I am an unabashed fan of the upholstered headboard, but I might consider giving that up for this beauty - $650

It is hard to tell what this is from the photo, but here it is in use by the fabulous blogger From The Right Bank - This one is $60, offer less.


I have a friend whose husband proposed in a local art house movie theater that he had rented for the afternoon. Swoon, huh? Anyway, she and I thought that they should have some theater chairs as a entry bench. These would fit the bill. No price - make an offer

$20 - could be so cute with a modern desk.


This sofa was vetoed by the husband during my continuing sofa quest. I think it is lovely, and could be even greater in a simple linen or more subtle velvet - $600

The shape of the leg on these chairs is awesome. $260 for the set.

Cute little table - $125

Pretty 5'x8' rug - $550

Paint this or maybe even silver leaf this and put it in your entry, gorgeous! $20

$250 - in tweed fabric, no ottoman. How lovely would it be with the rug shown above?


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.
