How to get House Beautiful style interiors at Consignment Canada…
June 11, 2015
We subscribe to various interior design magazines to keep up with trends in furniture, accessories, paint colours and everything else that goes into current interior design. One of our favourite magazines is House Beautiful US edition. It?s always beautifully curated and the reason we like it so much is because it?s a bit like us, it covers everything from antiques, vintage, mid-century through to very modern and beyond. I am always amazed when I turn the pages and see pieces in the magazine’s photo spreads that we have here in the store. A lot of the times they have been reupholstered, refinished or painted and they look fabulous. It?s well made furniture reimagined for today?s purposes which has already lasted for some years, and when refurbished will last for as many years again. Take a look at some of the images (all courtesy of House Beautiful) with this article to see how amazing the refurbished vintage pieces look and then take a look at the items in our store that can complete this look for a fraction of the cost.
In these first two photos (Bunny & John William’s home in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic you will see a beautiful collection of timeless blue & white china, a rectory table and armless Bergere chairs. ?These are all items on constant rotation at CC and which you can pick for bargain prices but that will complement your interior beautifully with their timeless appeal, classic styling and cheerful nature as well as practical (the rectory table can be used as a desk, table, or storage for stacked coffee table books and your knick knack collection)
In these photos below you will see an antique Welsh Dresser in the background hosting tone on tone porcelain. What’s great about this piece is again it is timeless and practical and juxtaposes against the round Provencal Farmhouse table and the mid-century modern painted classic wishbone chairs that have become all of the rage again. ?The look is simple and clean and the china picks up the green from the chairs. ?You will see in this room a combination of antique, modern and country (the antler chandelier) and it all works as they’ve kept it simple and clean. ?Right now we have a beautiful round white, pedestal based farmhouse table from Country Furniture in store that is a fraction of what it was retail. ?We also have lots of antlers and trophies in store and you can always pick up a Welsh dresser or sideboard for a fantastic deal too. ?If you need help making these HB looks come to life in your home, ask to speak to Carly, Tina or Angela who can help you with your design choices.
In these photos we have a regular pine, vintage style 4-poster bed that we receive almost monthly. ?It has been freshened up in a bright green colour which changes its look dramatically. ?Next to that is a dresser exactly like the little white one with hand-painted flowers we currently have in store.
In these final photos you will see a beautiful matte black modern kitchen with a lovely Canadiana pine harvest table. ?We have several pine harvest tables in stock right now priced from $495 – $895 as you can see from our photo. ?We love how the table just pops in the room of this black kitchen.
