Vintage Chic Style Series – No. 5

Hi, sweets.

If there’s one element of my home (and several apartments beforehand) that has remained constant, it’s my undying love for silver metals. Pewter, sterling, silver plate, zinc, tin, natural wrought iron…it all makes my heart sing.

And, I don’t discriminate either. Vintage, antique, and modern pieces have found their way into my home and their coexistence helps to create my own take on vintage chic style.

If you’ve missed it, you can start with No. 1 in the Vintage Chic Style Series HERE

Vintage chic is what I use to describe a style that incorporates vintage, a hint of shabby, French, cottage, and whatever else I fancy. I don’t consider my decor ‘vintage modern’, it’s not shabby enough to be shabby chic, not rustic enough for farmhouse, etc. so I simply refer to it as vintage chic. 

It’s more so just the way the space feels to me.

I put together a slide show to share my favorite metal pieces and how I use them to create a vintage chic ambiance.

I apologize in advance for the lack of music but I didn’t want to risk a suspended video due to copyright infringement. The permissible songs in iMovie just weren’t workin’ for me.

Kind of sounds like I want to marry it, huh? Ha!

I’m curious. Do you see what I see in metal?

What do you find yourself frequently hauling into your own home? 

I’ll be back tomorrow to share Peony Wire Works with you. 
A few of Erin’s lovely chicken wire creations were pictured in my slide show.

Thursday, Donna at Funky Junk Interiors has written an awesome, metal-infused post for you. Gotta love that weathered metal too!

And on Saturday, I’m hosting a “Metal Saturday ” linky party for you to share your own little collections of metal whether it’s shiny, weathered, rustic, faux, vintage, or modern.

I’d love it if you to joined me and grabbed my button to help spread the word!

Thanks for reading.

  1. Love your metal pieces! I share your love for industrial, I hung part of an old windmill on one of my walls.

    This was an awesome slide Jami! I didn’t realize how great your love for metal is :) You do such a wonderful job pairing the metal and laundry…In fact you are converting me to the “white” side(as opposed to the dark,lol!) Love what you said about the strong feminine, to me, you make a perfect blend of masculine and feminine. Can’t wait to see more of this series…and thank you for loving my stuff:)

  3. I don’t care what title you put on your style, to me it’s “simply beautiful”…and your slideshow is pure art!!!!

  4. Awesome photography! Wow. I have your button on my glam bistro chair post…I will be joining in. For me, wire is always catching my eye…and I don’t know why. I love things made out of wire!

    Loved your slide show. That was a great ending with the strong and feminine metal heart! Beautiful!

    Loved your slideshow! Your photography is awesome:)

  7. I too love metals. I love mixing the old and the new. Shiny or aged. Doesn’t matter to me.

  8. Erin says:

    Oh, how lovely, Jami! I didn’t realize the extent of metals in your home, but you really do give them all a wonderfully feminine feel by pairing them with delicate fabrics. This is inspiring me to utilize more metal accents around my house–especially since there’s so much wood in my log home. :) I’ve always been a silver/white gold girl when it comes to jewelry and recently found a couple of thrifty tarnished silver-plated trays that I just love. Really enjoying this series! :)

    Take care,

  9. Jami,

    I Loved the video !
    It is full of visual delights.
    Black & white was a good choice and I didn’t need music with all the sparks of inspiration going off in my imagination !
    Thank you !

thank you for taking a minute to write...
