Welcome to my Sister "Margo" and Brother n law "David's" home!
Their style is "Fun,Funky, Vintage and Retro"a mix of styles that all work with harmony and balance. My sister "Margo" has used orange, green, gold and warm shades of chocolate and black as accent colors. The pop-art photo of Margo and David above the couch is fun and colorful! it represents their playfulness and easy going side. The couch is upholstered with the softest suede fabric and David says the arms remind him of chocolate "Ho Ho's" ( by the way David l-o-v-e-s chocolate). The gold hanging lamp by the curtains is from the 1970's time frame.
Margo made all the paisley curtains for this room and the long bolster pillow on the kidney shaped love seat. A fun round mirror and candles hang on the wall in the front entry.
These are four Japanese nesting tables with hand carved dragons. They are over 60 years old and belonged to our Grandparents. I love how they look in my Sister's home!.
Aren't they beautiful!
Another piece I adore in this room is this Victorian- style Tunisian hand -painted birdcage from Africa. I hope you can see all the lovely detail.
Here's a better photo, Margo held a blanket up behind it for me so I could take the photo, in hopes of showing you all the beautiful detail work on the birdcage. (I have dibs on this birdcage if sister ever wants to sell it). Hint, Hint and a smile. Margo and David were married in 2001, they are both school teachers and love to travel. I made this counted cross stitch wedding sampler for them as a gift. The Dinning Room~ Is painted a warm golden yellow, the dinning table is black iron with four upholstered suede chairs. The restaurant sign was hand made that is hanging on the wall behind the table, Margo found this piece while antique shopping.
The hanging lamp is full of retro charm!
Margo loves her china plates and tea-cups just like I do and she has them displayed in these lovey white washed cabinets.
And for the love of orange and retro, you must have a 1970's orange glass vase!.
My love the tea-cups.
The Kitchen~ A bistro table for two, the walls are painted in a warm sherbet color. Modern yet retro, again for the love of orange. The curtains are a soft gray.
A vintage toaster cover, this little hand made doll is dressed in yellow checks and is wearing a white apron.
The tea-cart is another find Margo purchased while antique shopping.
Even the lighting over the bistro table has a touch of retro, a band of orange, green and gold strips.
I hope you have enjoyed a peek in side Margo and David's home.
Next post I will show you the office, Master bath and laundry room.
May your day be full of happiness and your heart be full of sunshine.
Hugs and a smile, Elizabeth
