One Room at a Time

I continue reworking each of the rooms... I went with a book/library theme in the Hemingway area. Rich warm colors and of course lots of books.
At auction last night I was able to get a great barrel table and a few deep tone small items to help with the theme . Although the cougar or the bear skin rug that sold would have really given the room a Roosevelt feel....I resisted.

STUFFED COUGAR NEARLY FIVE FEET LONG

As usual an item sold before I took the photo of it...sorry. The item that sold so fast was a large clock I hung above the mantle. It gave the look of a gentleman's den to the room. I'm sure I'll get something else to put there before the week is out.


FOOT STOOL SOLD

THE HEMINGWAY ROOM WITHOUT A CLOCK OVER THE MANTLE

With all these books in the front of the shop, it might just put you in the mood to do some reading. Be sure to page through our loan library of decorator books.

The green lamp to the left of the cougar is just lovely in person...the shop looks great! Lots of new home decor to fill in those empty spaces now that our Christmas decorations are down...
