Let's Have Lunch


Think antiques are not for you?  Can't appreciate their granny goodness?  Or, perhaps you have them but don't quite know how to use them to your advantage.  I think antiques are timeless, chic and stylish and a great investment.  Join me for lunch at Webster House, April 8th, 12 o'clock to discuss using antiques in a younger, fresher way.  Grab a friend, we'll have a laugh and kick around some ideas.  You can register here.

Mrs. B how utterly unfair to your devoted readers who don't live in KC. I am tempted to buy a ticket and just pretend I'm there. Please share your presentation with those of us who don't live in the region and would like to be a part of the seminar. Don't keep your devotees in the dark, PLEASE.

Great food, great antiques and a you, that'll be a fun day.

I wish I were closer and I'd hop over--I love the updated mix of period antiques with mid-century and great new pieces. And don't get me going about period antiques and modern art. Have a great luncheon--I'll be there in spirit. Mary

Two words: You Tube

We'll be watching for it!

Kristie said...

Wow, I would love to attend! I just started collecting and am in need of a youthful approach. Please post pictures!

Can't imagine life without old friends, that's what my antiques feel like to me, whether inherited or acquired. Wish I was close by to join in the festivities!

I'm in. Need guidance on antiques and a yummy meal doesn't hurt. Looking forward to lunching with you, Mrs. B!

JPW said...

Looks like they framed some Gracie or de Gournay remnants. Nice idea for those who can't afford to do the whole room.

quintessence said...

Totally agree with you of course - antiques add the gravitas and gentility to any space. So wish I could come!

linda said...

Oh, Patricia, I wish I could be there, cheering you on and hearing you in person! Best of Luck!!!!

I didn't know people didn't want antiques. I sell a great deal of new furniture, but my first choice is always the old.
Best,

Has anyone seen the new book, Charlotte Moss Decorates?

I like what she said, "your decorating should be a reflection of your life".

Certainly that is the mix of the old with the new and most importantly, a personal space that one feels comfortable.

I bought some crystal teacups at an estate sale the other day. I mentioned this to the owner of the local antique mall. "I'll bet you got them cheap", she said, "This younger generation won't buy crystal or anything they can't put in a dishwasher". How sad. Plenty of time for texting and Twitter, but none to own something timeless.

Hi Patricia-


Can you hitchhike to KC?
I do love an adventure and would adore to be in your fan group in the audience.
Keep us posted on highlights--and do provide pix.
cheers, DIANE

Wish I could come - I know it will be a great time for all!!!

I think even the oldest antique in the youngest of spaces can add a touch of "Proust" and the temperance for lost time. In this fast paced world, a nod to the past certainly helps to savour a time gone by.
Love to join you for a virtual lunch, hope you can share a video of your chat.

Would LOVE to hear this! This is something I try to promote in my daily work day! A "modern" room without a bit of history always seems lacking.

buyaionaccount said...

The room looks exquisite. The mixture of modern and antiques is quite genius, mediated by that stripe carpet I guess, perfect.

LiveLikeYou said...

What a great topic. Would love to attend. Antiques reinvented and used in new modern ways creates the best interiors today. Love to honor history in design.

a)I only just saw this and b) I live on the other side of the world! Did you have fun?

Mrs. Blandings said...

Next week! I'll keep you posted.

that's life! said...

Whoops! Guess that shows I can't read - or rather, I *shouldn't* read when tired.

I'll be watching - bwah, hah, hah!

mary said...

Hi Patricia, This is a super great topic. Nope, great antiques are definitely not for the granny-taste crew. They can really make a room be a show-stopper. Wish I could join you.
