High Point Fall Market~part 1

They say that inspiration is everywhere
and somewhere that statement
is definitely true is at High Point Market.

(John Richard)

I am so thrilled to have been asked to come back as a blogger the Fall Market 
to share inspirations with you.
There are going to be several posts about the market and all that I fell in love with~
there is simply too much to share in just a post or two
I think I have already taken over 500 photos...
and I have only been here for a day and half.
So here are a few peeks at what I have been inspired by so far- more to come soon.

The first showroom I toured when I got here was John Richard
This is the first time I had been into their showroom and it was simply amazing.

The chandeliers and mirrors caught my eye
over and over again.
Gorgeous, gorgeous.

Vintage inspired and classic pieces and finishes were everywhere
I adored the mix of metallic with animal print ~very classy.

These cane chairs were so beautiful
and at the back of the showroom there was a little surprise.
A room filled with pops of color and a special guest who I was excited to meet.
More on that soon. ;)

Accentrics Home had some amazing pieces again
Many of you might remember that gorgeous little chest I shared 
in the Spring- it is available for purchase now
 you can read more here- Accentrics Home~ Spring 

This market- the distressed and vintage finishes were back

This piece wore several coats of paint- I loved it. 

This was another favorite of mine wearing that gorgeous bleached wood look

Also sharing a  peek of what is coming- they 
are amazing pieces. 

One of the neat things about Market is that as well as all the gorgeous furniture inspiration- 
there are accessories and just about everything Home decor related as well.
There is so much to see and take in- in some of the showrooms you it is literally 
a feast for your eyes in every corner.

At the NDI showroom, I indulged in my love of greenery and florals.

Some of my favorites are preserved boxwood topiaries,
moss and faux trees

oh... and yes, these floral beauties are faux. 
They looked amazingly real in person

There were so many beautiful faux and 
preserved pieces and stunning displays here.
I felt like I was in a flower shop
More on what my favorites were soon.

Well being that my blog is French Country Cottage
another weakness of mine... aubusson pillows and rugs 

Seriously, it was an Aubusson dream in this showroom

I also popped over to Joe Ruggiero to say hello 

His designs are beautiful- bold and with a masculine touch. 
I adored these tailored chair skirts and these gorgeous bold patterned chairs

Joe is so sweet and it was so nice to meet in person
after following each other along on instagram.
You can find more photos of finds that inspire me at market
by following along on instagram and FB

Next stop~
More details... more fabulous 
So much more to share about these showrooms in detail...
oh and all those accessories...
yes,  and the delicious antiques too.

I am off again at Market today to tour a few more showrooms
and will probably take another 500 photos 
and redesign my house completely in my mind another few times 
Love it.

Happy Monday!
