A Kitchen Faucet Roundup

by Sarah on September 12, 2014, no comments

I recently embarked on a faucet finding mission for my Atlanta clients. I explored all of the usual sources but learned about some new ones and unlocked the mystery of the source of that tall faucet with the long spray attachment pictured in these beautiful kitchens.

The matte brass finish on the Rocky Mountain faucet (#5) looks really exceptional but my favorite find was the Waterstone pulldown, here it is in action,

Saturday at the Flea

by Sarah on September 2, 2014, no comments

Sometimes the flea market is overflowing with great things, sometimes its a bit scant– we all know this. Here are a few notable things from our trip to the flea market at the NC Fair Grounds in Raleigh.

I’ve been to Carol Patterson’s booth at the Raleigh flea twice and both times I’ve been tempted. Carol has an eclectic mix and I like that. Carol has four spaces at the Granddaddy’s Antiques Mall in Burlington, NC if you’re ever around. Granddaddy’s says they are the “Largest in the Carolinas”, two acres of treasure. These are Carol’s pieces at the flea,

Oh, this color blue would draw anyone in to the booth, there was actually a low dresser available to match this one,

The rug is from 1960s Vietnam. The colors were vivid and it looked perfect displayed over the blue dresser.

The industrial look still rules and there were some good stools there but no mates in sight,

The only interesting pair I saw at the flea,
