Vintage Chinoiserie Plates You Have to See

Yes.  You must see these rare Royal Worcester chinoiserie dinner plates.


Available at 6 Wilson


These were a special addition to the Pillament pattern, which was produced in England between 1920 and 1939 (from the research I did).  And guess what?  I can't find anyone but me (at 6 Wilson) who has them ;-).   This mint condition set of 4 is gorgeous, and the green is just the most stunning shade.

I knowIknowIknow it's too early to show Christmas stuff, but I couldn't resist styling them a bit so you could imagine them at your holiday dinner party...








I figure everyone is like me and has their Thanksgiving table all done in their head, and we're on to planning the next tablescapes...Ha (oh please, I know).

Of course, they could also go on your wall, or in your hutch as a beautiful backdrop to your other pieces.  Mix them with anything!  And if you need a bit more green or purple in the room to balance your table, why not add these...


Find them here

Or maybe this one?

For more on these plates,  check them out on 6 Wilson.  (Before I decide to keep them...)

High Point Highlights and New Blues in the Shop

  Hi all!  I made a super quick trip to High Point for the furniture and accessories show.  I couldn't bare to miss it, even if I was only able to go for a day and a half.  I can never stay away!

This image is from my absolute favorite room at Wesley Hall...




The trends I saw included a continuation of fresh, clean colors, but with some earth tones mixed in, particularly in butterscotch (a fave of mine) and darker greens, going to olive.  Here are random shots of things that caught my eye...


Leather and lucite bench?  Yes please!



Painted wood tile flooring -- to die for.




I always stop to stare at botanicals, and a rabbit always gets me, too...







This tray is petrified wood.  How I would love this in my house...




Speaking of wood, this live edge coffee table had my thumbs up...



Good chairs always make my heart race.  Perhaps sad, but true! ;-)










This ghost chair knocked my socks off...






The mix of textures and styles in this setting really appealed...





I think one of the coolest things this market was these coffee and end tables, done in a custom Pantone combination (you can pick any three colors you want),  and sealed with an almost indestructible finish.  I would mix these in any traditional setting...




I could have stayed in High Point all week, but not doable this time around.  But a bit of time is better than none.  Personally, I think it's critical in this industry to see and feel what's new and next. 

And for new and next, I want to show you two items I'm loving in the shop.  A stunning blue and white, coral and seashell motif soap dish, and cobalt blue majolica in the cabbage pattern.  There is a limited quantity of each, so don't wait, my blue and white peeps!!



Shop it at 6 Wilson

Hope you are having a great start to the week!!  Thanks for stopping by,

The Love for Blue in Design and a Coupon

  I never cease to be amazed that my 6 Wilson shop stats consistently tell me that my customers love blue pillows.  Every shade of blue, every style, whether it is mixed with white or other colors.  I believe that in design, blue is the most decorated-with hue, and there's no wonder why.  It's just plain pretty.

Take a look...

In keeping with the blues, I added some new pillows to 6 Wilson.  There's some traditional, a bit of elegance, some French Country, and a dash of modern, too. 
















There's so much blue in the shop right now, and most all of it is done in high end, designer fabrics.  Many of them are only available through designers.  I am a firm believer in having things in your home, like pillows ;-),  that reflect your style, and not every neighbor on your street.

And if you'd like a chance to win a pillow cover of your choice, hop on over to The Enchanted Home and visit Tina (who's love of blue and white is hard to top).  She's hosting a 6 Wilson giveaway, and there's a 20% off COUPON you can use.  Just sharin' the love!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend, friends!!
