Designing with Vintage

Designing a new build, or renovating an existing home or space I always love to create something unique. I am always on the hunt for that perfect one of a kind piece that I can feature in a space. It immediately adds warmth and character and a sense of nostalgia.

I found this tall set of European Antique doors, fell in love with them but there was just one problem the height was 11’. They were scaled down and the transom adjusted to fit at 10’ and new glass was put in. I needed an impressive entry to the two master suites. I loved the patina and kept it in tact. A replica of the original hand carved detail was made for the bottom panel of the doors (the original had cracked and was fragile).

Loving the grand entry doors they had the French farm house feel I needed...I was inspired to have the interior doors replicated to match of solid Alder, heavy and substantial. Complete with vintage ball bearing hinges. They creek like old doors and are great for scaring the little guests!

My Design tip: Defining the architectural style is important; it keeps you focused when you’re searching for Vintage elements for your projects.

You can see the original space before... A lovely transformation from 1970’s Mediterranean to French Farm House!

 

Have a beautiful Saturday...I Hope you find something vintage over the weekend!

Brown Transferware

Brown Transferware...a decorative technique using transfer printing developed in England in the mid-18th century.

This is one of my favorite vintage brown tansferware platters. I love adding to my collection...Hunting for these vintage pieces is fun, if I’m lucky I’ll spot a great piece on a table full of dishes!

 

 

 

I’m right at home with pairing the Brown pieces with my vintage silver flatware. I love them together, particularly for entertaining outdoors in Autumn...its my true Casual loves elegance!

Have a beautiful weekend, hope you spot a vintage treasure to add to your collection ....or be inspired to start a new one!

White Vintage and Vintage Garden House

Playing in the Dirt

 

 

I love how Gail Peterson puts her Blog Posts together at Casual Loves Elegance.  It comes from her heart. She is renovating her 1970's Mediterranean home in San Diego. She carefully hand selects each and every piece she finds when out and about on her treasure hunting days. All photo's have been taken by her, she has a great eye.

Enjoy this beautiful Garden House and her vintage tractor that sits as a prop in her lemon and orange grove.

Good Mornin Darlins

I hope your Weekend is be fabulous!

My family LOVE LOVE LOVES their fresh squeezed liquid sunshine, we call it!

Our grove has a few orange trees, clementines and other fruits. We also have our new grove of over 120 lemon trees...
We just had our 4th pick! I get so excited to know someone will be slicing one of our lemons for their sweet tee!

Oh... by the way they are in bloom, when you approach our gates the fragrance is in intoxicating... I would love to do a scented post!!!! {hmm....will get my techie mind wrapped around it and will invent it soon} Yeah Heehee!

Any whoo... FYI this is what I figured it takes our morning to make OJ...

12 medium oranges to equal a 16 oz glass... I usually juice about 24 to 30 oranges a day for my family! We have a fabulous industrial sort of juicer we have had for-ev-er!

Cheers to your morning....let this fill you with California fresh squeezed liquid Sunshine and a HUG!!
