Hello there, sorry for my absence yesterday... how quickly the days seem to pass. Another busy week is almost ready to be put to rest and I am definitely dreaming of the weekend. This weekend will be just us girls relaxing here at home, my daughter and me. I am excited to take a little break from work and spend some time getting the house in order.
We start our final round on the kitchen renovation next week and I am excited and anxious about it. There are still many choices to be made, that is how it is works around here. I did speak with my furniture maker yesterday though and we are going to put a contrasting color in the new piece that will hold all of my everyday dishes, now someone needs to pick that color please!
I have pulled a bunch of greys, and greiges to start with. I will be sure to keep you up to date on all of the selections.
I am also working with the wonderful Shari from Little Blue Deer on a makeover for the blog, it will be fun to have a fresh new look around here don't you think?
Also, a little bit of a delayed THANK YOU to Leaf Magazine for including some pieces from the shop in their current issue!
This is such a great kitchen. I cannot decide if I like the lowered eating areas that are so popular right now off of the islands. What do you think? I think this one is well done and the stools make it!
On a quick note- I was so excited that Pinterest came out with their new IPad app- if you have not tried it you should, it is very wonderful!
While I was in Atlanta I was very excited to see some great new lines, new to me and some new to all. Emporium Home was one of my favorites. That table is to.die.for. I love love it. The dark top with the beautiful metal base is just beautiful, this photo does not do it justice! I was so excited to meet Ashley the company's owner and designer. She was super sweet, beautiful and talented, I was very excited to find out that she is also a greige reader. Her designs range from furnishings, lighting, wall art and home accessories to jewelry. Each piece was something unique, stylish and well designed.
This little table, the flirt side table, was my second favorite of the entire show. I think I need one!
Just a quick peek at my weekend in review from my instagram pics of Atlanta.
I had a really great time and was very happy with my first trip to the show. There were so many fun new vendors to discover and meet. As I sift through my pile of emails and catch up on everything here at the office I promise to post more on the great displays and lines that were there.
I don't know how I missed it... Darryl Carter is having a Tastemaker Sale on OKL today!! I am dying over the chaise... and I think I will pick up a copy of his book that is signed too!! If you have a chance check it out there are some really wonderful pieces still available.
We took a quick morning trip to the flea market on Sunday. Always a good time! I was excited to see some new faces and of course some good friends. I fell in love with these vintage postal bags- so amazing! He had a few left you can catch him here if you are interested... (U.S. Vintage Leather 562 400 6680)
I love love these bags too with the linen outfit- yes please! Brothers of Industry always a favorite!
Always a favorite- the vintage lines.. I resisted this time but only because I have so many that we are making up into pillows for everyone.
The Rusty Bucket was a new find for me- their display was really amazing and I picked up some great vintage frames for a little personal project that I am working on. I believe that their shop is located in Camarillo, Ca.
I stopped by A Life of Vintage's booth early in the morning.. She had some really great pieces, love the dress forms and she had this huge antler that I loved. It was nice to chat with her too as I found out that she reads the blog. (Fun!) You can fine Sandee at Heather Fields Home and Garden in Westlake Village, Ca.
There were 3 of these beauties... I waited to see the vendor but she was out so I had to move on- aren't they so lovely!
How about you did you hit the flea market this past weekend? Did you get anything good? I would love to know.
