It was a refreshing look considering where it was before! Still love the custom drapes as much as I did the day they were hung!
As the story goes, you buy one thing and that changes something else. Such was the story of the family room.
So take a gander at it now!!!
The above portrait of an English Naval Officer caught my attention a few months back on a "pickin" trip. He is headed above the mantle just as soon as I find a replacement for this spot. The lamp...don't you just love the lamp?! Picked it up at Scott's back in November, it was love at first sight.
The wooden shield over the tv armoire is a piece I discovered or rather uncovered in a junk store over in Columbus, Georgia. It is solid wood and looks to be hand carved. It is in two pieces fixed together, a wing nut/bolt holds the front shield to the birds. The sales lady believed it to be from either Spain or Russia. After I got home, I Googled wooden shields from Russia and this one looks like several of the ones I found.
The vignette on this table has changed up a few times since I moved the gate leg table into position. The large blue and white platter came from England, the guys at Sweet Home Plantation brought it back from one of their shopping trips. About a year ago I decided that I needed as many English Oak Biscuit barrels as I could find...Sister joined me in the latest obsession! To finish the vignette off I just added a few of my fav design books.
This is still the prettiest corner in our house!
