A Cape Cod Home to Call Our Own: Mid Century Style Furniture Swoon!!!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all you mommies, soon to be mommies, fur mommies and those trying to become mommies!!! Don't you just love Mother's Day? It seems to always be on the prettiest, most sun shiniest day!!! Unfortunately, my mommy  and I live in different states so I didn't get to see her today (yes, I still call her mommy. Actually I sometimes call her Marmee. You know...From "Little Women"? It stuck when I was little.). But we spent an hour gabbing on the phone so I guess that's better than nothing, eh?

Well, as you know from my Cape Cod post, Honey and I have a plan to move into our own home soon. So, naturally that started me thinking about what kind of decor we want in the new place. It's going to be about 2 years until that happens but who can resist looking at beautiful mid-century furniture? 

Here is what I've found so far: Most of it is not vintage because Honey has been adamant about not putting ALL vintage in the home. She says she doesn't mind retro looking or reproduction furniture though...

Don't you just LOVE this sofa!!!! It's not vintage but it's from a company that specializes in mid-century styled furniture! LOVE!!! The color is fabulous!!!!!!!!!!

What about this vintage Heywood Wakefield dining room set?!?!

I ADORE this Formica dining set! Maybe for the eat in kitchen?

Isn't this coffee table just the absolute most?!?  This one is also from Thrive Furniture.

I am OBSESSED with these reproduction refrigerators! I'm sure you've all heard of Big Chill Appliances. Well... this is DEFINITELY happening in our new place. Honey has already given me the go ahead for it! If I can't afford anything else for the home right away it would be worth it if I had the fridge, oven and cook top!!!!!

Love these Big Chill kitchens!

I'm not sure what we want out of a bedroom yet but if I had my way it would look like something out of this ad!!

So that's what I did all Mother's Day while Honey was having a play date with her Mommy. Wish listing. What about you?  Is your home filled with vintage delights?

I hope your day was filled with love, loved ones and sunshine!!!!

  1. Drooling now! You are sooo good with this stuff! I never heard of Big Chill but I will look from afar. I dont think a 7,000 dollar fridge is in my budget hehee I love your research though-keep doing it-it feels so good to figure out what you want and how you want to step up your home! So happy for you sweets! xox

    1. HA!! I know! Why does a stupid fridge have to be sooooo pretty and soooooooooooooo expensive!!!!!!!!! sigh!! Vision board time!!!

  2. That kitchen, the green one, is to die for!!! Great choices!

  3. Love big chill and hope one day to be able to afford it!The rest of the stuff is great too.Good luck with your home stuff.I'm currently looking to move into a home hopefully by the end of summer.

    1. OOHHH!!! FUN!! I've seen you home browsing on Instagram!!! I can't wait to see what you guys find and move into!!

  4. Seriously awesome furniture choices! I adore that classic formica table, it's so terrific. Neither of my sets of grandparents held onto much of their mid-century furniture, but my maternal grandma still has her super cool formica table and matching chair set, which after she passes (which I hope with all my heart won't be for a super long time!) my mom and aunt said I can have it, as neither of them want it (and I super do!!!).

    I hope you have tons of great luck in finding all of your dream furniture, honey!
