Doyle @Home Preview March 10th Auction

We went to the preview for the Doyle @Home auction scheduled for March 10th. We did not find much that excited us, but if you are decorating your house or apartment this is the sale for you. There are some very reasonably priced items that could be a decorative pick me up for a room in your home.

Since some of my recent blogs have been on decorating with mirrors and lighting, and buying patio decoration at auction, I thought I'd use those as examples from the Doyle show.


Georgian style brass hall lantern Est. $500 - $700
A lantern like this goes with almost any style and need not be limited to a hall. It would look great in a library or media room. 

The mirror on the left is gilt wood and estimate at $400 - $600. It would dress up any room, and would look particularly good in a powder room, in my view. The neoclassical pair of mirrors on the right are estimated at $1,000 - $1,500. A pair of mirrors can be a real find because they also can look great flanking a piece of furniture, like a sofa, with a painting or other decoration in between.

With Summer coming there were several patio options. Most don't show in the photos very well, but are a very reasonably priced option compared to retail.

These painted metal tables are estimated at $200 - $300, and there are similar chairs for which the hadn't yet posted a photo that were estimated at $200 - $400. 

These ceramic garden stools would look great inside or out as side tables. They are estimated at $100 - $150, and a bargain.
Finally, just to post something funny, maybe you 'need' a dinosaur for a decoration some where! This is from the collection of the decorator Jamie Drake. 

This dinosaur is estimate at $150 - $250. 

There may be some bargains to be had at this auction, depending on what you may be looking for to decorate your home.
