Sometimes I want to keep all the good stuff to myself (you should see the things I don't mention here) but did want to let you know that Christopher Filley has just returned from the home of one of his dear friends and is providing foster care for some of her things. (You see Faith and Charity above - Hope must be springing eternally somewhere else.)
A full-size chinoiserie bed being one of my favorites.
Hmmm...headboard, footboard and painted rails, too. "Wouldn't it be great if you could float it in the room?" asked Christopher when I was there. Indeed.
The top. I mean, really.
And this window, which did not come from the estate, is fantastic. I've seen its sibling at the home of one of my favorite local designers, backed with mirror, adding depth and sparkle to her patio. Who couldn't use a little more depth and sparkle?
