Great Advertisements ~ Grace Home Furnishings




When you read and look through as many
design magazines as I do (I have an addiction),
you start to gloss over the not so exciting
ads in the magazines. Some, however, really
stand out because they are so well done.

Recently, a reader asked me about a small photo
I have under inspirational rooms to the left of
my posts. This photo is actually a room from
an adverstisement from Grace Home Furnishings.
The above room is one of my favourites from
their ads. I love everything about the room and
how well put together it is.


Grace Home Furnishings in L.A. Grace
is the late dog of the owners.


You can see Grace in many
of their advertisements.






These turquoise rooms are currently
used on their website. Even their products
are beautifully photographed.








This is a photo from one of the latest
ad they've been running in some of the
design magazines. Of course, now that
I need that ad, I can't find it.

What do you think of their ads?

They always have gorgeous ads - someone there definitely has a good eye for colour!

Alkemie said...

I totally agree that someone there definitely has an eye. The way they incorporated their dog was also so classy. Thanks for the comments gals! I always enjoy them :)

Acaligurl - I totally forgot today was St Patrick's too! I'm Chinese but my Fiance is Irish so that means our children would be 1/2 Irish and 1/2 Chinese just like you!

Hee, I'm not the only one who has ripped out the Grace adds for inspiration! I only have the one with the turquoise bed with brown accents, so it's cool to see their other looks. Fun!

LondonCalling said...

I've been wondering about the picture you have on the sidelines with the zebra chairs and the charcoal wallpaper? Is that Grace Home? BTW- love the ads too!

corine said...

i agree entirely. this is an advertising campaign that stands out.

Alkemie said...

Wow! I'm glad to see such a response that others love their ads as much as I do!

London Calling - thanks for coming by! That room actually has deep chocolate brown wall papering and is desinged by Kenneth Brown. I'm doing a post on him coming up. He's really great!

Simply Grove- Thank you! I've added you as well to my blogroll :)

Advice in old age is foolish; for what can be more absurd than to increase our provisions for the road the nearer we approach to our journey's end.
