Sorry I have been absent this week.  Between the post Spring Break funk and a some new design projects, I am having a bit of a problem with time management.

First, this is where I am working from this afternoon –

Our backyard isn't summer-fied yet, so it is a bit beige. Still a lovely spot get a bit of sun and fresh air. Love my lounging "Design Assistant" in the background.

Here are some great finds from Craigslist this week.

Super Cool midcentury chair and ottoman - $50

Super cool midcentury chair and ottoman $50

Cutie Chair - $35

Cool kidney shaped coffee table - $200

Pair of twin headboards - $135

China Hutch - $75

Mirrored end tables - $80 for the pair

Loving this dining room table and chairs, maybe not together though - $225

Sweet Sofa - $400. Unfortunately you are going to have to drive to keystone to get it.

Saw this on a blog this week (sorry, I didn't get where). Someone with some ingenuity turned this...

Someone should do the same with one of these:



Of to see “Date Night” with my husband.  Have a great weekend and happy bargain shopping!


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.

    I was sorely tempted to call on that patio set last week, but, like you, I couldn’t figure out what was going on with the pieces.
