We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! If you were so busy shopping, cooking and decorating for Thanksgiving that you didn’t have chance to drop by and see us on the blog, here are highlights from November so you can go back and read the stories in full. (And next year, check out our post on Easy Decor Ideas for your Traditional Thanksgiving Table. It might make life a bit simpler!)
My favorite posts each month are always our client spotlights when we take a little tour of a customer’s home and see how they use the piece of furniture or decor that they bought from us. Last month was no exception as we visited Crystal B.’s Georgia kitchen to deliver a large 1950s vintage French dining table. Crystal has been hunting for the perfect table for her spacious open kitchen for 4 years and we were thrilled that this chunky Renaissance style table was the solution! See the full story and more photos of the vintage Renaissance table as well as Crystal’s lovely wrought iron pot rack packed with vintage appeal.
Talking of vintage appeal, we got a great response on our Facebook Page and other social media to our post about Kathy’s collection of Thanksgiving pilgrims. My mother-in-law has collected pilgrims and other Thanksgiving-themed objects for more than 30 years and her collection has grown to more than 700 pieces! We display this wonderful collection in our EuroLux Gallery window on Main Street, Newberry, SC, from October through Thanksgiving every year. People love seeing the pilgrims peeking out of our window! My Collection of Thanksgiving Pilgrims post tells you how the collection started and shows more photos.
Visitors often come to stay through the holiday season so I started a series of posts about how to create a gorgeous guest room. The photos are SO inspiring and I hope that the posts help you think about how to make the guest bedroom inviting, comfortable and practical for your dear family and friends.
So far I’ve written two posts on this subject. One was about the essentials needed for a Beautiful Traditional Style Guest Room. The other focused on Stylish Seating Options for a Guest Bedroom, whether you have tons of space or a more compact nest for your visitors.
I hope that you find some useful home decor ideas or inspirational images in these recent highlights from our blog. Please come back and see us next month or sign up to receive blog posts by email. Let me know if there is a subject you would like me to write about… we love all comments and questions!
