girl Vacuuming

Okay… So I’m the kind of woman that is very meticulous when it comes to the cleanliness in our home. I basically drive my family insane…Nevertheless, I believe that cleaning floors and other surfaces shouldn’t be a horrendous chore. A great working vacuum makes my role as a wife, working mom, and housekeeper pretty sweet.

Albany Central VacuumThe staff at Albany Central Vacuums are ready to help you with your purchase of a new vacuum or vacuum system.

Hide a Hose logo-colorFeaturing the Hide a Hose System, its easier, cleaner and faster! Albany Central Vacuum is an authorized dealer of Hide a Hose, now you can eliminate carrying (or storing!) a bulky hose up and down stairs or from room to room. Simply pull out the length of hose needed for the cleaning job, connect your choice of attachment, and begin vacuuming. It’€™s that easy. When finished, the system uses the suction from the central vacuum power unit to retract the hose back into the PVC tubing installed within the walls of the home.

There are 1000’s of vacuums out there, the staff at Albany Central Vacuum has 20 years combined experience, If you need an expert in the cleaning field, go to booth 352 at the Home Expo and ask for Miles, the manager of Albany Central Vacuum he’ll help you get the most suitable vacuum cleaner for you and your home.

Quatrefoil in design is basically a four-lobed shape and is usually a symmetrical pattern that repeats itself. It is classic with religious and architectural history.   My wonderful daughter Rosaria is just smitten with this design, our next project for her room will have to start shortly (she is still dealing with Aqua and Brown Damask, soooo done with that!!) so we are looking for a design we like. I thought I would do the quatrefoil on her ceiling in metallic silver over a  pale gray?? That’s were we are starting, she also would like to incorporate some purple in to this design.

So starting with inspiration…This great wall covering I found at our local Lowes I am so excited!!!! I would like to do the larger damask on her ceiling and maybe the back of her book shelf in the smaller pattern!!!

Of course I love this ceiling!!! this architectural product is purchased in tiles and installed as ceiling tiles. This product is on  Jay Haon Art and Design website.

This master sweet uses a strong yellow to balance out the grey. The quatrefoil mirror is one of my favorites, used with this wall paper and layering the quatrefoil design in this space, creates a great mix of patterns.

                                                                                               This Seabrook Wallcovering used here gives depth and color to this wall.                         Grey is one of the colors that we have worked with recently, in feng shui this color represents the metal element which brings sharpness, precision, clarity and efficiency!This armoire is so pretty, and with the mercury glass doors it adds that touch of WOW to any space! Quatrefoil is so prevalent in furniture design, from wood to fabric this timeless design is sure to stay!

Stay tuned…….

XOXO
