Every House has a story...a soul.  My job as a designer is to tell that story.

    French Garden House

    I am sure that this picture is familiar to a lot people who read blogs.

    These beautiful Antique Chateau Mirrored Doors come from Lidy's Shop at French Garden House.  You can link to her shop here.  Lidy also writes a wonderful blog! If you haven't visited her before you are really missing out.  She has a wonderful flair all her own.  You will be delighted by the wonderful treasures she has waiting for you in her on line shop.  I am always anxious to see what she has to share with us.  

    Back to my story.  When I saw these doors they melted my heart.  Living in a contemporary beach house I knew I had no place for them but they were just right for one of my clients.  

    We had been searching for something wonderful to go on a large focal point wall.  I felt these would be just perfect!!!!  I e-mailed pictures to my client and she agreed.  Just one problem, they were 6 inches too tall for the ceiling heights we had.  Lidy was kind enough to remeasure for us and give us the height of the threshold piece. You guessed it.  There was 6 inches we could cut off from the bottom.  My client flew in and I picked her  up at LAX and we met Lidy at the warehouse to see the doors in person.  More Beautiful than the pictures!!!!  We grabbed them up and the rest is history.  Here is what they look like in my client's home.

     The doors have been hung on the wall since I took these photos, so they no longer lean.

    Don't they look wonderful!!!!!???!!!!   Thank you Lidy for all of your help in getting these doors for my client.  The are exactly what we wanted.

    It would be fun to see what others have done with treasures they have found on on-line stores.  I would love it if you would share your stories with me.
