Weekend Show and Tell 8-21

21 Aug

I wish I could say my lack of posts was because I am so busy with house projects. It’s not. It’s because I am so busy with getting back to work after my lovely (not) vacation and a two-day business trip to the big Apple. I did have time to scour the internet and do a little dreaming for the future and am sharing what with you today.

A bunch of friends sent me this link on the NYT article about the awesome blog Retro Renovation, that I often talk about in MCML.  It’s great to see this trend in renovation taking off.  While I would say that the blog is more about retro than mid-century modern specifically, it does have some great MCM resources.

From The Brick House, I love this ‘fauxdenza’ created from Ikea cabinets. This guy is so creative.


From the category of ‘Most Fun Find’ this week is a wonderful lawn dish-drying rack I saw on Happiness Is…  Indeed!


And ‘Hello Gorgeous’ from Jason Lewis (via Rhan Vintage Modern). While this rocking chair at $1850 is WAY out of my price range, it’s great inspiration when searching at estate sales and thrift stores. I can’t decide if I like it more than the Eames Herman Miller rocker in green below ($479). What do you think?

    i have that dish-drying rack and the eames rocker and love them both. the whole fam thought it was ridiculous that we chose that as our go-to rocking chair for the babe because everyone thought it was just for
    looks but there’s a reason that herman miller keeps producing it. it’s beautiful but it is so comfortable and you barely have to move to rock- it’s wonderful!
