Get It Together: Kitchenette with Green Details

Let’s face it – no matter how warm and inviting your living room or dining room, guests always seem to congregate in the kitchen, which is why it’s important to put together a cozy, welcoming space, like this mini model with fresh green details. This would be the perfect place to convene in the morning over a pot of coffee and some homemade biscuits.

Armchair Junking: Enamelware Round Up

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.

5) Another unique color is the teal edge on these enamelware mixing bowls and saucepan.

6) Finally, it’s easy to imagine this navy blue trim enamelware coffee pot filled with wildflowers.


As mentioned, here’s that chat lunatique – Ada.  Can you see the crazy in those eyes?

Armchair Junking: Vintage Clock Round Up

Armchair Junking: Vintage Clock Round Up

I ran across this photo on Design is Mine a couple weeks ago, and just loved the idea of a wall of vintage schoolhouse clocks in a kitchen. My kitchen, in fact, has a perfect blank wall just waiting for this kind of collection. I tend to think a gallery wall can benefit from some kind of color scheme, so this week, I’m rounding up my favorite retro wall clocks on etsy – color palette is blues and yellows.

1) This clock combines such a cool retro font and a fun color to make a splash in a wall collection.

2) I love the playful shape and the hip mid-century vibe.

3) So kitchy it’s cute!

4) Pretty and feminine yellow detailing.

5) This one has a great schoolhouse rock feel to it.

6) And a cute little cuckoo clock to round out the collection.

What kind of collections do you have on display? Would you try a wall of clocks? Chime in with your favorite ideas!
