Pin-Up Curls Hosts Prom Night, Grown-Up Style!

If you’re looking for a date night that breaks up the ho-hum dinner and a movie routine, you need to mark your calendar for April 22nd. The Pin-Up Curls salon will be hosting an adult masquerade prom at the Fort Wayne Country Club to benefit the Livestrong Foundation, and it’s going to be a blast! I met with Erin Raber, owner and “head curl” of Pin-Up Curls to get the highlights of what they’re planning for the event and found out that this group goes above and beyond to have fun with their clients.   “We love all our guests, and we like to think of them as family, not clients. To keep the salon family-oriented, we celebrate days and events that remind us of our families and family traditions. We love to dress up and decorate the salon. Last Halloween, we turned the salon into a story book and dressed up as characters like Pinocchio, Tinker Bell, and the Big Bad Wolf! On Fridays, we host birthday parties for little girls and their buddies. We also love to do style parties. This is a night to teach our guest and her friends ways to care for and style their hair. They are so much fun!”     If you’re looking for a fresh new look, you need to check out what the talented staff at Pin-Up Curls can do.

Abode: A trendy home decor boutique in Leo?!

I’ll admit it – Leo-Cedarville, Indiana may not be the first place that comes to mind when searching for inspiring and fresh home décor. You might not expect that the little gray house on Center St. in the heart of Leo’s downtown holds such unique and stylish pieces, but one glance from the outside draws you in! Owner and interior designer Carey Burchfield and her husband Nick completely remodeled this pre-1900s home and transformed it into their chic new home store called Abode Design + Decor. I sat down with Carey to chat about how it all came about. Walk me through the process of the transformation this house has undergone? Abode came about because I’ve always wanted a retail design storefront. A little over a year after finishing our own 2 year farmhouse remodel, I drove by this run down little home right on the major highway thru town and close to my home. I could instantly see the potential for the building and the location for a business/design storefront. After viewing the space with my husband, who seemed much more enthusiastic than I expected, we decided that this quaint 900 sq. ft. home was nothing compared to the renovations we had done on our own home. We jumped and took a leap of faith. Renovations took us about 8 months. One area even required a chain saw to cut out the existing unlevel floor joists (which were actually just tree trunks). The floors are all the original hardwood dating pre-1900.       It’s a space that you have to see in person to appreciate. My goal was to create an environment where as soon as clients walk through the door they immediately fall in love. My favorite thing about the store is the furniture, are some of these restored vintage pieces? I like furniture that catches my eye, just something in my gut that says I’m beautiful, take me home! If the furniture needs a facelift that doesn’t scare me. Furniture I buy for the store, whether classic or unique, needs to be relevant to today’s design trends. I need to be able to envision it either in my own home or a clients. I definitely want people to find one of a kind pieces in my store that they can’t get anywhere else. Do you offer interior design services if someone wanted to recreate this type of look in their own home? I offer design services for any type of style a client has. I like to get a feel for what my clients are looking to accomplish in their homes, how they use their...
