Find 2: Peacock Park- an Olde Surprise

What is it about this Vintage Chic look that keeps calling my name?

I stumbled upon this new showroom while on my day trip
to the Dallas Market Center and was enchanted by 
the creative merchandising and charming displays.

Enter Peacock Park, who's owner founded the company
due to her love of all things worn, tattered, old, torn-
and of course, French.

Can someone please just hire me already to design a room using this stuff?!!!
I need to get it out of my system
(then, I will quit blogging about it:)

Luv the curled, printed paper chain-

 Mirror idea is so cute
maybe a DIY project for you!

The sign below says it all!
My motto

If you love this romantic, European chic design style also,
check out my previous post here and here for
more gorgeous goodies!

Until next time,

Updated Vintage Accessories: For You?

I'm definitely having a "thing" with this vintage modern look...
not sure what it is, but I want it!  I want to put it in someone's!  Mine?  Hmmmm.... I'm trying to integrate some pieces
and do seem to be getting away with it.

Friday, I stopped by my favorite art gallery, La Montage, and visited 
with sweet Gaylynn and Kelly.

I'm always drawn to the unique gift items they have scattered
among the gorgeous art pieces. 

Here are a few:

The Queen and King will demand attention on your favorite buffet piece or counter-

This artist can also create these pieces using your vintage photographs-
way more interesting than just a frame!

These were my favorites- was it the bird? the blue? the jewelry? the cream?... or the finials?

I took a few peeks at the egg plaque on the left... I need it-

To further my fetish, I took a look over at Etsy to see if I could
find more of this look- and I scored!

How easy is this? You can buy all the 
pieces for $150!

Why not spruce up your light switch cover?  Wait- $5?

Adored these candlesticks as well-
Yes- $5.00 for the pair

Cruised some new blogs and found this sweet framed

Back to Etsy and saw these crafty burlap tags...

Are you ready for an updated Shabby Chic look in your home?
I'm inspired and ready to provide it for you!

Until next time,

White...inside or out?

Some of you near and dear to me had a White Christmas in Atlanta!

As happy as I was to hear that, I was a bit sad that my parents' flight
 to Dallas might be delayed today...

but, thanks to a late gift from Santa, they are flying the friendly skies as we speak!

Those of you in states where you will never experience the peaceful 
feeling of a snowfall on Christmas, please enjoy one of my favorite design styles 
where you can always be surrounded by the tranquility of white...

Thanks to Joanie over at Cote de Texas for these beautiful photos~

With a touch of inspiration from Sweden, this relaxed vintage style shines with personality. 

One of my goals this year is to enhance "the twist" in my client interiors by scouring...

more antique stores
vintage shops and 
off the beaten path boutiques

 to add that perfect touch to the room!

Just think shades of white, multitudes of texture, and a touch of whimsy!
More of this design style certainly to come on Classic...with a twist!

What catches your eye?

Until next time,
