November Home Decor & Antiques Roundup

Thanksgiving trayWe 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!)

Vintage Renaissance Table in Dining RoomMy 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.

Kathy with her collection of Thanksgiving pilgrimsTalking 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.

traditional-bedroom French styleVisitors 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!

October Home Decor & Antiques Roundup

We hope you enjoy this quick “antiques roundup” of highlights from our October blog posts, linked to the original stories so you can go back to see them for yourself!

We had quite a busy month, including adopting a new cat and ooh-ing and aah-ing over the photos in our spotlight on our customer’s gorgeous Greco-Roman mansion home.

Greco-Roman mansion in Newberry, SCThis is the outside of that lovely house and the inside is just as amazing, filled with antique furniture chosen by our customer Tamra. She chose some beautiful pieces from us, including a French Country Louis XV refectory table, antique Hunting chairs and Hunting buffets, and a couple of antique Mechelen buffets. You really have to see this mini tour, so take a look at the full blog post about Antique French Furniture in a Classic Newberry Mansion.

Cat that Hurricane Joachmin blew inOur happiest news this month was the arrival of our new little tiger cat Pumpkin. She turned up on our doorstep looking wet and bedraggled after Hurricane Joachim dumped 18″ of rain in Newberry over one weekend.

When I opened the door, she pranced in as if she belonged here and pretty soon she did! She arrived just in time to be the star of my National Cat Day post.

You can see how she’s been making herself at home all over the gallery, and we’ve also shared recent cute photos of some of our other fur babies.

Welcome Pumpkin… named for the month you arrived!

Replace Wooden Roof on our Vintage BungalowWe were less happy a while ago when we found that the roof was leaking in the sun room of our 1920s vintage bungalow. During all our renovations, we hoped that we had about 5 years left in the existing roof but it turned out to be only 3 years. There was nothing for it but to Raise the Roof! As you can see in the post, we also added some skylights and chose a patriotic shingle and paint combo, so it all worked out just fine!

Safe House USA Marble Print duvet coverThe final highlight that I’d like to mention of our home decor blog posts this month is about the Marble Decor Trend. Marble in furnishings and architecture is, of course, a classic favorite, but now it’s getting a new boost of appreciation from the interior design world.

Aside from furniture featuring marble details, the current trend has inspired faux marble looks on everything from textiles to wallpaper! This marble print duvet cover is a great example of a fresh take on an eternally elegant material.

I look forward to spending November with you, sharing more ideas and stories about antique furniture and home decor. Stay cozy!

Marble Decor – A Classic Trend

We sell quite a lot of new and antique marble furniture. A buffet or nightstand with a marble top is always popular but we also have a nice range of sink chests with marble tops. We love the marble effect in decor and it seems like we’re in good company. Many design magazines and other decor media are saying that marble is very on trend right now.

Red Marble Eastlake VanityCertainly this month’s High Point Market – a huge and influential furniture market – showed a lot of marble finishes including marbled paper effects.  We think marble never went out of fashion, it’s been a design classic for centuries! But it’s great to know that it’s back in vogue again, whether it’s genuine marble or marble looks on everything from wallpaper to textiles. Here are some ideas of how to enjoy this elegant material in your home, starting with the real thing!

This fantastic 1890 American mahogany antique vanity or dressing table in the Eastlake style that we have in stock right now is topped with rose or red colored marble. The marble is  practical but it also gives an upscale look as well as a pretty burst of vintage color. You might also enjoy seeing this blog post about how our customer Kathleen made creative use of an antique French marble-top nightstand in her kitchen.

Safe House USA Marble Print duvet coverAnd this is even more creative – although of course it’s not real marble. (Brr, that would be chilly!)

The white marble print duvet cover from Safe House USA looks incredibly convincing but it’s really printed on a sanded poplin fabric.

The marble pattern looks fresh and airy and I think it could go with many traditional bedroom styles as well as with a more modern bedroom.

Dibbern Carrara TeacupIn the morning, you’ll want to be woken up with a cup of tea sipped from this Dibbern Carrara teacup.

Carrara is the Italian city famous for the marble quarried there, and this cup is part  of the Carrara range of fine bone china tableware with the subtle marble design. It’s made in Germany and sold by Dibbern retailers in the United States.

You can even find faux marble wallpapers, although I think it’s hard to beat this beautiful marble effect by Calico Wallpaper.

I’ll keep looking out for marble finishes in home decor and if you spot the marble look cropping up somewhere unexpected, tell us in the comments box!

Bookshelf: French Country Style and Decor

These new books about vintage French Country style look like great gifts for the holidays! Or treat yourself and your home to a touch of French style… I recommend indulging in a croissant dipped in café au lait while reading these books. It will help you get in the mood, right?

Charles Faudree Country French Legacy

Charles Faudree French Country LegacyCharles Faudree was a wonderful American interior designer based in Tulsa. Just like us he loved everything French – from the landscapes to the architecture and (of course) the stylish decor. Faudree died in 2013 but this book celebrates his legacy as a champion of French Country decor.

Author and photographer Jennifer Jordan shows us a selection of Charles Faudree’s decorating projects – kind of a ‘best of French Country by Faudree’ compilation! Clients also tell stories about working with him. What a wonderful tribute and great inspiration for all of us who love French Country style in our homes!

New Vintage French Interiors

Vintage French Interiors Get tips on how to create French Country style interiors in eclectic and interesting ways by combining vintage and antique French furniture with new and modern pieces. Decor ideas include displays of antique gardening tools across a wall, and other unique touches that lend a home tons of character and charm. The houses in the book connect to their natural environment by featuring earthy tones and natural materials like stone and wood. Author Sébastien Siraudeau has written several other books including Vintage French Interiors and French Country Style at Home, Here he takes us on a fresh new French Country trip!

My Stylish French Girlfriends

My Stylish French GirlfriendsHere’s a glimpse inside a world that I bet many of us would like to try… even if just for a week or two! The author Sharon Santoni-Smith writes the blog My French Country Home about her life in Normandy, France. (Sharon is from England but she moved to France after she married a French man.) In this new book she writes not only about life in rural France but also about the chic tastes of her French girlfriends. She introduces us to 20 French women and takes us into their homes all over the French countryside, from grand chateaux to enchanting French country cottages. The coffee table book with beautiful photos shows how her friends dress, decorate and entertain in true French style.

After all that delightful French Country decor, you can indulge in even more if like. Just check out our own blog posts on French Country style or browse the French Country furniture and decor in our gallery!

Bookshelf: The Nautical Home

I’ve blogged recently about Beach Style Decor and Beach Style Textures and Home Accessories so I thought it might be fun to see what new books have been published this summer to add to the nautical decor inspirations!

The Nautical Home

The-Nautical-HomeThat’s the perfect title, although the subtitle might be even better: Coastline-Inspired Ideas to Decorate with Seaside Spirit.

The book is written by Anna Örnberg, the author of many interior decorating books and a keen flea market shopper. Readers who own a coastal home will obviously be interested, but the book is also intended for those who live in a city or a land-locked town, while dreaming of the salt air and laid-back lifestyle of the beach. Anna writes about color schemes, materials, and the finishing touches to capture a life on the ocean wave!

My Cool Houseboat: An Inspirational Guide to Stylish Houseboats

Cool Houseboat decorIf you are lucky enough to own a houseboat so you literally live or vacation on the water, here’s the newly-published book for you!

As well as giving tips on how to live stylishly and practically in a small space on a boat, the book offers a tour of houseboats on waterways from as far afield as California, New York City, London, Paris, Amsterdam, and Berlin.  The author Jane Field-Lewis is a film and photography stylist who has also written books about cool caravans and sheds. I wonder what compact outdoor spaces she’ll write about next?

Beach House Happy: The Joy of Living By the Water

Beach House Happy decorBeach House Happy is written by Antonia van der Meer, the editor in chief of Coastal Living magazine, so she should know what she’s talking about! Antonia sails us around the world to look at the homes of people who are happy to live by the water and who know how to decorate their coastal nests to make every day feel like a vacation. This coffee table book offers 224 pages of sunny inspiration from Florida, Georgia, Cape Cod, California, Mexico, South Africa and many other coastal gems.

Now I think I’m ready for a piña colada and a hammock!

The Fleur-de-Lis in Home Decor

Many of the French antiques and antique-inspired home accessories that pass through our hands at EuroLuxHome.com feature the fleur-de-lis motif. The fleur-de-lis is one of the most enduring symbols in furniture and home decor and it has appeared in art, architecture, and heraldic designs for many centuries. Here’s some background on the fleur-de-lis and some ideas on how to incorporate this elegant symbol into your own decor around the house.

In French, ‘fleur’ means flower and ‘lis’ means lily, so a fleur-de-lis is a stylized lily. The one on this iron gate in New Orleans is a perfect example. It’s also sometimes spelled as fleur-de-lys.

Red Handwoven Pillow Fleur de LisAlthough the fleur-de-lis has cropped up in architecture, arts, flags and heraldry all over Europe, it is especially linked to France and to the French monarchy.

It has appeared on French flags and coats of arms for around a thousand years, and later it adorned French postage stamps too. The king of Spain and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg also display the motif in their coats of arms.

This new handwoven Aubusson throw pillow (one of our selection of fleur-de-lis pillows) shows how regal the motif looks, especially in rich colors like gold and red. It’s perfect for Renaissance style decor! The fleur-de-lis also works beautifully with French Country style.

Antique French Gothic BenchThere are various stories about the origins of the fleur-de-lis symbol, which also links it with the wild iris, but it was certainly used as a decorative or symbolic motif by the earliest civilizations as well as throughout European history.

The universal image also has religious meaning as a reference to the holy Mother Mary and it represents purity and chastity. With its 3 “petals”, the fleur-de-lis also symbolizes the Holy Trinity. Not surprisingly, it is often seen in Christian religious art and on antique religious objects.

This 1880 French Gothic antique bench is heavily carved in oak with flowery details including a gallery of fleur-de-lis along the top of the bench back.

Because the classic lines of the fleur-de-lis work with any kind of design scheme, you can add a touch of regal style anywhere in the home.

Here the fleur-de-lis is hand-painted by an artist on the stove hood of a Tuscan style kitchen in San Francisco.

The symbol is stately but still quite subtle on the floor of this traditional pool house.

The flourishing symbol also glitters overhead in this glass transom over a doorway. What a flamboyant way to greet visitors!

The fleur-de-lis translates nicely to finials on wood or iron curtain rods. These style of rod for drapes is so popular, we are all familiar with seeing it,  but not everyone knows that it’s a fleur-de-lis design.

Now you will start seeing fleur-de-lis designs everywhere!

Organize your Jewelry in Vintage Style!

My last posts were about decorative ways to display a collection and ways to display a ceramics collection. I’ve saved the sparkliest till last! Today I’m sharing some fabulous ideas to organize and display your jewelry collection in vintage style.  vintage style jewelry display

This idea from the Better Homes & Gardens blog is charming. It’s also easy to do. The framed jewelry display at the back is just a vintage style picture frame. You can paint any decorative frame you find in a flea market or thrift store. The back could be metal mesh or chicken wire backed with toile fabric for a French Country look. Or perhaps choose a heavyweight canvas – anything you can use to hook your earrings to the backing and pin up your necklaces.

Find a pretty vintage cake stand, either a metal one or a ceramic cake stand or another kind of tiered tray to add the finishing touch to the dressing table tableau!

You can also make your own cake jewelry holder from vintage china. This tutorial on Houzz shows you how. It looks like a vintage cake stand with a twist! I think it would pair perfectly in the boudoir with our custom-made vintage tea service chandeliers.

PIcture Frame Jewelry DisplayFor a more formal take on the picture frame idea, check out this Better Homes & Gardens suggestion. They’ve created a picture gallery of jewels! This would look at home in a Victorian bedroom. I guess the arrangement works best with a theme in each framed group. Put all your pearls in one frame, all your brooches in another, or perhaps group jewelry by color.

Or go completely crazy and deck a whole wall with baubles and beads! This jewelery display in a 1926 bungalow in Seattle looks just right for the space. It’s also very practical as it’s easy to spot the piece you want, then see how it looks in the ornate gilded mirror.

A dress form or mannequin is another vintage-inspired display idea that always looks pretty and romantic. Layer on necklaces of different lengths and a few brooches for maximum effect. You can also use a dress form to hold long silky scarves, or perhaps your favorite vintage hat of the moment.

Vintage brooch treeIf you have a collection of vintage brooches or earrings, cluster them closely together on a simple jewelry tree and let the jewelry itself do the talking… and the sparkling!

Jake's dog bed of toys

I can’t finish this mini series about ways to display your collections without sharing this photo of Jake. He seems to be going with the “cluster everything together” theory to show off his collection of toys. I promise you that our real-life dog is in there somewhere!

If you have a collection featured in your home decor, we’d love to hear how you display it. You can also post a photo on our EuroLux Facebook page.

Ways to Display Your Ceramics Collection

My last post was about decorative ways to display a collection. That included vintage teapots, cameras, and model trains, amongst other collectibles. The Welsh Dresser style hutch that I showed in that post is a classic way to display china and ceramics  – our antique buffets are great for this too! But today I’m sharing some other ways to display your ceramics collection.

Blue and white ceramics Delft

Blue and white ceramics, especially antique Delftware, always look fantastic grouped together. This photo from my earlier post about Blue and White Delftware proves it!  Remember that if you have three or more of any one type of item – or even three or more different objects in the same color – you immediately have a collection. Group them together for maximum impact.

This photo is also a good reminder to USE your ceramics collection whenever possible. Take your blue and white ginger jars and vases down off the shelf and flaunt them in a stunning table setting like this. Just add a few simple white flowers and wait for the admiring comments!

Usually you see blue and white vases and ginger jars displayed on a shelf or table, all on the same level. What I love about this photo is that the jars are clustered both on the console table and below it, creating more dimension in a double layer of visual interest.   The tasteful blue and white looks crisp and elegant against the mellow wood table and flooring.

Create a gallery display of your collection of plates to add a beautiful dash of color to a room.  This example blends traditional blue and white plates in all shapes and sizes with some punches of lively red. It’s the perfect combination for the rustic beachy feel of this space, or for a breezy maritime look in an ocean cottage. Before hammering any nails in the wall to hang plates in a gallery display, it’s best to get your layout arranged. Place the plates on a large table or on the floor for a test run!

Looking for a completely different way to display your collection of plates? The creative couple in this 1980s ranch style home used an antique picture frame to show off their plates. The picture frame is about four feet wide and the flourishing silhouette makes a focal point of the plates.  I think this display would look fabulous with our vintage teacup and spoon chandeliers!

To finish up this mini-series about displaying your collections, I’ll be back soon with a post about storing and displaying jewelry in creative ways to enhance your home decor.

If you’ve got any examples of great ways to display your ceramics, jewelry, or collections of anything else, send them my way! Tell us in the comments or on our EuroLux Home Facebook page!

Decorative Ways to Display a Collection

I love seeing how creative people are about displaying their collections of antiques, vintage pieces, or other collectibles. If you’re looking for inspiration to display your own collections, take a look at these decorative ways to display! Let’s start with a couple of traditional display options…

A classic Welsh Dresser or hutch makes any kitchen look cozy. In this VIctorian cottage kitchen the hutch is home to a collection of vintage teapots, teacups, and other ceramics and canisters. The teapots look especially charming grouped together on the top shelf. Although the shelves are very busy, that’s part of the friendly appeal – inviting us to come in and relax over a cup of tea.  Everything framing the dresser looks fairly clean-lined and clutter-free, so the dresser is the focal point here.

Jonathan Charles China Book Display CabinetFor a more formal living room, dining room or library, a display cabinet with glass doors is a traditional choice for displaying rare books and small antique objects and statues. This new Jonathan Charles cabinet from our antique and antique-inspired china and display cabinets  is a handsome example. The Jonathan Charles Windsor cabinet is crafted with crotch walnut and starburst inlaid doors, as well as adjustable lighting to highlight your precious collectibles. The angled shape of the cabinet shows off every single piece within, while glass doors keep everything dust-free and safe from spills and knocks.

How about this for a fun way to display a collection of vintage model trains? The bright colors and varying lengths of the trains could have looked a bit messy, but the creative homeowner in California tamed and streamlined the look by perching the trains on symmetrical white floating shelves. The trains add a lovely dash of color and whimsy to the otherwise traditional decor.

Vintage camera displayOur customers Aly & Bruce in Oregon were also clever and creative about displaying their collection of vintage cameras. When I wrote a customer spotlight about the antique Chinese cabinet they bought from us (the Late Qing Dynasty cabinet front left of this photo) the story of how the couple bought it was romantic enough. But then we got a bonus with a glimpse of their gorgeous line-up of cameras. Can you spot the cameras, in the arched alcoves above the book shelves?

vintage camera collection

Here’s a close-up (no pun intended!) of some of the cameras. They look wonderful arranged in simple rows about the books. Even this small space has been put to good use with lots of evocative visual impact, so it’s always worth thinking about how you can make use of even a sliver of shelf space. Perhaps you have a ledge above a doorway or a plate rail in the dining room that would work perfectly for your collection of vintage apothecary bottles?

I’ve got some more ideas to share about displaying ceramics so I’ll save those till next time. TIll then, I’d love to hear about your own decorative ways to display your collection. Tell us in the comments or on our EuroLux Home Facebook page!

Bookshelf: Paris Gardens and Inspirations

If you’re looking for some garden inspiration, these beautiful books on secret gardens and entertaining in the garden might encourage some new ideas to bloom! Even if you don’t have green thumbs, there’s nothing to stop you sighing over the alluring photos in these recently published garden books.

Garden Inspirations

Garden InspirationsWith ideas from flower arranging to table settings to using outdoor colors for interior home decor, Garden Inspirations aims to make the garden a part of your everyday life whether you are outside in the garden itself or bringing the garden indoors. The author, interior designer Charlotte Moss, takes readers on a trip through her own gardens, talks about the famous European gardens she has seen and offers tips on garden entertaining. She also collects beautiful vases to display her just-plucked blossoms… some of them are right there on the vibrant book cover! We too love blue and white ceramics, as you’ll know if you ever browsed all the antique Delft vases, plates and other pieces in our online store!

Private Gardens of Paris

Private Gardens of ParisGreg and I find most of our antiques in France so we are always happy to hop on a plane to Paris. It’s a great mixture of business and a little pleasure too. While we are there, we enjoy wandering around the stately Paris gardens. However, the ones featured in this book are private gardens… so the only way to get a glimpse is to leaf through these gorgeous photographs.

The private gardens tucked away from the bustle of the Parisian streets include fashion designers Hubert de Givenchy’s formal garden and Kenzo’s Japanese-style retreat.

In and out of Paris: Gardens of Secret Delights

Paris Gardens of Secret DelightHere’s another book about Paris gardens that was also recently published. There must be something in the air.  But you can never have too much Parisian style and there is plenty of creativity in these 30 gardens. Author Zahid Sardar, the design editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, explores projects ranging from the tiny terrace in the Marais owned by couturier Martin Grant to the rooftop in Montmartre belonging to Mexican painter MariCarmen Hernandez. (Do you think there is anything in the world more romantic than a Montmartre rooftop garden?)  American architect Michael Herrman also pays homage to Le Corbusier’s Champs Elysées garden for one of his clients.

After such a long cold winter for so many people, it’s a joy to get outside again, isn’t it? I hope these books will help you conjure up some magic for your own garden! Or leave a comment to tell us about your own favorite garden books.
