One Image Drew Me In

This one!!!
I loved the settee....
But on further examination...
I found this home interesting because it looked as if
Bonnie & Clyde might be hiding out in it.
*A movie set.

Movie set or no?

I want your HONEST opinion....

these rooms were featured in Country Living.

What is your take on this place?
Likie or No Likie???

On weekends they could have 'dust mite' races.

  1. It looks very Nanna's place in the country! We have few homes round here that have that look and feeling. Comfortable, lived in and just slightly old fashioned! I do like it. Renee thank you for visiting if you want to leave me an address I can give you more info on what I am doing and why. It has helped a lot!

  2. Likie...and it makes me think of a bit old country estate...where you might expect to find rooms and furniture like that. I would be happy to relax in that room with a view out to a big old tree and beautiful garden.

    j :)

    PS...still trying to track down that chandelier I mentioned...when I do I will let you know. I think you will love it too!

  3. I like it. it reminds me of my Grandmothers house.

  4. Can envision the dust mites race....I stayed one time at my dad's old nanny's house and woke up covered with flee bites...they had a wonderful supper on my account.....a few too many ruffles for my taste but to each their own...

  5. i started scratching and sneezing.


  6. I like some of the elements...the furniture in the dining area and that black bed...the walls and backgrounds and all those "things"...not so much!

  7. Not a fan... a bit too victorian... ~Terri

  8. I am bit schizoid on this. I love layering textiles. My first response to any decorating problem is fabric first. I also like stainless/industrial. What to do? What to do?

  9. Love it.....the only thing missing is Faye Dunaway standing at the window ,with a highball, in her slip...K

  10. Yes to that first image. The rest isn't without charm in a shabby chic sort of way. Then we look again and it's not so shabby - and not so chic! Good for a movie set when you're playing someone else!

  11. le style et la matière,

    right on my friend!!!
    it actually creeps me out!


  12. These designs I believe are coming out of Fredericksberg Texas. I can't recall her name but she's had a large influence on that area with her retail design stores.

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
