A New Chair Love And Wedding Tid Bits

June 15, 2012 at 9:04 am (Home Changes and Additions) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I fell in love with another chair. That happens often, doesn’t it? My wonderful, loving fiance drove me an hour away to pick the cutie up. Now, we have one more seat in the living room. Best part of this little guy though, is that it would work in just about every room of the house as things evolve.

What do you think?? I’m in love. I love the navy and white stripes, but my favorite part is the nail head trim that goes all the way around the back. I think he is pretty old and was redone with changes to the bottom half and I just adore how they did it! He even has casters, which make it easy to reposition for company. And once the walls are painted I think this will work so well in here.

Also, we have been super swamped with wedding planning. I have made every little detail by hand, and wold love to show you all, but also want them to be a surprise, so that will have to wait! But, I did want to show our framed engagement picture. This will be used at the wedding too, but also will be on the wall in our living room, somewhere! Notice the same feel of the stripes? Not intended, but I love it! I took an old frame and painted it, then roughed it up. The mat was also painted in one of our wedding colors. I think it turned out really well.

I think the two new additions go so nicely together in the living room! And, the rest of the wedding details are coming along too! Can’t wait to share! Only three months from today! 🙂

One More Office

January 25, 2012 at 1:46 pm (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Things have been busy.  Extremely busy.  But, I have been productive, and coming up in the next week or so I do actually have some updates and projects to share! I finally started a new job in Iowa and have settled in living in our new home all the time now.  This has kept me on my toes, and also been stressful, but at the same time I have been able to spend more time in our home and accomplish A LOT!

So, to tide you all over I wanted to share another adorable office I came across on VT Interiors blog.  And, stay tuned for some peaks and projects around our house! 🙂

My Perfect Bedroom

July 12, 2011 at 2:09 pm (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

On Apartment Therapy today I saw this gorgeous black and white chair by Ethan Allen.  First I drooled (we all know how much I love black and white furnishings, right?) and then I headed over to the Ethan Allen website to check out their new lines. 

More drolling ensued.  Before long I had picked out what my perfect bedroom in the new house should look like. 

The master bedroom in our new 1891 house is through a walk-through closet (very cool!) and is then sunken below a couple of steps.  There are raw beams overhead, and even a little stained glass window on the wall with a peak.  Yes, its very neat. 

So, this Ethan Allen room that I spotted had my mind combining my love of shiny black furniture, black and white prints, and raw, rustic wood features.  Here she is:

 

Gorgeous, no?  Actually, the Ethan Allen website had a ton of beautiful images, ideas, and products! Check out more of the line here: http://www.ethanallen.com/shop_by_room/bedrooms

(No, I’m not paid or sponsored in any way by Ethan Allen.  Although maybe I should be, becuase I’m in love! 🙂

Downsizing the Antiques

My obsession with vintage furniture grows and my house feels like it is shrinking.  So… some items must find a new home!  I thought I would list a few things here and there on here for you to all check out.  Feel free to contact me with any questions!

1. Two vintage metal lawn chairs and matching table.  So adorable!  SOLD!

2. Vintage tin top cabinet.  We used this as our kitchen island.  This isn’t the best photo, but it also has lots of charm!  SOLD!


3. Vintage Danish modern chair.
