We are nesting! But not the ‘having a baby’ kind of nesting, let’s not get crazy… We do have a new addition to the family with these nesting tables, however. They create a highly functional set and they work easily with many different styles – so many that I’m having a hard time deciding where they will ultimately live. At the moment, I have them in my family room, since they give my boys a great surface for playing with their Legos, that can slide out of the way when they’re done (read… not be seen by me and not on the floor). I tend to incorporate quite a bit of vintage into every single space in my home and it has been fun to see these tables work that look.
I styled these cuties with three completely different looks, and for three completely different uses. While every single one of these spaces has a mix of modern and vintage with both high and low price points, I think the various styles will give you a good grasp of their versatility. There is nothing quite like a fab mix of pieces that is entirely unexpected! Don’t you love that?
For this look I channeled my global granny self, added a bit of that hipster handmade vibe with a dash of Copacabana thrown in, for a Beachy Brazilian touch. Yep, totally random, but oh how happy I would be in this space.
We will call the gal who lives here “Babs,” and she is a veritable ‘Girl from Ipanema’ (World Famous Brazilian Bossa Nova song)and boy she has lived quite the life. She loves to reminisce about all of the memories she has made along the way and throughout her travels. She could sure tell you a tale or two about her go-go dancing days, but your mother probably wouldn’t like that much. But now she is settling down a bit and prefers to stay closer to home where she can sip her hot cocoa in her big cozy chair and knit blankets for her grandkids – or the new neighbors down the street.
I channeled my inner 80’s glam girl self, with a punch of black lacquer and brass, and then threw in some beachy natural texture to the mix for the perfect ‘Barbie and the Rockers’ goes to Big Sur design moment. Ya, I kinda love a look that is equal parts chic and yet still totally weird.
I call this gal Gemma and she is a true downtown girl who loves the art scene and can be found at every hip new spot in the city. From art gallery openings to coffee shops, she is constantly on the move and never stays in one place too long. She wears black like it’s her uniform and loves the way her red lipstick pops against her pale skin, especially when her hair is pulled back in a sleek low slung ponytail.
Meet Zoe, my inner flower child babe with a quirky fun loving outlook on life. This gal is a bit more feminine, and fresh out of college with her first real world job. She loves to hit up the flea market when she isn’t driving down to visit her parents in Connecticut, for the weekend.
She’s a single gal who loves her nephews and can’t wait to start a family of her own one day. For now she is content with her two cats, though she thinks she may have over done it in the mothering department, since they are a bit on the bratty side. They absolutely never do as they are told. Zoe loves to listen to music and sing along with the broom handle as her microphone, but of course she always sounds better in the shower… who doesn’t?
So which look resonates with you most? Are you more of a downtown girl or a flea market vintage loving gal? Maybe you love to knit and travel is your favorite pastime!
