It’s in the Bag

by Nicki on May 11, 2017

Feel strongly about your bed sheets? I do and so does Cozy Earth Bedding.

They are a small company who does NOT mass produce their bedding products.

Their core values are to create the most comfortable and long lasting bedding in the world by using bamboo and silk .

The sheets are eco friendly, temperature regulating and allergy reducing.

“Cozy Earth sheets are extremely soft and the comforter doesn’t trap heat like down can. It keeps two people who have different body temperature comfortable. It’s really the most comfortable bedding I’ve ever had. “

Being Authentic; Are you for real?

by Nicki on May 27, 2015

Being at the Southern C Summit  always gets our heads spinning with new ideas. It is a yearly conference attended by

•online influencers •social media junkies •creative entrepreneurs •seasoned business owners •new business owners •bloggers of many forms including food, family, fashion, lifestyle, designers, event photographers and artists.

Checking in with each other and regrouping is really important for us. Here are some take away ideas about staying authentic to your brand and essentially yourself…


1. From the onset of the idea of Embellish Interiors we have stated that we are

“Doing this until its not fun anymore.” 

We got this. It’s still a blast and no day is the same.

Our poor intern has no idea what to expect when she shows up and frankly neither do we!

2. We know who we are.

Our partnership works. Ask anyone who works with us- it just does. We never had a conversation about who would do what,

it just naturally evolved and now its apparent whose better at what tasks.

3.  We have fleeting moments

when we get carried away and think we should be collaborating, blogging 24-7, instagraming, face-booking , pinteresting,

coming up with a product, etc.  and then we relax and realize that’s not us. We are good at design and working with people

who need help making their spaces look better.  We are also, most importantly, mother’s and wives and friends and tennis

players (kinda) and we want to live a balanced life.



4. There’s no need to keep up with the Jones’.

  It’s so inspiring what all these people are doing and we watch in awe of the instagram feed of some of the people we follow.

  We’re cool.  We are the Embellish Girls and our goal is to provide great service and continue our good reputation.


5. It’s good to play.

Here we are at the Summit meeting new people and of course finding some cocktails! Afterall, we are lucky to have our own

business and make our schedules and we are always happier and more motivated after we have taken some time off.

Standing On An Arabesque Rug

by Nicki on November 19, 2014

From where we stand…


       Standing on the Arabesque Rug in the Global Views Showroom. There is just something to be said for the clean lines and simplicity of a geometric rug.   These rugs combine a rich and textural surface and the large geometric pattern offers a big visual impact 

When adding an Arabesque Rug to your home try to add one or two period pieces of furniture to create a more eclectic look.  The combination of the modern rug with time worn pieces makes a much warmer space. 

Check out more of these beautiful Global Views Arabesque rugs below and see how amazing they can look!

  This hide rug from Yerra creates a great tone on tone look.  The geometric design is subtle but interesting. Why we love area rugs in general: Area rugs always ground a space so we like to use them to set the style or palette for the room.   An easy way to find an area […]
