Candace Barnes Antiques

Candace Barnes has a wonderful Antiques showroom
in San Francisco. Her taste in classical furniture
is very apparent in the way her own home is furnished.
She has 6,000 square foot showroom and also designs
for clients.

Her lovely living room.

I really liked the glitz and glam of this dining room.

I've always adored libraries and really like
the dark wood of all the shelving.

With no exception, the bedroom is filled
with European Antiques.

What a lovely garden! This kind of space or
backyard is not easy to find in San Francisco!

A couple pictures of her showroom.

I picked out some pieces I really
liked from her showroom. This
is a really cool coral lined mirror.

Would you have guessed that
these are corner cabinets?
Very pretty.

The very classy Swedish giltwood chairs.

The wood on this Austrian parquetry
commode is absolutely gorgeous.

This is an Hermes Black glass and
chrome cabinet. Very chic!

I just can't get away from Venetian Murano
glass! I really love the stuff. This is a gorgeous
green chandelier. I wouldn't mind having this
hanging in my dining room.

What do you think of Candace Barnes' taste?
What is your favorite item or room?

All photos from Candace Barnes' site and 1st Dibs.

Rebecca - thank you! I am actually having the website/shop built right now so it will be probably another 1-2 months before it is actually launched.

M.Kate - Thank you! You too!

Jennifer - I totally agree about the corner cabinets. They're very unique and quite beautiful.

Thanks for coming by Fay!

Thanks Candi! I hope you had a great weekend too.

Lidy - Thank you! The name of your blog and your blog itself is divine! I will be by more.

Constance - Thank! I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

Mandy - I've seen a lot of coral themed items lately to the point of being a bit "coraled out"...but that mirror was just stunning!

Meg - I was really bowled over by her dining room as well. It's my favorite!

Acaligurl - Here we go with the green chairs again. I didn't even realize that I'd done it again until I read your comment and had to laugh!

I always love to see the personal spaces of wonderful designers, to see what their own personal style conveys. I love the style of Candance Barnes' living room...very layered and luxurious.

It can consequently be especially enjoyable to play with all the options. Microwaves ovens use high frequency electromagnetic waves to cook the food. Therefore, people are opting more for these fridges. Upright or canister, hepa filtered, bagged or bagless, there is an endless array of vacuums on the market today. Manual espresso coffee preparation is possible with the old machinetta stove-top gadget, but that would entail you to get the correct measurements of water and ground coffee, as well as manipulate flame size to get the correct temperature at certain points of the espresso preparation process.
