I typically encourage my clients to spend their moola on a few timeless antique pieces. The niche seen below is brilliantly located, it can be seen from several rooms in this house. My design concept was to utilize this niche with a large console or built – in. As you folks know a built–in means custom, and that comes with a fat price tag. We chose to bring in a console with a thick glass top 60” wide. As you can see the niche jogs out quite a bit more on the right, than it does on the left.
Missy was fortunate in that the previous homeowner had installed upgraded lighting throughout the house. Seen below the recessed lighting splendidly placed washes the niche walls.
Missy’s new console being installed, we’re so excited!
Rustic corbels from Restoration Hardware's 20th – Century collection. Aren't they massive???? They are elaborately hand–carved of reclaimed teak.
The mirror was a garage sale find. ( yay!)
By turning up the scale – literally – this console brings much warmth into this room.
Behold the striking console in it’s new home ( YAY!)
Missy styled this stunning dreamy holiday vignette, no doubt she’s having fun playing with this new toy! We love the sparkling mercury glass.
Give your home a completely fresh new look.
I invite you to join me for Part three, coming up soon.
