Mid-Century Modern Mix & Match Style Challenge with Chairish

Mid-Century Modern. It’s everywhere you look these days. Mad Men, The Daily Show, even the April issue of Elle Décor predominantly features Mid-Century Modern furniture. Knoll, Thonet, Jens Risom, Bertoia, Saarinen, and I’m sure most of you know Eames just to name a few. Classic designers inspired by clean lines. All from the 1950s, and in vogue now. But how do you get your hands on these gems? Well, I used to spend hours upon hours scouring Craigslist, eBay, flea markets and estate sales. More often then not, it was a bust. Now days, the answer for me is Chairish.com. They make it fun and easy to buy vintage furniture, and gloriously curated.

As you already now, I’m a huge Chairish Instagram Sale fan, recently they asked me to participate in their Mix & Match Style Challenge. I danced with glee jumped at the opportunity. A chance to shop Chairish and create an inspirational Mid-Century Modern space that I would be dreaming about for years to come? Ummm, challenge accepted!

I Heart Chairish Instagram Sales

Today is not just Tuesday, it’s one of those super exciting, special days for me. Today I’m being interviewed on Chairish. They are asking me all sorts of questions about the items I purchased on one of their Chairish Instagram Sales and how I styled the pieces in my home. Woah! Slow down. How did this happen you ask? Well, here’s the back story, but be sure to hop on over to Chairish to read the interview and view all the styled items to get the real vintage fix. I swear, I’ve been so excited to show them off. So please, go check it out.

Back in January, you might remember I was talking about Alt Summit. And while Grace and I stood in line at the airport, waiting for a taxi to the hotel, a woman behind us asked if she could share a ride. (I want to say it’s because I looked like a fancy blogger, but it’s probably because she heard us say Grand America Hotel where all the bloggers were staying. I’m going with the whole fancy blogger bit for now.) Anyhoo, I wanted to say yes, but I glanced at my luggage and then at Grace’s, and then at hers, oh boy. We didn’t travel light that particular week. I said, “For sure! That is if we can all fit.” Yikes!

We managed to snag a minivan, and the three of us were off to the hotel. She politely asked us if we were bloggers and we gave her a, “Ya, how’d you guess”, kinda ho-hum reply. She laughed. Turned out she worked for Chairish – only like my favorite online shopping resource for vintage goods! OMG! I squealed on the inside but tried to remain calm on the outside.

10 under $100 – bargain buys

the boy always tells me i have champagne taste and yes, i will agree…it’s been that way since i was a kid. my mom would always tell me, “no one is going to know if you have $20 jeans or $200 jeans unless someone looks at the tag on your behind.” i beg to differ. while watching hgtv the other day, the host said, “with a little DIY, you’d never know this table was only $20.” ummm, yes. yes, i would…and the boy’s response to that was, “well that’s because you’re a snarky bitch momma.” bahahahahaha…this is also true (and he says that with love). but just because i have champagne taste, doesn’t mean i don’t have a budget.

so let’s do a little budget friendly shopping, shall we?
