The next day is a trip to Antique Row – over 40 stores of Antique, Vintage and Modern home furnishings — I could stay for days and often purchase wonderful things to take back north for clients. A true treasure trove. Speaking of treasure troves -Be sure to visit D. Brett Benson for beautiful vintage jewelry – Kevin and Brett are so knowledgeable and charming – If you don’t get the chance to get down to their charming shop you can visit them at the upcoming Pier Show in NY.
Your bedroom should reflect your personal style while remaining the perfect place to rest, relax, and rejuvenate. If your bedroom has lost some of it’s luster, treat yourself to a bedroom makeover! Introduce a beautiful new bed and luxurious linens to your room to inspire your personal sanctuary.
The Bed: Horchow’s Fresno Bed beckons you to lay down and sleep. The cushioned headboard is slightly curved, which gives it a winged appearance; I love the deep-button tufting detail!
The Guest Bedroom
The Bed: Give your guests a memorable stay! William Sonoma’s Westport Bed would look fabulous in your guest room!
As a designer I am always looking for a way to personalize an item for a client; the vast fabric and color options available for the Westport Bed’s upholstery is fantastic.
The Bed: Get out of the winter doldrums and prep your bedroom for spring! This is the perfect time to start thinking about spring home decor! I love Gregorius Pineo’s Moragas Bed which is available in both Walnut and Mahogany!
The Linens: Juxtapose the rich wood tones of Gregorius Pineo’s Moragas Bed with John Robshaw’s bright and pretty Kishore Duvet in periwinkle!
Complete your bedroom’s new look with a throw blanket! I love the Ombre Organic Cotton and Wool Throw by Coyuchi, available at The Company Store! For more of my favorite beds, view my Pinterest board here.
How would you style these 5 stylish settees? A settee is a long upholstered seat which seats more than one person, and can be placed in various settings. From a business’ waiting room, to an elegant powder room, this is one piece of furniture you can definitely work into your latest interior design!
The Modern Interior
This Chaddock Living Room Waterford Sofa is a very modern update on the settee! I love the architecture in this piece of furniture; it’s ideal for a room that needs a little bit of an edge.
Give your design a fresh twist with this Farm Wing Settee from Hickory Chair! I love the idea of creating a welcoming breakfast nook with this Farm Wing Settee as the bench. Consider adding this settee to your mud room for a more structured feel!
This chocolate-stained Mahogany-wood settee from British Regency catches your eye with an undulating back rest and woven pattern! Welcome your guests when they walk in the door by placing this in your lavish entryway.
A Touch of Romance
First Dibs is one of my favorite online marketplaces for unique, antique furniture and collectables! I am in love with this 18th century Swedish Gustavian Settee, which is made of pine. This quaint collectable is perfect for a sunroom or study!
Lavish and Lavender
This plush and petite 1940’s settee from 1st Dibs is curvacious and welcoming! Reupholstered with a beautiful lavender chevron chenille, this piece would be perfect in a living room or a library!
Buffets and sideboards are versatile pieces which work in a variety of rooms, and are available in many styles! From hosting an elegant soiree to being used as an in-office wet bar, the options for styling buffets and sideboards are limited only by your creativity!
The Artisan Grand Credenza from Hickory Chair‘s 1911 Collection is masculine and stately. Inspired by a mid-century chair piece, this is a prime example of a classic piece of furniture that will work in almost any design. We envision this credenza in a study or an office.
Also ideal for an office or a posh workspace is this Caldera Credenza from Gregorius Pineo. Made of Oak, and available in various finishes, I prefer this piece with the Interlace Carving panel option (shown), though the Santorini panel option is lovely as well.
This WY Arley Mirrored Sideboard is a prime example of a sideboard that refuses to be overlooked. This piece features three shelves, each with three compartments; storage has never been so stylish!
Hardly anything is as exquisite as the made-to-order furniture line from Jean de Merry. Combining inspiration from the 1940’s with neo-classic design, this piece is functioning art. I am most impressed by the heirloom finishing technique, which renders a naturally aged authenticity.
