This is my final Living Room post for transitioning into summer. I've pared down, and added bits of modern with my vintage thrift store finds.
All the items on the vintage trunk above are thrift store finds, except for the reindeer moss!
The trunk serves as a coffee table as well as holding a TON of off-season decor items.
For spring/summer, I've focused on whites, pale grays, beiges and tucked the bronze, rusty metal and darker grays into the chest and primitive cabinet.
The shelving that flanks the fireplace is another place I've
tried to work the modern in with the vintage. I already had some of it going on with small modern art pieces hanging on the wall.
I placed a pretty glass vase in the front window next to a vintage brass lamp that was painted to look like an antique finial.
A small side table holds yet another mod, simple vase, a faux vintage frame with "antique" mirror made with Krylon Looking Glass paint. Another vintage brass lamp painted in silver sits on a stack of vintage books.
Though I am enjoying incorporating some clean, modern shapes into my living room, my true love is the vintage, rusty, chippy items with patina. If I had to choose one over the other, old stuff wins over new.
But thankfully, there are times when new is best.
Word for the Day:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning;
