Exciting News!!!

We have extended our services to include Interior Decorating. Please contact us for a free in-home consultation with Designer/Artist  Jo-Anne Coletti and her talented team. Jo-Anne inspires to the past & present to create the romantic home of your dreams!



I received an email from a dear customer that asked me if I was ever going to post photo's of my " Powder room". To tell you the truth this is one room I over-looked in my Romantic Decorating section of my website, but thought its due time to show & tell.  To start I painted the walls a pale pink with white trim. I wanted a fresh, clean look to the bath mixing different white and cream accessories together. The bath tub was opened and lacked privacy so I added a vintage screen to make it feel cozy and inviting.  The screen is an old window with peeling white paint and covered in fabulous vintage fabric. It was actually my very first vintage purchase, oh gosh some 16 years ago and one I could never part with.  A ladder design rack houses white towels, a antique stain glass window hung in the window doubles as privacy with lace panels. Plenty of candles and Ivy plants finishes the look.


The pink paint used on the walls is -Abalone by Vista Paints.

***Do you have a fabulously Chic Powder room you want to show off. I am working on a new project for a magazine and need your photos. Please send high resolution pictures to me for consideration.  Email- vintagerosecollection@comcast.net
Thank you!


Wishing you a beautiful week!
Love Jo-Anne

Hello Angel Friends! It's so good to be home!!! Thank you for your caring emails! I had a wonderful visit with my Dad and his little posh Jessy. It was so hard to leave this time; I will miss our talks, massaging his feet when he was cold and tucking him in at night. As much as I know he is holding his own, I wish for someday that we could all be together...I miss you Dad!


My dad and his brothers and sisters, Yolande, Cecile, and Bruce. (Dad is in the light blue shirt.)

I have to say, I have a severe case of puppy love! And, who wouldn't right? He's adorable!
