The internet is an amazing place! In my opinion, the most amazing thing about the internet is being able to share your ideas in hopes that it may inspire someone else. Whether it is inspiring them in cooking, organizing, or even DECORATING!
Well, I couldn’t believe it when the awesome online store, One Kings Lane contacted me and asked me to share my ideas on how I like to mix vintage finds with more modern ones. They are a fantastic store that have sales on one of a kind finds. They and I, both, are loving this style right now.
I absolutely LOVE these old army boxes that my Dad brought me a couple of weeks ago. Not only are they cool, but they tell a story. I love to imagine who it was who used these boxes and what their life was like at the time.
I decided to stack them on top of each other and use them as a bedside table, since I was needing one in my spare bedroom.
I decided to pair them with a modern style lamp and vintage pictures of my Mom and Dad. By the way, I think that is a great way to show guests they are important!
When a guest is visiting you and you have pictures of them, try placing them in the room that they are staying in. It personalizes their room and I bet they will get a kick out of it!
I happened to have this old vintage picture of my Dad as a young boy,
and this one of my Mom with her beloved cocker spaniel when she was a child. They really appreciated the gesture when they visited.
You also probably remember the lockers that Z brought home from a job that we painted and used in the entry way. They are still a “work in progress” , but they are just so cool and because of that we used them in the rest of the house as well.
We recently purchased the coolest light that has a vintage look to it to go above the lockers.
The pendant lights over the kitchen bar add to the vintage/modern design we love.
Of course, little man had to have a “superhero” red one……
and the girls’ got blue and purple ones.
I picked up this vintage sign at a flea market shop down on Ocracoke Island several years ago and it has had a spot on my wall ever since.
I bought these plates at the State flea market in Raleigh 5 years ago.
They are an unexpected piece of art placed on the wall next to modern style office accessories.
I have had this milk jug forever. I love these things. If I ever come across them, it is so hard to pass them up. I think they add such great character to any room and are great conversation pieces.
If you aren’t really sure about what category your style falls into, One Kings Lane has a great new feature they are offering to help you figure that out. It’s called their Home Decor’ Resource and you should definitely check it out!
I personally think I fall into a lot of different categories. I love so many styles! Don’t be afraid to explore and check out all the great deals they offer too!
Speaking of deals, I just fell in love with this drink dispenser! Those who know me well, know I LOVE a cool looking drink dispenser! I’ll be back in a little while! Got to go check out! 😉
