Pink isn't just for Panthers....

I'm not sure if the color Pink is my style. However, I do know that Pink seems to be really hot right now in the interior design world and I do think this trend will be popular for awhile. I couldn't resist doing a post on this trend since spring is finally here and pink is everywhere. Some of my "favs" below....
Nice pink headboard paired with gold patterned décor. (Four Chairs)

Love this vintage inspired wood chair! (One Kings Lane)

Mod interior mixed with several pastel colors by Max Attenborough

This pink wallpaper would look awesome on an accent wall. (Anthropologie)

Traditional room done in pink, green and gold. (Better Homes and Gardens)

Thanks for asking!

I've had a few former customers ask if I'm going to open a new physical shop location anytime soon. And, the honest answer is..."I am still taking a break". The painted furniture business had taken it's toll....over a decade of painting furniture! However, I am missing owning and operating a store front. Not sure if I will continue to go the Blacklion route since I seem to have a lot of antiques to sell. Believe me, my storage unit is packed to full capacity! Meanwhile, I will keep everybody in the loop via this blog when I decide to open a new store. I really appreciate all the love and support that I've received over the years!!

Catching Anthro spring fever...

I usually start catching spring fever this time of year! I start scheming a few remodeling projects in my home and I will plan on getting new furniture and accessories after looking over the new spring catalogs....which are now arriving daily in the mail! This year, Anthropologie has caught my attention with their fresh new blue wallpaper, antique reproduction mirrors and lovely French furniture. In fact, I suggest visiting a nearby Anthropologie if you want to be inspired to decorate. They have the most creative displays of home décor from bedding to cabinet knobs. Below are a few of my favorites:

I am loving this gray lacquer desk with brass/glass square knobs.
The chair is also fabulously feminine!

Wall paper that resembles old world tile. I had to
take a double look to confirm this wall was really papered!
Different patterns of blue wallpaper on stairs.

One of my favorite headboards! It was inspired from
a carved boiseries in France from the17th century.

This floor mirror looks like an authentic antique piece.
This would make a statement in any room!
