space Talk about WOW! factor. This custom-built media center is truly an OMG moment. It started with one of Vicky's clients looking for a piece of furniture to house her TV, electronics and personal art collection. A custom-built piece was the best way to meet her specific needs. A collaborative effort between Vicky, Jason (her master carpenter), and the client brought about this stunning result. Inspired by a custom bookcase in Vicky's shop, this media center was designed with the look and feel of built-in cabinetry but tailored to the client's personal criteria. Careful thought was put into how the TV would be displayed. Easy access to all electronic and media components was a high priority. Ample storage, ambient yet functional lighting and a showcase for the client's own collection were included in the overall design. In keeping with our store moniker, we incorporated many antique accents in the piece. We used beautiful antique French windows for cabinet doors while others were showcased with vintage ceiling tin. The inside was lined with beadboard and painted a lovely old-world gold. The exterior was hand-painted a creamy white and then distressed and waxed by our master artisans (Chrissy and Timmy).

The skill and artistry is beyond compare and definitely makes this media suite a true work of art. Come in and let us help you design your entertainment space.

Items from Vicky's shop were in abundance at the Hawkins house, which was on display at the Villages Contractor Showcase on Jan. 29.

Last weekend during the Villages Contractor Showcase tour of homes, people had a chance to see several homes which had been substantially decorated by items from our shop. We work very closely with both homeowners and decorators to get the desired results. Not only do we have beautiful, one- of-a-kind pieces, but we specialize in making your selection the right match for your own personal style. Vicky, who was present during the event, took photos at those houses, and we share them here Interior designer Christine Marsella from Award Winning Interiors was the decorator for the Hawkins house: space spa space space space space space space space space Sue Dartt was the principal designer in her home and furnished it almost entirely with items from Vicky's shop: space space space space space space space space space
