Sometimes when I have doubts about the red accents in my kitchen, rooms like the one above from Country Living rebuild my confidence. Strip away the personal touches, and you’re left with a showroom kitchen. But as an apartment dweller, it’s important to be able to add vintage touches to any space without changing the fixtures – like these new, bright white kitchen cabinets.
What we haven’t mentioned about our amazing and successful junking trip to Maryland is what we found in Frederick and at the DC Big Flea! You may recognize some of these great finds from Katie and Rags’ upstairs and downstairs house tours too since we quickly integrated Katie’s finds into her decor.
Here’s a lovely close-up of Nipper, the RCA dog, one of Katie’s many dog decor finds.
Katie bought this ironstone pitcher and basin to top off her upstairs hallway table and added a few vintage spools to her built-in shelves in the living room. Erika and I each bought a wooden spool that make unique paper towel holders for the kitchen!
I love vintage enamelware for its rustic durability, bright colors, and crisp whites, so I couldn’t have been more excited I was given this sign a Valentine’s Day gift! “Attention Chat Lunatique” definitely applies around here. Three crazy cats live in our apartment, it’s just that two of them are in human form.
I did this chalk drawing of Ada before the original “cat party” – a cocktail party to celebrate when we moved in 2 1/2 years ago. I decided that my new sign belongs near the entrance to our apartment below the chalkboard.
This week, let’s look at other fantastic enamelware finds for the perfect collection.
1) Green trim seems unique in a world of black and navy, so I love this enamelware baking pan.
2) I’d love to wash fresh summer berries in this navy blue trim enamelware colander with a handle.
3) This cobalt blue trim enamelware dining set contains soup bowl/deep plates, two mugs, a small plate and a covered tureen would be a great set for glamping (glamorous camping).
4) This red trim enamelware basin would be a great fruit bowl or serving dish.
