Found Inspiration - Wine + Market

Elle recently travelled to Lexington, KY and found this great little shop called Wine + Market, that we wanted to share.

 The shop is housed in an unassuming building, but beyond the simple facade is a gem. Wine + Market serves as a deli, bakery, wine market, and local goods shop. The interiors are beautifully done, and the food is to die for. If only they could move to Atlanta...

Scott's Finds - June 2013

It was terrible missing out on Scott's in May, so we were so happy to be able to squeeze a quick trip in this month. We didn't come home with any large pieces, but we did find some great small things.

We fell head over heels for this chair! That velvet
is killing us - sadly we didn't have a home for it.

We snagged some of this gorgeous Hodsoll McKenzie fabric!

We couldn't leave without them!

Piece of the Moment - Duchesse Brisée

We are lucky to work with some amazing antique dealers, and have the pleasure of being able to shop their warehouses when new containers arrive. Each time we are invited, it's truly an adventure. Our whole team looks forward to these days, because we never know just what we are going to find. Often times, we leave with a collection of things, and then sometimes we are simply just inspired by new things. This past trip, we managed to score a gorgeous mirror for a client, but we also found a completely new piece.

None of us had ever seen anything quite like it before, but what we found was a 'duchesse brisée.' It's actually a very early form of the daybed. After a little research, we found this sketch and definition.

The real beauty is this piece below. We are absolutely loving it!

The Full Piece - Isn't the fabric amazing?!

Top Down View - We love the cut of the ottoman to match
the seat fronts!

The Highback Chair Profile - Isn't it stunning?!

Catching Up

We can't believe it's been almost a month and a half since we last posted! Where does the time fly?!

Our May was really crazy, and we had a big install for a massive renovation. We were lucky to be brought in early on the project alongside Kemp Hall Studio architects, so we have been working on it since last July or August. We are still working on a couple of rooms in the house, but we should be wrapping up in the next month or two. It's an absolutely beautiful home, and we hope to share soon!

Last month was even so crazy, that we had to skip out on Scott's Antique Market! We were bummed about that, but we are so thankful to be busy (knock on wood)!

All of that aside, it's time to get the blog running again. We promise to post super soon!
