EXTRAORDINARY Ideas: For the Home

I am going to be completely selfish and share with you today my kind of style...
All of these ideas and projects came from this week's link party, so I have to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your talent... YOU TRULY INSPIRE ME!

~ SO Old... SO New... ~

 I am going to start with this incredible piece of art from  It's Just Me.
What is here not to love?
The stamping on this table is incredibly well done...

and the EXTREME distressing makes my heart beat to the rhythm of greatness...
So old... so new... so me...


Another "stamped project" were these fantastic  pillows...
by Candace Creations
I am amazed by the technique she used and grateful for the great tutorial...
These pillows bring me memories of my childhood, of my grandfather's boat,
of his little village... Love it so much!




Now these two nesting tables from The Quaint Cottage are not just ADORABLE but
HANDMADE... I am talking here about measuring, cutting and nailing wood to make the tables even before painting and distressing... My favorite part is that she shared how to make them...Thank YOU SO MUCH!
They look fabulous....


-Vintage and RETRO-
This is another style that I love... perhaps one of my favorites for decor.
I love the bold shapes, the whimsical feeling of it, the striking contrast of colors...
OK... back to the party....


If you follow me you know I have something about mugs...
You have to see these ones by Alyssa from Live Love Craft
I love the mustache-lips combination.  They make me so happy!
{you'll find her tutorial on Sweet Lemonayde}



Another SUPER RETRO project this week was this Tiered Records Display from
I think this would look stupendous in any media room...
Coke, peanuts, Elvis... anyone?
RETROLICIOUS!



This bedroom makeover by Jilly and Mia  is in my opinion perfection.
As an interior designer I have to say this is an A+ project.
Let me start with THE dresser... I won't rest until I find a dresser like hers to put
my hands on for my son's bedroom. I adore the robe idea for the handles and the casters on the bottom of the dresser...


 ...and the old vintage  headboard... against the super modern stenciled walls makes me almost cry of happiness...
GOSH, you have talent!



Here is my last  PERFECT example of retro meets vintage...
CHECK OUT THIS PINKALICIOUS CLOSET!
