Hello all! Hard to believe it has been a week since my last post. Summer is my busy season! Everyone has decided they need help and I'm happy to oblige. I'm still posting daily on Instagram if you'd like to stay connected.
Welcome back to my weekly series, Retro Knox Designed, where I take one piece from my favorite store, Retro Knox, and design a room around this piece. Although his pieces are all vintage/antique/mid-century style, I want you to see that you don't need a mid-century home, or a super
glam room to mix these pieces in with what you already have.
Let's stop saying "I'll take it all." from the furniture showroom floor, and let's start building a room that's original to you and your family. That speaks to your story.
When I share a design plan for a client, I'm not able to share all of the sources with you. But with this series, because you are the client, you get every source! ;-) Just click on the photo to click through to the item.

This vintage Mid-Century table by McGuire from the 1960's is in the form of a bundled sheaf of wheat. A round glass top makes it the perfect table for your breakfast nook.
28"H x 38"D with the glass top.
I remember when Sarah Richardson, one of my all time favorite designers, used this table in one of her dining rooms.
I think sometimes when we see vintage or Mid-Century pieces they can come across slightly masculine. So I decided to combine this table with a bit of pretty. Pinks, corals, buffalo check, combined with a modern wallpaper make this breakfast nook sing.
Here are all the details:
a natural rug with metallic trim...
table with glass top...
modern and playful wallpaper
And this bench. I die over this bench combined with the table.
Pillows for the bench, because pillows are always a good idea.
I kept the lighting simple on purpose. Simple can be gorgeous!
And if you really want to take it up a notch, let's layer our lighting with sconces.
What do you think?
Can you imagine using this table in your home?
I hope you follow on with Retro Knox on Instagram to keep up with all of the newest inventory. There are big changes coming to the store that you won't want to miss!
Whether you're near or far, I would love to work with you to create a home you love. Email me at email@example.com for more information on my local & e-design services.
