CUSTOMER PAD: BIANCA'S LIVING ROOM


Extraordinarily talented stylist, Uptown Country Home customer, and best friend Bianca Elliott wheeled and dealed at a local antique mall for this new painting for her living room. Her retro chair, with original vintage leather upholstery, is a find from when she first moved in. We painted it purple, her signature color.
