It’s the most beautiful piece of furniture I’ve ever seen. And it’s all mine 😉
My credenza arrived on Wednesday after what seemed like a month long trek from Oregon to Alabama. Nearly…I purchased it on January 29, it shipped February 11, and it arrived February 24.
I threw all this up here to take a pretty styled photo and ended up liking it just as it was. You may recognize the Target lamp, and that vase is Target too.
A bit of vintage brass and a lot of scale here, with the tiny unicorn. I used to play the United States puzzle with my Grandfather. The turtle is sitting on a memory card game you probably played as a kid? Beautiful mid-century animal illustrations by Charley Harper.
My favorite styling books and a little Gustav held up by some vintage walruses! There’s a lot of warm colors working here: creams, reds, yellows…and then just a dash of cool with blues and greens coming in from the art work and books and the bowl (which is for keys and clutter).
I left my security camera in the photos for a bit of realism. Ha!
I’m so excited to have it! I ordered this piece off Etsy, like my tiny chairs. This is my 2nd online furniture purchase and while I hate the shipping cost…it seems to be worthwhile!!
The styling books on the credenza are:
and one I just received but haven’t found a home for but highly recommend if you love mid-century furniture like I do, Fifties House. There are pages and pages of inspiring photos, including my all time favorite house, The Miller House!
Next month I am taking another trip back to Los Angeles (it got its hold on me last September when we went to the desert!) and I’ll be touring the Eames House. I haven’t looked at any pictures because I want to be surprised by what I see. Looking forward to coming back as refreshed/renewed/inspired as last trip!
