A little overdue craiglist roundup


That table is waiting for a Miss Mustardseed makeover like this

$45 - I am seriously dying for this set. Unfortunately, I can't convince my husband we need MORE outdoor furniture.

But, the chairs remind me of this photo from West Elm this season

Ugh, I love the curviness of this dresser. $300

This dresser might not need a makeover.  If it does need a little paint, I would do something like this from Tobi Fairley

$200 for the pair

Use like this for some mod-feminine beauty

$75 for the pair.

Put a shiny black lampshade on them for something like this

okay, I know this really doesn't look like the CL lamps at all. I looked I promise, this is the best I found.

$175 - The ottoman doesn't match, but could work until you found the appropriate ottoman.

$75, can't tell from the photo if these are fabulous or gross. I suspect that in the right room (sans mauve carpet), they would be fabulous.

$100, yet another cool chair

Have a good week!  I will be back with some preliminary design boards for a client that doesn’t even have the house yet.

It is always great to get your designer involved when you are purchasing a home.  He or she can tell you what is possible in terms of remodeling, changing the floorplan, perhaps seeing past some dated or ugly features.


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.
