The Design Desk: Works in Progress

It all started with a light fixture.

A beautiful light fixture hand-crafted from vintage door plates, a varied collection of color with the perfect patina combined to cast a warm glow and fill a room with warmth and charm.

This beautiful light became my inspiration piece for transforming our ordinary, run-of-the-mill home office/study into my studio...my very own creative workspace right on the first floor of our home. Oh, I was inspired, but now I needed direction. And I found direction right in front of me: the Design Desk at Old Glory Antiques Urban Home + Design! I turned to the talented Designer Tammy Price to turn my vision into reality.

Tammy started with a visit to my home. She helped me define how I would use the space, then “shopped” my house for existing pieces that I could use in my new room.

She worked with my beloved red walls, and showed me how to make the space unique with a few custom pieces.

Tammy offered ideas for adding texture and personality with fabrics, and encouraged me to showcase my collections and fill the room with a sense of "me".

After an hour with Tammy, I knew this project would be going from inspiration to installation in no time! My study-turned-studio is currently a work in progress...idea boards are being built, chairs are being reupholstered and collections are being hung. I can't wait to share my beautiful new workspace with you!

Repurpose: to reuse for a different purpose, on a long-term basis.

I have many items in my shop that have been repurposed (factory cart turned coffee table, silverware turned garden marker, chicken nester turned bench) but this light is my favorite. This beautiful circular pendant light fixture is handcrafted from vintage door plates by Nashville artist Robbie Cook. This fixture creates amazing shadows and a warm, down lit glow...uncommon, unexpected, beautiful.

I love round tables! This great table is 48", all metal, pedestal base, just a great look.

Beautiful new chairs from French Laundry Home...but this is not just another pretty chair! These chairs are very sturdy and extremely well made.

Fun signs from our favorite artist...just a reminder that you don't have to wait for a special occasion to tell someone how you feel!
