    A Peek Into A Time Honored Artistry:


leslie-rascoe“I am a firm believer that any day at the beach is…well, it’s better than just about anything!

I wish I could bottle the feeling of excitement, waking before dawn with the realization that I’ve made it to my peaceful place. Before the sun even thinks about rising, I bound out the door, headed straight to the sand for a walk and exploration. I’m constantly inspired by nature, but especially by coastal areas.” – Leslie Newsom Rascoe

Over the years I’ve amassed quite a collection of artifacts from beloved beach trips. I keep these objects close to me…so close, in fact, I’ve started decorating around them!

  Going Coastal - 1

You would be hard pressed to find a room in my home without some sort of shell, rock, sea glass or driftwood. I treasure these objects for the memories they recall, but also because they invoke a feeling of organic, light-filled spaces I associate with living on the water.

We are hours from the coast, yet our home could easily be transported to Nantucket, the South Carolina Lowcountry or Catalina Island. I tend to keep the interior palette white, layering in furniture pieces that complement a more relaxed, coastal feel.

“A home should be a reflection of who you are no matter where you live, so for this beach girl, ‘Going Coastal’ is a way of life!”

Nonprofit Friend: Thai Christian Foundation

Am Kop_blogLawa-Wa Ministry is an outreach project supported by the Thai Christian Foundation. In 2012, they launched the Prosthetics Project to help those along the Thai-Burma border receive prosthetic limbs. Last year, Lawa-Wa Ministry helped Am Kop, a six-year-old girl suffering from tuberculosis and kyphosis, receive surgery and treatment, as well as get her a donated wheelchair to help her mobility. This month, with your help, we’re working to support Thai Christian Foundation in their efforts to give financial assistance to children like Am Kop in the future.

We would like to partner with you, our customer, in an effort to provide necessary resources for Lawa-Wa Ministry and Thai Christian Foundation to continue their endeavors. On April 10, 2016, Wisteria will give 10% of your entire purchase to Thai Christian Foundation and you will get 10% off your purchase. Use promo code THAICHRISTIAN16 at checkout. Help out!

Nonprofit Friend: Millions from One

Millions from One is a nonprofit organization created to provide clean water and antimicrobial shoes to those in need. With a clear vision of providing sustainable solutions that meet basic living needs, they work to build community, promote education, and provide hope to the hopeless all over the world.

Millions From One

Water is at the heart of a daily crisis faced by almost a billion of the world’s most vulnerable people, especially children. This crisis threatens life and destroys livelihoods on a devastating scale. Nearly 90 percent of all diseases in the world are caused by unsafe drinking water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene. This is a silent crisis experienced by the poor and tolerated by those with the resources, technology, and power to end it. To save millions of lives by providing long-term clean water, along with education and hygiene training, to those most in need across the world, Millions from One’s current outreaches include drilling deep-water wells and the manufacture of antimicrobial shoes—both giving life and filling needs to those in desperate situations.

Why shoes? Over 3 billion people live on the equivalent of $2.50 or less per day, meaning that many of life’s basic needs go unmet. The majority of the world’s poor must walk where they go, and an estimated 2 billion people are currently afflicted with parasitic diseases, most preventable with the right shoes. Currently serving 59 countries, Millions from One is changing the lives of millions one at a time.

Millions from One

In 2014, we helped Millions from One build a deep-water well in Burundi. This year, we’ll help provide basic necessities, along with clean water and antimicrobial shoes, to an orphanage in Nepal that was first devastated and then destroyed by earthquakes. Millions from One recently adopted this orphanage—quickly finding a new building so the children were no longer living in makeshift tents. We hope our combined efforts, with your help, will allow this orphanage and the children who live there continue to be successful.

We would like to partner with you, our customer, in an effort to provide necessary resources for Millions from One to continue their endeavors. On March 10, 2016, Wisteria will Give 10% of your entire purchase to Millions from One and you will Get 10% off your purchase. Use promo code MILLIONSFROMONE16 at checkout. Help out!

Styling a Console 3 Ways with Jana Bek

Jana Bek of Jana Bek Designs knows how to make a house a home through creating a compelling, balanced space. She also has an eye for style on a budget and can transition one piece seamlessly from room to room. From sophisticated large homes to stylish studio apartments, Bek proves that her talented design eye knows no bounds. We’re excited to share a bit of Bek’s wisdom with you as she styles The Disappearing Console 3 different ways!

When designing for clients or myself I opt for incorporating versatile furniture, pieces that can serve multiple purposes, whenever possible. This route affords you the option to switch up your spaces as your tastes change.

This lovely lucite console is the perfect example of a piece with range. As soon as I saw it I imagined the endless ways in which I could use it in our new Atlanta apartment. Here are my three takes on composing this console:

An Elegant & Easy Entry

Easy Entry | The Disappearing Console
Get the Look: The Disappearing Console // Vase (similar) // Baskets (similar) // Art (similar) // Buoy (similar)

To create an entry with some pop, paint a focal wall a punchy hue. Here, Benjamin Moore’s Key Largo green helps highlight the silhouette of the console. With the addition of some seagrass baskets, clutter is contained.

Beautifully Balanced Buffet

The open shelves are perfect for putting your dinnerware on display. Simple styling on the top shelf can be removed for entertaining with ease.

Best Bar Cart

The length of this console makes it a perfect celebration station. A set of drink dispensers allows everyone to help themselves. This console is relatively lightweight so you can move it easily, I can’t wait to use it as an impromptu bar cart for alfresco entertaining!

I could also envision this console serving as a media stand or sofa table – it really is versatile! Next time you are in the need for new piece, I hope these looks will inspire you to look for one with possibilities!
