Chic Chateau Showhouse – Details and Inspiration #1

Surprise!  If you’ve been reading for a while, you know that I’ve been sharing tours of the two lovely Chic Chateau Showhouses every Thursday.

So what’s up with this one popping up on a Tuesday???

Well, it’s like this – my intention had been to end this series with one final post sharing many of the inspiring details in these lovely houses, but there are just too many to put into one post.

I want to get all of it in before Thanksgiving week (before when the Christmas fun begins)!  Sooo…I’ll be sharing a Details and Inspirations post today, tomorrow and Thursday.

When it comes to home decor, it’s true that it’s all in the details.  Combining all of the details together to create a space that is not only lovely, but one that draws you in.

Today I’m going to share details in the Living Areas, Kitchens and Dining Rooms.

Living Areas
House #1
I know that many of you are not fans of faux animal heads, but I am!  And I really like the white deer mixed with the green topiaries and mercury glass candlesticks.
Beautiful banding on the draperies in this room.
A planter filled with faux succulents and other faux elements was tucked into a little nook off of the living area.
Simple artwork and pretty pillows with a mix of patterns.
House #2
 This painted and distressed tray was great on the large coffee table that was in this room.

See that clock hanging above the bench?

I just know that some of you talented peeps could diy one too.  I think it’s a great way to display vintage keys.
House #1

How much did we all looove this built-in bench!  I couldn’t resist taking another peek.

A group of plants in glass containers in a sunny corner of the kitchen.

Not one, but two owl containers for the center of this large table is just right.  Love!

This is a good idea if you want to open up the cabinets above your fridge.  I think larger baskets would have looked better though.

Built-in shelving surrounded the kitchen table on both sides.

Are swags and jabots making a comeback in window treatments?  I’ve been seeing them around here and there lately.  This one is made all the more beautiful by use of the iron hardware.

Cute way to display pasta in glass containers.

It would be great to have fresh herbs right at your fingertips!

The dark wood of the cabinets looks amazing mixed with a white backsplash and light counters.

Dining Rooms

House #1

Mixing two different fabrics on the front and back of upholstered chairs sure makes an impact.

Pretty display of vintages plates above the industrial feeling sideboard.  Love the juxtaposition.

To beef up a sconce that is too small, combine it with a plate.
Notice the banding on the leading edge of the draperies?

House #2

Pretty tablescape combining natural elements.

The lamps on the sideboard had a cute burlap ruffle and some ribbon added to the shades.  And the knobs on the sideboard are blue crystal.

The two end chairs were slipcovered in linen.  How sweet is the little birds nest with eggs added to the ribbon tied around the chair?
