Spring Decor and More!

VHZZ9099

Well…the calendar may say January, it’s true. But we’re looking ahead to warmer months instead of dwelling on the short days and cold temps.  This time of year, we’re drawn to romantic, shabby chic decor…Valentine’s Day is on the way, and we’re romantics at heart, aren’t you? And we’re definitely thinking about what we’d like to plant in our gardens/on the patio once the last frost is over. So, we’re sharing a few items that might spark early spring decorating ideas or help you make plans to perk up your outdoor decor.

HXSL0784

Bring the outdoors inside with dried or silk florals, or a gorgeous vintage floral-themed lamp (available now at Michael Taylor At Home, $95).

HAJM8201

A vintage dress in a pretty pastel, whitewashed antique furniture, a beautiful wicker plant stand and 1950’s era McCoy planters help fill a home with romantic charm and are PERFECT with the gray wall paint that’s so popular right now. (Seems like everyone’s painting their interior walls gray, am I right?)

REDA4621

Planters and outdoor garden statuary are a fabulous accent to a patio or entryway, and we have some truly incredible pieces at rock-bottom red tag prices right now…plan ahead and pick one of these up to make a new focal point for your favorite outdoor space. Prices start at just $130…well below retail; these will go fast!OMOP9274

We have vintage Valentine’s day cards and romantic accents starting at $3.00…come see what’s new at Michael Taylor At Home this week! Open Thurs-Sat., 10-5. Our Charlie Chase downsizing sale continues this week, so please drop by and check out the items from the home of this country music broadcasting legend. Plus, we’ve got a HUGE Lebanon estate sale and another great 2-day sale in the metro Nashville area.

Don’t let the cold weather get you down…come plan for spring with us at the Michael Taylor Company!

My best,

Michael Taylor & Co.

 

 

 

Off-site Sales are On Point!

HCGH7669 (3)
Michael Taylor Estate and Moving Sales has been the leading estate liquidation company in Nashville for several years, and we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve expanded our line-up of services to include off-site sales.
What is an “off-site sale”, you may ask? Great question! Sometimes, it’s simply not convenient for our clients to have their liquidation sale on their property. So, we now have the option to move the items that would be included in a sale to our 9,000 sq ft retail location, Michael Taylor At Home, and stage the sale on our retail property rather than in the client’s residence.
KXGZ7995
Our 9,000 sq ft warehouse has tons of great display space for off-site sales!
What’s great about shopping off-site sales? The deals are just as good as a regular sale, but you have the advantage of shopping in the comfort of our conveniently located retail store, with lots of parking, great lighting and longer hours. No fighting for a parking spot on crowded residential streets, or navigating through narrow hallways or multiple staircases…we think you’ll like the sound of that!
Who should hold an off-site sale? These sales are perfect for clients who are unable to hold a sale at their residence due to HOA restrictions, or for clients who have a residence that is unable to accomodate the volume of street parking that a sale generates. An off-site sale is also great for the client who wants to liquidate the contents of a large storage unit; the contents can easily be moved to our retail store. We also recommend off-site sales for clients who want to clear out their home in advance of putting it on the real estate market so that the home can be professionally staged and show more effectively. Off-site sales are also an efficient way to do some downsizing or to liquidate a collection without the inconvenience of having the sale in the residence.
Of course, we price, research, advertise and stage items in our off-site sales with the same knowledge, care and experience as our on-site sales.
Our spacious, well-lit gallery is the perfect place to display the items in your off-site sale!

We’ll be holding more off-site sales at Michael Taylor At Home this fall and winter and encourage you to add them to your regular estate sale shopping schedule. You’ll find them listed with our regular sales on EstateSales.net. And, if you or someone you know is interested in learning more about our off-site sale options, please call us a 615-545-2867. We’d love to hear from you!

My best,
Michael Taylor & Company
P.S. We’ve got a lot of exciting stuff happening through the end of the month. 4 estate sales this week (check our listings for more info!) and our Tim Liddle art show is here at Michael Taylor At Home through the end of the month.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…Decorating with Mirrors!

IMG_4693

Mirrors are an interior design staple, and with good reason! A beautiful mirror is like a window you can move around your home.  They reflect light and brighten dark spaces. Their reflective properties visually expand small rooms, making them seem larger and more welcoming.

IMG_4545

We love mirrors at Michael Taylor At Home, and you can see from the photo above that we stock a wide variety of styles and sizes. Our selection varies from antique to contemporary.

IMG_4546

The way this mirror is framed elevates it into an art piece…but it’s as useful as it is beautiful. Isn’t it nice to have a mirror handy to make a final check of your appearance before you dash out the door? Entryways are the perfect location for mirrors because they are often small areas that lack natural light.

Here’s a fun idea…hang a collection of mirrors to accent a staircase wall. Painting the frames all white gives the grouping a purposeful and cohesive look.

Here a dramatic crystal-framed mirror dresses up a bathroom. If you want an instant upgrade in your bathroom, install a vintage or antique mirror. Who says you need to buy your bathroom mirror from a home improvement store, anyway?

Here smaller mirrors are added to a wall display of family photos and other framed art. The mirrors in this grouping reflect light into a small hallway space and add a little unexpected visual interest.IMG_3092

Tall mirrors that rest on the floor are dramatic and contemporary…the one in this photo is part of a set of three that are each 6 ft tall; available now at Michael Taylor At Home. Imagine creating a wall of mirrors with these three…so beautiful!

We love working with you to create the unique home interior of your dreams at a price you can afford. Whether it’s mirrors, or fine furniture, antiques, rugs, lighting, jewelry, vintage furs, china or home accessories, we’ve got it in stock at the best prices in town. Come see us this week!

P.S. Our deal of the week for Sept. 15-17 is 40% off of rugs, lighting and select art.

My best,

Michael Taylor and Company

Michael Taylor At Home: Sneak preview of our Gallery update!

IMG_3995

Our 9,000 sq ft retail gallery, Michael Taylor At Home, is closed this week for restocking, so it seems like the perfect time to give you a sneak peek of the awesome new stuff that we’ve added to our “modern mix” of fine furniture, antiques, one-of-a-kind vintage finds, artwork and more. If you haven’t been out to our gallery, it’s conveniently located at 478 Allied Drive, 37211, and our normal hours are Thurs.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

IMG_3989

Bamboo style furniture is “having a moment” in popular decorating right now; these two occasional chairs are a great example. The hand-knotted oriental rug is one of many in our gallery–we have a large selection of wool and silk oriental rugs in an assortment of shapes, sizes and colors (and at a price that won’t break the bank!). The jade statue is one of several high-quality antique jade pieces that are a gallery feature.

IMG_3982

Have a collection you need to display? This dark antique display case would make a dramatic backdrop for bright Fiestaware dishes, or treasured family photos. The antique dolls are just a sampling from an extensive collection we’ve taken on consignment. I think we can say with confidence that we have one of Tennessee’s largest antique doll collections for sale in our Gallery right now; check out the photos on our website for a preview of these special dolls.

IMG_3987

The ’70’s are back with this awesome lucite bar chair set. These are absolutely amazing…very Saturday Night Fever!

IMG_3979

Here’s another 1970’s-era set that we just love. The soft green tones of the painted wood of this dining room set are gorgeous. We’ve featured ruby glass in the china cabinet, but blue and white china would be pretty, as well. LKRF6240

Have y’all met our glamorous gallery ladies? Well, be sure to drop by and say hey to the best-dressed gals in town. We offer a curated selection of vintage gowns and furs in the Gallery–only the very best of the best from names like Lillie Rubin.  Stand out at your next charity function or holiday event–these dresses are truly amazing.

IMG_3992

We specialize in one-of-a-kind vintage items, and these 1960’s era Colorforms toys can’t be beat. For the toy collector, 1960’s enthusiast or nostalgia buff, these would be a great gift item (and we’re closer to the holidays than you think!).

IMG_3977

This carved buffet would add vintage style to holiday meals, events and gatherings…you also get a glimpse here of more of our beautiful hand-loomed rugs.

These items are just a small sampling of what’s new-to-us and in store waiting for you.  If you’re looking for specific pieces or if you’re an interior designer shopping for your clients, please consult with gallery manager Jerry when you visit- he’s got a wealth of ideas and resources for you, and would love to assist you in finding the perfect piece for your collection.

Again, the Michael Taylor At Home Gallery is located at 478 Allied Dr, Nashville and open Thurs.-Sat, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Come see us soon!

My best,

Michael Taylor and Company
