Yesterday I met up with Elizabeth from Blue Clear Sky and had a cup of coffee and a chinwag. We'd been trying to get together for a few weeks now, but hadn't been able to due to illness, and work schedules, and we even had to postpone our get together today so we could wait for the snow to stop falling and roads to be plowed. When we did finally get together it felt like we'd known each other for years. We met at a cafe in Georgetown, a nearby town, because we were on a secret mission (well actually there was nothing secret about it, but I just like saying that) to stalk a house that is in one of Sarah Richardson's upcoming TV shows. Details coming just as soon as I confirm with my source that we had the right house.
Anyway, back to our meet-up. We met in Schillachi Cafe and Espresso Bar which was a perfect place for two slightly design-obsessed people to meet. The decor was amazing as was the service and even the coffee and biscotti that we both had.
Elizabeth and I both liked that cute little bench sitting outside the cafe and thought about taking it for about 2.5 seconds and then we decided to be good.
We loved the understated Christmas decor with a nutcracker holding a candy cane, all done in the neutral brown tones used in the cafe.
Isn't that a gorgeous wall covered in stone tiles behind the counter.
There was more stone tiles used on the end wall.
The furniture was all chocolate brown and the walls were decorated with local artwork that was also for sale.
Now this may get a bit weird, but their bathroom was so pretty that I took a few photos of it (but none of me in the mirror - I'm just not that kind of girl). There were sepia-toned pictures on one wall and gorgeous glass tiles on another.
Georgetown is a pretty small town and this little cafe is right on the edge of town. This was the view of the setting sun across the street.
And this is the view of the street where I think Sarah Richardson's house is located.
More details coming soon on our top secret mission!
