ST-JOHN'S, NL, Nov. 28 /CNW/ - Imagine this: a collectible new home décor
item that can actually change with the seasons.
Jellybean Row is a series of wall hangings that celebrates the colourful
Victorian heritage homes of downtown St. John's, Newfoundland. The debut
series of 10 images are modeled after real homes on some of the oldest streets
in North America. They are printed on acid free paper using light fast inks,
then laminated and plaque mounted, ready for easy hanging. Because there are
no frames, the pieces can be placed together, creating a genuine 'row house'
"The Victorian look of the homes lends a touch of warmth and tradition to
the coolest contemporary color scheme," said company director Geoff Meeker,
"and the bright colors will energize any room."
That's not all - the series has been reissued for Christmas. "We've added
snow, lights, decorations and a subtle dusk light that brings out the warm
glow of an old-fashioned family Christmas," Meeker said. "Collectors can
switch out the original series for the Christmas series as the holiday season
approaches. When properly lit, the windows glow as if powered from within. It
instantly, almost magically, changes the look of a room."
Jellybean Row is available in two sizes. The small size (5" wide by 8.5"
deep) is ideal for smaller rooms, hallways or as an accent anywhere. The large
series (9" by 16.5") works as an artistic centerpiece, anywhere you would hang
a piece of fine art. They also work on a diagonal, adding personality to
stairwells and rooms with vaulted ceilings.
Jellybean Row is a nickname that fondly describes the colourful row
houses of St. John's. It was developed with Newfoundlanders in mind, but has
proven popular with tourists and is quickly becoming a hit in North America,
with steady online sales into the rest of Canada and the U.S. The product is
featured in the Great Ideas section of the December issue of Canadian Living
"The timeless Victorian beauty, bright colours and exquisite detail of
these pieces have an appeal that is universal to all Canadians," Meeker said.
"And the Christmas series is a unique way to bring holiday warmth to any
interior décor scheme."
Jellybean Row is affordably priced at $24.95 and $59.95 CDN per piece,
and can be ordered online at www.jellybeanrow.com.
