Vintage Inspiration #100 Salvage Dior

Neutrals, organic, seawashed, time worn, comfortable, vintage, classic... these are just a few words that come to mind when I try to describe her style. But most important, she is just as beautiful on the inside, as she is on the outside.

Meet Kate from Salvage Dior




Kate has a way with home vignettes and shop displays that looks so easy, but those of us who have had antique mall spaces, know that there is an art to it. Her shop looks like her home, and I think that's because she only sells the things she truly loves. She has a soft neutral palette and she works within it to achieve her beautiful design aesthetic.










Last week, Kate shared her painting technique,
and shows us how she creates some of her most beautiful pieces.



I hope you'll drop by Kate's, and get to know her if you haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting her. And see for yourself her spaces at Country Roads Antiques. You'll want to move right in!


Beautiful Kate with her charming and talented husband.


Thanks Kate!

Here's more inspiration from last week:


Simplifying the Keeping Room at




took on a huge challenge in repainting this amazing hutch.



Lynn from Shabby Story never disappoints with her wonderful use of vintage pieces, here with a pop of gorgeous aqua blue. And I'm totally in love with this amazing Gothic window backed with burlap.




and Tales From an OC Cottage always delights
 with whimsical and artistic creations.

Tea anyone...?
