The Pemberley Inspired Buffet

As I gathered the key pieces for my Jane Austen themed window display, I found inspiration for their makeovers in her novels, and the movies that were based on them.  Some of the pieces were simple or had more of a rustic, country cottage feel.

These are the pieces that I imagined might have come from the Bennets' charming country home. 

This buffet however, I felt was a little more regal...

 and therefore could have graced one of the stately rooms in Pemberley, the home of Mr. Darcy.

Of course this long, lovely buffet would be gorgeous in a formal dining room.

However, it would be just as sweet in a bedroom, a hallway, bathroom or a family room...

My husband imagined a flat screen TV sitting on top.

Wherever this piece ends up, it is sure to make a statement.

Once again, I chose my favorite color combination of Old White and Paris Grey. 

Refined without being too stuffy...

Neutral, but not without character...

A little different than it's original flame mahogany veneered former life.

I think it makes for a lovely feature in the Jane Austen window.

Thank you so much for your sweet visit!  I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Best Wishes and Blessings,
