Beautiful Inspiration ~ Rough Luxe

I hope you’re having a great week so far!  I’ve always been enamoured with weathered pieces.  There is something alluring and charming about pieces that have a past. Where they have been, who has loved them…

The Carolyn Quartermaine fabric on this antique chair has me swooning
Distressed silk wall panel at Warwick Castle
I love the mix of unrefined  and elegance in this bath.
Perhaps it’s my love and appreciation of the craftsmanship that went into them.  Each piece is a reflection of the dedication and precision of the craftsman who spent days, weeks, or longer, laboring over each detail.
Reclaimed doors from southern France conceal the bar at Sela Ward’s Bel Air home.
 This door would give a fabulous welcome home!
 Distressed mirrors are a favourite.  I’ve incorporated mirrored furniture into my bedroom… giving it a feel of glamour and a nod to the golden age of the 1920’s.

 Salvaged antique fireplace utilized as headboard.  This piece is so unique and impressive.

If you want to incorporate the look of antique and period pieces in your home but don’t have time to search antique markets, Restoration Hardware offers collections of classical pieces that are inspired by “Old Europe.”

They offer various finishes and 70+ fabrics for the upholstered dining chairs.

I plan to order a set of these chairs in a darker finish with velvet upholstery.  I haven’t decided on the colour yet but the lilac shade featured above is stunning.

The Versailles chair is one of my favourite pieces and it comes in a child’s version as well.

xoxo, B

    I too am a huge fan of Restoration Hardware … I love the distressed/aged look of the pieces. We have one of the coffee tables and it is my fav piece next to the leather sofa (also RH). Happy week ..xo C. (HHL)
