The April issue of Elle Decor magazine is themed “the travel issue” and is full of luscious dwellings abroad. Capturing my heart is, of course, an apartment in Paris overlooking the Rue de l’Université on the Left Bank of the Seine. The apartment belongs to a glass and ceramics designer named Olivier Gagnère who has worked for Bernardaud among others. Ceramics are a particular passion of mine, and we were lucky enough to tour the Bernardaud factory in Limoges a few years ago. Peeking into the private home of one of their designers shows another facet of the creativity of this world. What a treat!

What I love: the liberal use of the colors lavender and tangerine; the striped Basque tablecloth (similar to our Saint Jean de Luz coated tablecloth); the wall collages of framed drawings, watercolors, and photographs; the bright red dinosaur perched above a cabinet; the pint-size kitchen with a full-size table set for four. These are among the best things in life…color, humor, breaking bread with friends. Wouldn’t you agree?

Look for our ad in the April issue coming out this week! Our ad is an all-new design in bright colors. Let us know what you think. Not only did we redesign the ad, we submitted it to the paper as a file in Photoshop’s format for the first time. Before, we would submit the ads as .jpgs, and they would basically recreate them. The printing came out really crisp and bright this time!

The Foothills Sentry is mailed to homes in East Orange, Orange Park Acres, Villa Park, Anaheim Hills, Cowan Heights, Crawford Canyon, Silverado/Modjeska Canyon Areas, and North Tustin. It is also distributed free at newsstands in Orange and elsewhere.

Foothills Sentry

The new issue of the Foothills Sentry is out. The Foothills Sentry is a local community newspaper that covers the neighborhoods between Orange and Tustin in Southern California.

Our ad normally runs in every issue, but this month if you turn to page 10 you will find an article about I Dream of France! You can view the entire newspaper online by going to the newspaper’s web site  http://foothillssentry.com/ and clicking on the paper’s cover.

We are expanding our advertising reach this week by publishing an ad in two Orange County Register community newspapers, The Orange City News and The Current. The Orange City News covers the city of Orange (obviously) and Villa Park.  The Current covers Corona Del Mar, Newport Coast, Newport Beach and Costa Mesa.

Our  ad is the same as the one we have been running in the Tustin News and the Irvine World News. It will run today in the Orange News and tomorrow in The Current. Take a look and tell us what you think….there is a coupon on the ad too! (Good in-store only, and not online or by phone).
