Ellen Ward Scarborough

Ms. Scarborough's shop has the things I am always looking for to accessorize with.
She finds and sells, that ' something ' that will give a room it's character.
Ellen Ward Scarborough has fun , whimsy , and classic style in her work.
I find her to be fabulous.
And any room that feels like it could be a movie set to me is a success. To me that means that the room is projecting a feeling, and atmosphere, and often an escape from the world outside.

The ceiling in this room is just too fabulous.
What a clever woman she is.
Do you like it ???
And in this image I feel as though I am back in the 1930's or 40's. I can see Lucy & Ethel hanging out in this kitchen. Scheming.

  1. Some of her rooms I like, some are a bit over the top for me. I like her ideas, though - especially the "awning ceiling" Interesting!

  2. Love it - especially the last shot.....enjoy the weekend, xv.

  3. I do like all of them....but I used to paint murals! LOL!

  4. Wow, how fabulous is all of this -so fun with so many great ideas!! I think it's great when designers can experiment and create such fun, non-serious places.

  5. oh yes, it does kind of look like a movie set (the kitchens). so pretty, and very whimsical!

  6. "And any room that feels like it could be a movie set to me is a success." - so much agree!

  7. Love the marble tub (wow!) and the kitchen.



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
