Hey Nashville...some things on Craigslist!


Click {here} for the listing on this mod glass coffee table...perfect especially for smaller living rooms...or a traditional room in which you need to add a "twist" to it!

It is a "make me an offer" listing...so price is unlisted...but it could be a great buy!



...now I don't buy used upholstered furniture to use "as is" (I will have it re-upholstered and will never re-sell unless it is re-upholstered) ... since I don't know where it has been....but this fabric pattern is quite intriguing to me...and at $40.00 this sofa has a great line to it...and at this low price you can easily have it re-upholstered!

Click {here} for the listing...


Happy Saturday!

...on the left are 2 larger pieces of vintage glassware...one etched and one more modern in style!


...and a beautiful old gilded mirror!


Happy Friday!

Inspired...

...found these pics on I Suwannee (just love her style)...she had posted these of the Lilly Pulitzer's new home line at High Point....



Now...if you know me...you know that I do wear Lilly from time to time...one of my favorite lines due to how it fits me and the cheery and happy colors and patterns!

...for the same reason...I am in love with the home furniture/decor line!

....fun pillows and artwork 



...and lacquered furniture reminiscent of vintage pieces!


...the glossy white faux bamboo bed, glossy pink lamps on 1960's mod side tables...and that rug is the best!






...just love this colorful look that harkens back to a classic vintage feel!

Happy Tuesday!

Art!


Coco & Kelly had a wonderful post on Sixx Design last week...


Click {here} for the interview

I just love Robert & Cortney's collected and colorful look!

Also...they give some wonderful advice on design in the interview.

The above picture stood out to me (with the quote) especially after my husband and I attended
the benefit gala for Nashville's art museum on Saturday night with some wonderful friends...


The current exhibit is "The Birth of Impressionism"...
and reminded me of my love of Monet's work and the early Impressionism movement in general.
This interest in Impressionism started when I was young...while touring art museums on my family vacations.


My father noticed this and for Christmas and birthday presents he gave me books, calendars and prints representing the early Impressionist movement...while I was growing up.



...so it was so nice to see this exhibit on Saturday...I guess it made me smile as it reminded me of my love of art and where it all began.


Happy Monday!
