My passion, after my family of course, is Treasure Hunting. The simple beauty of things from by-gone eras have always spoken to me. Whether these treasures are found at a flea market, fine antique store, estate sale, thrift shop, or in the family attic, surprises abound.
As an interior designer, I believe it is vital to balance your decor by including found and family treasures. Surrounding yourself with things you love should always be the goal, from there you will find your true style.
As I shop, I may have a client in mind or I may want to resell at our french flea market or in my shop. I am lucky to have several outlets for my treasures including my own home! I plan to share my searching, hunting, travels, and treasures with you and encourage you to enjoy adding your treasures to your home.

Portobello Street Refrigerators

It doesn't happen very often, but there are times when you see something that just speaks to you. It now occupies a little piece of both your heart and mind. This is exactly what happened the first time I saw the vintage style refrigerators made by Spanish company Portobello Street.
This unit combines the refrigerator with oven and drawer storage all in one piece... perfect.
They have created beautiful pieces of kitchen furniture inspired by the iceboxes our grandparents had when they were growing up (without the ice!).
From apartment size to a large family size, Portobello makes a frig for everyone. 
When you next consider the kitchen of your dreams, think about adding color. The days of cold stainless steel have been replaced with color. Portobello Street offers us a charming, bright, efficient, reinvented piece of the past.
The finishes are spectacular and include a rich stained wood facade. Great item but hard to find in the U.S. so I will just have to wait.
Happy Hunting!
