Beautiful! I'm going to start calling my style vintage/modern too!

I have a MCM dresser in original condition that has a white top with dark wood stain everywhere else. I feel like this is one of its cousins.

Love it! I have a 9-yr-old boy and I could totally see him growing up in this grown up Mario room.

Lovely home. It really does look inviting. I love that the original tilework in the bathrooms have been left untouhed.

Love it! Last years I knitted cardigans and sweaters for my kids and they love them. This year, I'm making a Minecraft quilt for my 8-yr-son.

I have done this before for my kids. They do not care where their gifts come from. I am getting them new toys this year, but limiting 3 gifts total per child. That is close to what I have done since they were born because I do not like over consumption.

Love this place!!! Love the mini collections. I've never seen so much Clinique in one bathroom.

Reminds me of "So I Married and Axe Murderer" when Mike Myers walks into a really cool apartment and says, "You know what this place needs? A large poster of ..."

I'm obsessed with your workspace. Love the midcentury vive. Feels fresh, not dated.

I never thought I'd see the McDonald's arch as home decor. Fun! Love the graffiti artwork.

What a great Indepence Day post! I just love the last photo with the chair. I have a Shaker style, wooden, step stool that I bought on etsy.com for my kids to use at the bathroom sink. I couldn't bring myself to buy a hideous plastic step stool.

Cool space! I love that it feel like a real person lives here. Very welcoming in a cool, industrial way.

P.S. I hate to say anything bad but I really distracted by so many out of focus photos or that focused on random things while the main idea was blurry.

I'm working on my bedroom right now. Wishing I could enter but unfortunately right now it's an unsightly 1/2 home office while we're taking forever to renovate our real home office space. Maybe next year.

Amazing! I'm obsessed with this house. The dark woods, the stunning kitchen, your library off your bedroom...wow!

I have a similar color pallete in my home so I enjoyed this house tour. I have icy blue walls with white trim and dark reddish wooden furniture. Love the anatomical print! I think my little kids would be terrified of it if I has it in my home.

I bought a small painting that was done on paper from an etsy painter that i love and I was able to get a black gallery style frame from target. I didn't spend much but it makes a wonderful impact and looks expensive!

Plunger man was probably someone like my husband. I often send him to the store for me because if he says he's getting 3 things he comes home with 3 things. He thinks it's a waste of time and money to get anything else.
