Local Color: Le Jardin

Le Jardin....what better place to find local color? A garden is filled with all of the colors of the rainbow, and this Sacramento shop is no different. I am very lucky to live so close to this jewel of a shop. I drive by almost daily and peer into the windows to see what new treasures the ladies who own this shop have found.

Mother and daughter team Linda Fairley and Janice Fairley Winn have a way with putting things together: vintage French style furniture and leather bound books....topiaries and leopard print pillows.....

all mixed in with industrial tables and architectural remnants. I love it all! And isn't the floor brilliant? They painted the yellow and white checkerboard right on top of the concrete. It looks just like handmade glazed pavers.

The ladies always seem to have beautiful alabaster lamps on hand.

I almost took home these gilt banded glasses the other day.

This white wire cage would make the perfect table base!

The green window frames....perhaps a headboard for a twin bed in a little girl's room? And that gilt mirror!

Dashes of mercury glass, some vintage, some new add a bit of sparkle. And there are pieces of coral, and antlers and vintage paintings....

These chairs were particularly nice covered in an icy blue velvet.

I spotted the interesting wicker table up above, and thought of countless possibilities....and then there was the Bergere...

What a beautifully scaled mirror this was! And hiding below it , the green headboard....so pretty!
