The 'thrill of the hunt' is an indivisible component of moving often that has that perfect balance of love and hate. It extends not only to shopping but to everything else : doctors, hairdresser, gym, grocery store, favorite driving routes. As it might take ten tries until you find your favorite one the 'thrill' fades fast and the struggle is real.
But there was one day this past week where I was exploring around and I stumbled upon the most beautiful place. Oh my! What a thrill! I instantly forgot about my 'meeh' color and haircut.
Right in downtown McLean, this antique asian decor store, has been around for more than 20 years but it's new to me! The owner is a welcoming gentleman, with a wealth of knowledge and he truly fills his pieces with spirit.
Every item in the store is one of a kind, antique or vintage with few re-designed pieces. It's a decor wonderland! I want everything.
He allowed me to take some pictures of his shop. Enjoy!
Black calligraphy desk, paint brushes and decor.
The owner added a mirror to the wood wheel.. how clever. And the white pottery..
These ginger jars are on my to buy list.. Absolutely LOVE them!
Jade dreams...The mirror is from Paris.
Imagine those panels framing an entrance..
This piece has so much color and texture it's like art but better.
