Margaret has officially touched down in Europe and has begun her spring buying trip. This year she’s on the hunt for a few things for the store in particular. Striking dark wood pieces- these heritage pieces solidify any room and create a beautiful balance when mixed among pieces from different era’s.
This Sarah Whittenbraker Interiors living room is a wonderful example of the perfect use of many of the antiques that Margaret pursues on her trips and how she imagines their future transformations to be. Whittenbraker uses traditional lines in many of her pieces but she mixes these lines with bright, modern colors and whimsical patterns. The use of contemporary art and colors creates a strong juxtaposition between the traditional lines that could be interpreted as dated on their own.
In the Living room you can see the bright teal featured on the wicker backed arm chairs, even with a thin teal piping on the embossment of the chairs features. These lines are again found in the one dimensional black coffee table that while featuring traditional curves is executed in a modern material allowing the pieces to compliment each other but also meld two entirely different eras. So get browsing on the Antique and Artisan Gallery, I’ve been dreaming of these in a bright Matthew Williamson for Osborne and Little fabric…
Look for a piece that will bring your space to the next level. And if you don’t find what strikes your fancy there, give us a call or shoot us an email and Margaret will keep her eyes out for your perfect piece as she continues her tour.
