I have a bit of an old soul.
At least in my decorating style.
I love worn out, lived in, and abused looks.
I love brown floral wallpaper and beat-up quilts.
Rusty wagons and shop tables make my heart beat faster.
A clown knickknack, a hobnail vase, or a dirty portrait will be a great gift!
But, sometimes…sometimes…I LOVE a bit of new!
I recently went to World Market and updated my reading nook with my finds!
And they fit in so well with my old, tired goods!
I purchased a teal pillow, a slate pillow (with fab button details!),
a slate cheeseboard (for a tray), an egg holder,
tea lights for the egg holder, and a timer.
Don’t they just look lovely!!!
World Market…you rocked my world with this stuff!!
My favorite purchase at World Market was the butterfly wrapping paper.
Which I promptly put on the wall!!
A quick look at the daybed.
This was pre-blogging.
It was simply 2 pallets attached to an antique footboard.
A mattress is set atop.
I use a body pillow for the “back” and wrap the whole thing in an antique chenille bedspread.
Isn’t that the coolest!!
Okay, we need to talk a bit about my pretties.
First, you can see the butterfly paper on the wall.
Isn’t that great!
Second…that vintage clock. Sigh…it’s so sweet!
Third…the guitar is broken. No matter, it makes me look so chic!
Fourth. The lamp. It’s old. It’s vintage. It was my great grandmothers. How cool is that!
Fifth. The minnow bucket. With flowers. Seriously.
Sixth. Clowns. Because they are just strange.
Seventh. Old window. Because windows are cool. This one has teal paint. It makes it that much cooler!
There you have it.
My old soul reading nook.
Thank you World Market for the great additions to my space!
Especially that paper…love that!
Here are a few more spaces in my house…
