Where to Shop: Circa Who

If Josh and I lived in Palm Beach I would say pretty much everything for our home would be from Circa Who.  They have the the coolest vintage pieces that you would want to design entire rooms around.  I was just cruising through their website and was wanting EVERYTHING.

This is furniture design at its best. I wish this were mine.

A couple pics from 45 Three

After work today I popped into 45 Three on Fairfax (south of Wilshire Blvd. for those LA peeps) and of course they had great stuff, but nothing that’s on my list that I’m currently needing for my new digs.

If you live in the area you should totally stop in there.  They are having a sale and there are some really great pieces.

Here’s a few snaps I took.

Prepping for a holiday party!

I spent a good part of the weekend prepping for my holiday party that I am having on the 17th.  I am pretty excited!

I’m going to try to post up my prep process as much as possible, so just to give you a messy sneak peak – I pulled out the leaf for my dining room table (there will be a table cloth) and scattered out my serving pieces to see how the buffet is going to all lay out.  It’s a good idea to lay out your serving pieces in advance to see what you are missing,  so that the day before your guests you aren’t running around like crazy looking for things.

My serving pieces are a combination that I think works really well.  The pair of three-tiered cake stands are from Bed Bath and Beyond that my mom found for me!  Sooo good, right?! (Thanks Ma!).

The white flat pieces are from Home Goods/TJ Maxx, and the white milk glass is all vintage pieces that I have been collecting from flea markets and antique malls.

I’ll be posting a lot more about the preparation for the party (decor, flowers, food, fashion….) – but here is a start!

Jadeite Love

I’ve been a fan of vintage milkglass for quite some time, but a recent spread in Martha Stewart has broadened my horizons and now I’m a huge fan.  Jadeite was really popular in the 50′s, and manufacturers like Fire King,  Jeannette, and McKee are the most desirable makers (if you are interested in collecting the good stuff).
Well…. My kitchen is my least favorite room in my home – and I think I’ve finally found the inspiration and direction the room is going to go in.  Here’s some great pics that hopefully will lead to my kitchen getting into great shape!

A beautiful collection o vintage jadeite and milk glass.

I love these two small jadeite dishes with the gold feet. Quite elegant.

I came across this mint green painted cabinet in an antique mall in Long Beach. I am loving this color more and more as I come across it in different settings.

This kitchen is absolutely gorgeous. It's the inspiration for my kitchen right now. Love. (image via here)

My foyer… WORK IN PROGRESS!!

I’ve been focused on my foyer and it’s still a work in progress but I wanted to share with you and get some feedback.

I knew I wanted a bit of a boho feel, and I knew I wanted a neutral color palette.  The walls were painted a dark gray, I really like it with the contrast of the white doors.  The final steps are to upholster the pair of benches and some accessories for the table.

So, here is where I got everything:  I ordered the Moroccan Wedding Blanket (used for the rug) at Calypso St. Barth.  The Parsons table and the pair of benches are from Casa Victoria in Silverlake.  They have the best vintage pieces!! The gilded haystack lamp was from a random vintage shop for $35!  I couldn’t believe my luck.   The large mirror is from Leslie’s in Long Beach.  That mirror is so heavy, hanging it was not fun.

The Parsons desk needs some accessory love…. I can’t even decide what to put on it, and I don’t want to put something that I don’t love, and the scale needs to be right.

The wicker chair is from Warehouse 1333 in Long Beach, another one of my absolute favorite places for vintage furniture.  It is extremely rare that I leave there empty handed.  I recovered the seat myself with gold fabric, and then the framed picture is a poster that I got in the South of France with my sister.

So, now let’s discuss the benches which desperately need attention.  I’ve been looking for inspiration high and low. I am thinking about doing either a dark teal or navy solid velvet on theem.  But then part of me wants more fun…  But, would that fight the Moroccan wedding blanket?

Here are a few pics that have been saved on my desk top.

I love these, but matching two prints to go with the parsons desk and the morroccan wedding blanket may be too tricky. Image via Good Bones Great Pieces

Animal print could be an option, or too much? Image via Bazaar of Serendipity

I love this pairing of fabrics.... I am just not sure if it will work in my space. image via Pinterest

Feedback would be amazing!! Would love your thoughts on what it needs, what works, what doesn’t…..

xoxo,

My new (old) necklace.

I’ve been really wanting a tassel charmed necklace — and I finally found a vintage one!  I absolute love it! And (shocker) I also found it at the Long Beach Flea Market.

Vintage Framing Find!

Several years ago my best friend gave me a cut-out silhouette picture of my dog, Lincoln.  It’s one of my favorite things I own.  Anyway… I broke the frame it came in and FINALLY found a fabulous frame for it!

So – the frame below is similar to what I found (for some reason I can’t find the pic I took of it when I got it at the Long Beach Flea Market) It cost $5. Yep…  That’s it.  And I had a piece of glass cut for $5.  So inexpensive.  I can’t tell you enough…. flea markets and antique fairs have the BEST frames – and so cheap!!!

Here’s the finished product and I LOVE it!!  Doesn’t Mr. Lincoln look good?

And for the real deal:

A Day at the LB Flea Market!

Last weekend was the Long Beach Flea Market – and of course – there were some beautiful pieces!  The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and the perfect day to be outside.  Here are some of the thigs that caught my eye.

A clean lined mid-century desk. Really great condition. I wouldn't even consider painting it.

Looking to do a gallery wall? A flea market is your best (and most budget friendly) option to finding a bunch of beautiful, vintage pieces of art to mix together.

Isn't this faucet awesome? I remember seeing a similar fixture in one of Kelly Wearstler's books.

A collection of beautiful purple glass bottles. I think these would be so pretty down the center of a dining table with rose buds in them as a low centerpiece for a dinner party.

Beautiful table lamps.

A great pair of slipper chairs. These would look fantastic recovered.

I always see gorgeous Suzanis at this flea market.

This dealer was pretty neat. They had beautiful pages from books all in different categories. There were butterflies, botanical images, fruits..... They really would be great lined up in a series.

Large glass candy jars. I especially like the jar on the right.

Chandeliers can get expensive both of these larger crystal chandeliers were priced at $150 each, which is a really good deal for the pink one (on the right).

Recap from the Long Beach Flea Market!

I missed the Long Beach Flea Market last month – so I went on Sunday and it was such a lovely day.  The weather was perfection.  I wasn’t really looking for anything in particular.  I did look at the clothes, which I never do, and got a couple of dresses and a sequin jacket!  So fun!

Here were some things thought that I really did like that caught my eye.

This pair of chairs had such a great shape. They need some serious upholstering, but i just loved the structure and the cut out shape. Wouldn't they be amazing in a solid with a contrast piping, or a herringone print?

This pair of gold headboards were awesome. I absolutely loved them, If they were for a queen bed, I would've considered them.

This set of Royal Dalton china was in amazing condition, and the pattern was stunning.

Toile lamps! Even though the original paint job was in excellent condition, a nice solid coat of glossy white and a chic lamp shade really would be amazing for this pair.

A really cute wicker cabinet. I'd also love to see this painted. It would be a great piece for a foyer.

I loved this white leaf/toile-ish candelier. Pretty fantastic!

Loved these bow sconces. Thought they were so sweet, and would be great in just the right space.

And now to be a little disturbed…  There was a dealer selling Missoni for Target at the flea market.  I was absolutely appauled!!  Excuse me for saying this – but, what a douche bag move.  The dealer actually had something I was interested in, but once I saw what he was charging for the Target for Missoni pieces, I walked away.

DISTURBING SIGHT AT THE LB FLEA MARKET!!

Besides that, it was a fantastic day!!
