Deborah Needleman via Martha Stewart
I am not sure how I would categorize my style...shabby chic? Fun? Mix of old and new? I don't know. But I find myself drawn to whimsical homes where things match, but not too much, things are comfy and cozy, but not sloppy, things can be traditional, but not too much. Notice a pattern?
When I shopped at the Sleepy Poet Antique mall this past weekend, I also noticed some things that would be perfect in a fun home. I have recently found Deborah Needleman (remember that great magazine Domino?) and I love her spaces and ideas. Here are some pictures of what I found and an Interview with Deborah Needleman via Martha Stewart and Kevin Sharkey's blog.
Great patchwork pillows from various fabrics - love the trim!
Dog and horse yard art.
Old fountain bar stools. I would love to paint the bases in a bright color. Would be so durable in a family home and take up less space too! Sometimes bar stools can feel so heavy in a room.
Here is Deborah's book. Lots of great ideas!
