THE VAN ET LOOK

Hair stylist Jon (Spiro) Hanjianto-
niou, of Jon's L'Atelier, was asked to
create a stylish look for an execu-
tive brunette named Vanet. "Since
my specialty is color and cut togeth-
er, I created a reddish-brown color
with highlights. The cut is easy to
take care of. It has several different
lengths and layers that all blend in
beautifully. The look is amazingly
European."
Jon has dubbed this cut the
"Vanet look," because he has had
many clients asking for the same
haircut and color.

FLEUR VARIEES

This romantic fabric by Schumach-
er, titled Fleur Variees, has a floral
bouquet and includes a bird's nest
and eggs. It was inspired by 17th-
century Dutch paintings and 19th-
century hand-painted porcelain.
"This is just one of the many de-
signer-label fabrics we carry," says
Tracey Henbury of The Finishing
Touch in Royal Oak.
The Finishing Touch uses the
fabric to repair, refinish and custom
design furniture. They also are
adept at painting, wallcovering and
making drapes. According to
Tracey Henbury, The Finishing
Touch is a full-service studio that
provides interior design consulta-
tions. "We can do it all. We can
make an old sofa look brand new."

Merchandise shown available at
The Finishing Touch, Royal Oak.

PRIVATE
SCREENING

Interior designer Tobyann Sneider
Pollak, of Sneider Interiors, wanted
to utilize the space in a large West
Bloomfield living room. "I covered
the space with a screen instead of a
painting. It provided a variety of
colors and textures," said Pollak.
In addition to being a decorative
piece, the screen can function as a
room divider. This Egyptian-in-
spired screen has purple and gold
accents carved into a black lac-
quered background.

Merchandise available through
Sneider Interiors, West Bloomfield.

THE GRAPES
OF GLASS

Steven Jackson and Henry Stuart,
of RPM studios in Pennsylvania,
create unique designs in glass.
Their hand-blown products are ex-
hibited across the United States and
in Europe. Locally their items are
available at Objects of Art in West
Bloomfield.
"They use vibrant colors and
unique styles," says Beverly
Thompson, owner of Objects of Art.
Objects of Art carries a large selec-
tion of RPM glass including vases,
bowls and goblets.

According to designer Steven
Jackson, fruits are the common
theme. "Our products are based
on fruit" In addition to the violet
grape bowl featured, they have
banana and apple bowls. They
even design stemware using
fruits and have incorporated
pumpkins and acorns. When
asked why fruit is their signature
style, Jackson replied: 'That's our
niche in a nutshell."

Merchandise shown above avail-
able at Objects of Art, Sugartree
Plaza, West Bloomfield.

ishing a proposal for a restaurant by
etching some flowers into glass.
Works from her portfolio include a
steel table with a glass top, a carved-
glass fireplace screen, a beveled
