OUI!

I can't tell you how much drool we had to clean up after getting a trade magazine this week. This picture stopped us right in our tracks. Isn't it fabulous? The article was talking about how French inspired furniture is becoming more popular, and that we'd be seeing more of it at the markets. "The lure of French design reigns again with exquisite period detail and an air of opulent elegance. Modern infusions provide wit and warmth (think animal and geometric prints), juxtaposed with lavish antique reproductions..."
I'll have to tell you this is as far as we got in the article, because we had to go back to the front page to look at this French chest. What do we love? The color, the distressed look, the shape and size.....there's nothing that we hate about it - other than the fact that it isn't in our homes!!

*Sigh*


Here's a lovely take on a library chair.....





.....and here's a beautiful reproduction of an 18th century French mirror. I have heard for two years now that gold will be making a comeback and we've been looking - we are starting to see it slowly sneak it's way back into the silver leaf and mirrored world!


Au Revoir!

The little I know about decorating is that I probably can't afford those :-)

Hey gals,
That pic of all the green "down south" from you is from last spring. So don't worry we are still waiting for leaves although we need to mow as the grass is green & growing!!!!
We've been so busy taking pics for e-commerce I had to post a pic from last year.
Our best,
Kara & Darcy
