With the slightest hint of the fall season, SEC Football, a glimpse of fall fashion, or as leaves begin to turn, it’s a que that change is just around the corner. When we think of seasonal change our thoughts turn to refreshing not just our personal wardrobes, but our surroundings, with new home décor and accessories.
The Idea Specialists at The Retreat at Mountain Brook are at it again, this time providing you with a look at Patina, a newly opened artful living, home decor boutique located in Mountain Brook Village, a short drive from The Retreat at Mountain Brook.
Opened by one of Birmingham’s favorite decorators, Melanie Pounds, Patina is an exclusive Verellen Boutique. Verellen conceives, designs and creates beautiful modern home furnishings with an old world attention to detail.
Style Blueprint states, Melanie’s decorator style is a perfect match for this line with its emphasis on balancing modern and traditional in seamless harmony. Mashups like Belgian linen and leather are unexpected, yet appealingly compatible.
Melanie says, “The line (Verellen) is rich in Belgian design, along with custom finishes, fabrics and custom details. We have the first collaboration of iPad and iPhone cases, bracelets, lamps, tables, beds, bedding and upholstery.”
So, if you’ve just moved into your beautiful luxury apartment at The Retreat at Mountain Brook, you’ll want to visit Patina. The store is chocked-full of pillows, lamps and throws, and according to our Idea Specialist, the artwork available at Patina is from Belgian artists and locals, and is reasonably priced. Patina also carries a line of tote bags, dog leashes, place mats, candles and more.
