Mirrors & the Blues...

The new year is in full swing...shopping the last few weeks for several projects..sourcing antique & vintage mirrors...French mirrors are always in demand...I love old mirrors especially ones with ghosting..aging of the mercury glass...water gilt and old gilt..both have a patina that appeals to many...Also shopping for blue & white european textiles...Dark blue is one of the Pinterest 100 hottest trends for home decor...I love blue...it goes with many colors & styles and its so very French...Sharing a glimpse into my last few weeks and my love for old mirrors & the blues!

The last weeks of summer are upon us...many schools have began...talk of football is in the air and the first day of fall is just under six weeks away! The days of summer seemed to have slipped by very fast this year...the beginning of September here in Socal always gives us a hint of the beautiful fall days to come with cooler evenings & glowing sunsets. Its been a wonderful summer of traveling...antiquing & entertaining...looking forward to all the festivities of fall...we are buying & already selling many items for holiday entertaining...very much in demand right now...wood cheese boards...baquette baskets...old silver...urns with patina...confit pots...wooden tall candlesticks & anything to do with wine.

The Whites of Spring....

Spring in southern California is beautiful, long lasting & gently flows into Summer...while most flowers bloom here all year, a few are only in bloom now...the peonies being one & my fave always...have been in full bloom for the last several weeks & are always a treat! I love white flowers all year long, they seem to always compliment the off white painted French country furniture thats always at Rue 27 and the antique gilt I love...This Spring has been busy for us at Rue 27 Maison, several buying trips, a couple of weddings & lots of antique markets...a wonderful time of year...Sharing with you the whites this Spring at Rue 27 Maison...
