Bringing the outdoors in

We love decorating with garden elements, classical images, and colors from nature.  Garden decor is one of the easiest ways to make your space feel connected to the outdoors when you can't physically be outside.

What are some great ways to bring the outdoors in to your space?

Check out some tips for bringing the outdoors in below, and see two items from our online store that can give you that look....oh and we put them on sale at over 25% off this week!  Woohoo!!!

August Design House - Inspiration File

Mark it down!  It's been three months in the making....our next Design House event is August 3, 4, & 5, and we can't wait! 

Hopefully, you've checked out our first stop motion video.  {It's linked here if you haven't seen it yet.}

We have loaded in the furniture and we're adding in the next layer of accessories.  While we do that, I wanted to briefly share some inspiration photos that inspired some of our furniture choices.

Stop motion video debut

We've had the idea of using stop motion videos to highlight our decorating process for quite some time now.

Finally, our first video is here and we think it's super-cute!

Check out the video for our August Design House, where we've filled the house with new looks and a container full of new furniture.

Seven under $25

Hey everyone!  We just put several items in our online store, Shop Lucketts this week.

We were able to get a few bed crowns back in stock, along with our mini chalkboards, which are perfect for making little reminders and sharing favorite quotes.

Along with restocking, we added two new clocks, a beautiful vase set, and our very favorite PARIS sign.  {click here to see them

A paint update

We know there are lots of anxious fans awaiting Miss Mustard Seed's paint line. 

Last month, we posted about Marian's paint line {you can read about it here}. 

We are expecting to get our paint shipments at The Old Lucketts Store in early August.

Pin it Wednesdays #15-Pie Safes

On this week's Pin It Wednesday we are featuring pie safes.  They come into the store all the time and we thought it would be fun to show images of them incorporated into the home.

What's Goin' On?

I wanted to share some updates from this week.

Seems like everyone is in a million places at once and we're all working hard to get the Design House ready for the 3rd, 4th & 5th of August.

New furniture, new paint, a buying trip, giant post-its, and new online products are a few of the updates from the last two days.

Where did that come from? - part 2

A few days ago, we featured some items from The Old Lucketts Store and The Design House. 

Today we're featuring a few more items and giving you some behind the scenes details about where they came from.

Here are some items from The Old Lucketts Store and The Lucketts Store Design House, and my {paraphrased} conversations with the dealers about how they "get their stuff."

Where did that come from?

We're always asked where our items come from.  That question is a difficult one to answer, but one we hope to shed some light on in a two part series this week.

As a "worker girl", I've always been fascinated by where things come from and just what it takes to find, restore, and get something in the shop ready to sell.

I've asked the dealers over the years where they find things, and learned it's not easy restocking each week and coming up with new ideas.

Lobby update

Over the weekend, I shared a few pictures of Pete's new space {here}.

Marian was at Lucketts over the weekend working on her new space in the lobby.

Here are a few pictures of what she's been working on.

Pete's new space

More moves this past week over at the shop. 

It's been really exciting to watch, but a lot of work for our vendors to move and rearrange their spaces.

Pete's space is coming along quite nicely.  The back room now has his signature hip industrial feel mixed with lots of great metal, leather/fur, and wood pieces.

Aside from lots of great decorating ideas and vignettes, I always find one {or two or three} really special pieces I would just love to take home with me.

Store to Abode Fridays #17 - glass front cabinets

For this Store to Abode Friday, I'm focusing on glass front cabinets. 

These cabinets are beautiful and functional ways to show off your treasures.

We tend to have these at The Old Lucketts Store quite often; right now we have several beauties in various sizes and finishes. 

I wanted to give you a few ideas for how to display items in these cabinets, including a few places you can put glass front cabinets that you may not have thought about before.
