Classic Elegance 2013

Our cover look entitled “Classic Elegance 2013” illustrates a growing design trend: a look that combines sophistication with rustic warmth.  Natural finishes that have a comfortable time worn appeal are occasionally punctuated with subtle luxurious accents like the sparkle of crystals, crisp linen, nail head accents and vintage mercury glass.  The soothing color palette combines textured neutrals with calming shades of a pale blue sky. Furnishings are rich in character, presented in carved woods that evoke a sense of history, while up to date accents keep the look relevant for today.

The French Carved 2 Drawer Chest featured is crafted in solid mahogany with darkened brass hardware and feet. This chest offers both style and storage that could be at home in a hallway, living room or bedroom setting.  Our Keyhole Mirror above hosts a pair of built in sconces. This focal point piece blends clean lines and a traditional motif with the added bonus of stylish wall lighting.

Flanking the chest on either side, you find a pair of  X base footstools, upholstered in an elegant brush script fabric that is accented with nail head trim. A pair of these versatile stools can be used in place of a cocktial table for a softer look, as extra seating to pull up for guests, or a place to rest pillows and bedding at the foot of a bed. Bringing pretty to practical, you will find 5 color options to fit in any room. See our website for white

The rugs below bring layers of sophistication to the design with a natural albino cowhide over a Bohemian pattern Dhurrie rug. Flat weave dhurrie rugs are easy to live with and easy to afford, making them a good choice for any room.  Layer a hide on top for a touch of luxe appeal.

Accessories make the final style statement in any room.  The set of botanical prints selected here are traditional black and white sketches that take on a new mood when mounted on a burlap mat with distressed black frames. I particularly like to use sets of art  to create a unified look in hallways and stairwells or across a large wall over a sofa or bed.  The rustic painted ladder that leans to  the side of our  cover adds a touch of whimsy that keeps the room from becoming too formal. Decorative ladders  can add style, while displaying  blankets, magazines, towels, belts, scarfs, heels, etc.
