Summer Sneak Peek!

Hi Villager!

Only one full week of school left and summer 2014 is officially upon us! Apart from the heat, I am really excited for this summer. My babies are just old enough to start traveling with us and I’m excited to embark on a few summer adventures with them this year. One of these trips will be a trip to France and I CANNOT wait to share another behind the scenes look with you!

Another very exciting project that we’ve been working on is a major renovation of the exterior of our building and the inside of our shop. We’ve added a lot of new vendors & that means even more extraordinary and unique inventory. This is the second time in the past 2 years we’ve done an expansion and it has been thrilling!

And when you come in, you’re going to be delighted! I’m so excited I wanted to share some of the fresh looks we are seeing in home decor for this summer and throughout the year. These looks are definitely trends you are going to be seeing for a long time to come. Here a few that I’m really loving right now. Now this may be a little different than what you’re used to seeing, so share with me your ideas – love it or leave it?

We’re seeing a lot of amazing mid-century modern touches throughout the shop and these are a few pieces I’d love to use in my projects.

I really love this gorgeous vintage brass fretwork tray paired with vintage crystal.

Available at Village Antiques, $275 (CKL)

What I’m really loving about these upcoming trends are the different colors & textures like this vintage citrine yellow chair. Couldn’t you imagine this paired with a gorgeous French settee or similar scale side chair to create a pop?

Available at Village Antiques, $1,250 (CAD-2)

And check out this mid-century painting L.O.V.E! In a summer home or year round home – wow!

Brass has been all the rage, but I really love this statement “over-sized” brass horse – a very unique piece.

Speaking of events, be sure to register for our upcoming events. Our half-yearly sale is almost here and it’s amazing – if you’re working on a home project this is the time to advantage of great deals on beautiful pieces & really be a savvy shopper.

This summer is going to kick-off a lot of fun events for you and us at the shop including one of our most asked for design events which I’ll be hosting in July! I don’t want to spill the details yet – but it’s something a lot of you have been asking for help with!
