Hello everyone. I am back!
I was in Washington D.C. last week and took a little break
to meet up with my friend Mary Alice of Chateau Chic.
We had great fun visiting and shopping together.
One thing that we did one day was to travel to Bethesda, Maryland
to see our friend Loi at his exquisite antique shop, Tone On Tone.
Mary Alice had never been there so it was an extra treat for her to see
the shop and finally get to meet the sweet and talented Loi in person.
Loi is the definition of Elegance and Style.
Today, you are in for a treat! A little tour of Loi’s most amazing shop.
So grab your favorite drink and prepare for some beauty on steroids!
(Just excuse the quality of the photos as all I had with me was my iPhone.)
Speaking of elegance and style,
this armoire/wardrobe blew me away with its most incredible carvings. Simply breathtaking.
Could this have been a special piece carved for a couple to be wed?
For “love birds”
And…for those of you who know Loi and follow his gorgeous blog, Tone on Tone
and Instagram, you will know his love of topiaries. They are truly amazing.
The topiaries are so beautiful you just want to hug them!!
They grace the tops of beautiful tables and chests.
There is such eye candy in every inch of his 3,200 square foot shop,
like this beautiful Mora clock.
Secretaries . . .
I think this sweet bench may have been sold after we left.
Or maybe it was this pair of benches in front of this gorgeous ironstone display.
And speaking of ironstone, Loi’s ironstone in his shop
are perfect, perfect pieces that anyone would love to add to their collection.
Or start one!
There is no shortage of beautiful mirrors in the shop.
Oh there’s me … and Mary Alice.
Loi has many wonderful stained wood pieces among his painted pieces.
I love this image as it depicts the many antiques that Loi’s shop has to offer,
from the beautiful furniture to the antique accessories of chandeliers, mirrors,
ironstone, garden items, clocks and the list goes on.
As I stated above, 3,200 square feet of sheer beauty!
Loved this marble top bistro table.
Need a bread board?
I bet you would say that you can get everything but the kitchen sink in Loi’s shop.
But you cannot!!! Because he has one!!
Don’t you just love his little “kitchen corner?”
After I left his shop my head was spinning with ideas.
You just have to marvel at the fact that he styles and curates every surface
with such perfection.
It was a good day and I hope you enjoyed this tour.
Loi really brings lots of joy and beauty to others in many ways.
And . . . since we are on the subject of bringing joy and beauty….
I wish you a most joyful and beautiful day!!!
