Winter at Aubergine Emporium Part I

I spent the afternoon at the shop today.  All the Christmas decorations have been put away and Pat is ready for the winter look to reappear.  I love these mirrors she found.  There were five identical mirrors that were full length mirrors and they would not fit on the wall if they were placed vertically so she hung them sideways.  Don't they look great? They are wonderful above the antique buffet and add a contemporary feel to the whole look while at the same time staying warm and welcoming.  The old ladder adds a whole different design element as well.
The following photo is of a little hallway we have in the back of the store.  To add a sepia tone flavor Pat used old pattern pieces and glued them on the wall.  Surprisingly enough, if she doesn't want them up anymore, they just pull right off.  She decorated with wood furniture and white accessories.  It really is quite interesting and makes an otherwise boring space quite inviting.
I love this bench.  It's covered in a creamy silk fabric with a raised waffle pattern.
Everywhere you look at the shop there is layers and layers to see.  We always tell the customers to be sure to look up.  You never know what you're going to find.  If you are in the Simi Valley area of Southern California, please stop by Aubergine Emporium.  The shop is always changing and new items arrive daily.
