Color Pop Trinket Box

DIY Color Pop Trinket Box | {Home-ology} modern vintage

Get the Look Of High End Design With a DIY Painted Box – The new accent color in our bedroom is inspired by the beautiful coral + gold design painting I picked up at a thrift sale several weeks ago. (I still can’t believe I almost left this piece of gorgeous behind.) And I love that it’s bringing in a slightly feminine feel since I tend to lean to the masculine side. This little bit of softness is a nice balance to all the straight lines I’ve got going on elsewhere.

DIY Abstract Gold Leaf Vase

Create a modern design using thrift store glass | {Home-ology } modern vintage

DIY Abstract Gold Leaf Vase – When I brought this wall art home with me a few weeks ago I knew I was going to have to create a little color cohesiveness wherever this piece landed because, as I lament, my interior is basically neutral from top to bottom. It’s something I’m gradually changing as the right pieces come along, and this art is the starting point for my bedroom.

Coral + Gold Design

Designing with coral + gold | {Home-ology} modern vintage

Coral + Gold Design – A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the Flea Market at the United Methodists Children’s Home in Atlanta. It was just me and two gloriously large buildings filled to the brim with discarded treasures. I wanted to bring it all home but refrained, taking with me only one very special item – this piece of coral + gold contemporary art for $25:

3 Minute Lemon-Lime Citrus Glaze

Quick + Easy Lemon-Lime Citrus Glaze | {Home-ology} modern vintage

A 3 Minute Lemon-Lime Citrus Glaze is how I like to do sweets in the summer – mostly because I’m a lazy cook and don’t like to hang in the kitchen in 90 degree weather. But even better than that is the amazing layer of flavor this glaze adds to just about any dessert. The zesty tang of lemons and limes glazed over a sweet cake is pure bliss. And on a lazy Sunday morning, it does wonders to a stack of fresh berry waffles.

Wabi Sabi Mounted Staghorn Fern

Make a wabi sabi fern garden | {Home-ology} modern vintage

Wabi Sabi Mounted Staghorn Fern –  Do you guys remember the Kokedama string garden I made last week with my staghorn fern? That pot actually contained two ferns which gave me the perfect opportunity to “pot” the second plant in a slightly more traditional way – as a mounted fern. I did say “slightly” traditional, because I mounted this little fellow to a stump rather than to a hanging board. It’s a bit wabi sabi, and I love it even more because it encompasses the beauty of the imperfect, the incomplete, and the decayed.

Modern Vintage Boy’s Nursery on a Budget

Modern vintage boy’s nursery on a budget –  You’ve all heard me gush about the two new babies that were added to our growing clan this spring. It’s been such crazy fun welcoming them to the world. But let me tell you, those little persons are way more work than I care to remember. All I can say is God bless those mammas + daddys and pleeeeeze give them lots of patience (and coffee). But on the flip side, they’re young and haven’t yet been worn down by the boundless energy of a toddler only to be left with little mind or memory. And with these two little ones being only seven weeks apart (and in different time zones), my schedule has been more than full and my brain cells are at capacity. Apparently so much so that I completely forgot to show you the modern vintage boy’s nursery on a budget. See? Dementia. But when a plan comes together as well as this one did, it would be a sin to not show it off. The space turned out so beautifully.
