Everything seems to come back again. I mean, I was shopping with my son and we saw an MTV t-shirt while they blasted "funky cold medina” - I couldn't lie about this! The late 80’s and 90’s were interesting years for style, but some good things did stick around.
I've created a little old-meets-new mood board recognizing vintage style seating because it seems this style is coming back around as well. Personally, I love how vintage seating can be mixed and matched. No matter how many times you may change up your space, chances are, you can find a way to work in these pieces.
1. First of all, if you don't see the beauty in this couch then we can't be friends... It has all around style and comfort. That color is classic! I love a good camel colored sofa.
If you’re lucky enough to find this beauty at a garage sale, please don't pass her up! I've actually stumbled upon a new site that sells vintage and new high-end furnishings. You can find this Ralph Lauren Vintage Couch among other things at Sotheby's Home. Did you know they had a store for furniture? It’s pretty awesome; leave it to Sotheby's to continue to give us classic pieces.
2. This gorgeous ottoman is also vintage. I found this posted online but you can find a similar one on annieselke.com. Or, just keep your eye out at estate sales and consignment shops. If you find an old tapestry, you can have an ottoman recovered for a one of a kind, colorful ottoman.
3. I had to throw in a little modern for you. This is a new chair that nods to a midcentury style. You can find this at Wayfair.
4. This color is West-highland White from Sherwin Williams. You know I love my neutrals, and this color would go fantastic in a vintage-inspired room. Because it is so light, it lets your focus settle on the seating. It is an earthy tone, which compliments the overall vibe of the room.
5. Would it be vintage without a pop of color? This stunning blue is Gibraltar from Sherwin Williams. The deep, dark color, allows your unique, vintage seating to shine.
Camel and blue pair together so well, I wouldn’t want to put another color on the walls!
6. We all need a little succulent don't we? Adding plants to a space is a great way to add natural color and as a bonus, you have natural air filtration! I liked this planter and stand as it has a bit of a 70's vibe.
Succulents are also low maintenance, so you don’t have to worry about them dying on you. They also thrive well in rocks, which tie in to the earthy tones of this mood board.
7. Tapestries were definitely popular in the 70’s, but have graduated from hippie wall hangings to intricate, vintage wall décor.
This one specifically has some tasteful fringe and neutral colors so the texture can be the star of the show. I would suggest hanging it all by its own and letting it be a focal point for the room.
By mixing in contemporary colors, some current pieces, and of course, plants, you can curate the perfect sitting room with nods to vintage style without looking frumpy.
Don't discount timeless pieces in your home. As I said before, everything comes back around!

Well hi there! Thanks so much for visiting the blog today. I've got a furniture makeover to share with you. I just can't pass up a good piece of furniture that I can add some color to! See the clean lines on this baby, it's a score for sure! If your refurbishing furniture, and are looking for ways to do it, mineral paint is a great option.
I found this piece at a garage sale for only Five Dollars!!! It is solid as a rock you guys. This small side table is very heavy, it made for quite the work out to get from the garage sale back to my house, lol! I wanted to try out Fusion mineral paint and my little guy wanted a new (small) dresser to put his t-shirts in. He is tired of putting them on the hanger - for real. Anyway, I am always looking for ways to add some affordable furniture in our home. This is a great project and will go to good use. Plus, anyone that knows me, knows that I am always looking for ways to save money, and painting old furniture is a great way to do this.
Since this will be going in my sons room, I wanted him to choose the color. He really wanted black. Guys, everything in his room is already painted black. His bed is a trundle that I took from white to black. Dressers and side tables, all black.
So, I convineced him to go for a little blue! I saw this color, Homestead blue from The Painted Estate in Denver and I fell in love. I told my son I would add some black wax to it so it would look just a bit darker. He reluctantly, agreed. lol. If your looking to buy the product you can also purchase online here.

Mood Boards help inspire clients to begin to see how their space can be transformed with a few small changes. The board featured here, was created for a clean modern space, bringing some natural elements and a touch of color to the living room. It really is a space that I could really to live in.

Benjamin Moore Paint Color
One of my all time favorite paint colors is Kendall Charcoal from Benjamin Moore. I suggest it often to clients for cabinets, accent walls, ceilings and moody rooms. I wanted to take some time today to highlight this gorgeous paint color and it's great hue.
When I suggested Kendall Charcoal from Benjamin Moore Paints to my client for the cabinets above, they were a bit nervous. They asked, will the room look too dark? I assured them that the room would not feel dark, but custom and updated. We chose Edgecomb Gray for the walls which provides a nice neutral backdrop.
This color is beautiful against a clean white trim or paint color for crest contrast. It is a green gray paint meaning there is a slight green undertone to it.
Front Door Makeover
So excited to be sharing my front entry transformation with you all! Our entry way has been neglected since we moved in. I also wanted to buy a new front entry door so didn't do a color on the main front door when we painted the home, but now that we have decided to stick with what we have I knew that paint would make the entry way more interesting and welcoming.
Here is a photo of the entry before. The door was Urbane Bronze from Sherwin Williams, (a great color for trim and doors by the way!) It is also the same color as my fascia and garage door trim. I had painted the entry flooring a couple of years ago with an indoor / outdoor paint that didn't last long with the wear and tear of the winter here. Plus, I chose a light color that matched our trim, but isn't great for hiding dirt and wear and tear. (Even though I do like the contrast)
When clients are looking for a light cool gray, I always review Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl with them. A favorite Benjamin Moore Color with a very light tone.
Gray Owl from Benjamin Moore is a popular paint color. That's why I have decided to highlight it today. It isn't really one of my go-to colors, but many clients ask me about it so I feel it's an important one to cover.
This is a very pretty color, but it does change based on what it is paired with and the light in the room. It is a cool gray green. Here it looks beautiful on the cabinets. Notice the marble is a gray blue but it still blends wonderfully with the space. The natural elements of the lighting and stools blend very well.
