POP UP will reopen on Valentine's Day!

I have exciting news! I am reopening the Pop Up art gallery on February 14th, 2018. This go around promises to be even more visually stimulating and creatively interactive. The gallery space will be filled with vibrant new art, old favorites, textiles and prints. I am excited to add to the fun with two designers!! Textiles by Mira Jean Designs and Nicole Lanteri’s Design Lab

Mira Jean Designs and Nicole Lanteri Design are creating cool vignettes around the gallery that highlight their creative offerings.  Kate Hougen of Mira Jean Designs will debut her new Spring line of textiles...and wallpaper!  Nicole is debuting two new design services to complement her full service design company -- Design Lab and Design Kit are a more accessible way for homeowners to get design help.  


Join us on Valentine’s Day for opening night and meet the artist and designers from 6-8pm. If you can’t make it, there is still plenty of time, Sabrina’s Pop-Up is open thru mid-May.  Please follow me on Facebook , Instagram , twitter and pinterest or go to my website for pop up updates.

I have extra easels for drop-in painting. I will supply you with a 16 x 20 canvas, acrylic paint and brushes ($25 fee) or bring in your own materials (no charge). Challenge starts tomorrow. Wish me luck.


Dramatic Powder Room

Everyone should have a killer powder room. It is the one room your guests will see, so make an impact. Here is a friend’s powder room, which I completely adore. This small eclectic space mixes old and new--the modern white fixtures combined with a vintage brass and crystal chandelier and art deco mirror create a little jewel box . I love the way she placed a large painting, my “Flower Girl II," in a tiny space. The lovely eccentric rug from Anthropologie complements the painting and ties the room together.

If you are think of sprucing up an old powder room, consider interesting wallpaper or a vibrant dark paint color. A powder room is your opportunity to go wild! Embrace the drama!!

These are some of the powder rooms that I love and find inspiration from!
