Vintage kitchen

…with a touch of soft mint! I’m totally obsessed with the cabinet which is as vintage and as gorgeous as you can imagine! Add a few vintage stools and you get the perfect kitchen which is both inviting and cool. Open shelving, industrial old lighting – the moment when a picture is worth a thousand words :)

I’m loving the overall look of this kitchen – right up my alley!

California vintage home

When I saw this home my heart skipped a bit, it was a feeling one has when seeing ‘the one’, whether person, home, couch or things like that. It’s light, cozy, modern yet vintage and it has lots and lots of adorable colors and patterns. It felt like the one for me, because I could easily see myself living there, cooking in a mint kitchen, seating on coral vintage dining chairs or just hanging out in a living room with an awesome rug! What’s your say: yay or nay for vintage homes?

Wood and baby blue

So we’re back again – hello, Monday! As much as I wish the weekend would last longer, I’m well aware this won’t happen (not this week, at least – might happen next week as I’m having my vacation!). To kick off this week I decided write about something that will brighten my days a bit (with all the rain we’ve had for the past 10 days), so some breezy baby blue will do the trick. Even more when this color is perfectly (and unexpectedly) stylized with wood and some pretty vintage details. And what can be better than vintage, right?

Vintage love: The gingham owl

Hi all and happy Friday! Sorry for posting so late today, you know – busy Friday :). And while I was thinking what to post to make you happy I figured I would put together a few things we all love – vintage kitchenware, Etsy, good product photography and not least – owls! You do love them, right? Just recently I felt a huge and warm love for the pretty creatures (that I once considered frightening) and well, I found a shop that has it all: The gingham owl! That place is to die for! Not only the vintage items are swoon-worthy, but also on every picture you can see a different owl, not on sale – simply because they’re pretty cool:

Brass is the new black?

TGIF! We made it, let’s get some applause, shall we? For a Friday post I chose a topic that I believe we’ll see a lot this year and this is brass. I’ve heard many predictions for brass and they all conclude that 2011 will be full of it. The reason I can think of is its timelessness and its always stunning look in a room. Brass items that have on them time’s stamp (also known as vintage) never looked better than when seen in a modern home, with eclectic touches. Its subtle glitz always brings a feeling of glamour to a space, so I believe brass would work perfectly in ANY home, no matter the style. Of course, it’s all about your personality, that’s why I ask you – do you love or hate brass?

Caramel, stripes, industrial, modern

I know that the title might be a bit confusing, but you’ll understand what I meant. Seems to me that industrial oriented designs will never fade, there’ll always be someone who’ll dig metal coffee tables and lamps, worn off storage drawers and things like this which are absolutely charming, in my opinion. Even more when you go with vintage thrifted furniture and accessories – that’s a bomb of a combination. However, I’m thinking that perhaps a few feminine details won’t hurt? Something like a caramel sofa or a cozy blanket. Well, the possibilities are unlimited and it’s just up to you how to decorate your home. Here’s a picture which inspired me to no end! I bet you’ll understand why :)

{Modern} Vintage storage space

Who doesn’t need storage space in their life? I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many drawers and closets. Even better if they’re some vintage deliciousness a-la-post-office-storage, right? Somehow they are SO charming and look so pretty in a room, I’d say it’s an unexpectedly modern item, totally vintage inspired though. Complicated, but well, you get the point.

Home Tour: 1970′s villa

Hi everyone! The other day I came across a 1970′s villa tour and I couldn’t help, but post it here (I’m sure there’ll be lots of you who’ll love it, just like me). You’ll ask why? Here are hints: Scandinavian, washed out colors, plenty of white and pops of bright shades. Oh and stunning artwork! There’s a vintage-y modern vibe injected in those rooms which are enchanting! The home belongs to Marie and Bill and their two children. And I suggest you to read the entire post, I was impressed, to say the least. You all know my love for everything Scandinavian and am seriously thinking my home (you know, the dream home I’ll someday own :D) will be exactly like the one I’m showing you in this post, the below pictures are undoubtedly landing in my inspiration folder. What about you? How your dream home looks like?

Tolix (chair & stool) crush

Hello everyone! Good morning and welcome to a new week. Taking another break from Serbian Made, but this doesn’t mean the post I have prepared for you is less inspiring and fabulous. But first of all tell me how are you all, how was your weekend? Did you have snow yet (they say we’ll have snow at the end of this week, so I guess I’m excited about it…or not?).

So you know how big sucker I am for chairs and stools, right? What happens when some killer chairs and stools are galvanized, with a worn industrial look which feel like a breath of fresh air (paradoxical?!) in a modern, country or any other style? I’ll tell you what happens – my new crush: Tolix chairs and stools! I’ve been having my eyes on them for awhile and just find them utterly attractive and charming! Their rough look speaks about the unique style, very contemporary and style-friendly aesthetics of the owner. They look gorgeous in ANY room, seriously! Take a look:

Wooden dream in Southern Spain

Hello, everyone! It’s Monday and it’s 1st of November, which means a new start of the week AND of the month! Can you believe it’s already November? So, the traditional Serbian Monday is off today (the article about another Serbian artist is postponed until next week due to a few complications), so I have for you today a delightful home tour. You saw that lately I’ve been very enamored with the warmth of a wooden home, paired with crispy white walls and bright popping details everywhere, so this home in Southern Spain is my dream home, people! The very first second I saw it, it took my breath away and just made my heart skip a beat! The home brings warmth, a home-y atmosphere and the perfect feeling for a happy life! The thrifted vintage accessories add a bohemian touch, to only increase the level of charm! Here are some pictures:
