Throwback Thursday {She's a Modern Vintage Rock and Roll}

I'm working on a major remodel {my own, this time!} and I am under pressure to select kitchen lighitng. I am drawn to the pendants that have a little bit of an edge...nothing fussy, nothing fancy, not tooooo shiny. Something that will still have an impact and add a layer of character to the space. The silhouette of the ones I've been looking at reminded me of the design board I put together a few years back for one of the coolest gals I've ever known....she's a MODERN VINTAGE ROCK AND ROLL. That's the style I think her personality and home exudes. Retro, Modern, Vintage Chic and Edginess.

-It's eclectic but not junked up. So edit and keep things from feeling too cluttered. It is a little of this and a little of that, but things still stay uncluttered, unfussy and have either clean lines or bold color/texture, with only a few exceptions here and there.
-Shiny objects with bold lines. Don't be afraid to mix metals and styles.
-Statement pieces like gilded gold mirrors and retro/vintage pieces.
-Industrial hints here and there.
-Bold colors, bold patterns as accents.
-Ecclectic different lamps, pillows that don't match one another, etc. Don't be matchy matchy, you want to look like you've acquired and collected or just ended up with all this fabulousness. 

Don't let this look fool you...there is an art to really being able to tell what works and what doesn't with this sort of space.  Fall back on scale and overall tone and like I said, never be too matchy matchy and you'll win with this look.
