A Perfect Birthday with Friends

My friends treated me to a day of lunch and shopping in Ventura as a birthday celebration.  We had a fantastic time together.  I found a few new shops, and made some fun purchases.  Whether shopping alone, or with friends, I bring my camera.  I snap shots of vignettes and design that inspires me.  Take a look at what inspired me!

Display Table at B on Main

Check out this display table at a fantastic store, B on Main.  This vignette display represents some of the design inspiration I gather when shopping in decor stores.  Look closely at the way this table is arranged.  The mercury glass is grouped together to make a visual impact.  Other shiny objects are placed in, to repeat the reflective theme. In your home, group your collectibles together, on an entry table or console table to give them more emphasis.

I discovered a new home decor store, Cheryl Collins Signature Style (420 E Main Street). Cheryl has a stunning collection of reasonably priced accessories, expertly displayed.  I just had to buy this stone urn. It may end up in my house if I don’t place it in a client’s home this spring.

This stone lidded urn will beautifully accessorize your home inside or in the garden.

These glass bottles would accessorize an indoor or outdoor table very nicely…

One more stop to look at pottery… this was on sale and I didn’t get it… now I regret it.  I know I could use this for a client, or me!  I guess I have to go back!
