Find to Design: Washington, D.C.

Our Capital is crawling with great finds. Nothing in this post is over $120. I'm serious. I may have to make a trip up to visit Abe Lincoln and scout a few Craigslist finds. But until then, here are some of my favorites found in DC:

This white Pottery Barn dresser is amazing. For $120, you really can't beat it. This dresser would look amazing against a bold wall like the peacock blue one in the inspiration. Although our find doesn't have the wood detailing of the inspiration piece, it does come with the modern hardware, an added bonus.

A good bar stool is hard to come by these days. This pair of mid century modern Tiki Arthur Umanoff swivel bar stools, however, is a keeper. Although the inspiration photo doesn't feature a pair of bar stools that look like our finds, I can see the stools working perfectly in there. The all white floors and cabinets and the light cowhide rug make the space feel super open and bright. There are accents of wood in the accessories and kitchen nook chairs, and I think pulling in that natural element to the bar area would work perfectly!

Oh how I love a beautiful campaign end table. Our find is a gorgeous natural wood, so painting it wouldn't be necessary. Campaign dressers/end tables are a modern way to spruce up your bedside. Topped with a gorgeous lamp, a couple prints, and a vase of flowers, you have a gorgeously styled vignette.

Let me first say, I could live in that inspiration photo. I love the gallery wall of vintage water prints, the old hardwood floors, and the bright light. I also love the way the designer seamlessly blended new and old, modern and vintage. Our find would be an awesome addition to a room that needs a pop of color and wants a vintage element. They are retro and fun and I adore them!
