These African glass beads, just casually placed as table toppers, exude a tranquil ambiance. To give them movement , I love draping them on top of books. Make sure your book covers complement the beads for a thoughtful presentation. The Details 💕

My last With Gratitude Employee Spot Light is for Diana Bridger. If I recall correctly I pretty much begged Diana to leave her job at the Golden Goose Christmas Shop down the street to come work at VanEch Studio. That was about 7 years ago and I hit the jack pot that day. Diana is without a doubt the reason the brick & mortar hums along. Task and detail oriented, takes pride in her work with initiative, presents herself professionally and with class. You can find Diana knee deep in boxes with merchandise or behind the sales counter organizing the chaos Tuesdays thru Fridays and on many weekends as well.

Thank you Diana ♥️

My next up Employee Spot Light is Yvonne Lesnett. Yvonne has been a team member at VanEch Studio for over 3 years. She works Tuesdays and any day she is asked to fill in or cover. She is reliable and trustworthy, traits that rank high on my list. It would be safe to say her favorite part about working here is the designer jewelry. I recall my husband once made a comment that we had too much jewelry, she set him straight ;).

Thank you Yvonne ♥️

Today I want to focus on each of the women who help make VanEch Studio’s brick and mortar a success and express my gratitude for them.

This post spot lights Hope Gardepe. Hope works a full time job as a Project Manager at Capital Petroleum Group. She began working at VanEch Studio in Occoquan 9 years ago on her days off and weekends. She is a hands-on take charge worker who knows how to use a paint brush and all the artisan products we sell. You will likely see Hope in the store on Sundays, and do ask her for artisan product advice, she loves to share her knowledge and passion.

Thank you Hope ♥️

Project refresh - new rug and chair slipcovers. Selecting a rug size for under a dining table can be tricky. A good rule of thumb: The dining chairs should sit completely on the rug, with enough room to pull the chairs out and still remain on the rug. Additionally low pile rugs make chair movement easier. Always use a good pad that will grip the rug.

A coffee table big enough to serve two sofas with star presence without stealing the show. This forged iron and glass table from Noir is spot on. We did change out the black iron finish for a mellower rust patina using an iron paint and rust activator product from Modern Masters Paints. Sofas custom made from @hallmanfurniture and drapery fabricated and installed by our team of contractors.

The architects added a sunroom on the back of the garage to my client’s mid century Maryland home total house renovation which we have been working on for well over a year. The framing is complete and the finishing selections are finally taking shape. This will be one of my client’s favorite spots in the home as it has beautiful garden views and can be enjoyed year round.

These lovelies heading to the store. Im surprisingly loving the braided velvet wreath, handmade. It reminds me of a young girl’s beautiful hair braid from the 16th century. The wood plaques are hand painted reproductions of vintage French cheese labels. So charming! We have several designs.

This is the present situation behind my store. At 11 am the water was below the deck. We have never experienced flooding as we are high up but our neighbors in the lower lying historic district often do. We will be closing the rest of the afternoon. Be safe everyone.

There is still a bit of this in me but with age and life is too short attitude, I have relaxed the penchant for perfection when it comes to entertaining. Most people are so happy to be your guest and enjoy the company of friends and family they could care less if there is a pet stain on the foyer rug! In fact when Im a guest at someones home and there are imperfections I feel that much more welcomed and relaxed. How about you, are there areas in your life this holds true?

Glass door kitchen cabinets, aesthetic vs function. I think IF you have adequate cabinets for storage of the mis matched dish ware and utilitarian items, then glass doors can nicely break up the mundane door panel look. But nothing says a bad idea more than when you see coffee mugs jammed in with popcorn boxes. My client had no cabinet space in her dining room for her nicer china so she asked for glass in the new kitchen design. Which design do you think works best?

From sunrise to sunset 🌅, the day at the The Old Lucketts Store Spring Market Goes Fall was awesome! Customers? You rocked and our feet hurt! We actually have to restock tomorrow. Friends? So happy to see you all and so sad I didn’t get pics... it was non-stop! But my heart is full that you came to say hi ... and buy. Colleagues in the biz who are so supportive and we feel like besties ? Again, so many stopped by but I managed to grab a pic of VanEch Studio and Cherry Lane Antiques ! Thank you ladies. And finally, before the sun sets, Mr Rust and Refind and I always try to put our feet up, grab a beer, talk about the day, and laugh and be silly and share beers with Lucketts store peeps! These markets are money makers for us... yes!, but they are how we meet so many other vendors and share in mutual support ... and beer and bubbles! Thank you everyone!. . Pics of the #rustandrefindartisanmarket tomorrow... cuz again... too busy and too tired!! The gates open from 10:00 -5:00 at the Clarke County Fairgrounds! Come see us and the other coolness in Berryville!. . . Forever & Always Vintage KatieDid Designs Vintage Revival Design Co.

New wall, new vignette! So excited about this wall! Inspired by Niki VanEch Studio , used #pureandoriginalpaint to create this stone look wall in the color of Soft Taupe (which is a greige imho). Swipe ⬅️ to see more of the wall). We are ready for our #rustandrefindartisanmarket celebration this weekend! Check out the new inventory....antique pine dresser, architectural pieces, and more. Come see us! @ Rust and Refind
Warning: You cannot go to Niki’s shop VanEch Studio and buy just O̶n̶e̶ ̶t̶w̶o̶ three things! Niki had hosted a recent Facebook Live sale and I wanted one of her beach bags, which led to buying coasters (see my stories) cuz one can never have too many coasters (it’s like pillows!), and then Mr. Rust and Refind had to have a soap, and a few other goodies. I love her, and her shop! Oh, and the other reason? See her walls behind us in the photo? She had posted about venetian plastering them earlier with Pure and Original paint (she used to be a retailer but sadly, no longer sells the paint). Having done four rooms myself at home in Venetian Plaster, I wanted to paint one of our shop walls like hers...she inspired me! The gray is perfect and I was lucky enough to grab a gallon she had! Another day, another project...because we can’t have too many of those either! Hah. Thanks Niki.
