Design House Sale - June 30th

I went through the Design House today to get a sneak peek of what has been marked down for the sale on Saturday.

There were some killer oversize furniture pieces and mirrors, a great mix of old and new accents, and great art.  Most items are on sale, and Kim was still making additional mark downs today. 

The Design House sale is June 30th, 10am to 5pm.  The Design House is on the same property as The Old Lucketts Store ---- 42350 Lucketts Road in Leesburg, VA.

See you there...

Store to Abode Fridays #16 - Frenchy blue furniture

Today we're showcasing Frenchy blue furniture on Store to Abode Fridays.

These serene pieces are a great way to commit to a color, without going bright. 

If you love to do-it-yourself, Marian has a few colors in her new milk paint line (available at the Lucketts Store in July) that lend themselves well to this look.

Update on the "Whyte Estate"

The scorching weather has the boys (you know Henry, he is everywhere) and I over at the "Whyte Estate" in small doses this week.  We are going through the house and picking out the original items that we are going to keep and implement into different designs.  This is helping me narrow down the list that seems to be a zillion lines long of what I need to will to gather in the up coming months.
