Before I share our favorite antiques and decor posts from the last month, don’t forget that you can still get 10% off everything at EuroLuxAntiques.com (plus our always-free shipping) through March 31, 2014. Just enter the coupon code: AntiqueTrail at checkout. Or mention the Antique Trail if you come to our Newberry, SC, gallery.

As I said in my Antique Trail post, the March discount on all our antiques and decor accents, from furniture to lighting, is to celebrate the fact that EuroLux Antiques is on the South Carolina Antique Trail. Our store is on the online trail map and on maps at visitor centers and antique shows. Let’s revisit our other favorite antiques and decor posts from March.

Chinese antiques and decorIn our series of client spotlights, Aly and Bruce in Oregon shared photos of their home with the unusual Late Qing Dynasty Chinese cabinet they bought from us. We also heard the romantic story behind the purchase. Aly found the antique Chinese cabinet on our website and showed it to Bruce. He decided to surprise her and ordered it on the sly! The antique elm display cabinet from the Shanxi Province dates to 1900 and it looks wonderful in Aly and Bruce’s home. “The piece is extraordinarily beautiful and fits perfectly right where I planned to put it,” said Aly. See more in our Antique Chinese Cabinet spotlight post.
Blue antiques and decor trendsThe latest interior design trends for 2014 say that blue decor is tipped for the top this year. The bolder and more intense, the better! Deep navy and saturated turquoise are especially in vogue. See some inspiring ways to add blue antiques and decor into your home in my True Blue Decor post.

religious antiques and decor

As usual in the weeks approaching Easter, we are getting a lot of inquiries from people about our antique religious treasures. Customers are also preparing for spring Confirmations and First Communions. My post on antique religious treasures shows why the devotional wear on objects from standing crosses to holy water fonts and Jesus Christ and Madonna statues makes them even more beautiful.

Finally, as Greg and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary of EuroLux Antiques this year, we’ve been remembering our early years in the business. We’ve had so much fun but we can’t help but look back and laugh at some of our mistakes too. For example, we really didn’t know what to expect when we arrived at our first antique show in Atlanta, GA, in 2004. Rolling up in the wee hours of the morning in our rented U-Haul truck packed tight with antiques and decor accents, we soon discovered that we were just not quick enough at unpacking and reassembling our antique furniture to keep up with the frenzied buyers running from dealer to dealer. It was like some crazy TV game show!

Read the full antique show story and how we ended up late at night, hours after the show ended, just us and a long-suffering security guard waiting for us to get ourselves out of there! I can just imagine him sighing with relief when we finally exited after midnight: “EuroLux has left the building!”You can see all of our March blog posts at this link, and I look forward to sharing more about antiques and decor with you as we head into April.

Aimee owns EuroLuxAntiques.com with her best friend, Greg.  Aimee sources amazing antique furniture, vintage lighting, & high-quality reproduction furniture to help her customers decorate their homes in a unique way.  She loves her 8 (you read that right) fuzzy children and is renovating a 1920s bungalow in South Carolina.

    Hi Rajan,
    Thanks for your message. I don’t currently have any Our Lady of Victory sculptures in stock, so I’m sorry I cannot help you.
    Best wishes,
    Aimee at EuroLuxHome.com
