Dealer Spotlight: Dealer #339

Sep 21, 2011 casual, corbel, elegant, hand painted, lamps, server 0 Comments
Dealer #339 is located on the upper level of Potomac West Interiors. 
Her style oozes with a casual elegance – you will always find clean lines matched with bold colors, beautiful patterns and warm textures in her space. She always incorporates a shabby chic, rustic or primitive piece to give her style a comfortable, easy feeling. We love her pieces because they look like they were taken from the pages of our favorite home and garden magazines. 
Featured above is an antique corbel. It is made of wood and is beautifully hand carved. This piece would be simply fantastic on a mantel, hanging on a wall or in a doorframe. The wood tray & stand is made of maple and is perfectly aged – a fantastic size for serving or storage. 
Also featured above is a hand painted floor lamp with a brand new shade. 
Her pieces give any home a warm, welcoming feeling and a sense of elegance. There is so much to choose from in her space and she refreshes it weekly – stop in and check it out!

How Much is That Birdcage in The Window?

By

Sep 14, 2011 shabby chic, vintage, window 0 Comments

Each month one of our dealers styles the front window at Potomac West. We love to see what our dealers do with the space and how they showcase their individual style. It is the perfect way to show off all of the styles of furniture and accessories that Potomac West offers.

This month Dealer #106 has filled the front window with her spectacularly shabby and vintage style goods. She has featured a large shelf unit made from fruit crates that is perfect for cubbies, books and pottery. There is an adorable large yellow coffee pot with a Hummel painting on the front that would add the perfect splash of color to a shabby chic room.

The cream metal birdcage and vintage scale are right in tune with the shabby theme and add an element of playful vintage fun to her style. Dealer #106 plays with metal pieces and pottery often in her spaces which give her style textural layers that keep it interesting and unexpected. Dealer #106 often features different color and textured wood pieces that add layers of warmth and richness to her look, like the wooden berry carrier she has featured in the window.

Her use of textures and variety of organic and playfully colorful pieces make her style unique. There is always something to be found in her space and her inventory changes regularly. If you are interested in any of her pieces, stop by or give us a call at 703-519-1911!
