What some people don’t know: this is not my first
DL and I have lived in four others—three of them right here in the greater W-S area.
Why? Mainly because we
are clinically insane like to fix up houses.
What some people don’t know: I have not always decorated
like Miss Marple in the cottage style.
I always let the house dictate the style. So far, I have lived in a Country Ranch, a Traditional Georgian, and an Old World house in the ‘burbs. Now, we’re back in a house similar to our first: a cottage. (And PS: this has always worked for us. We’ve always sold our houses within a few weeks of putting them on the market.)
But I have never lived in a Mid-Century Modern. We won’t, because DL says this is our last house. I say that if I want to move to Brooklyn and be the world’s oldest hipster, he should not dissuade me. But alas, I love DL and will not want to go without him.
So when the folks at Chairish asked me if I’d make an idea board using their barstools, I thought ‘Yay! Mid Century Modern!’ because I will never have it in real life.The Danish Modern barstools from Chairish were the jumping off point that includes a great retro sofa in gray (True Modern Luna from Wayfair), a vintage padded bar in black pleather (sold on an auction site—going price was $800), a zebra rug by Milliken (available LOTS of places) and some groovy Fiesta glassware (get these at Bed, Bath & Beyond!).
