my home away from home







It had been too long since I visited my good friends Bill and Barry at Antiques on Augusta in Greenville, SC. Those guys are amazing. I took a couple of quick shots recently of one special little corner. Bill and Barry commissioned a local artist to paint a few large canvases for a design project last year. Now they are in the shop on display. Awesome dark and moody colors in a scene depicting the low country south; and so dramatic looking in this corner. And that linen-covered custom headboard with oversized nail heads?      
I may move in.

Sounds like a great plan Donna, I could cozy up right there as well!
Both the canvases and bed are wonderful.

Bill and Barry are fantastic! My dad, who lives in Greenville, and I have a booth at Antiques on Augusta. I always look forward to visiting to see what new things Bill and Barry have brought in... they have a fantastic eye!

Those painted canvases (walls) give it such a feeling of depth. Is there room for another bed?
