Giveaway- Kirkland's Gift Card!

Today, I am thrilled to announce a fabulous giveaway brought to you by Kirkland's.

Kirkland's is a leading specialty retailer of home decor in the United States and offers a vast selection of merchandise including framed art, mirrors, candles, lamps, picture frames, accent rugs, garden accessories, artificial floral products and more at affordable prices.

Imagine how excited I was when I was contacted by the wonderful people at Kirkland's to host this giveaway and was gifted a table lamp as well? Below is the Metallic Mercury Glass Table Lamp (valued at $59.99) I received recently.

From the looks of it, this table lamp look like any regular sized table lamp but in reality, it is oversized. What I like about huge, substantial lamps is they really make a big design statement anywhere you put it. This lamp is well made and I really love its natural textured lamp shade. I am planning to put this lovely lamp on my dresser in my master bedroom once our bedroom renovation is completed. 

By the way, Kirkland's has a new collection of beautiful table lamps and below are my favorites from their new line.

Now, my wonderful readers, you are in luck because Kirkland's generously offered one of Mix And Chic readers an opportunity to win a $50 gift card, which you can use towards your online purchase or in any Kirkland's store. You may use your credit to purchase a beautiful table lamp or towards these gorgeous items below (my personal favorites!):

Moodboard- Moodboard Challenge At Finishing Touch Interiors!

Time really flies and it's Monday again, and it's time for another 'Moodboard Monday Challenge' at Sarah's Blog, Finishing Touch Interiors. This week's challenge is 'Beauty Spa'.

To me, a beauty spa automatically conjures a feeling of tranquility and relaxation so I wanted to bring in some natural elements using natural river rocks as the focal wall and white pebbles as the flooring. I also chose a combination of modern and classic pieces for a fresh new look.  Here's what my moodboard look like. Let's take a look.

What are your thoughts? Do you like my vision of a stylish beauty spa? Sarah has invited other designers to join her in the moodboard challenge as well. If you want to see what she and other designers came up with, please click here.

As a reminder, Sarah will also be hosting an open challenge on Monday, February 6 with the Pink Challenge to help raise awareness for breast cancer. This challenge is open to everyone. Just send an email with your PDF moodboard and your details to Sarah at sarah@finishingtouchinteriors.co.uk by Friday, February 3. There will be a prize for a winner. Please click here for further details regarding the Pink Challenge. 

Have a great week!

Decorators' Show House & Gardens 2010!

Take a look at some of the most inspiring ideas and looks from the 40th annual Decorators' Show House & Gardens, situated in Buckhead's prestigious Tuxedo Park brought to you by 28 South's foremost design talents.

I am absolutely blown away by the talents of these designers. Each space is so different yet so chic and elegant. The most memorable rooms for me are the two bathrooms. I couldn't take my eyes and mind off that gorgeous gold sink, the lacquered trellised wall in persimmon and that luxurious yellow leather tufted door. Which space is the most inspiring to you? And which space do you find has the most memorable elements?
