Another Great Tara Shaw Day!

May I introduce to you...Tara Shaw, her team, and her dog, Jack. From Country French to Directoire, her antiques can be the key components to form many stylistic vignettes for your clients. Specific moods can be created using Italian, Country French, Formal French, and painted furniture- enhancing your look and minimizing your search....cuz it is all here!Tara is an "insider" in European buying circles, having spent over 10 years developing an exclusive network of people and sources. She's also a master at the subtleties of importing products into the United States. Dealers and designers come to New Orleans from Florida to California to take advantage of her incredible selection, sense of style, and price. Above image is from one of my very own Tara moments. A very happy client, indeed.
I have exhibited pieces in my client's homes from Tara Shaw for years. She is my go-to-gal for aged, elegant, and my kind of artifacts.
Lovely creams and whites. The perfect elements for modern or traditional interiors.
Jardinieres for inside or out. Antique iron..scrolled or simple. Table bases made with slate or marble tops. I am like a kid in a candy shop.
Each of her exquisite showrooms, in New Orleans and Houston are chocked full of the kind of pieces that I have been known to actually drool client's know that side of me.
Colors are muted and brilliant with age old patina.
Swedish antiquities that are rare and not available anywhere else in our world.
The aesthetic is mind boggling. Tara knows how to arrange her shop to inspire desire.
Sigh...I think that it is time for a trip to New Orleans..beignets and Tara are my list...Yum!
