Keep it Simple.

What an inspirational sentiment to start the new Spring season.

If you love simplicity you've come to the right place!

I've combined a few simple pieces that range from vintage to modern. These pieces can all work together beautifully to create peace and harmony in your home.

The items in the picture below were collected by Jennifer Lyons and come from some wonderful Etsy shops.  

 And please check out the stunning mid century modern pieces from Post Corner Home. I love to combine vintage with modern. If you keep it simple, you can do it!

Post Modern Home

I'm a "cottage style" kind of decorator - have been for many years. 
But lately I've been coming over to the other side. There are so many charming, quirky mid century pieces out there that capture the imagination. 
And they are perfect for mixing with things you already own.  

A new store featuring both original and refurbished mid century modern pieces has just opened at 110 Post Road in Darien, Ct. It's called, appropriately enough, POST MODERN HOME.

Looking for wonderful mid century modern pieces online?  

Look no further than ETSY.
I've included some amazing finds from some of ETSY's best shops.

All of these selections are from some of my favorite ETSY shops!
