I want to share with you House Beautifuls pick of the month. This bold New York kitchen includes all the necessities for a perfect family
home. A blue periwinkle color verging on cobalt tile backsplash takes over one whole wall. It's the one big, bold stroke of color, but boy, is it big. Heavy-duty marine lights above the island, so trendy! Deschutes sconces above the windows from Rejuvenation. The bistro stools are made in France and can be customized in various colors and patterns. All paint in the kitchen is Ralph Lauren Paint's Pocket Watch White in high gloss.
Mesmerizing isn’t it ?
The professional-style stainless-steel Garland range is paired with a Rangemaster hood.
The blue glass bottles on the countertop repeat the color of the blue glass tiles.
The upper cabinets are faced with ribbed glass, which veils the contents.
2-by-6-inch glass tiles.
The gooseneck faucet by Dornbracht is handy for filling a tall lobster pot.
White Manhattan Calacatta marble $$$$ . . .sigh. . . , with 11 coats of sealer on it. The designer found that 11 coats works best.

Delightful Antique Script
A few months ago I was visiting with my lovely friend and antique collector, Jennifer - The Old Painted Cottage. I found myself marveling at several elegant antique
documents she had displayed in her living room. I excitedly asked her “ What are these documents ?” She replied “ They are official French government documents.” With a little arm twisting, she agreed to share copies. :-) I have a hunch their from the early 1800s.
I love the charming sweeping, flowing lines of ornamental script. If you look close, you can tell when the writer would need to reload his pen. The script becomes more faint.
Eye-catching, isn’t it?
No doubt treasures worthy of framing. Penmanship has become a lost art and who doesn’t dig French antiques!!! These documents are sought after by collectors for their decorative elegance.
Jennifer has a trained eye for wonnnderful antiques!
I love the charming sweeping, flowing lines of ornamental script. Eye-catching, isn’t it?
These delightful French documents even have official markings.
Who would have thunk? :-)
They are great to decorate a home or office.
Search online auctions, folk art galleries, antique stores, flea markets, and vintage-paper fairs.
