Inspired design: Mixing old and new.



It was a busy week of staging, de-staging, sourcing new products and preparing for an 
upcoming "top secret" event. Here are a few of this week's highlights.


Staged this GORGEOUS unit on Newbury St Boston

 View from Living Room. 







While looking for industrial items for my "secret" event. I stumbled upon THIS major
find in a hotel liquidation/salvage store. I literally died when I saw this gigantic oil painting for $200!!! (now hanging in my little tiny dining room)





I'm obsessed with this painting and cannot wait to re-design my dining room around this antique art. Mixing old and mid century modern is truly my preferred design style. 
When I want inspiration for my own house, I look to designer Catherine Kwong. 
Her work is a visually stunning mix of old and new. 

Some of Catherine's work:



View her portfolio here. And, her blog is FABULOUS too.

And one more thing... Here is my favorite PIN this week. Ack! 
THIS MARBLE IS TO DIE FOR!!!
