A Charming Cottage: Rue de Lillie Antiques

Late November is the perfect time of the year to travel and shop for Christmas decorations.  The coastal line of California is a favorite destination to visit and to get away from the early cold winter weather.  One of the  places to visit is Rue de Lillie Antiques, located in Summerland, along HW 101 south of Santa Barbara. If you are looking for a quaint town with specialty shops and a row of antique stores, then this is a place you do not want to miss if you are traveling along the California scenic highway.

Rue de Lillie is a bungalow treasure-box filled with European antiques and collectibles blended with new finds that will transform your abode to your very own creative masterpiece.  Behind the creative vignettes of this charming cottage is California interior designer and owner Francesca Wolff. Francesca travels to Europe  to fill the shop with treasures from the European antique markets bringing in the romantic vibes of the old Parisian charm.

Linen Boards

These linen boards  can be the perfect keeper of your little notes or loose picture souvenirs.  
Hang these on your wall or set these on your desk leaning
 against the wall.

Love this particular BON APPETITE  linen board that every mom should have in the kitchen. A place where a mom rules and where memories are built…feels all the attention and the only place where mom can spoil the children!

Vineyard Wedding

We are so thrilled to receive these gorgeous wedding photos from our client, Christy.  A couples wish to have the
 perfect wedding all came true on their special day. 

A romantic 'country elegance' wedding theme transforms the
 hills of Virginia...  

 Tablescapes of merlot & gold, with white flower bouquet centerpieces, burlap & lace candle jars, lighted galvanized lantern, created the vignette for a 
vineyard wedding.  

A large galvanized Park Hill lantern from our collection
 used as a gift card holder. 

Table lanterns found new homes after the wedding night.  The bride and groom gave them away as gifts of remembrance for the bridal entourage!

The theme is repeated at the receiving area.  The table is dressed with burlap and white flower bouquets accented with table lanterns. A mason jar is decorated in burlap and lace. Hearts were used for guests to sign their names and express wedding wishes.  These hearts were later transformed
 into a unique piece of art form.  

A perfect wedding? Yes, indeed!

Congratulations and wishing you both a lifetime happiness!
