Tom and I were in Maine most of this past summer and, after returning to Maryland, we’ve been focused on our cottage here. We had a stone wall built, had parts of the garden re-landscaped, had a topiary greenhouse / potting shed constructed, and had the garage converted to a design studio for my interior and garden design business.
Speaking of design work, I’ve been spending more and more time helping clients with their interiors and landscaping. (I’ll share a few projects soon.) But, honestly, finding enough time to do that plus run the shop these last few years has been challenging. Because I am personally involved with every detail at Tone on Tone – from buying each item to styling each vignette – the store really limits my availability to focus on other work. Therefore, I have decided, with a heavy heart, to close Tone on Tone in Bethesda.
The shop has always been like another home; except everything has a price tag 🙂 It’s been a treat welcoming each of you through the front doors, and chatting antiques, decorating, topiaries, travels, etc., etc. So many of you have become dear friends, too! I’m grateful for (nearly) 15 years of doing what I love!! I look forward to recapping, in a future blog post, all the fabulous finds plus fun adventures.
Please stop in to say goodbye and have a browse around – the store will close in mid December. If anything catches your eye, let me know now so that I can tempt you with an IRRESISTIBLE deal.
Here’s just a sampling of the current inventory:
closer look at a vignette featuring a French giltwood mirror over a
Swedish Gustavian tall chest. The mirror has a fabulous ‘rope’ frame and original mercury glass.
There are unpainted furniture in pine, walnut, mahogany and cherry wood, as well. Below is a French fruitwood sideboard (80.75″ long) that would be great under a TV in a family room.
