IN THE KITCHEN :: MOD MEETS FARMHOUSE

Lately, I’ve been drawn to the idea of bold color in the kitchen – specifically in primary tones of red, blue and yellow. But I’m not talking cabinets or wall paint – I’m talking vintage modern accessories mixed with farmhouse style. Think mod pop art, enamelware canisters, schoolhouse clocks and powder-coated industrial stools… In a super warm […]

    I definately agree with you that this is a great idea, by using accessories for that pop of colour!
    For me also full on colour for units and walls is too much!!

    I love the retro feel of your chioces. Updating with accessories means that if you get bored or decide to move on with a different look then it is much easier to update.

PERFECT PALETTES :: RETRO REVIVAL

retro-yellow-pink-burnt-orange-palette

Whenever I’m in an inspiration funk for something to write about on the blog – usually first thing on a Monday morning – I dive into my color files to find something that’s speaking to me. Today? It was this… I’ve really been into these retro-inspired color palettes lately. That vintage brown. A little mustard yellow. […]

    Perfect timing! Though I gravitate to a palette of white and neutrals with texture and maybe some deep emerald green thrown in, I’m trying to be a little bolder in the new place I’m sharing with my boyfriend. Some new-to-us mid century chairs with bright blue upholstery are the jumping off point for this brave new world of colour and this is the kind of fun clashy-contrast that I want to pair it with.

MY SUMMER COLOR PALETTE :: VINTAGE TROPICAL

I know I’ve mentioned before how I like to make little ‘fashion goals’ for myself for every season, but another thing I like to do is give myself a palette … and use it in unusual ways. Because fashion, as we all know, isn’t always just about the clothes… Lately, I’ve been super inspired by […]

SOUND THE TRUMPETS!

I, myself, have always been a fan of costume jewelry, and cherish the collection of antique and vintage pieces left behind by my grandmothers. More than any others, these unique rings, brooches and necklaces are the ones I get complimented on, and the older I get the more I recognize the inherent value in having […]
