Beadboard Xmas Part Deux!!!!!

 I feel like Beadboard got it's presents early.
We got the shipment from Arte Pura and I ripped into it like a crazy person!!!!!

I wanted a very Figue xmas in the color palette for the shop
and the bedding, candles and pajamas hadn't arrived yet.

So here it is.The Magia bedspread/duvet with the crochet and the Arte Pura logo in a wide swath across the bedapread.  The bottom two layers, one of linen and the second in linen encased with organza in the new color FATA OLD ( a grey lilac).....Is gorgeous.

This tablecloth is in the same color.
The grey lilac is paired with grey, cream, white with touches of amber and mercury glass.

And we got candles!!!!!!!!!

The samples arrived in great shape beautifully boxed... So yes!!!!!
We are already taking orders for them!  This one being taken for a test drive.
It is performing well burning in a hole in the center and then when it gets way down you can stick an led votive in there and it will go indefinitely.  I blogged on it.....

So I added another bed to the shop to show the grey. 
 And the Topazio pillow with pearls and crystal, with the painted roses.

The figue floral arrangement with recycled paper and candles with the Arte Italica Candlelabra

Remember the peach souffle bed?  Here it is with the new Admiration pillow shams
from Anne de Solene.

The printed shams are reversible to tiny pink flowers on the back.

The pajamas are incredible.  Here is the "t-shirt" Poveglia. Shown in Fata Old (the grey lilac) with crystal down the front and parssimentarie. (obviously THAT word isn't in the old spell check!)

This is the darling Lunga Nightdress with the relaxed ruffled sleeves with pearl trim,
 and three layers of lace on the bottom...Two of the buttons are tea cups.

Palmaria with the tulle embroidered with roses........Fabulous.

The Berrgeggi pants.  For the younger fry?  Maybe not. 
 Low rise, belt loops, and pockets in the back like jeans.

When you sift all the orange colored pumpkins from your velvet ones, you can still use them........

Here is the cash wrap with the poinsettias locally grown from Ellison's gardens.
They have a pointsettia festival every year.

And here it the xmas "Cofferet Prestige" from Herve Gambs.  We sold out and are getting more.
The flower is a diffuser you spray with the Bois de Cashmere fragrance.
The Bois de Cashmere for this time of year is just, well, RICH.  Men love it, women love it and it smells like a room in a big house with a fireplace, leather furniture cashmere throws and some cognac.
That's Christmas here.  I'm pooped.  Bring on the eggnog!!!!!!

  3. I don't blame's all so gorgeous. I know you have to be crazy busy right now. Enjoy the season. XO, Mona

  4. I love Arte Pura. Your displays are so beautiful, I just want to snuggle in this bed.

  5. The new Arte Pura linens are SO romantic, and I love the soft rumpled texture to these linens; you can lie down for a nap without worrying about wrinkling the bedding like you would with crisply pressed Sefora or Yves Delormes. Maybe that's what luxury is all about today -- elegance that you can really live with,beautiful things that enhance your lifestyle instead of restricting it.

    Joyeux Noel, Maryann!

  6. ...Okay, I'm officially a dork. I meant SFERRA, not Sefora! I just ordered my niece a Christmas gift from Sephora and somehow the two brands fused together in my brain. Maybe I should tell my hairstylist to cut back on the blonde; it's going to my head!!

  7. Hi Maryanne! Your shop looks so beautiful! How exhausting...and exciting...the holidays must be for you! Hope you and R have time to sip a bit of eggnog amidst it all (I "wet" the bottom of a glass of milk with eggnog every so much harm can a tablespoon do???). XO Trish

  8. Greyed lilac...fig...yummmmm you paint a beautiful color palette...everything is just gorgeous!


  9. Maryanne, it is so chic . I wish you a merry christmas and an Happy New Year.
    See you next year
