Traditional Home March 2010

I just loved this kitchen seen in Traditional Home March 2010! It's just so clean and fresh. I especially love the little Peter Dunham prints that they used on the seat cushions and the bench. Peter Dunham Textiles makes really fun prints: http://www.peterdunham.com/

Haiti Relief

Haiti's tragedy and devestation has truly been on all of our minds. Please visit the American Red Cross' website to make a donation or text "Haiti" to 90999 and make a $10 donation. Thank you!

Accessories: What a difference

This warmer weather has brought all of us out of hibernation around here and encouraged some wishful Spring cleaning! Julie & Patricia decided to tackle our lamp and lampshade inventory! Our shop is filled with lamps but we always have more table lamps than we have room to display. They've reorganized to make it easier for you to find just what you're looking for. With 3 tables full of lamps in the back, surely we have what you need!

We also carry inventory of beautiful Lux Lampshades in all sizes, colors, and styles. If we don't have what you're looking for in stock we can order it asap!

One rule to live by: When you're feeling tired of a space and can't change everything in your room, change the accessories! You'll have a new room! New lamps, pillows, & throws make a world of difference!
