As we've been furnishing our place, I'm realizing that often I'm making purchases based on the mid-century aesthetic that complements the house. But I haven't been paying enough attention to the types of pieces to which I'm intuitively drawn . . . the more rustic, rough-hewn, and natural.
|Kitchen under previous ownership (it's not currently this clean or neat!)|
In fact, what really sold this house for us was the kitchen, and something not even actually attached to the kitchen: the gorgeous center island that the previous owners purchased from the Sundance catalog and (with my super smooth negotiations, i.e., begging and pleading) left for us.
So here are some pieces that I've had my eye on lately that go both with the mid-century aesthetic of the house and with my love for vintage, repurposed woods:
