This look is hotter than ever….. you can get it at Chartreuse!

In every mag and new design book on the stands you’re sure to find cowhide rugs along with antlers.  It’s hot; it’s in; it’s classic enough for any style room.

If you’re worried that it’s a little too trendy….. don’t….. When the mags are tired of publishing this “now” item you can rest assured knowing these rugs line the floors of many famous homes and have for years…. never going out of style!  (ps…. this one still has the branding mark of the rancher!)

Be sure to click “shop online now” button at the top of our home page and see this and many more items available at Chartreuse!

French Industrial Chandelier


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Photo does not do justice….

This chandelier was once a typical… shiny….. brass piece that’s been seen in every hotel, house and restaurant across the Country!  Yes…. it’s true.

Many up-cyclers have been spray painting these for years….. re-inventing there look and of course…. improving it.  I myself have used every possible spray paint color on them!

But this….. this is absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!  It’s my new obsession this week!  I feel like I’ve finally mastered this galvanized look!  Yaaa me!  And mixed with the French crystals…….. it’s a perfect fit for that French Industrial look.

I promise to take a better photo once this one is installed.  The room it’s going in is flooded with natural light and I’m sure will make a much prettier setting.  Then you should be able to see the different layers and textures.

Organic Display for Jewelry in CHARTREUSE!

I’ve been dying to create this display….. along with others….   One down and many to go.

I grew up in the mountains and fortunately had parents who loved to take us away through the summer.  I felt I had the best of both worlds…..  a great life exploring the hills of West Virginia….  mixed with trips to the Smithsonian, antique shoppes, etc.  Clearly all these experiences have had an impact on my personal taste…. and this display case is a perfect example of that!

Can’t wait to fill it with our new lines of jewelry!  Remember to catch us on facebook and keep up with daily updates on new pieces in house!

I am asking you to go to this link…… read the story……  get angry……..  sign the petition.  PLEASE!

Kelly is a personal friend of mine.  She’s a loving and caring person who would do anything for anyone.  She’s an example of how we should treat people with or without a disability.  However, this battle she’s fighting on behalf of Jenny, who our government does not protect, is a battle she can’t fight alone.

Please join in by signing this petition and show your support for a disabled American. It sickens me to think this could go on in the country that I love.  I am personally involved with a case right now that involves a rapist who has been given more rights than Jenny.  It’s time to take a stand and quit talking about the bs…. and do something about it.

Thank you!

Another Chapter….

I was just reading my old blogs from my Beach Chick Art page….. I then looked at my first blog, dated June 2011, “About Chartreuse”….. this was before the doors opened and I was itching to make my way…

My vision has pretty much stayed the same…. although I have not been able to get all my goals and dreams off the ground…. yet!  (Of course I’m never going to stop dreaming….. so go figure) Which brings me to CHARTREUSE’S next chapter……  CLOTHING and JEWELRY!

Not just any clothing and jewelry…..  as I wrote in my very first blog….. LOCAL DESIGNERS!  I am now working on a boutique style area inside CHARTREUSE where I will be selling and showcasing clothing and jewelry designs from the UP AND COMING!

SO STAY TUNED…….. and keep an eye out for my CASTING CALL….
