Freshening up for the New Year!

   2011 is almost upon us... we had a fabulous year and hope you did, too! We think it’s always fun to start the New Year with a fresh new look in the home. It doesn’t mean you have to buy a whole new sofa or dining table set, (although we’d love to sell you one!)…. freshening up a room is as easy as adding a few new toss pillows on your sofa or bed.
      From frilly feminine to masculine (think recycled army tents), we have a wide variety of pillows in our showroom and more are on the way.   
     Speaking of the New Year, wouldn't it be fun to drink a little bubbly from these dotted champagne flutes. They also come in wine glasses. Cheers!
  Add even more sparkle to your New Year's Eve with one of our beautiful new necklaces. We just recieved a new batch that would add the perfect amount of glitz to a party dress.
   And it’s been chilly and windy lately.. we love bundling up in a cozy scarf. BTW, this is a great last minute gift for a special woman in your life... like a great necklace or bag, scarves always fit... no matter your size.

    The recent rains have made it so dark and dreary lately... it seems like I'm turning on all the lights no matter what time of day at my house. Brighten up this long winter with one of our gorgeous lamps. We have a fantastic variety right now.. you're going to want to take them all home.  
  We have every type of lighting imaginable.. chandeliers, pendants, table lamps, floor lamps.. And every style.. industrial metal .. sleek and shiny .... along with downright rustic.

   You can get a whole new energy in a stale room by changing out your lighting fixture.

   We are doing some freshening up ourselves in our Encinitas store right now. We sold most of our holiday decorations, took the Christmas tree down and we’ve completely redesigned the back half of the store. Here's a sneak peak..... come see the rest for yourself!
    We hope you had a fantastic 2010, we know we did... Our big highlight was opening our second store in Newport Beach at the end of May. If you haven't seen it yet, put it on your "to do" list for 2011, and be sure to stop by our neighbor Haute Cakes cafe to get a latte and a scrumptious pastry. For lunch we recommend their Chili Mac-n-Cheese. 
   Our Newport Beach store is at 1701 Westcliff Dr., Newport Beach, CA 92024 (949) 650-9900. The Grand Opening Party in September was super fun. We also had a blast at our Encinitas Anniversary party in October. We hope you'll join us for our special events next year, we have a few ideas floating around... stay tuned.. We hope you have a fantastic time over the holidays.
  Happy Holidays from your friends at Gardenology.
