Modern Estate Sale in Period Colonial Home

I went to a wonderful Estate sale this past Saturday. This home belongs to an avid artist, floral designer, and antique and art collector. Her home is packed full of amazing goodies.

 This is the second or so run of an Estate sale she's been having, as she is moving soon.

Her home was built in the early 1700's and is an excellent example of Colonial Architecture.

She has a huge collection of religious items, in fact, I bought a few things at her last sale.

She will have a private showing for friends here soon. I can't wait, as I will be there!

On top of the great items, her home is beautiful. I love the wall treatments!

This vibrant raspberry color really makes everything pop!

Just look at that built-in. It's about 14 feet tall!

Great Harlequin pattern highlights the wall with the fire place in the dining room.

Fantastic furniture was in every room.

Great prints, lithographs, paintings, and sculptures were everywhere.

Check out the two toned Empire table!

I'd love to add that cabinet to my new kitchen!

I want the urn table.

This beautiful chandelier is by no means an antique, it is probably from the 1940s- 1960s. It goes to show than you can mix modern and classic, even in an Historic home.


Beautiful paper roses. Yes--those are PAPER!

This super chic sideboard would look great in nearly any decorating style!


These last few photos showcase some of her faux florals! Plus, I had to include one more shot of the paper roses! I hope you've enjoyed this tour! What's your favorite Estate Sale or Yard Sale find? I'd love to hear from you! Oh--I PROMISE I will finish the tutorial on my Cottage Chic vent hood ASAP! I'm getting the house and garden ready to welcome Summer, and my guests at a cook-out this week-end!
