Friday Finds--decor8

I am fairly domestic, and a blog I came across a long time ago is decor8. I love the design ideas that come out of this blog, and often save posts for future reference.

I have a lot of family heirlooms laying around--200 year old paintings, a 200 year old dictionary, family silver, chests, etc. I still have yet to invest money into really decorating with them, but when I saw decor8's post on Caroline Keith of C.Keith Vintage, it showed me just how well vintage can live with modern. Here are some inspirational images (originally from Country Living Magazine):



Another find on decor8 was this post on Doilies. I have a lot of vintage lace laying around, so this might inspire some ideas about how to re-use it.

Doilies and lace as decorations as seen at CAMP.

Upcycling doilies into vases as seen on Sweet Paul.

Contemporary jewelry with doily and lace impressions by Elissa Frankino.
