This weekend’s adventures were full of all sorts of good things. From the Ravens winning their game against the Patriots this weekend to checking out the goods at Housewerks and The Antique Exchange, it was all good.
In a recent post, Things That Inspire did a story about Japanese Glass Floats that was so interesting, so it was a lot of fun to visit Housewerks and see that they’d just gotten more than a dozen of these gorgeous green glass balls. Some of them even had their original ropes on them. As TTI said, they work well in both a traditional and a contemporary interior, and either inside or in the garden.
Here are some other things that caught my eye at Housewerks.
Corey coffee pots. Their architectural lines are amazing.
What would look better lighting a corner niche that this Empire State Building lamp?
After Housewerks, we headed uptown to visit The Antique Exchange. I love their tagline: Classic Meets Current. I hadn’t been to this location before since they just moved about a year ago, but fell in love with what they had, as well as how it was displayed. In addition to selling antiques, they’ve also expanded to provide design services.
The late afternoon lit up this gorgeous linen pillow.
Loved this pagoda pillow and the jade green chinoiserie tealight holders.
Wasn’t I just reading that turquoise is Pantone’s colour pick for 2010? Looks like they got the memo, too!
I loved this vignette, with the antique silver dresser set. Loads more pretty pillows. I think I am sensing a theme here!
I loved the idea of the mirror at the bottom of the stairs.
The late afternoon sunlight lit up this room full of treasures and trinkets.
All in all, a very good weekend. Don’t forget to go visit “Dancing Through Paris” who was the winner of the Decorating is Fun book!
