Valentine’s Shoot Featured on Trendy Bride

14 February

Am always humbled when our work is published… On this Valentine’s Day, Trendy Bride is showing us some love by featuring our Watercolor Romance Styled Shoot. Beautifully captured by JofFoto, the images evoke vibrant, passion-filled romance where pinks and reds overcome every shade of gray!

Inspired by Atticus Poetry

Happily introduced to the Bella Villa inventory collection on occasion of this shoot is the vintage menu stand above. Our artistic groom used it as a unique easel for painting his muse.

If you’ve never been to Rust Manor House and Nature Sanctuary in Leesburg, VA it is absolutely worth a visit as the Audubon Naturalist Society is also located there and I’m pretty sure they love squirrels. Also, along with Aldie Mill Historic Park, another unique Loudoun County venue located just across the road from the Bella Villa warehouse, Rust Manor is open to the public!  I digress. Back to the shoot… We also introduced these awesome new red velvet bergere chairs, which have yet to be named. Feel free to post suggestions on my Facebook page.  Gorgeous to add a punch of color to any lounge!

They’re so comfy and feature the same body style as the pair of Siena & Chiara pink velvet tufted chairs, but the new ones are red and have a smooth back (no tufting).

We also featured two very feminine “occasional” tables… the petite mint green serpentine console. So gorgeous and was perfect for the card and gift table. And of course, you can see the inspirational quote beautifully scribed in watercolor.

So perfect with all its chippiness, fancy hardware and curvy body. Like a woman!  Those droopy tulips in the drawer make my heart skip!

We displayed Sweet Pink Bakery’s gorgeous cake (complete with Cupid’s arrow!) atop our white frenchy table and displayed the gorgeous blooms from Danielly’s Boutique’s in the caged bottom area.

And this might be one of my favorite things to rent… tableside bubbly for the bride & groom… I love love love using this fancy urn in lieu of a traditional ice bucket. Anyone can have an ice bucket. It takes a genius (that’s what I like to tell myself) to see creative, yet practical, uses for ordinary objects. Although, this urn is hardly ordinary!

the Bella Villa family: Sharon

01 May

You may know that Bella Villa is home to 7 dealers besides me, all of whom have their own sources, skills, paint methods, and overall looks.  It’s not like an antiques mall with 10 by 10 booths cluttered and filled with rinky dink collectibles.

IMG_0001At Bella Villa, each space has its own classy look, and most folks don’t realize where one dealer starts and another begins because we all blend so well together.  

IMG_0008For those who visit often, you know that it’s like having 8 shops in one because  we all have our own sporadic schedules for refilling and refoofing our spaces, which means you can inevitably find new merchandise all the time! 


First in this series of posts about our Bella Villa family is Sharon Phillips. She always has at least one thing beach-related in her space.

IMG_0005Sporting  a seaside weathered look with a nod toward French,  Italian, or Industrial, her style is understated and always hip.

IMG_0012She never uses bright colors… always muted, always peaceful, always soothing, even when she uses black.


If you’re shopping for your beach house or if you wish your regular house reminded you of the beach, Sharon has you covered!


Her silver-haired RayBan wearing hubby, Jerry, will happily chat you up at the Eastern Market in DC where he sells her wares every sunny Sunday.  And you can friend Sharon on Facebook here - she usually posts pics of her Bella Villa bound stuff so you’ll get sneak peeks! 


Hope you enjoyed the tour of some of the great stuff Sharon just brought to her space this week!  


That super comfy pair of perfectly chippy Bar Harbor wicker chairs (with octopus pillows, no less!) will not last! Cheers!
