Design Inspiration from Chairish

Chairish...
where design lovers buy & sell
and my favorite new app/website for
Vintage Findings

You'll discover an amazing array of smartly 
categorized, pre-loved goods & wares for home, design & gift giving. 

You can refine your searches by:
category
style 
color 
price 
&
location

You can easily design & decorate a unique, layered space just brimming with character 
from this all inclusive site. 
Styles include Mid-Century, Retro, Modern, Traditional,
Idustrial and of course, my personal favorite...Vintage!

"Vintage is the new new. Nothing proves your advanced design acumen more than mixing eras in a how-did-she-do-that way. Put a vintage Moroccan tapestry cushion on a Bertoia side chair, tuck a used ‘50s Danish teak writing desk into a modern playroom, load your state-of-the-art kitchen with Bauer dishes and Marimekko linens. It’s all in the mix."

Some of my favorite finds of the day....
an amazing collection of vintage signs.
LOVE.... this awesome "SWELL" sign!

And how about this upcycled vintage crate...has LILY written all over it!!

"The Holy Grail of interior style setters everywhere is the elusive “vignette”. This collection of seemingly random vintage objects placed on a table, console or mantel does the (cast iron? ceramic?) lion’s share of taking a room from serviceable to chic. Take said lion, add a vintage book, a used globe, a tiny obelisk (now’s not the time to be a minimalist), and whatever suits your fancy. Now you’re playing with the big kids."

How great will this piece look nestled amongst vintage barware on a Mid-Century server
...the perfect house-warming gift for Taylor's (DS) new digs. 



I had so much fun curating my own collections 
with the inspiring vintage pieces found at Chairish...

Our new house WILL have a formal foyer, this look is perfect! 
The fantastic vintage settee inspired the feel. 
A large mirror and deep wall coloring will complete the look. 

Gathering ideas for Taylor's new house decor. 
I'm having so much fun working with a masculine, guy theme, mixing and matching 
industrial, retro and some funky mid-century pieces as well. 
Check out the amazing light fixture..it's an old airplane part. LOVE.

Adding these unexpected pops of coral & teal  
to my holiday guest room this year. 
The tree in this room will be adorned with all white ornaments and 
glossy white wrapped gifts with big silver satin bows! 
The swoon worthy velvet upholstered head & foot boards inspired
this festive twist on Christmas decor. 

This "gather" table is my very favorite Chairish find (along with the SWELL sign!).
The vintage wood crate will be a perfect vessel for the tree.
I'll use the galvanized basin as a beverage tub during holiday gatherings. 
I'll add layers of nubby burlap, heavy muslin, 
fresh greens and cafe lights...a wonderful, warm, wintry welcome indeed.
