Orchid Oasis

With pantone's color of the year "Radiant Orchid" you were probably thinking, how do I use that in my home? Here's our interpretation… using these hues we mixed it with gray, gold and white to create a unique and serene landscape.
Shown here one of our new spring vignettes in the shop. We used a mid-century inspired console  flanked with gorgeous gray lamps that have a touch of glam in their lucite bases. This main focal point of this area is the plexi artwork of a geode. It's reflecting our gold steamers in the window… so you can't really see the detail of this, but it's fabulous. Also, the offset gold urchins on the wall add interest to this symmetrical look. 

*Design tip: Place a pair of ottomans under a console for extra seating and another pop of color. 

Next up, Mr. Ed visits the Manor.

Easter Basket Pre-Sale

Hop on over to Facebook or Instagram tonight at 8 pm, for these cuties on pre-sale. We only have a few of each so I thought I would do a pre-sale before our open house on Saturday. (you lucky bunny) They are only $8.50 each and you can add a monogram for $8, or a name for $10. 

Set you clock for 8 pm, and comment with "Sold" to secure your basket. Good luck!

Shop Talk

It's been a while since I've done a Shop Talk post. Mostly because we haven't been able to catch our breath lately. Here are some random snippets from the shop lately! 

This little babe was welcomed to the world with a darling monogramed diaper clutch! Thanks for sharing your cutie mrsleva07!
