Thought I would start the weekend off in style by posting some beautiful retro inspired images. Both of these images are taken from Apartment Therapy and show how you can incorporate vintage style with a modern interior. The top image is of an Egg chair designed in 1957 by Arne Jacobsen (on my wish list). No retro inspired interior is complete without a gorgeous vintage sideboard like the one being showcased in the second image. I love the way the sideboard and shelves are 'stacked' with vintage vases, books and bowls but that it doesn't look cluttered or over-the-top. The large retro lamp balances everything beautifully. These images make me want to rearrange my interior immediately! Hope everyone has a good weekend.
Hello .... My name is Michelle, welcome to my blog. I am an artist and serial home renovator living in Brisbane, Australia. I enjoy looking for treasures in op-shops and antique stores, and have a love of modern interiors with a mid century modern, or vintage/retro vibe. This site is about my life, my love of designing, and the creation of my paper art.
I am currently studying interior design so part of my blog serves as a place to hold my growing collection of "interior inspirations".
Thank you for visiting. I would be delighted if you took the time to leave a comment.

Each of my designs are taken mainly from exquisitely illustrated 1950's/60's/70's books. Most of these books are sourced from op-shops and, having been loved by others, are often damaged in some way. My art brings stories to life setting free beautiful illustrations that may otherwise remain shelved and unread.
