Definition of Patina: A surface appearance of something grown beautiful especially with age or use. Or a green film formed naturally on copper and bronze by long exposure or artificially (as by acids) and often valued aesthetically for its color.
The 3-day Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck has become my annual trek. The fair is filled with antiques, vintage, flea market, rustic and handmade items. The pages of Country Living Magazine come to life beautifully.
Claudia Jacobs of Claudia Jacobs Designs LLC presented “Fall Back in Love with Your Home” at the Hudson Valley Builders Association on Saturday April 6, 2013. The turnout for this event was amazing with a full house and additional seating needing to be pulled out. She spoke about simple changes you could make to your home that are extremely cost efficient such as changing the hardware on your cabinets, replacing your light fixtures, painting your cabinets, etc…
The event was very informative with professionals on hand to talk to you about low cost options they may be able to assist you with if you are not a DIY type of person. On hand were Lisa-Ann LaBue of Wells Fargo Bank, Scott Santarpia of Paul Davis Restoration & Remodeling, Michael R Berta, AIA Architecture & Planning and Janis Borguetta of Key Properties of the Hudson Valley LLC. All had amazing ideas and offered answers to the many questions that were asked.
Hat’s off to Claudia and congratulations on a very successful event. All who attended took a lot of good information away with email@example.com
