Universal Language – By Nicole Baird

When Kristen asked me to handle this September’s Wanderlust, while she and Shane were abroad buying, I immediately went to work.  It’s a truly thought provoking exercise and one I have watched Kristen work on with great care and diligence. The seemingly effortless way she correlates the interior designer images with pieces she and Shane have acquired would definitely be challenging but also exciting for me!   My sense of style around interiors has been evolving in the last year at Robuck but mostly in that I am more open than ever to the application of antiques in all styles of design.   Below is a little bit about me to introduce myself and further our most recent acquisitions with design images that inspired me for my first Wanderlust entry.

 
YOU WERE BORN, THEN WHAT HAPPENED:
Raised in Atlanta, a rarity for this city, I didn’t travel too far when it came time to choose a college to attend. An avid Georgia Bulldog fan my entire life, the University of Georgia, a mere 70 miles east, was the perfect fit. My first genuine opportunity to travel came after graduating college, backpacking through 10 European cities in 30 days. Traveling abroad ignited a passion for exploration that I hope to continue throughout my life.
 
FAVORITE Robuck Piece:  
A rare Sicilian two-drawer center table. It has a stylish ease and I covet every elegant detail.
 
FAVORITE TRAVELS:
Within the U.S., it would have to be the tour I took of the California coast. San Francisco, Napa Valley, and Carmel, each one unique yet just as beautiful as the last.

Abroad, I would have to say Vienna. The architecture and art museums were unlike anything I had ever experienced. One night, we got food to-go and sat in front of the Vienna Opera House watching Carmen with hundreds of others, locals and tourists alike. It was one of those truly unforgettable evenings.
 
FAVORITE QUOTE:
 “Not all those who wander are lost” J.R.R. Tolkien
 
SONGS I AM OBSESSED WITH RIGHT NOW:
“The Fear” by Ben Howard
“Unsteady” by X Ambassadors
“Jackie and Wilson” by Hozier

 

As Discover ADAC approaches I do hope that anyone who has the opportunity stops in to say hello, whether for the first time or as a familiar face. You may click on the inventory images as they are linked to our website which has descriptions, dimensions and pricing.  We are always more than happy to hear from you by phone or email and offer any other assistance possible! 

Kindest regards,
