We moved the custom cabinet that i had built into the shop several years ago from the old shop into the new Whistling Elk shop…this piece is 8′ high and 17′ long…
This was another important part of my store opening plan – i wanted this piece to move with me because i use it every day to sell custom cabinetry and furniture.
It’s a major sales tool for my interior design business.
It is a great showcase for our picture frames and all my design books! Plus since it has 17′ of cabinets under the bookcase it provides much needed storage space.
My cabinetmaker took the built in apart, he and his helper carried the components over to the new shop (20 ft) and then they reassembled it! The whole process took him 4 hours! So not only can he build beautiful pieces – but he can move them and they still look Beautiful – that’s pretty amazing if you ask me!
I think that sometimes adversity sharpens our creativity. Surprisingly this long, cold winter has actually been an inspiration for me. Maybe my present surroundings had something to do with it too….here’s a few rooms I love and that may have inspired me to take the steps I have planned…
This is a our “tea party” room in my shop – The Whistling Elk. I love the soft colors, the flowers and the pretty little tufted settee. Here’ s a few more of my favorites.
This fall I will be opening a new little shop…The long, cold winter was a kind of gift that provided me with the time to plan all the details for this vintage style furnishings shop.
It’s all on paper…so now the fun begins…selecting the actual colors, fabrics and trims, furniture and little trinkets to make it a reality. Yesterday I spent the day in New York selecting fabrics and trims! It’s all very exciting and makes the winter just a memory…
