Chairish Design by Janeane Pittman Interior Design

I was honored when I was contacted by Chairish to create a design based on select pieces from their curated collections of pre-loved furnishings and decor.  Using vintage items in a new and creative way to make a unique space is something I just love to do and Chairish is always on my list of vendors to check out when I am creating a design for a client.

When I opened the vintage collection they sent me, the first two things that caught my eye was a Golden Velour Three Seat Sofa and a Vintage Brass Lamp in Glossy Midnight Blue.  The sofa has wonderful sweeping lines across the back and arms and a color I knew that I could work off of.  And the lamp, well, I just love a good pillar lamp with unusual finishes.

That golden hue spurred on a color palette of gold, pink, and turquoise with touches of black and white for impact.  Mixing in modern elements like iron and marble side tables and an acrylic and brass cocktail table, along side the vintage pieces, it elevates the design to something truly special.  I even added in a low tufted footstool to act as a dog bed because I am always finding that most of my clients have one in the family.

Overall, the nature of this room is whimsical and dramatic with a rug, yes a rug, on the wall to act as a backdrop to an ornately framed mirror.  And pillows, lots and lots of pillows.  All the different textures and patterns play off of each other making the space lively and spirited.  This design also incorporates a touch of bohemian and ethnic flair contrasting against contemporary styles.

If you are interested in having a space in your home done with a vintage modern flair, I would love to create a one-of-a-kind look for you and your family to incorporate your lifestyle.  Please email me at janeane@janeanepittman.com or send me a comment on this post so we can set up a time to chat.  For more information on my services, please visit my web site at janeanepittman.com.

Heywood Wakefield Dream

Heywood Wakefield Dream
Heywood Wakefield Dream by janeane-pittman featuring india home decor
I am not sure how it happens, but I seem to always go in spurts of writing blog posts constantly to them being far and few between.  Well, my lack of writing has not been due to not having anything to say, but rather I have been super busy.  After a long day of souring the county for items for my shop yesterday, I got a call saying that my mother was admitted to the hospital.  Thankfully she is in good spirits as I visited with her and my dad last evening, but it sure reeked havoc on my sleep last night.  I am completely exhausted, but I know that God will see me though.

Now onto the design stuff with a client project I am working on.  I have titled the room the Heywood Wakefield Dream.  The above concept board features midcentury modern style with a modern twist.  The colors are so bright and vibrant, just the way I like it.  I just completed refinishing two tables for this nostalgic room that you may have seen on my Instagram.

I have to give kudos to ebay vendor needful_useful_things for the reproduction wheat refinishing stain for vintage Haywood Wakefield.  His instructions were impeccable and the product, well, amazing.  Now as soon as I showed this picture to my client, she sprung the news on me that she had another Heywood Wakefield table that was buried under a day bed that she wanted to have me refinish.


Well, that is it for today and I can’t wait to keep you posted on this rooms progress.  Also, a big thanks to the staff at West Elm South Coast Plaza for helping me out with the sofa and chair order.  Check out my Polyvore set to get any of the details.

The Baskets are on the Wall

For a while now I have been collecting baskets and basket trays from Goodwill to create a gallery wall in my hall.  This blank wall has been staring at me for years and it was high time I did something.  But not just anything.  I wanted something that looked collected and curated over time and that is exactly what this project has turned out to be.  It has taken me quite a while to collect just the right baskets I wanted to showcase.

Hallway before baskets on the wall

Here is the view of the blank wall in the hall from the living room going down to the bedrooms.

And here is the view from the end of the hall looking back at the living room.  It’s so bare!

Baskets on WallAfter laying the baskets out on the floor, I arranged the perfect way to hang them.  I love how they flow with the living room and entry way.  They give the hallway a more inviting look as if to say, “Come down here too!”

I also love all the different shapes, sizes, colors, & textures each of the baskets have.  It fills the gap between the hall closet and hall bath nicely.

I was also lucky enough to find that white one with a mirror that I just love.  The dimension this basket gallery gives a long, flat, & narrow space is just wonderful.

Baskets on WallI only spent around $25 total for this project, got priceless character, and was able to repurpose.  Thank you Goodwill!  #FindTheGood

The Benefits of Purchasing Secondhand Event at Sparrow's Nest Consignment

I am “talking interior design” this upcoming Saturday on one of my favorite topics: shopping secondhand.  Excited, nervous, giddy, nauseous, are just some of the feelings I have been experiencing as the date approaches.  If you are in the Orange County area, I would love to have you come out to Sparrow’s Nest Consignment in Huntington Beach on July 19th at 2:00 pm to learn about how to incorporate vintage pieces into your homes decor.  I did a post on the shop a little bit ago.

On the business front, I am working on some new adventures.  Being an independent designer can be challenging in both a good and bad way.  It has been a journey of ups and downs and is still going.  God has been my strength through times of struggle and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for me as my business grows.

I am in the process of building a new website that is proving to take me longer than I expected to complete.  It has made me re-evaluate my “about me” page.  For some reason when I usually write, it just flows, but when it comes to composing a few paragraphs for this particular page, it just is not sounding authentic.  Pray for me as I work on this so I can convey what I would like to potential clients.  New services are also on the horizon, so be on the lookout.

Thank you to my readers, clients, family, & friends that have given me support since I first started this adventure.  You are all gifts from God.

Until next time,
