Mid Century Home Decor at Target

While waltzing thru Target the other day, I found bread, bananas, yogurt, Windex, affordable Mid Century home decor…wait what??? Not sure about you, but every time I make a Target pit stop, I always take a gander thru the home goods section, and I gotta say, their Mid Century home decor is on point! Seriously, they’ve really taken it to another level. Consider yourself warned, and proceed with caution.

The Seattle Showhouse

While attending Alt Summit, I received an email from Decorist asking if I could join them in the reveal of the Seattle Showhouse furnished by ATGstores.com and installation by Porch. I think I had a look of sheer panic on my face. I mean, I was in Salt Lake City all week for Alt, and now possibly Seattle the following week? The Boy might not be pleased. But he knows I adore Decorist, and this also meant I could finally meet interior designer extraordinaire, Ashley Redmond…if you remember, she’s the creative soul who helped me turn my guest bedroom from meh to huzzah! The Boy thankfully answered, “Of course! Why not!?!?!” and a Snoopy dance ensued. Eeeeeeek! Seattle Showhouse here I come!

Decorating with Vintage Home Decor

Decorating with vintage home decor really shows off your personality…not to mention it can be easy on the wallet. But there’s a fine line between staying in the now and time warping. So how do you find that trending boho slash mid century modern look and not have Marsha screaming, “Oh! My nose!”

Marsha Brady Oh My nose!

Easy, you must learn hot to mix old and new…vintage with modern. There’s no need to smash someone upside the head with vintage overload. But to find a good balance, you must have patience, a good eye, and a lot of trial and error. Not sure where to start? Confused? Don’t fret little one. We’re going to look at a few of my favorite Pinterest rooms (I strongly recommend following), and I’m going to tell you where you can find and source all the key home decor pieces. I’m all about making it easy.

I Make Emily Henderson Cry…or do I?

Dear Emily,

A couple months ago you some how came across my blog and read an I Make Emily Henderson Cry post. I about fell out of my chair when you wrote on my Facebook page. I do hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Since watching Secrets From A Stylist (please bring it back, I need you in my living room…but not in a creepy kinda way), I’ve learned so much about my style and how to create vignettes. I still haven’t mastered the art of mixing and matching pillows, but I swear I’m practicing.

Reading your blog and watching your videos…girl, you are a wealth of knowledge that people like me value, adore, and cherish. It’s like you’ve created your very own little army of eclectic style mixing wanna be designers. Because of you, I had the confidence to start this master bedroom makeover and know it would wind up magazine worthy. And for that, I thank you. So if you’re reading this, I hope you see how you’ve inspired me. From velvet navy headboards to brass sconces to mix and matched furniture. Mid-Century Modern with a little bit of granny as you call it. Wipe those sweet salty tears of sadness away and come out from hiding in the closet because girl, I’m about to blow your mind…I hope, fingers crossed.

There’s been some chatter…mostly started by myself…of a super secret amazingly stupendous master bedroom makeover project. Yep, it was on track for a very cool feature in a very cool magazine, but, weird shit happens sometimes and whomp, whomp, whomp, I think that game is over. It’s okay though, I’m over it…not really. Insert laughing so hard I’m crying emojis here. I still have what will soon be one dreamy little spot to lay my pretty head. That is, pending a gorgeous rug’s arrival from India, a painter who has been perpetually busy and a DIY. Note to self, stop slamming the painter get on that DIY already. Oh, and some wall art above my bed.

Because the space is not finalized (the main feature is the rug), this post is not a complete reveal (sad face), but I promise to share more then just a one picture sneak peek. I’ll also be sharing with you how everything came together, and who helped me make my master bedroom makeover happen.

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!
