In the spirit of our trip to Paris, I wanted to share a peak of the new cartographers table covered in antique maps and ready for it’s next adventure.
This table is a salvaged piece. It’s charming rustic shape and all wood construction spoke to me, When I found the perfect dove gray…It was time to start cleaning, sanding, and painting.
I found this antique map paper to be the perfect accent to the dove gray paint.
A silver knob coated in bright white enamel…
Et voila! It will be in shop soon after we return from our European journey. You can see more before and after furniture restorations here.
This is one project that I am really looking forward to. It is the initial design concept for a holistic spa and medical lobby. I am working with a clean palette and shades of natural healthy feeling greens.I am loving the lace pendant that is on sale at Crate and Barrel for this space. It is so soft and elegant. Although, this is just the beginning and a lot could change within this calming and refreshing space.
In contrast to the board above, here is another source of modern classic and slightly more dramatic inspiration. We are working very hard to create a cozy bedroom using many textures and finishes together, such as combining matte black lamps and little pops of brass. Best of all, the art is on it’s way!!!…and I will have a picture soon of an Ethiopian necklace made from nickel in a gorgeous burl wood shadowbox frame. The art will be placed in a vignette with the scone above the nightstand.
I’m liking the shades of gray with the dramatic bursts of purple too! We are still debating the lighting, so I took lots of pictures today at Rejuventation. Shall I share my photostream of goodies later in the week? How about you, any projects around the house or great shopping that you are into??
