NEST … recycle + color series | by five and one

RECYCLE  +  COLOR SERIES

A nesting series pairing an interior image for inspiration that includes a recycled detail or vintage/reclaimed furnishing + color palette inspiration for paint, textile, and accessories. Images for color palettes may include the work of an artist, a textile, or a natural environment.

I am mixing in more of the NEST portion of Five and One with this series since before staying home with my lovely children my background included Interior Architecture and Design and Furniture Design. I will be focusing on featuring ideas for blending recycled and reclaimed furniture and finishes to complement the modern home. 

This idea for reclaimed wine box drawers may not be ideally functional for the main cabinets in  a busy kitchen but it could work nicely as an accent to your heavy duty working drawers. Maybe in an area to store items you don’t use on a daily basis. This idea could work well by the dining table to store nicer serving pieces and cloth napkins, or perfect in an office area or art space. The combination of metal industrial shelving with the wooden boxes are a great complement.

I chose this artwork  by Alicia Galer because of the bold colorful gestures and it makes me happy on this dreary February day. This technique would also be a great one to show the kids as they start collecting nature this spring to make some bold colorful creations.

If you would like to see more inspiration for reclaimed decor take a look at my NEST | reclaimed decor board on Pinterest and please share any ways you have added reclaimed objects into your home. I would love to hear!

Happy Thursday!

I am mixing in more of the NEST portion of Five and One with this new series, since before staying home with my lovely children my background included Interior Architecture and Design and Furniture Design. I will be focusing on featuring ideas for blending recycled and reclaimed furniture and finishes to complement the modern home. 

I know it has been awhile since I have posted any inspiration for the home. Mostly because my days are spent outdoors with the kiddos, in the garden, or in our own kitchen cooking together. The summer schedule does not allow as much time for blogging but, better yet, more time for family experiences. I wish I could share them all with you but that is just not in the cards at the moment. It is just way too great of a summer to be spending it indoors at a computer.

Since a great amount of my time IS spent in the kitchen I do have an affinity for nicely designed ones. For this recycle + color post I chose a dreamy kitchen with what looks like a wall of reclaimed wood contrasted with a glossy white  finish on the cabinets. The copper accents and lighting blend in nicely along with the vintage stool. A painting like this one by Yolanda Sanchez would add a punch of summer color into this monochromatic glossy white space and the color combo is so refreshing.

Elmwood, located here in Kansas City, is a great resource for reclaimed flooring and paneling. Take a look at their website for more inspiration.

Wishing you all a happy first of May!

This kitchen looks quite inviting and it has a nice mix of vintage and modern touches. Great natural light, reclaimed wooden beams, open floor plan, and a fantastic moving island (which of course you would want locking castors or the kids might decide to take it to another room entirely). What about that whisk light? Here’s a tutorial to make your own. Let me know if you find one and decide to try it- it is a nice touch and absolutely love the idea of reusing an industrial whisk for a light.

The ranunculus flowers on the right are some of my favorites and the mix of vases settled into the wooden crate makes quite a clever arrangement.

Have a lovely start to your May!
