Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Used to create an aged appearance on furniture or cabinetry, chalk paint is easily manipulated by the artist and allows for the application of several layers. It comes in a variety of colors along with waxes to seal your finished project. It is now available by the quart for $34.95, along with the waxes and Annie Sloan's books, at Luxury for Less in Ponte Vedra.

Mike Perry

Artist Mike Perry creates magic in many mediums. This fabulous architectural piece looks amazing over a door, on a bookshelf or almost anywhere.

This is a landscape painting with wonderful blues and greens.

Black, grey and some lavender make for a wonderful look.

Going Coastal

This inviting "Coastal Room" has many elements, a fabulous custom 1930's down filled sofa, Saladino chairs (pictured below) covered with a yummy Mohair Velvet in a beautiful smokey gray lavender and an oversized Baker coffee table with an Asian flair. Also included are Simon Pierce Hurricanes and antique glass bottles and books. Across from the sofa sits antique French chairs freshly recovered in cream and aqua silk and Restoration Hardware's classic Directoire end tables. Completing the room is a custom shell mirror by local artist Kiersten Ferran and Seaweed Prints by The Karen Robertson Collection.
