I’m Back…Maybe

I took a week off from most everything, just coped.  A lot of professional introspection, grew a spine in several situations and dealt with a ton of personal crap.  I think I am ready to talk about pretty spaces again.  I have a few posts in the works, but can’t go a week with out a Denver Craigslist post, because I am sorta addicted.

$120 for this table, the thought of dusting it gives me hives though.

$750 for these light fixtures - very Cote de Texas.

$60 for this table, would look great in a study or library with a settee and a couple chairs.

Another great chandelier - $50

$110, I love the top of this. I is equipped for a big old box TV, but how awesome would it be modified to be a bar?

$500 for what is likely a knockoff Corbousier lounge, but love it still.

$20 for the pair.

I am obsessing over these, $125 for all four. Keep your eye out for a room inspired by these later this week.

Love these, too. No price listed.

Simple, pretty dining table - $35

Super cool desk and credenza set - $1495

How cool would this be reupholstered in a hotel lobby? Still waiting for the investors in my boutique hotel filled with antique and vintage furniture - $300

Love this MCM coffee table - $150

$135 - This bench would be great in an entryway or as a coffee table.

Cute french chair that is a great makeover candidate - $45

$20 - doesn't have a pedigree, but cool anyway.

I have been sort of wanting a rocking chair lately (must be my advancing age). This one is kinda great - $100

Hard to tell how much work these chairs need. $20

Ugh, these could be so great in a new fabric. They look like the probably swivel - $250 for the pair.

$230 for this great sofa

Pretty pedestal table with a rosewood top- $125

Dying for this great big gorgeous rug - $800

If you don’t live in Denver (which is pretty likely), check in with MFAMB.  She has been doing amazing Craigslist posts for places all over the country.

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.
