decor addiction

First things first, we have a lot of decor addictions here at vavabode. One of my biggest obsessions over the past several years are vintage, oil painting portraits. Just one portrait can make the most stunning impact in a room. It doesn’t matter if the edges and paint are worn, in fact, an aged piece has even more attraction than that of one that is perfect. And, I don’t need to know who the person is, I can just imagine their life story with every stroke of the brush. So we brainstormed here at vavabode —  rather than sell off our beloved collection, we decided it would be way cool to apply our vintage portraits to fabric and make a series of portrait pillows — PS: we love art that is functional.

  1. Check out this welcoming sitting area. The cream + black with natural wood and rope elements make the old world portrait right at home. Image Elements of Style.

  2. I’m envious of this dining room. Modern simplicity meets old world portraits. All eyes are on you in this dining room. — you’ll never eat alone.

  3. Why not embellish your powder room with not just one, but two fabulous portraits. Oh, how I’d feel extra special powdering my nose in front of these beauties.  Rue Magazine

  4. Gray Benko100% Style. Period.

  5. Our pillows are feather filled to make them extra comfy and beautifully edged with coordinating velvet. Each pillow is handmade right here in our studio.

  1. inspiration: We love Circa Lighting's ad since it showcases their lighting fixture beautifully. At the same time it gives us the perfect empty canvas -- an opportunity to add a piece of artwork that gives this space a little extra "wow".

  2. The cream-colored paint throughout the room leaves our designers with so many options. Traditional molding, a simple wooden chair and a light fixture that glows in a satin finish -- Dreamy! We're thinking, big, bold flora will do the trick!

  3. A pop of magnified Azaleas make this traditional space a little more contemporary but the old-world illustration keeps with the traditional trim. 

  4. Thinking outside the box. We went bold. Fuchsia, red, and pink create a statement that surely shakes up this neutral canvas.

  5. full on nature. The wooden chair was the inspiration for this rendering. an all around earthy feel with rich greenery. No watering necessary.
