"Villa Perfecta"

Perhaps my favorite quote in our most recent publication is the following, stated by Cindy and Jane's client:
"We wanted as much light coming into the house as possible, to live outdoors as much as possible, and, since it's right on the ocean, to be able to walk through the living room with sand on our feet and not have to worry about it."
This is exactly what Jane, Cindy and the talented architect they teamed up with (Thomas M. Kirchoff) created. The home is absolutely gorgeous with neutral tones throughout- allowing the outside in. Of course, my scanned images do not do the palette justice, but I hope you forgive me and then run quickly to the nearest grocery store or news stand to pick up your own copy and melt into the pages.
Believe me, it is worth it!



 The November-December 2012 Veranda article, entitled "Villa Perfecta," does a wonderful job at whetting your whistle in preparation for the release of Jane and Cindy's upcoming book, The Welcoming House: The Art of Living Graciously. As hinted in the article, this featured home is also one of the leading muses giving much inspiration to their book. We could not be more excited by Veranda's interest in this gorgeous Palm Beach jewel or the upcoming release of the book. There will be much more to come as we get closer to the release date, but for now... I hope that you enjoyed the sneak peak Veranda was able to pass along to all of us.

Fun new papers

Gailbraith and Paul is a favorite Circa go-to for prints. They have just sent us the new tear sheets for patterns recently introduced in their wallpaper line. The patterns are available to order as fabrics as well.
"Designed by Liz Gailbraith and printed in our Philadelphia studio, our newest product elegantly translates the artisanal hand of our printed fabrics to Wallpaper. You can see all the subtle surfaces and textures in this assortment of existing and new patterns printed in a wide palette of fresh yet sophisticated colors. These wallpapers are both gracious and fun, subtle and bold, classic and original."
And, as always, all of these patterns can be custom colored! Please call the design studio if anything interests you.

Not only can you custom color, you can also color substitute. So if most of the standard colors a paper or fabric is just what you need, but one or two colors are off these can be changed into whatever color you would like! You can choose from colors that Gailbraith and Paul produces or they can match a sample that you provide!

These little piggies went to market....

The Fall 2012 High Point Furniture Market is drawing to a close and I wanted to give our fabulous blog followers a peak at some of the pieces the Circa clan saw and loved. As always, it was a fun day for all- filled with lots and lots of walking! Whitney and Rebecca (from our Birmingham store) were able to fly in to go to High Point with the other girls, while Addison and I held down the fort in Charlotte! Here are some shots the girls took for me to share with you... I hope you enjoy them!! And these styles are ready to be ordered!
Remember: Lee is guaranteeing Christmas deliveries on orders placed by November 9th!! This may be a great idea to pass along to Santa a little early to ensure a VERY happy Christmas morning!
