The Pickwick Antiques Gallery…Part One

For almost thirty years, Pickwick Antique has curated the fine art of outstanding artists of various genres and mediums. Pickwick has amassed a collection of fine porcelain, bronzes,and sculptures. Our pieces have been placed over the continental United States as well as around the globe. Some of our artwork has become a part of celebrity homes as well as being a part of several outstanding movies. Yet,the best part, is knowing that our art has found a special place in homes where they are treasured.

 The gallery is evolving and features paintings in oil and watercolor as well as accessories that complement the era or theme of each painting.Our first gallery features...The Ladies of Pickwick . These are representative of the 18th and 19th century in different venues.

Come by and visit us!

The Royal Wave Continues

There was simply no way to avoid the celebration of the Royal Wedding....At Pickwick, we prepared for all of the pagentry as well. The finest silver was polished,the tea was set, horses groomed to perfection for the day’s event. The Duchess Of Edinburgh made her entrance to the sound of bagpipes. Britannia was poised and the symbols of England, the lion and the unicorn,were positioned for the best view. Of course, HRH Queen Elizabeth the Ist as well as her cousin HRH Queen Mary continue to overlook the festivities. 

If you love Great Britain, you will love Pickwick!

Art and Accents

Not my best photography of a beautiful painting....What a fabulous study of architecture color and time.

Living With Color

When I open my closet, I see colors that I love and have finally figured out...what colors make me joyful. I will be the first to admit ....YES ...I do have a collection of black and white blouses and slacks that I cannot live without throughout all of the seasons.

However, the minute the seasons change....my closet takes on a life of it’s own...Turquoise, azure, chartreusse, pink... a color flash lifts my spirits and come autumn.....More Crimson!

Neutral interiors with a beautiful antique piece next to a contempory item or accent changes something instantly. Art and paintings add color and  interest.Textures, textiles, pillows and fabric add another sensory level. Don't forget the light....Open the rooms with natural light to awaken your soul in the morning....use lamps for direct and indirect lighting...Think outslde the comfort zone with lighting in usual places....(Think closets, and laundry rooms) Use mirrors to reflect the colors and add depth to an area...Make certain the mirror reflects a grouping or interior and not a ceiling. 

I, personally, love a touch of whimsy somewhere within the interiors....life should not be taken so seriously...

Bring nature into your home whenever possible. As Always....Design is in the details!
