Vintage Mix

I love the idea of sipping iced tea in these vintage round back chairs on a lanai or garden room.

A great design always has a little vintage in the mix. It's all about mixing the new with the old and the traditional with the modern to create a nice balance. It may be as simple as adding a pair of antique Asian lamps or a great mid-century modern chair. As long as you feel the piece is special and it makes you smile find a way to incorporate it into your space. Sometimes I can design an entire room starting with a single piece of furniture for inspiration. Find that piece that inspires you and just go with it. ~xo~ Annie

Add a unique lamp such as this antique porcelain lamp to create interest or conversation in a room.

Bring in some mid-century wall art such as this gold metal floral peice to add a vintage gold accent above a sofa or credenza.

This vintage lattice credenza from 1stdibs.com is a great peice to design an entire room around.

I can see Don Draper lounging in this rattan chair on one of his L.A. visits.

A mirror such as this gold sunburst makes a perfect vintage accent.

Vintage barware like these 1960's lowball glasses are a fun and affordable way to add that retro touch.

I always love a pop of red and a vintage pop of red is even better like this metal dining table in a breakfast nook.
