Vintage Inspiration Friday
Lately I've found myself inspired by
neutrals and textures. Lots of white, lots of texture, and a natural organic feel.
Over the summer I went to a barn sale at the home of a gentleman
I've met through auctioning and antiquing. He has a Christmas tree farm and hosts
barn sales a few times a year. I am sooo looking forward to his Christmas sale!!
Anyways, his summer sale did not disappoint! I found quite a few
treasures and as he was helping me load up the car, I asked if he had any old ladders because
I had been looking for one. He promptly said "I'll be right back."
I watched him head off towards the big barn that was off limits to customers.
He returned shortly with two 10 foot long ladders in the most perfect weathered patina.
Even though it was way too long for my car, and I'd have to drive 30 miles with the hatch up,
I couldn't pass up a cool $10 ladder that had been on my "severely desire" list for quite some time!
Got the weathered beauty home and Mickey cut her down to just the right size for our ceiling.
And then started adding lots of layers of quilts and blankets.
All neutral white but packed with texture!
even ball fringe!
I had almost all of the blankets and quilts already, so it was a low budget addition
to the family room. But it packs a big textural punch in that corner! I was also going for height and a
ladder tends to do the trick every time!
I'm very inspired by Lissa's style at Humble Pie.
She incorporates all sorts of textures, patinas and neutrals in her home
in a simple and sophisticated way. I always love visiting her blog to see what she's been up to!
