The 12 Days of Christmas...Designer Style.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my designer did for me...

12 gifts for under your tree......
Merry Christmas from everyone at CRAIG OLSEN. 

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my designer did for me...

Vintage wall letters!

There are so many fun things you can do with these can stack them, place them all over a wall or two, or use them to spell something meaningful in your life: Family name, the names of your children, the city where you live...the list is endless!
Get Creative! These are a guaranteed conversation starter for any guest to your home.

On the tenth day of Christmas, my designer did for me...

Drapery Panels
Custom is always the way to go with window treatments. Of course you can buy them for a fraction of the price "out of the bag" but they just never quite look right or hang right. It's important never to ignore the windows! Roman panels with an overlay of drapery panels fill the space and make the room feel well dressed and warm.

Something creative to try - take an existing nook in your home -have a setee or seating bench custom made to fit into the niche perfectly then have some custom drapery panels made to help create an intimate space.

On the ninth day of Christmas, my designer did for me...

Coffee Table Books
Books are very important as they are a subltle way of sharing your interests with your guests, and are usually great conversation starters. From Fashion to Home decor, from pets to sports - the coffee table books are a must!

On the eighth day of Christmas, my designer did for me...

These beautiful pillows are eco friendly and made with water based ink on 100% unbleached cotton canvas.  Finished all raw edges with a professional overlocked edge with a matching colored hidden invisible zipper at the bottom end so the cover can easily be removed for washing.
