Using Period Pieces with Modern Pieces to Decorate

This photo came from one of our clients who purchased our 18th-century carved walnut wine coolers from Europe. She is thrilled with her new treasures, and we are thrilled for her. This is what we’re all about: Helping our clients enjoy their homes, helping our clients make their homes a sanctuary. This client is on an emotional journey of discovery, and she is in a state of mind to explore fresh territory. This sideboard is situated in her foyer, and while we usually will add a modern touch, we never insist that our clients do the same. She has added a touch of whimsy with the tassels on the keys. The wine coolers are multipurpose: They can be used as vases, as decoration, and yes, to cool and serve wine. Metal panels and a decorative gallery rail speak to the current trend of mixing metal and wood. This is a calming, symmetrical setting with its candlestick lamps and linen drum shades. Add the impressionistic landscape and the faux finish on the wall, and the scene is set. Our client is learning to enhance her lifestyle and developing her own personal aesthetic. Our job is to help our clients create rooms that must reflect their personal preferences, needs, desires, and dreams. For all of us, learning how to live well is a lifelong process. We want our clients to be happy in their sanctuary. After all, we at the gallery think life is a luxury, indeed
