More importantly, I love the hunt.

The challenge is taken to a whole new level when mixing these pieces with new furniture
and/or more modern interiors
We finished it off with vintage books. Another one of my Go To finds!

I have had people ask me to be on the lookout for specific things.
Bottles are another item that are easy to transport and store and are affordable.

It’s that time of year again: the sisters are off to Round Top to find all kinds of things, both for our retail store and for clients!
This time we are asking YOU to give us YOUR shopping list and let us search for you.
Let’s take a look at some of the awesome finds from past trips.
We always find really unique, cool, old doors. Many of which we have built into clients’ homes as fully functional doors.
We love when we stumble across any old architectural elements.
We use them in our designs all the time. Hanging on a wall, sitting on a console; we even take fragments and make them into a one-of-a-kind piece. Like these shutters, for instance:
Now look how awesome they are hung on a wall as a base for layering objects on top!
The above shutters were recently purchased from our store and graced the cover of the newest issue of At Home in Arkansas! How much fun to imagine all the places these old shutters have been before.
Maybe you are in need of a new piece of furniture for that special spot in your home?
We found this piece at Round Top and it ended up in a client’s Breakfast Room.
We find some great pieces for that small spot, like benches for extra seating.
Maybe you don’t need furniture, but you’re still in luck: we find some of the coolest accessories and wall hanging pieces!
We are packing our bags and making our list, but there is still time. Send us your shopping list and you never know what we might find! HAHA

Whether you gravitate to symmetry or not, there is something to the organized aspect of it all that does create a sense of comfort.
When designer Scott Paterek of Massimo in Little Rock showed me this dining room, I immediately fell in love. For one, it’s unexpected–it’s in a lake house that Pine Bluff residents Junie and Becky Simpson recently built in Hot Springs. Because they use it year-round, it’s not just your typical, seasonal getaway.
The contrasts are what caught my eye: a rough hewn floor, an elegant rug; a sleek marble table, rough seashells; formal symmetry, with a view of the rippling waters of the lake out the window.

A few other favorites with water-side style:
Here’s your chance to let your opinion be heard! Our November issue goes to press tomorrow, and we have a lovely dilemma to deal with–two covers that are so equally appealing, we’re having a difficult time selecting our favorite.
So which one is your favorite?
Georgiana Gunn’s stunning collection of blue and white china lends itself well to the runway, don’t you think? Roberto Cavalli’s porcelain-inspired design debuted in 2005 on model Daria Werbowy, and can now be found in Cavalli’s 40th Anniversary Book.

What room would I most like to spend time in today? Reggie Marshall’s guesthouse in Little Rock, tucked away in his European-style garden, tops my list. (Reggie is the co-owner of the Little Rock antique shop Marshall-Clements, and a day spent wandering the shop is a wonderful day too).
I’d take a dreamy nap in this comfy bed, soothed by the blue-gray walls and bed draperies.

Spend some time writing, on beautiful, thick papers, at this 17th century Italian desk.
And then enjoy some tea and cakes on the balcony, with views to the garden. A dreamy day for sure, and you can read more about this cozy space here and here. For other inspiring garden spaces, take a peek at our March issue.
In case you missed it:
I fell in love with this photo the minute I saw it. And as much as I loved the room and the elegant furnishings, what caught my eye was the dog.
On countless shoots, I’ve seen dogs and cats find just the right place to be to make it into a photo. (The trick is that pets go toward the light, just like photographers do!) This bulldog had it all figured out.
What a treat it’s been to watch Providence Ltd. Interior Design grow. We’ve enjoyed featuring Mona and Talena’s projects, and their blog continues to be a favorite source of inspiration for everyone in the At Home office. And now, their blog column with At Home takes a new spin in 2012, with a focus on antiques and vintage finds. Check it out below!
The Sisters have been very busy…
In October, we joined Laurie Miller (of Krumphet Buttons), Pat Pflugrad, Bonnie Blackmon, Cindy Staley and Keith James to form an antique market collective called Le Jardin Antiquities. The shop is located on Grant Street in the Heights in Little Rock. The combined product offering is fabulous!
In November, one of our projects was featured in At Home in Arkansas.
This month, we rented the space at Fabulous Finds that the owners of Park Hill Home had previously occupied, and will be carrying the Park Hill Collection along with our antiques and unique vintage finds. We now have five booths at this location. Our big Customer Appreciation Sale is going on now…
Our design business continues to grow and we are very excited about some wonderful new construction projects that are in the planning stage.
Blogging continues to be a priority (providenceltddesign.com).Â The inspiration and feedback we receive is the heartbeat behind our business…We love our blog friends…
Providence Ltd. is growing and tweaking in every area to offer exceptional design and customer service….
A recent inspiration board for a client…
We’re making some changes in our monthly contribution here as well. We will continue to bring you great entertaining Â ideas…but we’re going to mix it up a bit. With more of a focus on antiques, vintage and unique finds, we’ll hopefully inspire you throughout your home, garden and get-togethers as well.
Looking forward to sharing new things with you in February.
It’s your turn. Let’s talk!

The beauty of today’s post from the talented ladies at Providence Ltd. Interior Design (sisters Mona Thompson and Talena Ray) speaks for itself. If ever there were a time to enjoy antique silver, it’s now. Why? Scroll down and you’ll see… And, of course, enjoy!
Regardless of the season…vintage silver is very beautiful and versatile…
Vintage silver is hot, hot, hot right now. It’s been a favorite of ours forever… it’s timeless.
We really love that tarnished silver is now very chic. Â Silver lost it’s popularity among baby boomers because of the time needed to keep it polished.
No longer a problem…

It’s beautiful…it’s timeless…it’s versatile.
No longer considered stodgy…but fun!
It’s your turn. Â Let’s talk!
In theÂ November issue of At Home in Arkansas, we asked Arkansasâ design professionals to tell us their secrets to achieving great style in your home. Their answers ran the gamut, from floral accents to statement art. We thought weâd share a few of those style secrets on the blog this month. To read the full story, pick up theÂ November issueÂ on newsstands today!
“We have found that, in keeping with being green, individuals and designers love to find an existing lamp from their home, a flea market or an antique mall and have it repurposed with new wiring and usually a whole new finish to achieve a totally new look.” – Robin & Scott Morris, The Shade Above
Have you ever had an old lamp rewired? Antique lamps from flea markets or vintage stores might lack the juice to light a room like they once did, but proper rewiring can give them a second life. Add a modern paint color or refinish them for a truly unique look. Other “green” options include having an old bottle, vase or urn wired and fitted with a shade to create a one-of-a-kind lamp.
