So me!

This space is so me! I LOVE the black and white striped couch, the hot pink chairs the black ornate mirror, and the turquiose on the wall! Did I mention the built ins and the shiny black tile fireplace?
My sister commented on my apartment therapy post, and she said that my blog is "vintage glamorous so I don't need to have modern stuff". I forget sometimes that I don't have to have every style in my house that I like. I can appreciate other styles. I may still get modern chairs for my dining room but most likely I will get vintage chairs from Goodwill and paint them or something. The best part is that they will be way more affordable which is really important for us! I hope to find some soon but I don't want to stress finding them (lol I say that but I am totally wanting them, like yesterday).

I love the hot pink chairs. They wouldn't match out house, but maybe someday I'll have my own "me" room and I can do pink everything!! :)

I've been loving turquoise more and more! I love those built-ins on both side of the fireplace. That sofa is fun! I really need to get to a goodwill type shop near me too. I'd love to reupholster something too!

Your sister is right, but I know how it feels to want a piece of every style you like in the house. The nice thing about the way design has morphed over the years is that totally different styles used in the same home are now considered acceptable and encourage, not looked down upon.

I love this! It's so me too, what a great mix! I looked long and hard for my vintage chairs. Just think like "if you build it, they will come" Of course you're not building anything but you get the gist!

Maddy said...

At least you know what your style is, I'm still trying ot figure that out! I do love that tile fire place!!

Ari- Audrey Onassis said...

Ooh, turquoise! I was only brave enough to paint one wall in my living room turquoise, but gosh I love it.

this room does seem so you! embrace your wonderful style/taste. somehow, this room does have a modern feel to it though, not sure what. maybe the white accessories, trim and fireplace.

christine said...

I LOVE these colours!! If only I could be so bold... I'm more of a punches of colour kinda girl. But, it's photos like this that just might turn me over.

Happy Weekend, Leah!

Leah, this room needs to jump off of this post and into my living room! The black and white striped couch, the pink chairs, the turquoise wall. Oh, it's perfection. I want it and I don't care what my boyfriend says! :)
