Stop by and see us at Bloom this weekend while you are at ART IN THE PARK in Boulder City...


...it isn't a secret...
...we know you always come to our darling little town...
...the first weekend in October...
...for Art in the Park...

...hello...
...that is this very weekend...
October 4th and 5th

...please stop in and say 'hi'...
...and see our new fall treasures...

...we just received our new supply of Tyler candles in Pumpkin Spice...
(...all we had to do was keep one lit each day for a while...
...and they sold out..)
...that is how wonderful Pumpkin Spice is...
...the spicy fragrance is divine...

...they come in three sizes...
...small($7.25), medium($14) and large($22)

...fall is probably our favorite season...
...we are so ready for this cooler weather...
...look around Bloom...
..perhaps we have the perfect item for your seasonal decorating...

...just in case you had forgotten...
...yes, we have a beautiful orange Chalk Paint®...
...by Annie Sloan...
...she has named it Barcelona Orange...
...here is how she describes this luscious color...

Think of a large ripe orange and this is the colour of Barcelona Orange. Apply dark wax and the colour becomes a luscious burnt orange. Its warmth and vivacity is a great accompaniment to neutral tones such as our greeny sludge colour, Chateau Grey or to the cool silveriness of Paris Grey as well as Aubusson Blue, its deep complementary partner. It is perfect for many interiors but particulalry with the 1960s vintage look.

...we have many other fragrances in our Tyler candle line...
...what is your favorite scent?...

...do come in and take a peek...

...we will be open 10am-5pm...
...we'd love to have you sign up for one of our workshops...

...Bloom on Charleston will also be open...
...10am-5pm...
(yes, we are moving...but we will be there for you!)

...coastal cottage or lake house chic...Old White and Provence...

...Provence Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan...
is one of our favorite colors...

...here is what Miss Annie says about her Provence...

Blue green shutters in the South of France are the inspiration for this colour. Set against walls of any of the whites. Provence needs light and bright fabrics with a Mediterranean and seaside feel. Other paint colours that work with Provence also need to have the same freshness and strength. Of course a cupboard painted Provence looks great against a wall of Old White.

...so, here we have combined both Old White and Provence...
...for a fresh whimsical look...

...a bit of chevron on the top...

...fun combination of the two colors...

...you might just want to pop in to Bloom in Boulder City...
...to take a peek...

...very sweet...
...a perfect little size...
...for a little girl or a big girl...
...so many possibilities...

...we at Bloom do feel very blessed...
...thank you to our lovely clients...
...who always have the nicest things to say...
...we appreciate you so very much...

...rustic with the perfect amount of chic...

...sadly, there are no 'before' photos...
...we promise to do better next time...

...the wood trim was painted with...
...Old Ochre Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan...
...then...
...we took it to our talented upholsterer...
...who did a fabulous job on it....

...it is so farmhouse chic...
...timeless...
...in this neutral classic ticking fabric...

...stop by Bloom on Charleston...
...to take a peek...
...and see what a quality piece it is...

...toss some of your own pillows on it...
...or try some of our new ones...
...just in from our very recent trip to market...

...can't you just see this gorgeous sofa in your home...
...it is comfy and cozy and charming...
...we are sure you will love it as much as we do...

...English Yellow Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan...we love it!

...here is what Miss Annie says about English Yellow...

This clean, vibrant yellow was popular in 18th century English decoration, most likely influenced by a yellow featured in hand painted Chinese wallpaper and the creation of Chrome Yellow pigment, which was first produced in the 19th century. It was the first non-earthy yellow produced, which made it very expensive at the time. The name of this color was inspired by the popularity of the original color in English drawing rooms. In the 1950s, this color became popular as a strong primrose.

...we think it is high style chic...
...paired with General Finishes Java Gel...
...on the top...

...this gorgeous color has great potential...
...to be mixed with other colors...
...which we LOVE to do at Bloom...

...we have tossed around this idea...
...see what you think...
...then perhaps you will agree that this lovely piece...
...belongs in your home...

...just picture this with a beautiful white vessel sink...
...perched on top...
...what a bold, happy statement...
...in someone's bathroom...
...you might want to stop in to see it...
...Bloom on Charleston...
...pssst...
...we are pretty sure it won't be around very long...
...call us...

Upscaling with 'Old White' and Java Gel ...we love painting with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan!

...we loved the lines and detail of this little buffet...

..but it was a little dark and dreary...

...so we started with a first coat of 'Old White'...

...not wanting to cover all of the dark...

...so the cute detail on the drawers would pop...

...and then a light second coat of old white..

...still leaving some dark showing through...
...showcasing the sweet details...

...a little more distressing...
...and we are loving the result...

...General Finishes Java Gel Stain...
...gave the top a nice finish...
...to contrast with our 'Old White'...

...finally it is all done and dry...
...and a lovely addition to the front room...
...of Bloom in Boulder City...

...do you like the upscale look?...
...painting this piece was so easy with Annie Sloan paint...
...everyone has fallen in love with it...
...we knew it wouldn't stay around long...
...and just as we suspected...

...it left the shop yesterday...
...purchased as a birthday gift...
...for one very happy gal!...
...we will miss it...
...but already there is a new piece in its place...
...you need to come in and check it out...

...and now we want to tell you about two brand new workshops...
