INSPIRATION FOR MY FURNITURE LINE

In my line of work I find wonderful pieces of furniture and fall in love with them....when they are "one of a kind"..end of story.
 A year or so ago , I decide to contact my very talented friends Chris Walker and Glenn Wilson to reproduce some of the pieces. Not copy..but create a legacy to all of the things I have loved and left behind on projects and in the cottages and houses that I have restored and sold. I become very attached to my "finds" and find sometimes it is very difficult to let go of them.
 I have been so busy working that I have not had much time  to devote to this fun task. Every time I walk into my house I see the prototypes we have created and  I am INSPIRED to continue with our plan of beautiful new/old things.
The cottages I have done on Tybee Island will always be a source of inspiration. Hours of work and planning go carefully into each one.
They  begin in a pitiful and neglected state and  become magical pieces of art for clients to love and enjoy.

     WITH THE ADDITTION OF BEAUTIFULFRENCH KNOBS   (A BIT BOHEMIAN,I THINK)

The color of the dresser came from a turquoise throw pillow that I had match. I am alway styling something ...thus the name" Style me turquoise"



The color of the chest is Sea biscuit named after 'Sea biscuit cottage'  ..not to be confused with Luscious Little cottage pink named after the LLC.(the Luscious Little Cottage)

ps: My Dad always said "Rome wasn't built in a day" and I can't find more than 24 hours in a day no matter how hard I look !!!!!!

I'm in love!!! The turquoise dresser is unreal - one of my favorite colors, but I'm crazy about the Sea Biscuit - what a warm tropical and yet south west color...your furniture line is beyond beautiful and so inspirational. Wow!!!

I love what you said about not finding enough hours in a day and your Dad is so right..Rome was not built in a day..(no matter how hard we try)
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth
