I opened the latest West Elm catalog and immediately noticed their Gilded Vines Metal Wall Art.

It looked strikingly familiar!

This gold metal vine is available in the Pursuing Vintage Shop.

What do you think?  Can you “hang” with the gold wall hangings?

Check out this terrific campaign desk from Land of Nod!  A great option for those who love vintage style but prefer to buy new.

Campaign Desk in Cobalt – Land of Nod

It comes in three great colors – cobalt (above), green, and white.  Take a look:

Campaign Desk in White

 

At $399, it is an affordable option, and puts it in-line with many of its authentic vintage counterparts.  Plus, if you sign up to receive emails from Land of Nod, you’ll get a 10% off coupon!  (This post is not sponsored in any way by Land of Nod.)

This desk is not just for kids!  (I’d love it in white for myself!)

What do you think?  What color strikes your fancy?

Repro Thursday

The latest Serena & Lily catalog arrived yesterday.  Take a look at that cover!  Of course I immediately opened the pages, hoping that by doing so, my surroundings would immediately imitate the cover!

Serena & Lily Summer 2014

I wasn’t transported to a beach, (still surrounded by blanket forts and stray Legos) but I did enjoy the beautiful pages.  As usual, it is full of pops of color and awesome patterns.  They also have a few new products, one of which I thought would be perfect for some summertime entertaining.  And you know I can’t pass up a good bar cart photo!

S&L Cottage Bar Cart

 

The Cottage Bar Cart is made of bent and woven rattan.  If you’ve visited the Pursuing Vintage Shop lately, you’ve noticed my love of rattan and bentwood.  I love the light feel of the pieces – coastal and earthy with a bit of whimsy.  A rattan piece does not take itself too seriously – it is like a breath of fresh air.  Rattan is extremely versatile, and this cart is no exception.  I think S&L describes it best “Bar cart, magazine perch, mini stage for collected objêts…However (and wherever) you put this double-tiered cart to use, it takes to the task with notable style“.

Do you think you’d have a place for this bar cart?  Or do you prefer the more traditional metal types?
