English Manor Gardens & Interiors - Leesburg

Fun day today - no work and lots of play! I had a lovely lunch with two college friends - one of whom has taken a 2 year post to Switzerland with her company. She and her husband and two boys are off on a wonderful adventure! We had a lot of catching up to do - even though the three of us live only 45 minutes apart we hadn't seen each other in a long while. We joked we'll probably see more of each other in Europe (we'll have to visit!) than here in Northern Virginia.

If you come to No. Va, put Leesburg on your list of places to see. After lunch it was time for shopping - first stop was English Manor Garden & Interiors. Painted furniture and antiqued mirror surfaces dominated, along with lovely accessories and pretty tablescapes.


Love how this book is displayed on a stand - I need to do that!


Gorgeous lamp.

Faux artichokes in a beautiful wooden bowl.



Somehow these hot pink Christmas bulbs look so in-season in this tablescape.

Love the circle motif on these painted cabinets.





This is the illustration from English Manor Gardens & Interiors' business card. They don't currently have a web site but can be reached at 703.669.3300 - 27 South King Street - Leesburg, VA - 20175









The shot below is from a narrow alley leading to the town's parking garage. A store devoted to pets has this wonderful topiary dog there to greet you - how apropos.

This was a fun tour. I love so many of those images. Spotted my sofa table in there too. The blue grey cabinet units are stunning. Are those antiques?

I love the mirrored table and bright pink accessories.
{Our home is in the mountains, on the edge of a lake, but I am so so drawn to the glamour on your blog!}
