“In with the Old, Classic Décor from A – Z” by Jennifer Boles of The Peak of Chic




In With The Old 
Classic Decor from A to Z
By Jennifer Boles
Renowned Blogger; The Peak of Chic!
A favorite blog of many in  decor and the arts.



My Friend Jennifer of The Peak of Chic
Jennifer shows us in this wonderful handbook how to make a home layered with details many of us forget to use in this modern decor world.
She has thought of everything to give your home the bespoke touch.



The Orangerie: A spot for flowers and plants, a sunroom, bringing nature into our lives is another piece of perfection

Scented Candles Use them Everywhere for a Signature touch of Fragrance. Nest is a Favorite of Mine.




Unique Side Chairs of all Periods Make a Statement.Use a wonderful trim and even embroidered Monogram for a custom touch. 

Painted or natural wood, you cannot go wrong with one or more  in every room.


Striped walls, Murals, Chinoiserie, Whimsical wall coverings. There is a place for any or all. A Powder Rom is the perfect place for a dramatic design. Try it and you will be surprised.





The Banquet: so many uses in Living Room, Study, Kitchen Nook, etc!



Book Plates
Customize your Library, these small details are what makes you and your home stand out amongst the rest.


A Ticking Stripe adds interest yet keeps a Canopy Draping from becoming too overdone. The curve to the headboard adds interest. If you love "More is More" use embroidered crewel, tassels, a luxurious trim. When it comes to fabrics  and passamenterie the choices are endless. Make it yours and make it out of the ordinary!


I could go on; however my suggestion is  to add this book to your collection. When deciding on decor for any room; page through and add an item or more ands see what a difference these suggestions will make!

Bonjour chère amie,

Nul doute que cet ouvrage doit être un véritable bijou et votre billet en est l'écrin... Vous avez fait certainement de bons choix de photos pour nous le dévoiler en partie...

Happy weekend, dear Karena! What a gorgeous book, thank you so much for featuring Jennifer and her blog...I will pop over to explore more....I can see that I will probably fall in love with her blog.
And yes, the Gypsy one has always been my main blog... :) You are so kind to visit..thank you!
Bless you for helping to keep the Arts ALIVE! I love that you are featuring the Nutcracker on your sidebar. On mine, I have the MN Orchestra story and struggle....they have been locked out by a misguided and uneducated management team...for over a year! The longest lockout in the history of U.S. orchestras. Such a vital cultural gem in our state....

Have a great weekend, dear Karena...
