My Fun, New Accessory by My Favorite Shop!

I love having a new accessory in our home… thinking about which room to style it in and just the excitement I get from collecting a new treasure, makes my day! My amazing sponsors, Anthology House, carry a stunning collection of high style vintage pieces for any room in your home. I am always on the hunt for a sculptural pretty brass accent piece to add to my space or a client’s space, and they are always my first stop! I thought it would be fun to select a piece from their shop to show you how I would incorporate it into my home. Since I love unique, versatile accent pieces that can be placed on a book shelf, table top or desk, I chose this beautiful brass rooster…

I recently put together a fall family brunch, and I decided to add my new treasure to the table’s decor!

{I guess I have a thing for roosters, since I spy one in my kitchen, too!} 

When it arrived in the mail, I was so impressed with my little rooster’s stature and how heavy and sturdy he was! This piece is solid brass and is so amazing in person. The shop owners, Amy and Alyse, did a wonderful job with the packaging, as it was very well wrapped and enclosed in the box. The package even included a sweet handwritten note and a shop tag with pretty coordinating ribbon string…

It’s definitely the details you notice and this shop is one of a kind. I am so happy to say that we share a partnership through this blog and I know this won’t be my last purchase from their amazing shop!! Speaking of my purchase, this also won’t be the last place you’ll see him… this accessory is so versatile, I will be placing him in many different spots this year.

{Sponsor Spotlight} Anthology House

I am super excited to introduce you again to my amazing sponsor, Anthology House. This eclectic, regency style etsy shop is owned by Amy and Alyse. They always amaze me with their vintage finds and unique accessories that could work in any room of your home. When shopping at box stores, you can often tell if all of your pieces were from one shop. But with Anthology House, you could literally buy up every piece and it would still bring that collected over time vibe to your home. I have decided to showcase 4 of the shop’s pieces and how they would work in a living room design…

I went with a chic black, cream and gold living room. It’s can be dressy, yet also comfortable and casual. The Greek Key Milk Glass Jar would look amazing on a shelf and can be found at their shop HERE. The Rembrandt Regency Lamp actually comes in a pair and can be found at the shop HERE. The pair would be amazing on either side of a console, behind a sofa. The Black Lacquer Box has this beautiful gold bamboo detail and can be found at their shop HERE. I imagine that on a coffee table, on top of a few great design books. And that stunning Brass Fireplace Screen would be the showstopper in any home and can be found at their shop HERE.

Here are some of my other favorites…

Can you tell I love their shop?!? Thanks so much to Amy and Alyse for continuing to be amazing sponsors!

{Sponsor Spotlight} Liza Hathaway Matthews

I am excited to introduce you to one of my sponsors! Liza Hathaway Matthews is a talented abstract artist who creates beautiful paintings inspired by nature, design and pattern. Her contemporary paintings bring that needed pop of color to any room and can be inspired by the garden right outside your window. I truly believe art is the must have accessory in any home. It brings a sense of warmth and a personal vibe to your space. Her use of color and fluid brush strokes are so pretty. Let’s just get right to the art, shall we?!?

This piece is titled Pocket Full of Posies
24×30 piece made with Oil, Acrylic and Charcoal

This piece is titled Casablanca
30×40 piece made with Oil, Acrylic and Charcoal
Inspired by the garden
This piece is titled Honeysuckle
Inspired by a vine outside Liza’s window
This piece is titled Paradise
24×24 piece made with Oil, Acrylic, and Charcoal
For fun, I have decided to include Liza’s Casablanca piece into a design board.´╗┐ I pictured this painting in a dining room, above a buffet that houses accessories and serving pieces. This is what I came up with…
I chose furniture and accessory pieces that are muted and neutral, to allow the art to take center stage. The color of the rug was pulled from the greenery of the painting, yet still allows your eye to be drawn to the art piece.
I love how each of her pieces are so different yet stay true to the theme of the outdoors and nature. To see more of her beautiful paintings, like her on facebook HERE or click on her stylish ad on my blog’s sidebar. Look for the heading, Stylish Sponsors. You can also e-mail Liza directly at: brent.matthews@comcast.net
Happy Shopping !!

{Sponsor Spotlight} Anthology House

You might already know this about me, but I love etsy! For every design client that I have {and myself}, I am on the site, looking for unique finds at great prices. I am so excited to introduce you to my newest sponsor and amazing etsy shop, Anthology House. This eclectic shop, owned by Amy and Alyse, has the perfect accessories to complete any room in your home! From gorgeous pops of color to Hollywood Regency style, this shop has that vintage piece you are looking for! I thought it would be fun to showcase a couple of my favorite items from their shop in design boards. First up, is a pink, gold, black and white living room…

To create this board, I included the Pink Bassano Jars and Gold Table Lamps from the shop. I think these accessories would live happily in this space. Just to show how versatile these pieces can be, here are the same items in a sweet girl’s room…

This room is fun and lively, and those jars complete this space!
