Best of October 2014: Inspiring Home Decor

We saw some inspiring home decor on the Letters from Eurolux blog this month. Two of my favorite October blog posts were from our series of Client Spotlights, showing furniture customers bought from us in their homes. Let’s start with those as we take a look back at some of our favorite blog posts of the month.

Cathy B. in Canyon Lake, TX, sent us lots of lovely photos of her game room renovation, in the basement of her home on the Guadalupe River. She called the pub-style bar space her  “dream game room basement” and we could see why from the photos!

Bar and Games RoomCathy went above and beyond in her renovation, even moving the outside staircase so it didn’t obstruct the view. Cathy bought a new Ambella Home vanity from us. The rustic look of the marble top and copper farmhouse sink was a perfect match for the basement bar and game room. See all the before and after photos of Cathy’s house inside and out, and her inspiring home decor in the Game Room Renovation post.

Brenda D. in Auburn, AL,  bought this charming carved oak vintage Louis XV French Country sideboard from us for her dining room.

Vintage Louis XV French Country sideboardWe found Brenda’s home decor inspiring not JUST because she bought this fine piece from us! I was interested to hear that Brenda was looking for the ideal piece of furniture to go with her Eddie Bauer dining table. She is one of our many customers with the taste and confidence to blend different styles, mixing new and antique furniture.  (More about that in my blog post: Eclectic Decor: Freedom from Matchy-Matchy Furniture.) As you’ll see from the photos of the vintage Louis XV French Country sideboard in the dining room, Brenda chose well!

Brittany Room Wedmore PlaceWedmore Place country hotel at the Williamsburg Winery in Virginia is not actually our customer, but it could be as they have rooms decorated with the same tapestries that we stock at EuroLuxHome.com. My blog post on the Tapestries at Wedmore Place Hotel tells you about this lovely 300-acre property on a historic site, and shows a few more tapestries too!

Rococo Orange DecorOur other favorite blog post this month showed some sizzling fall-inspired home decor.

Spice Up Your Space with Orange Decor showed how to create a welcoming glow with this warm color.  Ideas range from juicy orange rooms to vibrant accents walls, with hues from zesty tangerine to soft coral and warm pumpkin.
