In our April blog posts, we enjoyed seeing the many beautiful ways our clients use and display antique furniture they’ve found at EuroLuxAntiques.com. We also took design inspiration from clever accent colors, the humble bowl, and London hotels. Let’s revisit some of our favorite April posts.
We loved how Robert and Liz feature antique furniture in their decor throughout their lovely house in Johnson City, Tennessee. We especially loved seeing the antique French Hunting chairs, Art Deco buffet and Spanish Renaissance table they’d purchased from us. The fine antique furniture looks so very happily at home in their dining room!
Interior designer Paul Corrie of Paul Corrie Interiors made splendid use of this gorgeous vintage Louis XV Rococo style shelf clock. He featured it in his striking design for the entry and lobby spaces of The Dresden in Washington, DC.
The Dresden is one of the fanciest condominium addresses in the capital. As you can see from the room photos in the vintage clock article, this 1950s Hermle beauty fits right in!
We took a quick trip around some Historic Hotels of London to discover why these hotels are so legendary. It all becomes clear when you see the fantastic old buildings decorated with gorgeous vintage or reproduction antique furniture. I also shared some tidbits about the famous people who’ve stayed at these hotels.
We were bowled over to hear about the antique bowl that sold for more than $2.2 million in a New York auction. The family selling the bowl had displayed it in their living room. They had no idea of the true value! This inspired my post about pretty and practical ways to use bowls in your decor.
In another post, we looked at how to enhance your neutral decor with a pop of vintage color.
As I call this blog ‘Letters from EuroLux,’ I also explored the Vintage Art of Writing Letters. Old-fashioned? Moi? Well, we sell most of our fine antique furniture via our EuroLuxAntiques.com website, and I live on email, talking with customers and answering their questions. But it does us all good to slow down sometimes! A personal letter is sure to put a smile on someone’s face.
Don’t worry, I won’t return to snail mail to answer your questions. We pride ourselves on our prompt customer service!
Thanks for sharing April with me. We’ve got lots more to say in May about home decor, antique furniture, and living it up, vintage style!
