Kitchen Shelving Inspiration

8 Sep

I was recently at the beach combing flickr for photos. What else do you do at a crowded beach? Anyway, I came across this photo, again from the 1950’s Armstrong collection. I love these shelves and everything about this image so much that I set the image as my wallpaper. Now whenever I look at my phone get all stoked and inspired all over again. Even that colorized salad looks good, c’mon.

Living Room Inspiration

6 Sep

We can’t have a stone slab fireplace, ceiling to floor windows or 20′ tall ceilings but we’ll try and shove this style right into our teeny two-bedroom apartment above a chinese acupuncturist. Living the dream, I know.

This image is from a photo set on flickr of “Interiors from Armstrong.” It simply says “1950s living room with Calder-like mobile.” So that is to say – the mobile looks like a mobile made by the guy who invented mobiles.

Kagan coffee table – keep an eye out on craigslist! This style is always popping up for under $300.00. $10.00 Ikea vase, Calder mobile, and $480.00 grey tapered-leg repro couch from Urban Outfitters. Get it, girl.
