Mod Mix Monday 36

Pink-a-licious
I would never think to do a room up like this but seeing it here...I just adore it.
Bright pink mixed with brown and lots of white accents.
But what I love most is the pink and brown chinese themed toile fabric on those two chairs.
That pink ottoman is fabulous too. 

Here we go with my favorites from last week's Mod Mix Monday...as usual...you did not 
disappoint.
Might as well start it off with some more pink.
We saw the other side of this dining room last week and this week, we get to see this 
over the top china cabinet all done up in pink created by Bonnie 

I could not click fast enough when I saw the thumbnail for this little table.
Doesn't it look like icing on a wedding cake?
Sissie of Sissie's Shabby Cottage showed this beauty off.
Cindy at Oakview Cottage has been talking about this makeover for awhile.
And she revealed the results this past week.
Her husband added new details to an old armoire and Cindy added the paint and finish.
Now it's a statement piece!
This is quite a kitchen makeover by Aimee at It's Overflowing.com
I love the granite she chose and the nice little details like the little knick knack shelf at the end of the cabinet.
There was a time...I would have walked right by a campaign dresser if I saw one in a thrift store.
Not any more! Cindy of Viva Cindy painted this chest with Martha Stewart's Palmetto and now it's a WOW!
I think this is the prettiest mud room I've ever seen. 
Lots of good stuff going on here from Craigslist furniture makeovers to chalkboard paint and 
vintage maps plus mod lamps and fun colors. 
I can't wait to see more from Heidi at The Mindful Nest.
And finally for Valentine's...
Laura of Cottage and Broome shared her pink and pretty china collection and heart shaped
sugar cubes she made herself!

Just beautiful things.

Yesterday, I saw the Jason Wu collection in person at Target and have to say I was impressed.
The day dresses were sweet and young looking but his tshirts were really impressive.
Totally wearable but very feminine...with very pretty details.
And...he had a version of this dress for $59.95
Here it is...
Ok...it's rather short. Obviously aimed at teens. But it is cute.
These were some of his other things I liked.
feminine T with bow detailing.
The fabric was very soft.
soft grey tshirt with lace detail printed down the front.
And the logo of the collection...the black cat on a T.
smart bag by Jason Wu, too.

I hope you have a wonderful week and as always I'm looking forward to your Mod Mixes.
Link up this week's Mod Mixes below.
Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...

I LOVE mixing up my old clothes to make new outfits!! I'm so enjoying my 30 for 30 series.

And I LOVE the things you've picked out - Cindy did SUCH a great job doing up that wardrobe.

Hi Nita, I love that first image. I think the paint color is what takes it to the top. What a great mix of photos from last week. The pink china is awesome. Have a great week!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

HI Nita, I ran off to look at everybody's features. Almost forgot to comment. I have to agree with you on the toile. That brown and pink toile is soooo wonderful! It must have been the room's inspiration. That pink china cab was really cute and I see her table is like yours.

Hmmm...I wonder how PINK would fit in with my Black and White?
Love all your picks, especially Heidi's Mod Mudroom.
I'm gonna have to get that Black Cat T!
XOXO - Cindi

Beautiful features, I specially love the kitchen redo from Over Flowing. I've lost 6 lbs. with my new year's resolution diet, so far and some things are fitting already, so I'm loving this mix and match cloths! Thanks for hosting and have a happy week.
