It's been a while since I shared one of these mishmashed posts, so
Welcome to another edition of
Random Musings of a Wandering Mind...
I know that some of you approach it from a business and branding viewpoint. Some are seriously strict about what they Pin and whether or not it has high numbers. Not me, Pinterest in my view, is a way of expressing myself and an encyclopedia of inspiration for just about anything I might want to find. I don't care if only one other person has Pinned it, if it appeals to me then I may just start a completely new board for it's friends and companions.
Last week I got to thinking about upholstery fabric
and then I drifted down the rabbit hole of Men's Wear Suiting influences in decor.
I love a dark and moody study or den
about as much as I do a light, bright and airy
French-y Sunroom or Salon.
I guess that's both sides of the coin.
Seriously, I have a thing for big chairs, leather or fabric,
and a Chesterfield piece will start me hyperventilating.

I DO love me some Houndstooth and Herringbone
The larger print lends itself to a more modern vibe.
truly crazy, but I love it.
Great thing about black/white fabrics...
they go with any color.
Love it with the rusty-orange bed as an accent.
I love a warm and masculine bedroom
with menswear influences in bed linens and accessories.
Mixing tweeds and plaids is a comfortable English look that I love.
They also go well with some florals and prints in the same set of colors.
they also go well with dogs...
This is a bit too much contrast in one space for me,
but those chairs are amazing!
Interesting, but I don't think I would have used the fabric "as is".

Yesterday, my sister and I headed to one of our favorite places here in Springfield,
The Vintage Peddler, on East Trafficway near downtown.
It's the latest in vintage markets in the area
and Always interesting vendors and new merchandise.
If you love vintage decor with a masculine edge,
then this is a great place to visit.
good stuff for the gals, too.
I fell hard for this wonderful armoire.
I'm totally crazy for that "mushroom-y" greige paint color.
It would be perfect to house a tv in a bedroom or study.
And oh my, get a look at that clock next to it.
( sorry, this piece is sold)
nothing like a glamorous black sideboard
Almost that time of the year peeps.
...and speaking of Valentines for your favorite "guy",
this just might be that one-of-a-kind gift you're looking for!
(or maybe that's just the attitude he gives you when he comes home from work...)
Pretty adorable if you ask me!
OK have a great rest of the weekend!
