Going Vintage

You never know what you’ll find at a local flea market, garage sale, antique store, or even online to make going vintage in your apartment decor a fun experience. I came across this cute chest of drawers and found the coolest DIY article on how Jenny Komenda Interiors refinished a less than grand find on Craig’s list and turned it into this cool green dresser.

Cool sideboard with vintage appeal. Found here.

Ah, Grandma’s kitchen. Love the 1950s style table and chairs. This color is so cool. Found at Bright’s Antique World.

Not to forget your vintage look on the patio, so in style now. Find it here.

Ah, everything vintage and turquoise…so summer love…

Vintage Apartment Looks

Creating great vintage apartment looks can be as easy as picking up a few pieces of cool furniture at a garage sale, antique flea market, or from a nice vintage website. And don’t forget you old Aunt Annie, or grandma’s attic either. Chances are the ole relatives will be more than happy to get rid of some of the extra junk up there (I mean vintage treasures, but surely tell her that it’s just old junk!). Unless she’s a horder, then you may have to bargain with the old aunt.

Sanding down and refinishing an old piece from the 60s can give your room a whole new vintage look. New Vintage…now that’s a thought. Wonder if there’s a website called that already? In any case, here a few more great vintage apartment looks that I’ve come across this week. Link me some of your own if you have the time.

Pink refridgerator! I’m in love!

On the masculine side, a great vintage apartment look.

A lovely and relaxing vintage apartment look for the bedroom.

Hope you  enjoyed. Have a great weekend all!

Uniquely Created

I found this incredibly clever company called Recreate that uses discarded pieces of junk to create some unique items of furniture, lighting and accessories. The company was created by Katie Thompson. The interesting and functional repurposed furnishings give new meaning to the words “Don’t throw anything away!” Check out Recreate just for the fun of it!

The Glamour of Tiled Bathrooms

The Glamour of tiled bathrooms is coming back, in a big way.

You may find the perfect apartment, perhaps in an old Victorian house, and love all the special vintage details like glass door knobs, hard wood floors, mantles, sconces – all possibilities, and what’s more you might find a tiled kitchen or bathroom. Some of these old tiled baths can be tricky to adjust to in appearance. But with some progressive and modern design appeal, a vintage bathroom can be quite glamorous.

Here and below photos feature subway tiles. Simple and classic and easy to clean.

I absolutely love the color choices here, masculine and feminine and very chic. Just because the tile is black and white doesn’t mean the entire bathroom has to be. Hope the ideas presented here will give you some design options for the glamour of tiled bathrooms. All images via Apartment Therapy.
