The Bella Cottage Giveaway–FIVE Winners!!!!

 

image

One of Cote de Texas sponsors is The Bella Cottage.   This online company is like one stop shopping for home décor.  They have everything from antiques to reproductions, pillows to sofas, rugs to cute dog bowls!  You name your favorite item for the home and they probably sell it. 

 

image

I particularly love the antique shutters they sell – and the repro putti.

 

image

The Bella Cottage sells trendy items like burlap pillows and linen slip covers. 

 

image

And they sell non-trendy items, like classic antique gilt chairs. 

 

image

They sell items from popular companies – such as Dash and Albert and the Pom Pom Collection.

Tara Shaw Maison:  A wonderful daybed, available at The Bella Cottage

 

But, I was stunned and so pleasantly surprised to see what line The Bella Cottage is now carrying: 

Tara Shaw Maison!

Tara Shaw, from New Orleans and Houston, is known for her wonderful antiques that she hand picks in Europe.  For the past five years, Tara has been quietly developing her own reproduction line – using antiques from her own collection as inspiration.  There are so many pieces – from large bookcases to quite small pieces like tassels and crowns. 

 

image

My mom loves this piece from Tara Shaw Maison.  I do too!

 

image

These two murals are new to the collection – and wow!  They are fabulous. 

 

So, what’s the giveaway?   In celebration of the new collaboration between The Bella Cottage and Tara Shaw Maison – we are offering FIVE giveaways from the Tara Shaw Maison collection:

 

image

These pieces are from her hotel silver collection and we will be giving away each piece!!!!  YES!!!!

 

image

You might win the oval platter or the small engraved cloche – matte finish.

 

image

Or you might win the large cloche, matte finish!

 

image

You could win the matte finish champagne bucket!

 

image

Or, you might win the large platter, matte!

 

All these pieces from the Hotel Silver collection by Tara Shaw Maison are made from real vintage silver – even the engravings have been reproduced.  The collection was inspired by pieces Tara has herself.   The pieces come both in a polished and matte  finish – but for the giveaway, all pieces are in the matte finish.  The Bella Cottage is thrilled to be offering five pieces from the collection to five winners.  First place is the large cloche.  Second place is the small cloche.  Third place is the champagne bucket.  Fourth place is the large platter and Fifth place is the small platter.  WHEW!!!!!!!

  1. Definitely Antique Gorgeous Oak Farm Table c. 1910. We plan to build (read: "dream about") a rambling English manor house in Texas someday. My husband said the other day, "You know, we need to have a long farmhouse kitchen table in the next house - enough room to seat all 14 family members!" And we do.

  20. my personal favourite is the engraved cloche with the plater, or the other cloche. it brings up memorys. when i was a child, and someone in the family had birthday, my mum served a peace of birthday cake under such a cloche, especially for the birthday girl. the other part of this tradition was, that the birthday child has to wear an old, broken tiara, for the whole day. nobody liked that, because the old wire was pretty itching ;-) since i have a child of my own now i really been thinking about continueing this tradition. but i couldnt find a nice cloche here in germany yet :-( so thank you for bringing back these nice childhood memorys for a moment.

With the the upholstered back and the glass shelves just makes whatever you display in the piece stand out. Also love the height of the item. Too bad it is already SOLD though. Just love it.

That was until I found your blog and realized how wonderful Texan women can be!! After living in Rome, Paris, and NYC for the past 10 years, your style and unique, feminine flair is refreshing and glorious. I ADORE your blog.

    Ok, Bella Cottage is a true treasure of a find! My favorite is the Antique Pair of Gold Gilt Armchairs c.1940s. They are absolutely lovely and as I am on the hunt for something as perfest as they for our (new) living room, I may just have to talk my husband into getting these for our 1st anniversary! :) They are stunning, yet understated, feminine yet substantial. They remind me of Marie Antoinette's entry parlor at Petit Trianon. Oh, they are just sensational!

  94. The Antique (set of 3) Deep Green Shutters circa 1920 are fabulous!!

  110. I love the Tara Shaw Maison Italian Buffet. The color is beautiful. Tara did a great job marrying the clean lines of the doors with the gentle curves around the top and bottom of the piece. It's not overly fussy which will appeal to those of us who want a streamline, cleaner look, but still love the old, chippy, patina of antiques. Also, the dimensions are good. It's not too wide or deep so it will work in most spaces. Lovely piece.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Wow, amazing giveaway and amazing things. Very hard to choose, it was more like I want that and that and that........but, the Tara Shaw Maison - Italian Grisaille with Pastoral Wall Scene (both) are so beautiful, the colors would work really well in my house, and I have just the right wall spot for them......have been waiting for just the right thing. !

  115. My favorite items are the mirrors! I love them so much! I couldn't pick a favorite because you have so many unique and gorgeous designs, and a lot of them are very reasonably priced as well.

  116. I liked the French Moyen Cloche Matte. It reminded me of days when the butler served dinner. Well, not in my house but in the movies.

  121. I would for sure get one of the armoires... I really would like one for EVERY room in my house, so picking one would be quite difficult! But I do love the ones with the worn paint look. And the white ones. And the warm wood is always great...

  123. I love so many of their items, but if I could only choose one, it would be the Tara Shaw Italianate chair. Why, you ask? First, I am of Italian heritage and it appeals to my esthetic sensibilities. I like the idea that it can be monogrammed, as well.
    I have a collection of hotel silver and would love to add a serving piece from Tara Shaw's new collection.

  124. Love the site, ideally like the French Petite cloche.

  125. I would definitely be so thrilled to win the large cloche-matte finish. After seeing, I believe a couple of cloche's in your dining room I have dreamed of one on my handmade pine table with a tall candalabra and a set of French side chairs. I am dreaming I know. If I could not dream, I would be sad. It keeps me going and I am most grateful for all that I have. It is a beautiful look. Thank You,

  139. I love the Bella Chateau Isabelle chair and the Pom Pom at home chair cover so much that I ordered the chair from The Bella Cottage a few months ago for my office.

  155. Joni:
    Pick just one?! I want a lot of things ... Since I absolutely love anything burlap and silver, I’d be happy to win anything in this giveaway … But, if I had my druthers, I would buy the Antique Parisian Mannequin C.1900 - I have wanted one for years -I would dress it up in vintage 1940’s suits, dresses, and hats, and I’d drape on some jewelry so I could enjoy the outfits as I dashed out to work each day.

  160. How to choose one favorite...an impossible task. If I had to choose just one, it would be the Oval Bow Mirror II because I am looking for one of those right now plus you can never have too many mirrors! Not to look at myself at but to bring in the light and have beautiful reflections of my favorite French furniture pieces and chandeliers! : )
    Thanks, Sylvie

  165. I truly love every item The Bella Cottage has to offer, but my favorite piece is probably the Bella Collection White Cheval Rose Mirror. It reminds me of something you'd see in a fairytale. It's so feminine and lovely, I can just picture Snow White or Cinderella standing in front of it. I would feel like a princess every time I got ready, with a mirror like that in my room.

  166. Hi Joni - Where to begin? The Tara Shaw line is jaw-droppingly beautiful. However, if I could have just one piece from Bella Cottage, it would have to be the Italian Fauteiul chair. Sooo beautiful.

  169. Hi, I love your blog and it's been really helpful and inspiring for my husband and me as we begin to design and build our Georgian-style home (with eclectic influences). Thanks for your insight and great blog. I would love to partake in a chance to win the Tara Shaw silver and my favorite item on the Bella Cottage website is the pair of Louis XV Serpentine Armchairs in Pale Dove Grey--I've wanted a pair all my adult life and think they would look amazing with my white and greige family room that we are building.

    with the lovely items from The
    Bella Cottage and Tara Shaw
    Maison! One of my favorite items
    in the home decor section is the

    barrel. It would be great for storage
    in our front foyer...The Hotel Silver Collection pieces in your giveaway would make wonderful heirlooms.
