That splash of exotic pattern that weaves into any decor exuding a cozy sense of luxury, an appreciation for glamour, and, invariably, a more genuine look overall because everything is not from the same region or genre…it is all about the mix, and not following any set of rules…except your own.

The Test of Time

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

One of my favorite aspects of antiques is their timeless quality. The word “antique” inherently indicates that whatever object it is describing is old, but I love that each pieces comes with its own unique history. Refinished, recovered, restored, or still in the original form, antiques almost have a romantic air about them that is tied […]

Using Pieces with Chinoiserie for an Asian Accent

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

There is no great mystery to design. The real secret is how to make things work, and that is a gift that must be nurtured. Of course, how one designs tells a good deal about oneself. Antiques may speak of mystery or romance; paintings or objects may reveal a preoccupation or interest. The objects used in […]

Decorating with English Tea Caddies

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Did you know that tea was introduced from China to England in the middle of the 17th century? Treasured, secretive as well as valued, tea used to be its own currency.
