A Story In Color



So here’s our simple wish for you: BE ALIVE.

Live in COLOR. Let it seep into your world as often (and unexpectedly) as you can.
Surprise yourself. Push your comfort and amaze your eye.
This is, quite certainly, the best way to GET YOUR CHARM ON!
This cloisonné lamp base has no right to be center stage in a
tiny space.. ohhh.. but the allure of her vibrant scheme is
magnetic. Any room (or wall.. or display.. or room décor)
has more VERVE when drenched in COLOR!


Why is blue so good?

Just a simple tone-on-tone makes a heart skip-a-beat.
Display pieces like this where you’ll see them…
where you can glance at them as you flutter on by.
Group similar pieces together so your eye and soul
can dance all at once. Pepper them throughout your
castle so no matter where you find yourself,
you’ll always be surrounded with color.


Here’s a great little trick.

Use color as a backdrop for
beautiful items that may otherwise get lost in the shuffle.
These fine little cut-glass shakers would disappear into
the dust if the colorful goblets weren’t nestled in behind them.
Color is a brilliant ally in your decorating.
Get Busy + Be Alive!!

Take Tarnish With Your Sparkle?

Neglected Silver is Always our Preference

Everyday.. yes, yes!

Don’t you just adore the warm hue a good patina
adds to all the shiny crispness? Glass sparkles
in an old-worldly way… candles glow just a
little more…get some… find some + then
layer in some more.It just has a way of
making your entertaining + decorating…
more REAL.

We Like Our Gold scratched AND Dusty

Sounds a bit nonsensical…
but our passion really has no limit!
Our dusty shelf really sets off the
gleam from the incense pot’s golden-ness.
If they were both crisp and shiny…
what a boring story we’d have here.
(How good is the Chinese shade of red…
might need to get more of that into
your world.. wait… maybe into ours)!!

Tarnish So Good It Looks Like Leather

The light embossing on the silver
is so entirely beautiful… too many
fingers have swept across to catch a
little magic. The tarnish should really
be rubbed away (soon enough)… but
in the meantime we had to capture the
cognac glaze that is seeping into the
character of this lovely piece.
Celebrate the patina… surrender to
the tarnish
(polish if you need to from time to time).
And enjoy the dance all over again. Soon.

COUNTRY LOVE


Why not?

They’re truly the most charming form of
entertainment a few acres can provide. They dance
about… shifting from one window’s view to another.
They adore apple skins (and the remnants of last
night’s popcorn). We simply delight in their
fanciful folly.. and if we’re being honest, their
folly inspires ours. Could there be a better reason
to adorn their coop with shed antlers… a vintage
copula + Mossy bricks (more to come)… .

Life is SIMPLY more GLORIOUS when we stumble upon it. Charm.


Dewiness at its finest

We’re fully aware that we’re
smack in the midst of the year’s twelfth month.
Snow is coming.. but not quite yet.. and we’re
still able to crave some color from the earth.
Some insanely good nibbles from our country’s
spring-time. For all you fellow-northerner’s…
doesn’t it feed your soul in the finest way?
Anticipation. Sweet memories…….regret
(oh why didn’t I plant more bulbs this autumn)??
Okay.. back to Anticipation.


why, oh why.. is moss so good?!!

A wee little garden shed tucked under the shadow
of an ancient Norway spruce is the best recipe
for country-divine. Some days, we’re tempted
to finally slow down… maybe even pause long
enough to toss a vintage plaid blanket next to
her… and relish in her country-ness.
Won’t you join us? Bring some wine?


Thirsty?

Here’s a candid shot of our
favorite form of “casual” (sure, call us a little nutty)..
One fine day, the babes decided to toddle up the back
steps to help themselves to a cool drink from the
Bulldog’s water bowl.
Get your charm on!


GET YOUR CHARM ON

VENETIAN AMBER DROPLETTES

CHARM. It must be the randomness of it all that holds us captive.
Flirtatious + sweet. Unpredictably wondrous whenever our happy
paths cross. Too good to go unnoticed… too addictive to ignore.
Lucky us.

Life is SIMPLY more GLORIOUS when we stumble upon it. Charm.

VINTAGE ROYAL CHERUBINA

What could possibly be more charming than this
beauty. (We’re so inspired.. crocheted caps +
crimson capes are now encouraged.. especially
when we’re out and about).

HANDSOME DRAGON PETITE

You MUST have at least a little taste of sassy-exotic
in your cottage or castle.. may just change your creative
perspective forever. Let your hair down + celebrate the cool.

RUSTICA BOTANICA

Rustic structures are tops on our list.
They’re fantastical mood-lifters… superb photo backdrops…
(+ another random place to add a smidge more)… charm.
