Sally and I spent late Friday afternoon at the Boston Design Center zeroing in on final selections for our vignette. We begin installation the week of May 7. We saw two very different console tables at Charles Spada’s show room and I’m struggling as to which one to use. The decision is made more complicated because mid way thru the show, Sally and I are presenting a home styling seminar. During the seminar, we will transform our Belgian style vignette to a fresh modern take on a living room by changing out the rug, artwork and accessories. This console is quite neutral, making it an easy backdrop to the accessories and artwork when we do the seminar. What it doesn’t make is that big bold statement, anchoring the vignette for the opening Gala event. Will accessories be enough???
Our vignette will be the first space visitors will see upon entering the show gallery and this console, made from architectural salvage from the 18th and 19th century, has the wow I’m looking for.
I love how it relates to the brackets that Payne Bouchier is making for us. (Great residential builder!) And it will look fabulous in any photograph! However, I’m concerned it will make doing the modern feel very difficult because it is such a bold piece. The transformation has to be believable in the eyes of those attending…
