High Point Wrap Up

Wow, where does the time go? We’ve been so busy here at Vintage Scout, that it’s been almost a month already since we attended the High Point Furniture Market. Sarah and I came back inspired by all the wonderful new things we saw. Let me share a little of it with you.Bowl

Brass is back whether you want to believe it or not. I love it! It’s not the tacky brass you’re remembering from cheap hardware and light fixtures. Lee_Dining_Chair

The details on this Lee dining chair are fabulous.Lee-Stools

I fell in love with Mitchell Black and their modern way of displaying art. Stanley

Stanley’s new collection inspired by midcentury modern is fantastic! You’ll see brass again here in the desk base.Vanguard-Stool

It was our first time visiting the Vanguard showroom and we were not disappointed.Wearstler-Vis-Comf

If you follow along on Instagram you saw we met Kelly Wearstler. She was at market promoting her new line of lighting and it is amazing! It will be available next summer, and yes, you see brass again.

There was so much more! I always feel like attending market is so important as a designer. It keeps our interiors fresh and evolving. It is motivating and inspiring. It is so important to know what resources are available as each client’s style and taste is different. If you’d like to update your space with the newest and coolest, give us a call- we’d love in inject your home with some of what we saw and experienced.

Think Pink

I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since High Point market and I haven’t even filled you in on what I took away as incoming trends. The consensus among designers was that it was a really good market. I think the reason is that there was color, color, and more color! After several seasons of “gray being the new black”, I know I for one, am excited to see some bright yet approachable colors in the next few seasons. The color that really stood out for me in all elements was PINK.

Pillows, walls, rugs, lighting, accessories, artwork and more!

So what are your thoughts on pink? Would you go for a pink wall covering in a room other than a girls’ room? I think pink can be very sophisticated and flattering when the right tone is used and in the right context. If you think you want to go pink, give me a call. I’d love to find the right place for it in your home.

What’s New In The Store

Hi everyone. I got back from Chicago last night after a fun whirlwind of a trip. I opened the store this morning and what a treat! We got some new things in while I was gone. Check it out:

We’ve had vintage jewelry before, but this is our first venture into something new. These fun sealife-themed cuff bracelets are perfect for summer. Pastel pink, green, and blue, there are six different styles. They are only $13.50, so you can get one of each color.

Here’s a great way to infuse some color into your home- these mosaic chevron frames are fresh! They hold a 4×6 photo and are only $28. Available in blue, orange, red, and green. In the background you can see the new yarn vases. The matte porcelain finish perfectly shows off any springtime bloom you cut and bring into your home. Those come in three different sizes ranging in price from $12.50 – $21.50

Ooooh la la, I LOVE these gold urchins! Fun just to set on a coffee table or bookshelf, or they can be hung on the wall. Group a bunch of them together for a unique wall sculpture. Small, medium, and large available and the price is great: $22, $25, $35, respectively.

Vintage Scout is your go-to store for good frames. We’ve got a couple of styles of this unique equestrian style frame. Fits a 4×6 snapshot and is priced at $32.

Stop in soon, these goodies are sure to go quickly. We’re getting new stuff almost every week, so if you haven’t made a recent visit to Vintage Scout, you’ll want to see what’s new. We’ll try to get these things listed in our online store as well, so those of you outside the Dayton area can get the Scout look too. If you see something we don’t have in the online store, give us a call 937.312.9461 or email info@vintagescout.com and we can certainly ship it to you.
