Can’t Get Enough Show and Tell

20 Sep

Just because I am playing catch-up, I am adding an update to Sunday’s Weekend Show and Tell.  Feast your eyes upon all the lovelies I found in my favorite blogs last week.  (Or maybe the week before…but who’s counting?)

From ‘Happiness Is…’ a tree house to make Buckminster Fuller proud.  A lovely geodesic design that is apparently all the rage in Hollywood.  Not that I am a huge trend-follower or anything (clearly an analog girl in a digital world), but I think this is just the bee’s knees.

And because one ‘Happiness Is…’ reference isn’t enough, the blog also featured this gorgeous vintage loft, complete with the kitchen table and tulip chairs I covet. 

Featured in Remodelista, I don’t know how I feel about a bamboo kitchen in my house (too far removed from the style we are going for possibly) but the design is so MCM and the intention behind using a sustainable product like bamboo completely embraces the MCM design philosophy.  So, of course, I love it.

I want to be the person who finds dried out, dusty, but well-designed mid-century pieces at estate and garage sales like this, this, and this.  Someone please tell me how these gems are found, because I never seem to be the one to find them.

And how cool are these two Ikea ideas:  The first from Alice in Designland…look what you can do with an laminate Ikea wardrobe and some contact paper?  Also, check out the cool Mondrian-inspired headboard (courtesy of Grassrootsmodern) from Ikea.  I think they stacked two of them, but at $149 a pop, that’s still a bargain.

    Absolutely beautiful kitchens! I love the raw warehouse feel of the first kitchen, and the powder blue counter tops in the second one.

    Now if only we knew a good neighborhood where lots of stylish people got old and died. 😛

    Greetings Brandy!
    Estate sales might be your best source for the furniture. Steve’s grandmother gave us a dresser that looks like a mid-century modern style.

    good luck!
