It's my 100th Posting!

 I know it has taken me a while, but I have finally written my 100th post! I feel like I have come a long way and I am so excited about the road ahead. I plan on blogging more and commenting on all of your blogs more often as well. Keep on the look out for more great things from The Post Script in the weeks and months to come!
Best Wishes,

Beyond Bold or Beautifully Brilliant?

I know most people are prone to neutrals and playing it safe. But sometimes, bursts of color can be so confidently gorgeous. These bright spaces seem like they were just born this way to me! I mean c'mon, everyone can paint beige all over their walls and use builder grade cabinets, but where is the fun in that? You want a designer look? Then you are going to have to live a little! 

Of course you can tone it down some...but you can't deny these spaces make a statement. Would you embrace bold color on your walls or run and hide?
Im thinking of going bold with color myself... but on the ceiling :) Now that's a whole other post!

Vintage Goods for Your Home

Substantially Light

I started noticing a trend of interior images I have been pinning lately. These large, yet substantial pendant light fixtures. I love how their size and scale gives off a magnificent presence but their transparency translates into lightness. This is perfect for making a statement with out overwhelming. Beautiful aren't they?

Ever So Slightly {o b s e s s e d}

I recently started going on thrifting adventures quite regularly.  I have always had a love for things retro and I have now found a love for the search of vintage home goods. On my hunts I have found MCM consoles, lamps, and most commonly dish ware.  It is with the latter that I have come borderline obsessed.  Look at some of my wonderful finds...

Preparing to do a Photo Wall


I have been working on some projects over the last couple of months to be displayed on a wall in our den that I have recently emptied of its photo frames in perpetration of its "destiny" to become a photo/art wall. Now that all of my projects are completed, its time to do the installation. Ah, I wish it were that easy. If you want something done right... you have got to prepare, a lesson that it took me a long time to learn. So this afternoon it'll be me, a ruler, level, straight edge, a pencil, some craft paper and all of my work. Here are some great photo walls to stare at until I can show off mine!

the end. 

A busy, busy day.

This is what my coffee table looks like this morning. Im working on a little project that is going to take me a long time but I love working on these little artistic endeavors. Being creative makes me so happy and its been a long time coming! Can't wait to show you the finished project soon!

The Long Forgotten Snow

Well, as I was saying last night, it finally snowed for the first time this winter in Greensboro. I awoke this morning to my room glowing with a light I knew could only come from that special way the sun reflects off a yard a freshly fallen snow.
When I pulled back the curtains from our floor to ceiling wall of windows in our living room, which over looks our wooded back yard, I was greeted by the sun shining through the trees and onto the glistening snow. Simply Beautiful.

Of course the drive way and roads were completely melted.

But the yards were still blanketed.

 I love how snow piles up...its so crisp and soft. It makes everything so pretty and gives new perspectives.

The dogs were loving it too... even little Nora who is so small. I wish I could have stayed home and played with them in it today. But at least I captured this special winter's morning with a few photos.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let it Snow.

Its February 19. And tonight, for the first time this year (well winter period), we got snow! It has barely been cold enough for a coat. I really didnt think it was going to happen, but alas, it is actually coming down! Now if I didn't have to go to work tomorrow, this would just be perfect! :)

Mid Century Illustrations

I don't think it's any mystery that I LOVE love love Mid Century Modern Design. Recently, thanks to Pinterest, I have discovered some amazing renderings of fabulous MCM designs and interiors. I can not get enough of these works of art. Not only are they capturing the history and importance of this era but they are truly gems themselves. Gorgeous work. I need a book of these...I could seriously look at them all day. This design era amazes me. I love everything about it!

Please head over to Wanken to view more of these beautiful renderings.

Tough & Cold Industrial meets Soft & Warm Feminine!

When I spotted this image on Pinterest, it really grabbed my attention. Im not much of a pink girl, but Im all about some contrast. This interior, in itself, is very industrial, raw, and some what cold. Full of various wooden textures, as well as those of metallic, brick and concrete. However the added elements are not those that one might to expect to find in this type of interior. 

 Tones of Pink, soft fur, shiny lacquer, and sparkling crystals shine against the clean slate of this interior. 

Gorgeous right?!

LOVE this Fridge...the pink looks perfect on this retro model.

domino, domino, wherefore art thou domino?

Don't we all miss domino, that perfectly wonderful magazine of decorating? I recently received the book from my sweet husband. If you don't have it, you really need it! I cant put it down! Tons of fascinating facts, ideas, and images too! 
Well as if it doesn't get better than this, miraculously, domino announced on Tuesday that they will be coming out with domino quick fixes, hitting the stands on April 17th! i.can't.wait!

Sometimes you just have to do...

I love this quote...I needed to be reminded of this a few days ago so I created this inspirational graphic. I always have so many ideas, things I want to accomplish in life but always seem to be waiting. Waiting for perfect timing, circumstances, and money. Well, quite frankly, Im tired of waiting. Im ready to start doing. I know it won't happen over night, but Im getting started today! Ill fill ya in on more later!
Best Wishes!
