check out The Astoria, this beautifully Unique Trunk! We think it would work nicely at the end of a bed, or as a coffee table!

This cool trunk is new in store, and has just been custom designed for your home! Very sturdy with colors of antique cream, blue & black. In addition to being an interesting accent piece, it instantly creates extra storage ... blankets & quilts ... kids toys ... sports stuff ... lots of alternatives. Its light, sophisticated, and creamy colors offset the size and lighten it up as a décor feature.

Don't forget, we specialize in furniture revamping. You can always bring in a piece of your own as well and we can charge just for the service!

All of our pieces are one-of-a kind, signed and dated.

This item is affordably priced at $250.

Give us a call with questions, or if you're in the neighborhood ... just stop by!

Joyeuses Fêtes from us to you ...

Color of the Year! and one of our signature hues ...

Friday, December 11, 2009

Turquoise! Pantone just announced their 2010 Color of the Year and it is Turquoise ... of course, here at Mignonne, we ADORE turquoise. It is one of our signature colors. Our original shop had this shade on the walls and we've incorporated into our new boutique as well.

Turquoise is a calming and sophisticated shade. It blends well with many of its companions on the color wheel. It can be dressed up and modern, as when paired with chocolate. It can get down and funky, as when distressed on wood. Or it can go local and tropical ... girly and pastel ... electrically disco.

And all take beautifully to your individual design schemes. We can help you decide where and when to bring the 2010 color of the year into your décor plans. and then customize the furniture or décor item to meet your needs.

We'll be bringing you more about turquoise in future updates. For now, check out one of our newest pieces in store ... with, (of course), turquoise touches ... a neat old vanity complete with sink.
