Stephanie was kind enough to invite me to her house, I had been hearing about her house all week after the tour. Stephanie has created such a warm vintage living space in a wonderful new house. In the store many customers exclaim, "I love Antique and Vintage furniture and accessories, but I live in a new house" well Stephanie proves that it can be done.
I have found my design soul sister, I already knew this since she always buys my favorite finds. We had a fabulous time walking through her house sharing NYC flea market stories.
Stephanie has a fantastic attention to detail. I loved the chalkboard on her kitchen cabinet with french writing.
This is where her dog, jack's food and water is kept on a silver tray with this darling chalkboard. Now that we have a new puppy, I'll have to think of something this creative.
Stephanie and her husband found a antique wood from a salvage store and built their fire place mantel.
Her table setting was delightful! Stephanie used different heights to add drama and interest along with unique found objects. Beautiful!
I use found objects and items with personal meaning in my own decorating. When we have company, people always wander around looking at my vintage finds. I always have a story or memory of where I found the treasure. Stephanie has a garden urn filled with shells from a trip to Florida with her family.
Thank you Stephanie for sharing your house and wonderful holiday spirit. I am posting more photos of Stephanie's house and holiday decorating on Face Book. To view click on the above Face Book button and become a Friend.
