Opinion Requested {Bevolo Gas Lanterns}

I shared with you our shopping excursion to Bevolo in the French Quarter to select a gas lantern for the front post of the Acorn Cottage. Today, I received two choices from the designer who helped us narrow our many ideas. Both are the French Quarter lanterns 18" that we love. The differences lie in the bracket choices.

I am requesting your help. The rendering of the house is below. The lantern will go on the outside of the front porch post closest to the front door. It will be very visible from the road.

Our intent is to create some Southern charm and a gas light is a great place to begin.

Option A: 18" French Quarter Gooseneck bracket

Option B: 18" French Quarter 1/2 Rodin


What are your honest opinions? Please share in the comment section.

Gas Lanterns, y'all!

Early Summer Mantle

It's almost summer, y'all. The countdown is down to three. I think I can! I think I can!

With some inspiration all the way from Seattle, I recently changed my mantle using the many summery natural curiosities that I have collected through the years.

Here's my inspiration by Timothy De Clue, Seattle:

I added a couple trophies, a glass pelican platter, a ceramic shell dish, and many shell accessories.

Who else is ready for summer?

Three days to geaux!

Summer Mantle, y'all!

Shopping for Acorn Cottage {Bevolo}

On Saturday, J and I also shopped at Bevolo in the French Quarter. 

Adding Southern charm to the new house begins with the addition of a gas lantern, so we stopped into the Bevolo showroom on Royal Street. There are so many lovely lanterns to choose from, and the salesperson {Sarah} could not have been more knowledgeable and helpful.

We favor the French Quarter model and are not certain just yet about the size. I sent Sarah the measurements and rendering, so she will be able to help us choose the right size for the front of our new home.

Take a tour:

While there, we also selected a new mailbox for the front of the house. It is a copper stunner!

I am having so much fun choosing new items for the house. It will be exciting to see the progress.

Bevolo, y'all!
