Rebekah's Pro Styling Tips
1. Floral D.B. Bedell English porcelain plates (item #163184)
I love to mix and match dinnerware and these plates would be so pretty mixed with plain white china for when you entertain or a holiday.
2. Gilt iron decorator arch shaped atrium mirror (item #157844)
This mirror is so perfect for above a fireplace to add a touch of glam with the gilt iron.
3. Glenn C. Sheffer (Amer., 1881-1948) oil on board rocky coastline (item #170349)
This beautiful oil painting would be perfect for a hallway or even nestled in to a bookcase for a pop of color. The frame is so stunning and is art in itself.
4. Currier & Ives "The Miniature Ship Red, White, & Blue" lithograph (item #170346)
If you are looking for a beautiful nautical print then this is a piece that would look great in an office, hallway, or powder bath.
5. Antique stoneware salt glazed mixing dough bowl (item #169653)
I love having unique mixing bowls in my kitchen and love to use them for storing fruit.
6. Decorative coral collection (item #169807)
This coral set would be perfect clustered together or broken apart to use in multiple spots. I love to use pieces like this on coffee tables, grouped in a decorative bowl or spread throughout a bookcase.
7. Decorative abstract metal & distressed wood sculpture (item #168280)
This piece reminds me of drift wood and would look amazing stacked on some books in a bookcase or on a console table.
8. Six 19th C. American Windsor dining chair (item #163337)
I love a good Windsor style chair and these have such beautiful details to them. I would love to use these for breakfast room chairs with a simple all white table. It would really make the wood stand out on them.
9. Vintage French style chest in white paint (item #105062)
This gorgeous chest would be great for an entryway or in a guest bedroom. Their French hardware would give a space a beautiful elevated look.
10. La Vannerie d'Antan historic basket collection wicker potato & onion basket (item #166029)
These baskets are such conversation pieces and would be beautiful layered on an entryway console table or even next to the fireplace.
