I’m preparing the shop for vacation before I temporarily close on Thursday, June 25th. I had a blast styling four vignettes with various pieces available for sale in the shops on Etsy and Chairish that if you order by Tuesday, June 23rd, I will ship on later than Thursday, June 25th. And with that I bring you the vignettes – Tropical Glam, Guy’s Game Night, West Palm Beach, and Chinoiserie Chic. Which is your favorite?
The latest collection of mid-century modern inspired pieces Dot & Bo curated for their Pretty & Polished feature is spot on! I’ve always been a fan of pink and I’m lucky my all male household allows me to sneak it in through accessories around the house. With Summer just around the corner, why not add a whimsical cockatoo print or modern pink pillow to your space? And pairing pink with a little brass never hurts right? Below are just a few of my favorites…
Update : Thanks to everyone who liked my board. The contest has ended and while I didn’t win the grand prize, I did come in third place and won a $100 credit with Dot & Bo.
I’m incredibly excited and humbled that my Dot & Bo Dream Room board on Pinterest was selected as one of the 10 finalists! The winner whose board receives the most likes by June 15th will win a $4000 shopping spree. If you like my board and would like to see me win – I’m dying to make over my family room – won’t you please ‘like’ my board by clicking here?
I don’t know about you but I’m having a hard time coming to terms that Mad Men ends tonight. The show which features big ego characters at a Madison Avenue advertising agency set during the 1950’s-1960’s has rejuvenated a fascination with all things mid-century modern. You can’t pick up an interior design magazine today without seeing a swanky bar cart. It was a staple during the Mad Men era and without the show, don’t think we’d see such a following for them as we do today.
Each week I am transfixed on the show’s set to see what similar pieces I have for sale or sold from AnthologyHouse. Be it an ice bucket, barware, or a coffee table I can proudly say that I’ve sold the same piece that has been featured on my favorite TV show.
And you can still get some Mad Men inspired decor in the shop including a pair of vintage cane chairs, mid century table lamp, Fred Press cheese board, vintage ice bucket, and brass swan planters. All have been marked down to celebrate the end of Mad Men. Here’s to you Don Draper!
Have you seen Justina Blakeney’s ad for Loloi? Not only do I love the rug they featured in her eclectic boho living room but noticed she has an almost identical giltwood crest mirror to one I currently have for sale on Chairish.
I’m doing some Spring cleaning to make room for some new pieces for the Etsy shop and have marked down E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G including the Vintage Italian Gilt Side Table and Brass Gazelle Bookends. All orders will ship within 1-3 business days. You can see more of the pieces on sale here.
Well it didn’t take long for my client and I to agree on wallpaper for her dining room – we went with Serena & Lily’s Palmetto pattern in olive/turquoise. It compliments her existing orange hue walls nicely. Now I’m just trying to convince her to wallpaper the whole dining room to add a little more drama to the room and also play off her white wainscoting. Wink. Wink.
The client already recovered the seats of her vintage 1940’s wood chairs (I attempted to find a similar chair style online for this design board) with Drygoods Design fabric. The reclaimed wood dining table from Restoration Hardware will be delivered by the end of this month and once we have the wallpaper in place, will get to work styling the rest of the room.
Since my client already has a brushed brass bar cart from Restoration Hardware, it will be fairly easy to style it up with some vintage cocktail glasses, shakers, decanters, and other barware goodies. The buffet table (attempted to find similar for this design board) will also remain as she had recently purchased it from a local artist. It will be flanked by Schoolhouse Electric Lily Table Lamps. I’ll then finish out styling the buffet with new and vintage accessories.
We will also replace her existing deep red roman window shades with white curtain panels, supported by walnut and brass curtain rods. I personally like the horn finials from Anthropologie and think they’ll add a touch of whimsy to the space. And lastly I included a ceiling pendant option to replace her existing craftsman style pendant. I adore Schoolhouse Electric’s Vega 5 Chandelier in antique black and think would lend a modern industrial vibe to her room.
I was recently contacted by a client about assisting her in making minor interior updates to her Northwest craftsman home. She already has a great canvas to work with – an updated kitchen and bathrooms, newly painted walls with beautiful white crown moulding, and gorgeous hardwoods throughout the home. Over the next few months, we will replace her dining table, cover one of her dining room walls with new wallpaper, and give her dining and living rooms a facelift with modern and vintage accessories and window dressings.
Working with her dining room’s existing wall color – Devin Lil’ Melon – she would like an accent wall with blue print wallpaper that will compliment her orange walls. She initially selected Serena & Lily’s Palmetto Wallpaper in Olive/Turquoise however we want to see some more designs that give off a modern, playful vibe before we make our final selection.
We are waiting for samples to arrive before we narrow down our selection. I’m leaning towards two of these designs but won’t know until I see them in person. Do you have a favorite? Which would you choose?
I’m excited to share I’ve just listed some new pieces in the AnthologyHouse online storefronts on Chairish and Etsy. As you can probably tell I’m drawn to black and gold right now and the pieces below reflect my favoritism for this glam color combo.
Today I’m excited to share my top picks from Dot & Bo, an online company that not only offers inspiring furniture and home decor, but beautiful curated collections from their hosts that travel the globe seeking inspiring design. Dot & Bo recently contacted me about becoming an affiliate partner and I’m thrilled to feature some of their pieces on AnthologyHouse.
I personally selected my favorite pieces and bring you a collection inspired by the upcoming Valentines holiday with hints of gold, pink, and white. Do you have a favorite from my top picks? If you purchase an item from my top picks, I’ll share your style pic on the blog and Instagram. Happy Shopping!
