Where Nostalgia and Modernity Live

The mix of old and new, modern and classic, streamlined and elegant is exactly what I'd like to eventually like to achieve in my own home. These spaces, photographed by Dylan Thomas (as seen on Desire to Inspire) walk that precarious line and do so quite nicely.

I can almost see story here...a story of found objects and pop culture, a story of a whimsical nature where worlds don't collide but rather fuse into a well designed, thought out environment.

Wow, that last room is a girly girl's paradise. I can just imagine soaking in a bubble bath there. Sigh.

I like the second photo... the painted plank floor, the Louis XV chair and the suggestion in the mirror.

wow wow. i love them all - i've really been in this sort of mood recently! except for that pink chair - makes my eye twitch! ha ha! and yes, that huge mirror is to die for. I don't think it would fit in my tiny house though!

I love all of these details. I love that the design of each photo initially appears to be quite simple but in reality as you say, there is a story to tell.

What amazing photography, as well.

How fun is that pink chair? I'd never have the nerve to purchase one like that, but I do love how it pops!

That's such a tough combo to pull off, but these are great examples.

What a cool name, too.
