Welcome to Our Blog!!  

We Sincerely Hope You Enjoy Our East Hampton Project!!  

I will be posting lots of before photos and photos of different pieces that we pick up along the way.  I am so inspired by antiques, however, I love to modernize some of the pieces that we obtain for a more modern feel.

Welcome to TSC Blog!!!  Our First Blog Entry

July 7, 2017

Getting ready to start a major renovation.  Can't wait for this project to go from 1960's time capsule to a beautiful remix of modern and vintage.  I will be blogging every step of the way.  Looking forward to sharing our journey with you!!!  

Kitchen Time Capsule 

July 7, 2017

I feel like I'm walking into the Brady Bunch's house!!

Goodbye yellow floral wallpaper, you won't be missed!!

Wallpaper, Wallpaper Everywhere

July 7, 2017

Yikes!!!  I'm dizzy, I just need to close my eyes.  It makes you wonder what someone was thinking when they picked this.  At least they didn't wallpaper the ceiling like they did in the bathroom, LOL!

Darling, Let's Pick A Carpet So If The Exorcist Shows Up & Throws Up Nobody Will Notice!!!

July 7, 2017

OMG, First thing to go...THAT CARPET!!!!  Believe it or not, the carpet is covering up beautiful original penny hardwood floors.  I guess the pea green carpet was the better option in their opinion.

Avocados Anyone?!

July 10, 2017

One of my favorite things in this house is the stylish avocado green bathroom, HAHAHA!  Can we say, BYE-BYE?

It may have been trendy in it's hay day but those days are long and gone!!!

And Then There Was Harvest Gold...

July 10, 2017

Let's not forget about the other popular color of the 60's & 70's, Harvest Gold.  And Yes, That is wallpaper on the ceiling.  Come on people, is there anything worse than peeling wallpaper off walls?  Yes, yes there is... peeling it off the ceiling!  UHHHHH!!!

Getting Excited to Start

August 1, 2017

So, one of the most exciting things to do is to pick out all the STUFF!!!  Let's not get ahead of ourselves, I may be picking out "stuff" but it all has to do with stationary pieces that will create the base of the look we are going for.  I, myself, LOVE modern farmhouse, however, so do a lot of other people thanks to HGTV.  So I am going to for a modern farmhouse feel, but not too amped up.  We also live close to the beach so we will add in other elements to blend the two looks together.  

Love My Apothecary Cabinet

August 4, 2017

This photo doesn't do it justice, however, this was a find of a lifetime!!!  I was so excited the day I purchased these.  They are 16 ft long x 8 ft high.  This will take up a lot of wall space but it has amazing storeage possibilities.  This piece was built in 1906 and has all original wavy glass, all the locks and keys!  

It's simply an amazing piece and a great way to repurpose anitques into modern day uses.  

To Paint or Not To Paint... That is the Question!!

August 5, 2017

I use a lot of antique pieces in my design.  Some are beautiful the way they are and some are just too heavy and too dark and need to be lightened up.  


The question always is, should I paint this or not?


The answer is... it depends.  If you have a piece like my cabinet in the post below, my opinion is that it is a downright sin to paint such a beautiful piece.  However, someone else might not agree.  When I first aquired the piece I had every intention to paint it a cream color.  As soon as I saw it in person I felt guilty, so I didn't paint it.  I incorporated the dark color into my light colored design.  In fact, I even went out of my way to add an additional island to the kitchen so I could put another dark piece in to compliment the other.  

The bottom line is, listen to your gut.  If your gut is saying don't, then don't.  If you won't lose any sleep over it, then go for it!!!  Just do yourself a favor, do your reseach and make sure you're not about to defile a very expensive antique that could fetch a good sum of money.  


Case in point...The cabinet in the post below.
