Rene @cottage and vine has launched a new monthly party this week
which will feature our homes "Room By Room".
Do please come on in.
The first party is taking a look at entrys/foyers, or what we Brits would call "the hall".
Because the hall here at the Presbytère is a T shape with the staircase going up on the left and doors leading off left to the dining room, right to the library and at the back into the cloakroom, there isn't room for too much furniture.
The ornately carved chest of drawers and the mirror above are permanent residents. I change the objects on top regularly to suit the seasons.
I have a large pewter collection which is usually only displayed during the autumn and winter months but some pieces I love more than others and keep them out year round, such as the bowl, jug and plate.
The clock and the chair are mainstays of the entry way decor too, the plant in it's blue and white delft jardiniere tends to wander from room to room, again depending on the season.
The antique oak captains chair was a gift from friends many years ago, the quilted cushions are vintage and came from an antique fair in Maine.
