Sugar and spice and all things nice!

These are recent pics of the store....the feminine side of The Brushed Bureau. If you reside in Charlotte, please stop by for a visit. We are in the BlackLion (Charlotte Park Rd.) along with 300+ other merchants. It's a fun place to shop for furniture, accessories and gifts. And, a great place to get inspired for decorating ideas!

This lovely California estate was inspired by the beautiful south countryside of France. The decor is exquisite with giant chandeliers and velvet sofas. It also sits on a 65-acre piece of land with many breath-taking views. It was re-decorated and renovated by Suzanne Sommers and is currently for sale.

Reclaim it!

I find many old discarded pieces that are begging to be salvaged. The possibilities for recycling these items are endless. So, the next time you are throwing out an old shutter or cabinet in the garbage bin, consider re-purposing it. It will add much creative character to your decor, save dollars and mother earth will thank you! (Examples below: old shutters re-purposed for headboard, old picket fence made into a decorative hook, distressed cabinet with old glass knob turned into a wall ornament.)
