Vintage White Home

This is the gorgeous vintage home of Vanessa Pleasants the blogger at The Vintage Whites . It really is a wonderful space filled with worked wood and vintage items collected over time. Pretty lights in the kitchen and dining room add a warm touch to the rooms and that green is the perfect shade! Love the antique mantel in the living room paired with the vintage couch. Super cute home....

Vintage Home in Australia

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

This is an amazing home in Queensland with gorgeous upcycled vintage pieces. Many of the favourite finds of these homeowners came from auctions and were then repainted, reupholstered or resurfaced. Pretty turquoise shutters with a rattan basket and sisal carpets creating wonderful texture in the living room.....of course the blue and white ginger jars are perfect as well.  I also love the green on the base of the kitchen table and the pretty map in the bedroom....

Fashion Designer Apartment

A lovely stylish bedroom from the home of former fashion designer Adrianne Vitadini and Veranda Magazine to lead off the post tonight. Don't you love the mix of antique pieces with simple modern furnishings! The use of these little stools, in front of the bed and then again covered in leopard skin in this living room, really adds a wonderful touch. I also like how the living room has been divided into two seating areas...both gorgeous. The dining room is a little more traditional that I usually like but it works in this space for sure.

Inspiration in White: Painted Furniture

I love painted furniture and I have many pieces in my home. Vintage furniture painted in a rustic way with chalk paint or milk paint are my favourites. I like how over time the lightly sanded parts become more pronounced and the intentional wear and tear sanded into the piece becomes real. I have done some of the painting myself and have had a few pieces done for me.
Of course the Queen of painted furniture is Miss Mustard Seed's, Marion Parsons. She is so talented and always does an amazing job on the pieces she hunts down at tag sales and flea markets. She has a great number of tutorials so head on over if you are considering doing a little DIY on a piece you have found or something you have at home. You can even buy her Milk Paint line to help you along.

Stunning Lake Retreat

Oh this is one of those homes where I need to go through each picture to check every detail! Love, love, love....The mix of rustic yet completely elegant style is something I adore and yet it is not so easy to do well in a home. This is the home of artist Dawn Raulet Hall that I found in Atlanta Homes and you can see that she has an artists eye for detail...check out the living room! An antique red trimmed love-seat mixed with raw stump tables, a twig rocking chair and a beautiful sculpture...who would have thought it could look this good?

The log canopy bed is just gorgeous and what about the bunk room!! Oh this house is very swoon worthy for sure....

Blue and White Obsession

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

I have a few pieces of blue and white porcelain in my home and I really love it. I think it goes with every decor and fits into a neutral colour scheme perfectly. This is the home and personal collection of Furlow Gatewood, who is a been an influential member of the design community for many years. These photos that House Beautiful featured are from the book One Man's Folly (by Julia Reed and published by Rizzoli) and feature much of his amazing collection of blue and white porcelain. Now this is a collection! I love the blue and white stool in the first photo and the stunning ginger jars in all shapes and sizes. Plates, candleholder and vases fill out the rest of the collection, all set in the most beautiful home.

French Country Lodge

This beautiful country house, built in 1652, in Normandy France was once a hunting lodge. Owned by a local farmer for years, the home had not been renovated and that was just perfect for designer Charles Spada. he took this jewel and turned it into a gorgeous castle! It had almost all of the original features intact and all he had to do was fill it with antiques . Check the amazing chandeliers, amazing prints and fabulous plates on the dining room wall. Love....but really the best piece is the leopard settee...oh I want that...So Good! Really a country house in France is my dream...maybe some day...
Enjoy!

Stone Cottage

This 19th century stone cottage in Southern Australia has really lovely details inside and outside the home. I just love the covered porch outside and of course all of the architectural details on the inside. Wonderful ceilings and moldings throughout the space make each room really special! The kitchen is also really fun with the blue dishes and the monogram on the door...I have never seen that before but what a cute idea!

Hope you have a great weekend planned!

Paris Chic Antique

A refurbished loft space in Paris is the setting for these fun ideas and interesting vintage and antique finds. Exposed surfaces include brick and stone left with a rough edge giving it a kind of industrial feeling. Love the butterfly wallpaper and the vintage cars in the kids room. So inventive the way they are featured on the wall....I  love creative ways of showing things to make them stand out!

Enjoy!

A Life Less Ordinary : Part 2

On Thursday this week I featured Part 1 of this post on the book A Life Less Ordinary. In the first part I showed you photos from the authors store, I gigi, and today I would like to share some photos from their homes. As I said the other day I find the book incredibly inspirational and their homes...well they are amazing!

 

Enjoy!
