A Great Find – Chelsea House Mirror

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy May Day!!!

I am hoping I can find some Lily of the Valley to give to my loved ones.

Did you know that it was a tradition in France 

to give your loved ones Lilies of the Valley on May Day?

And speaking of France  . . .

A few weeks ago, I discovered a beautiful Trumeau mirror at my fav consignment shop.

It was love at first sight. However, being that we are building a new house,

it has been suggested that I only spend what I need for the house.

I did not “need” that mirror, but on the other hand,  I did.

It would look wonderful over one of the mantels or the powder room.

Spring Decor Details and A Treasure Reveal

Hello Dear Readers!

Are you enjoying some great Spring weather?

We are enjoying it here

with less pollen and blue skies and fabulous temperatures.

Since Spring is in the air,

I decided to place some Spring decor

in the Great Room

of the Berry Patch House.

It all began with a pair of my treasures that I brought home

from my Road Trip to Boston to see Amy (Maison Decor).

My New Sofa Decision, Chinoiserie Jar and More

Hello Dear Readers!

I hope you all had a most wonderful Labor Day Holiday weekend.

I know it is time to kick off the beautiful season of Fall;

however, it is still pretty warm here in the beautiful state of North Carolina.

Well, at least where I am.

I had a jam packed long weekend and today I want to tell you about

my new sofa decision, Chinoiserie jar and more!

Spring Pink in the Great Room

I bought a bouquet of flowers the other day along with a small Azalea plant

to place in the Great Room. Well that led to me thinking that it is time for a change.

So off to the linen closet I went, to see what pillow covers I can use for the room.

Since pink was the predominant color in the flowers, I gathered pillow covers

in various shades of pink and raspberry. Just what the room needed for a Spring Refresh.

Blush in the Guest Room and A Winner

The Guest Room is Blushing? Or is it Bashful?  The Steel Magnolias would know!

Today, there is Blush in the Guest Room and A Winner!

When I was in Florida, a trip to HomeGoods to get something for my sister

yielded several things. A tablecloth that I used in my Floral Friday post,

a quilt for my sister, two pink or should I say blush pillows, and more.

Today, you will see how two pink/blush pillows and more, gave the guest room a bit of a refresh.

Sunroom Refresh with Blue and White and More

Hello everyone! It’s Floral Friday!

I had planned to do something in my dining room for this week’s post;

however, after trip to my favorite Consignment Shop, Always Home in Durham, NC.,

I decided to put that on hold and use my treasures that I found at the shop.

So today, I present a Sunroom Refresh with Blue and White and more.

Guest Room Refresh

While I was eliminating a few large items in the Guest Room,

and doing some general de-cluttering and staging.

I could not help but think if I should refresh the room

with Summer decor? Or should I just do a Guest Room Refresh? Refresh I did.

 When packing up some pillows, I kept a pillow aside,

knowing I would use it in one of the rooms for the summer.

A faux grain sack pillow, Summer House.

A Vignette Inspired By A Beautiful Book, My High-Low Project

I love beautiful home decor books.

I came across this book, “Beautiful” by Mark D. Sikes

while reading a review on it by the lovely ladies of Design Chic.

I ordered this book right away and was totally immersed in the magnificent

rooms and decor featured in his  book.

While reading this book, I  came across a vignette on a skirted table

that I knew I could somewhat replicate on a budget, by actually shopping the house.

So I began to collect those items and I created

a vignette inspired by a Beautiful book,  my High Low project.
