the armoire - is it still a thing?

I remember years ago how the armoire was the piece of furniture to have. Not just my memories of the 80s with the knotty pine rendition of the day, but from the early part of the 20th century… and from even well well before then too! Has it gone away? Do people now prefer hidden built-ins, walk-in closets with all the bells and whistles, and simple dressers over these once very sought after pieces?

Check out these photos of some really exquisite armoires and tell me, would you want one in your home again perhaps?

finding interesting accessories for your home

Accessories - these are the things that define your space by giving it your personal character and allowing you to really display the things you love. For some minimalists, it may consist of one treasured or sentimental piece. For others, it's finding the best way to display many of their favourite things. Whatever your style is, accessories can make or break a whole room.

Here are some really lovely examples of how others have put their personal touch to their spaces with accessories.
