There were many pics of this gallery wall collage in my living room on the 'ol world wide web this past week. Many thanks to Design*Sponge and EQ3's blog Inhabit for doing some features on my designs. Max at Design*Sponge did a great piece on the two Mid-Century Modern chairs that I redid and Inhabit was kind enough to feature some of my living room details along with the Reverie sofa I purchased as a gift to myself for Christmas last year. Thank you so much to both sites for your kind words. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to share my ideas with the world, outside of this blog.

This kitchen is quirky. When I moved in my landlords assumed that they would have to buy a new stove for the tenant. I imagine they were somewhat overjoyed to find out that I was really excited by the old Findlay model - four years later and it's still cooking with gas. The layout of the kitchen isn't the most convenient space to work in, but what it lacks in function it makes up for in cheerful charm. I love the character of the old 50's cupboards and wouldn't trade them for the sleekness of any new model. They just wouldn't work in here.
It was indeed a moody Monday. The weather was all over the place, it didn't quite know where to go, but I'm content that the crazy heat hasn't hit us again. I've been working on several mood boards for various projects over the past little bit. I thought I'd take a few minutes to put a couple up here.
I've been giving these little packs of cards as gifts lately. Wonderful designs by Frausto & Co. Each card has a fruit, veg or herb on the face and the back gives you detailed instructions for growing success. They are perfect for playing a hand of bridge or for knowing how much to water your carrots. Win win. They also have really great packaging.
Hello . My name is Kate Lavender. I am a decorator, stylist, collector and purveyor of fine vintage trinkets and wares. I endeavour to incorporate my one of a kind "curated" collections into contemporary living. I've spent many a day wandering the aisles of thrift shops, seeking out auctions and garage sales, looking for little lost treasures. I am interested in the combination of romantic and industrial and mid-century modern style. I love lace, needlework, teak furniture and antique glassware. I fill my world with collections of things from another time and aspire to share this passion with others.
May I help you with something?
