Coffee table styling / blue and white / Pursuing Vintage

I’m always changing my interior decor.  It is always evolving and things are always moving around.  Usually it’s just the little things: accessories, art, pillows.  Sometimes it’s a larger piece of furniture.  When I look back at family photos, I enjoy seeing what my home (and family member’s homes) looked like in that moment in time.  Sometimes I cringe, sometimes not!  But it made me realize that my home is a living, breathing part of the family.  Little vignettes are like little moments in the life of us.

I thought it would be fun to have a series documenting some of these “Interior Moments”.  Most from my own home, but I’ll also be pestering some of my design-minded friends to see if I can photograph an Interior Moment in their home.  I hope it serves as a bit of inspiration for you!

Today I’m sharing my coffee table as it currently looks, as well as a little addition to my bar cart.

I found these vintage porcelain dice the same estate sale I found this brass leaf.  I’m in love with the detail on the leaf.  After research, I found out it was made by Virginia Metalcrafters and designed by Oskar J.W. Hansen.  Hansen was a renowned artist/sculptor of his time and his biggest works can be seen at the  Hoover Dam.  Evidently this leaf is part of series that he created, all with the same crazy-intricate detail, and all very collectible.  Who knew?!

And the coffee table books were not just chosen because they’re blue.  I’m obsessed with Jackie, and museums are my favorite places to go.  Everything with meaning!

The hydrangeas are from our local supermarket and have held up beautifully.  I love the simplicity in the white of their petals.

I’ve added this splendid little still life oil painting by Gretchen Hancock to my bar cart.  It was a Christmas gift from my dad (thanks, Dad!).  I was going to frame it, but kind of like it on this little brass stand for now.  I’m so drawn to Gretchen’s gorgeous little detailed still life fruit paintings.  Be sure to check her out!

For now, those are my Interior Moments.  But, as I said, we’re always changing things around here!  I even have a great little helper.  He’s pretty strong for an almost-four-year-old, and enjoys moving things around almost as much as I do!

Dragging the rug around the house to see what it looks like in different places. Kid after my own heart.

    Love this post, Kristen! I always enjoy seeing the new little things you’ve done to your house. And I’m still so jealous of those white and gold candles–I need to get working on a DIY version!
