Hi Everyone! Your DESIGNER INTERPRETER, Cheryl Hucks, is back from the High Point Furniture Market and from working on a fun, exciting design project. I cannot wait to show you pics of my design adventure!
While at the High Point Furniture Market I saw so many beautiful showrooms!! When visiting the market I take photos that help me interpret why designers use certain metals, furniture and accessories.
You probably already know the new metal finish goes by the name soft gold or brushed gold or antique brass. It is everyone –even in fashion. You may have recently purchased a new necklace with a gold metallic finish or a dress or handbag that is embellished with gold metal. When Brushed nickel was first introduced as the latest and greatest metal finish, I still used my gold and brass. Shiny brass was popular in the 8Os and it now creeping back into home furnishings. Do not freak out–brushed nickel and polished nickel are still popular. As well as, oiled bronze.
Candice Olson’s Highland House Furniture console has an antique brass nail head trim that is ageless! It is paired with a more sleek no fuss shape and the latest neutral, gray. The dark wooden top adds the perfect amount of warmth. Enough about the console table. Let’s talk about the fabulous accessories! What is your favorite? The large round “soft gold” trimmed mirror or the pair of candlestick lamps? I cannot decide! I will take all three! To complete the symmetry a pair of mini ottomans were added under the table. Here you have a perfect example of a Small Space with Big Design! Wouldn’t this be magnificent on that small wall in the corner that you cannot decide what furniture to use? Maybe in a foyer or niche. Do you have the perfect location for this Candice Olson console table? http://www.candiceolson.com/
Just in case you do not know about Candice Olson, a Canadian interior designer is the host of the Toronto-based home-makeover shows Divine Design and Candice Tells All, which air on the W Network in Canada and on HGTV in the United States. I met her at the Century Furniture press party during the High Point Furniture Market.Very nice lady! Love her furniture for Highland House-Century and her new Outdoor furniture by Century!
