Elegance and Rust
Sheryl and Steve are a husband/wife team who can pretty much do ANYTHING!! Steve builds many of their items - or at the very least re-purposes or marries together odds and ends. Sheryl is a genius at putting together their spot which tends to be in soft whites, filled with light and crystals and romance and elegance and comfort. Her white painted pieces are always absolutely perfect - I think it might have something to do with the 5 or 6 coats of paint, perfect sanding, waxing and finishing she does!!! Absolutely NO ONE does white better than Sheryl! And then in the midst of all of this elegance - she throws in a bunch of industrial, metal, rusty junk which you would think would never work................AND IT IS AWESOME!!!!! The rusty metal becomes regal and the already elegant whites become even more highlighted! She's a genius (well Steve isn't bad either!). The best part about all of this is that not only do they spend hours and hours and hours on doing this - they also have 8 children, a few grandchildren, another demanding business they run and Sheryl ALWAYS looks perfect!! If she wasn't so gosh darned nice we would have to hate her! Be sure to shop their spot - it had me making a LONG list of must haves!!
