Let’s Look At: The Windsor Chair

February 20th, 2014

Windsor chairs are a historic style (first made in the 1700′s) that still are popular today.  But not just in country style homes, there are so many modern interpretations not only from current furniture makers but also from the 50′s and 60′s. These chairs offer clean lines and work with a variety of dining tables and decor.  Let’s take a look at some room utilizing this long-standing style:

Modern meets traditional:

I love this traditional country room because it has such simplicity that it sneaks into modern territory:

Light grey painted chairs are subtle and classic:

I love these two rooms- one employing more classic chairs within a modern room and another (right) with more modern lines all around.

I love the spindles of these modern Windsor chairs with a sleek Parson’s table and patterned rug.

The Delightful Emily McDowell

February 19th, 2014

I still love sending people real cards, not just e-mails. It’s kind of a “thing” in my family to try to find each other the funniest cards possible, and I can spend a good hour at a card shop laughing until I cry or trying to pick out the prettiest, most amazing $7 card possible.  So when I run into a source like Emily McDowell I have to share.  She combines humor and beautiful art and her work just makes me smile.  And when it’s snowing for the 4,567,908th time this winter you need to find ways to smile (when not perusing real estate in sunnier climates as a form of self-torture).  Enjoy. And shop her Etsy site too.

This one could not be more true…

I wish I had found this in time to give to Andrew for Valentine’s Day, because it’s SO true. Especially this year.

TOO GOOD. Especially the one at right.

Feminine Touch.

February 17th, 2014

A while back I showed you the nursery (check it again- so good) of Bijou & Boheme blogger Christine Dovey, and now we get to see MORE of her amazing home thanks to Style Me Pretty Living.  Her space is such a great mix of vintage and modern, whimsical and bad-ass. I’m not sure I could get this much pink by my husband, but I adore the feminine touch in a lot of these images.

I mean, woah. That is some amazing lighting and I adore the mix of modern chairs and table with the vintage fixtures and traditional wallpaper panels.
