This is the
piece de resistance...
a beautiful storybook armoire
fit for a princess...
maybe even A Queen.
She has a royal air about her...
and wears a most fantastic frenchy crown...
Gracefully adorned with hand painted flowers
with gorgeous carved shell handles
She wears beautiful carved flowers accents
& has a bombe chest bottom with a slanted top drawer and sides.
Of course, every lady needs a bit of mystery about her...
Inside the top doors, there's a little surprise...
dainty shelves & three lingerie drawers decorated with a flower bouquet.
She is just as pretty from the sides as she is from the front.
She's most definitely a drama queen and loves the attention she gets.
This is my absolute favorite piece of the furniture I have been sharing recently
(shhh.. don't tell the other pieces)
I just about fell over when I saw this armoire. I literally had to stop and compose myself!
The set is all made in Italy~
around mid-century but definitely has an elegant french look to them.
Soft creamy paint (though it looks more yellow in the pictures)
gorgeous teal accents, pastel florals and
a bit of pretty gilding for a little glam & drama.
She holds court in the little sitting room/ hall area off the bedroom.
(I apologize~ The lighting in this room is not good for taking photos
and it has been snowing and raining all weekend which makes it even darker)
All hail the Queen!
HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!!!
Hope my French is correct in this post! lol!
I am so excited that it is officially spring
though you wouldn't know by looking outside
snow. snow. snow...
and more rain and possibly snow on the way...
wait a minute...
I thought I was living out here in SUNNY CALIFORNIA?!?
What a strange winter...
