Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and this beauty I bought many years ago. It is absolutely one of my favorite pieces! Chippy =goodness. Well, maybe not always, but mostly always. This bureau has had many lives before I found it, and it continues to reinvent itself as I move it from room to room.  Versatile, functional and best of all, I got it for a song.  This is the making of a lifer among the Locke pieces. The mirror falls into the same category:  versatile, functional and cheap. Hope I age as well as these pieces are. Fun vases too!  LOVE to play with scale.

Buy what you love. You will always find a place for special pieces, even if your style tastes change.  I’m ALWAYS moving, rehabbing, repurposing, and editing our home. Great design consistently involves pieces that are personal.  For those of you out there that say they do not have a creative bone in their body…well I refuse to believe it.  You may not have the confidence to design an entire house by yourself, BUT you know what you like and what you don’t like!  We are all drawn to particular pieces, styles, color, etc. Hmm ok, this convo deserves more attention…something  we need to talk about on another post…I’ll be back.
