas around your home. I have a large collection of McCoy vases that I have been acquiring for many years. In this post, I'll include several images of different ways that I have used them in my home. 

Space, balance, and color should be taken into account when displaying vases of different heights and styles. Below, I have pictured some of the McCoy vases from my collection. The mirror and the lamp provide a dramatic backdrop to showcase my vases. Using the stand helps to enhance the vignette by giving needed height.

A part of my collection is placed in a small bookcase located in a corner where I needed some color. Pictured below, I have included pictures and plates to add interest in that area. 
In another area I have displayed my cream McCoy that is paired with a brown ironstone plate. I prefer to keep my vignettes harmonious with their surroundings. The light wooden bookcase provides a wonderful backdrop for this cream colored vignette. 
Collections don't have to be complicated. Below, I have placed three vases of similar color on a shelf. This is an option I use when I don't want to hang a picture. This three dimensional option is appealing to the eye and and does a wonderful job "showing off" my collection. Notice how the curved lines in the vases and the plate are compatible with the curved lines on the shelf? 
I hope I have given you several ways to use vases in your decorating. We have many vases in the store that you could incorporate into your scheme. We would love to assist you and help you create your own vignette.
