A Martha's Vineyard Shopping Paradise

 This was in the store's front entry way~
a gorgeous frenchy cane settee.
Yes, I'd like to take this home.
Even the linen print pillows were perfect....
But I was here to help mom, an islander, do a little shopping for her home.
 This is a great place on island to get furniture,
 and I am sure the likes of Jackie O may have even shopped here.
This store has been here forever it seems.
Lets see if I can find something for mom, 
she is looking for some new beds.
 A secretary done in fresh key lime.
 Island decor may be a little different than mainland (or mainstream), 
but I think you will agree
that all of these things one might see in blogland, 
as AFTER pics, redone by us amazing DIYers.
So get some inspiration from these high price tagged items...
 Distressed and pale grey~
 Industrial mixed with farmhouse chic~
 Gorgeous pink linen floral print on a weathered sand colored frame.
 Mod chinoiserie style chest painted in coastal blue.
 I saw quite a bit of french influenced pieces like this cool lettered glass bottle lamp.
 Blues and greens were everywhere you looked. 
Don't you love this green wicker set?
 A Rachel Ashwell style shabby chic chair perfect for the bedroom sitting area.
 Heavily distressed chests and tables in duck egg blue...and old white! 
I've seen this in blogland, and for less than $625 a pop.
These are straight out of Miss Mustard Seed's portfolio.
 A 60" round weathered grey painted table with rattan chairs in linen upholstery.
 Gauzy sheer linen dust ruffle and bedding on a heavenly upholstered head board.
 Shabby raw rosettes inside each tuft! 
 Sweetest dreams await.
 A more traditional vineyard furniture grouping 
in blues and whites with  lighthouses thrown in!
 A darling periwinkle blue and white modern toile pattern covers this angled sofa. 
 An outdoor section was filled with green and aqua fabrics
 with teak furnishings and market umbrellas.
I am a sucker for anything iron,
 and these huge tole candle sconces were my cup of tea.
Perfect as a centerpiece on outdoor dining table.
 What a fun bed! Mod Vintage Style.
I love the grey green color and the bedding.
A classic caned bed frame in swedish grey.
 Much to my shock I spotted a pair of
 reproduction chandies almost like the one I just bought! 
The price? $595 each. 
The finish is rusted iron and the carved swags and cap are flatter.
If you didn't get to see my chandy, here it is, 
and I paid 1/6 the price. That made me a happy girl!
A cartload of Dash and Albert striped runners.
 I had to take one home with me~
isn't that cart adorable?
These rugs say summer freshness.
 I grabbed the pink, aqua, green, 
orange, brown one in the middle there.
You will see it soon in my kitchen
 which is getting some decorating touches.
That was our trip to the Vineyard Decorators store~
Mom didn't find what she was looking for...but 
I realized if this high end retail location is any indication,
 us blogger/decorators are on the right track.
Painted, shabby and distressed furniture and a lot of french touches!
Doing it with style, for a lot less dough.
