Vintage Inspiration " Industrial Soul "

There is a very masculine side to me and it appears when I pick pieces that

will grace my home or one of my spaces at the Store...





and my heart will leap at the sight of industrial bliss...




Mr. Dior used his man strength to bring out the shiny

beauty of an old amo box & this charming stool I found




I love using old salvaged doors...

they have a story and a place in my heart



Sue's boy Bryce had this salvaged piece of corrugated metal

that I fell in love with...



candle light and hanging lanterns

for that perfect summer night...




burlap and rust { swoon }




linking up to Darling Debra at Common Ground

for Vintage Inspiration Friday...



Have a blessed weekend

I am off to visit Karli to

see what we will be doing this week at



much love...

I just love all the chippy industrial goodness, too, Kate! Wonderful eye candy!

Amy said...

I agree with you Kate
I think that it reflects in the pieces that I also choose for my home. I keep my boys in mind when decorating for my family and our home.
I just don't think I could live amongst frills and flowers and feel comfy. Nor would they.
I love the crates in your space, I think a trip is overdue, we need to hit cali soon!!
Hope to see you when we do
Amy

I have to make it into country roads, I am not to far from you!!!
Love your side, I design with a bit of a strong decor side to myself as well. I like to anchor the room with a manly piece.

Beautiful post as well as inspiring.

Lovin' it all girl! My girlfriend, Margaret, and I will have to make a trip back to the Urban Barn to check out your space. You two are so cute and your space is lookin' good! And I'm really lovin' the new look of your blog too. I'm in the process of an update myself but it's not as easy as I'd like it to be!
We checked out your space during the big sale and you were wiped out! A guy had just swooped up that crusty chandelier and I missed out! I probably could've taken him down but that wouldn't have been very lady like so I decided against it. ;).

Blessings to you dearie!

I love mantiques too! Your booth is so wonderful.
Come do mine :)
I have two white porch columns priced at $120 and they've sat there forever. My shoppers I think are more of the yard sale version.

Hi Kate - Love your new display, especially the hanging candleholders. I haven't had the chance to go back to "Roads" yet but you know I will. Also excited that you're opening up a booth in Urban Farm. It's closer to me than OC, so please let me know when you start there. I will have to visit it of course.

It's Just Me said...

Kate, those goodies are beautiful. I have that same ammo box. I wanted to paint it but I'm liking the shiny look of it too. I think mine's too "patina'd" tho so paint may be the way mine goes. : )

Tara said...

These type of shops really get my creative juices flowing! My home is decorated with so many wonderful finds from flea-market shops... (I feel it is my duty to help the economy in this manner : ) How I would love to visit your space! Your photos are beautiful. The texture of that peeling paint, fabulous! And the treasures you display.... delightful!!!

I'm having a give-away of a glittered "Reach For Your Dreams" friendship wand on my blog, I hope you'll stop by this week!
