One of my favorite things to do first thing in the AM is check instagram. Are you all as addicted as I am? Every Thursday...everyone posts pictures from the past and call it "throwback thursday". I never join the fun but recently I have been getting a lot of my inspiration from old decorating and design books from the 60s and 70s.
Every time I see an old bookstore, I go in search of fabulous vintage decor books. They are so fun and really show me that what goes around always comes back around again...
It's surprising how similar styles translate through the years. Look at these red and white striped wall, with stars on the bottom half...so creative. Those red bamboo chairs would look amazing today, as would that cute little zebra underneath the parsons console table.
Marble walls/wallpaper have really become really chic again and this old red and white marbled wall looked amazing in 1975 too! Hello.
This monochromatic blue room is totally chic. The geometric rug is fab and those little round caged stools are back in the stores. Also notice the damien hurst-esque dot art. Kinda hot right there.
