We are using soft greens as the base for this scheme. If you aren’t sure what colors to use in your space sometimes it helps by picking that “thing” you just love… whether it be an art piece, pillow, etc. We just loved the colors in this art piece we got at Round Top. The base color is a soft green - so we started there.Read More
BEHIND THE DESIGN - CAMDEN RESIDENCE
Kitchen & Breakfast Room
I’ve done a post previously on this home for the Master Bedroom.. Click Here to View Post ! Sister met with this client and her Mom and they have such a sweet, close relationship. The home was our clients childhood home. Her Mother now lives next door. There was something so special about this project… the home was built in the early 1970’s.
Our client loves both traditional furnishings and lots of color. .Read More

Gustave Flaubert, the French writer best known for his novel Madame Bovary, is generally attributed with the saying, "Le bon Dieu est dans le detail".
Over the years this expression has morphed and changed but the simple message remains the same...and that is… that whatever we do, should be done thoroughly and to the very best of our abilities.
The details are what make all the difference...
Details can be very simple or extremely elaborate. The complexity is not the point...
It's as Gustave Flaubert tried to convey...that whatever we do, should be done thoroughly and to the very best of our abilities.
We're thrilled to participate in an international blog party today.

Flat screen televisions have sent a lot of beautiful armoires to the garage or a spare bedroom as people opt for more modern pieces to either hide the TV or just mount it on the wall.
Why not re-purpose these pieces and use them in unconventional ways in other rooms in your home?
Sister recently did a complete overhaul on an armoire that had been in her daughters room since she was in high school. She and Tara decided to use it for both storage and a changing table in the babies nursery.
Wish we had the before shot...it was a rough wood with solid doors. (Looked like it came from Mexico, ugh.) Talena's husband cut the panels out and added the wire mesh grids. Talena painted the cabinet inside and out...changed the hardware and added fabric panels behind the grill.
Also wish we had a picture of the unit open. It has a shelf with pad for changing diapers and a cute mirror hanging above it. Baskets on lowers shelves organize everything that is needed to keep baby happy.
Just to give you a sense of how lovely it fits into the nursery now...
More ideas for old armoires...
A lovely bar?.....
How about removing or changing doors out and incorporating into the bath for a unique cabinet?
Great for Sewing or Crafting Storage...
Great for extra linens...
Great for home ofice space...
Love how creative someone got with the wallpaper inside this old piece...This would be darling with the adition of hooks and possibly a partition and use as a locker in the back hall or laundry area.
On a large blank wall in a dining space...fill it with dishes and serving pieces...
The ideas are endless... I would love a beautiful armoire similar to this one near the front entrance for Guests coats and scarves...
Hopefully this inspires you to look at something you may have become tired of in a unique way. What inspiration will you share?
