Mod Mix Monday #92

Blue Hint
Oh...this is a pretty view from one room to another.
I love the wallpaper seen through the doorway in the dining room.
The blues in the first room hint at what is to come.
I think everything is pretty wonderful about this decor except....
I'm not a fan of that rug and that low bench thing.
It's just weird.
The painted floor is pretty and it's not painted in the next room and it looks good!
I don't like the cowhide draped on the modern chair either but everything else....
I think is just awesome including the wallpaper. 
Well, that's my opinion and it's my blog so I can give my opinion.
What would you change in the room...if anything?

On to this week's favorites from last week's Mod Mix Monday party!
Ok, this is aDORable! 
Kim of Made in a Day did a knock off of a stool she saw at Pier 1.
Her version is sooooo much better! 
And this is so easy to do.
Go check it out!
Chateau Revivals shared their latest furniture makeover.
You will not believe how ugly the "before" was.
The "after" is is streamlined and luscious.
Melissa of Daisy Mae Belle made this cute burlap and twine frame.
You can just clip your photos to the twine. 
Or whatever you wish...it could be little bits of anything.
What a pretty memory board this would be!
Ok, so there isn't really anything mod about this at all...but I loved it.
Deb of Lavender Garden Cottage shared several photos of her styling 
of this wonderful vintage bench. 
When her cats weren't sleeping on it..she made some beautiful vignettes.
This one was my favorite. 
Danielle of Finding Silver Pennies freshened up a friends coffee table by 
painting it with some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. 
I'd have a hard time giving it back once I made it look this good.

On to this week....
My goodness this year is flying by...

I always say...
"Time flies even when you aren't having fun!"

But this year is really going fast...because so far...I am having a very nice year.

Share your Mod Mixes for this week below.
Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...

I love the inspirational photo. I agree about the rug...it doesn't really ground anything, so I'd put it away. I like everything else, and I'd love to see more of the dining room!

Thanks for hosting!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Well I'm late, and my post is lame, but at least it matches your header! :)

Dewena said...

Pretty things here, Nita, and I found some real inspiration for my kitchen in the "pink and white kitchen" entry.

On your picture I too would take out the rug, both throws on the two chairs and the pad on the bench. The bench might be okay without the pad. Everything else really pleases my eye.
