Welcome to another "My Vintage Pad" Home Tour & Interview here at Vintage Indie. Please help me send a warm welcome to Chiara Alberetti, Prop Stylist from Brooklyn, NY.
What is your favorite part of each room (each one that you share with us)?
My favorite part of my kitchen is all the pretty little dishes, glasses, spoons, cups and saucers that I've collected over the years. My FAVORITE little cup with the blue Greek Key design was $1.00 at a flea market in Pennsylvania.
In the living room, I love this embroidered round pillow. The colors are wonderful. Another flea market find. I also love this little children's desk chair ($8.00! Pennsylvania) that Jackson likes to sit in and read his books.
In my baby boy Jackson's room, I painted this vintage chair one shade different from his walls.
I love my painted white tree lamps (I got a pair of them in a thrift store) and this vintage bird print. I also love my mom's old jelly cabinet that I painted black (used to be maroon) where I store all my shirts and pants, for lack of closet space.
My favorite part of the bathroom is all the vintage bird prints clustered together on one wall. Every time I find a new one, I cram it in somewhere.
Where do you find inspiration for decorating your home?
My favorite decorating magazine is Domino, and there are so many great design and decorating blogs out there.
How do vintage things play a role in your room/home?
They're everywhere! There's so much beautiful, charming, and well-made stuff already in the world, I rarely am compelled to purchase anything new for my home. Vintage things add so much personality.
Any advice on creating your look?
I know it's been said before, but let it happen over time, with things and pieces that you really love. I truly believe that if you love it, you can make it work with other things you love.
