EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN OLIOHOP

 Today's issue of Monday Mashup is a fun one.

 I've been seeing a wonderful combination of Fashion+Decor in many design markets.  This year Highpoint Market has a great focus on fashion the week of October 13-18th. 

With my degree in Apparel Design, I am more than just a little excited about the emphasis on Fashion+Decor.  The apparel and decor industry really do influence each other each year in a circular "fashion".

This month's OlioHop collaboration (which I have been talking about for the past week) is focused on Fashion+Decor as well.  
So without further ado... 



I can hardly resist the timeless brilliance of Christion Dior and the legend of Marilyn Monroe.  Over time designs, fashions, styles and colors will always come back around.



Window shopping with Fashion+Decor. 


A department store window with Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, featuring Layla Grayce and vintage apparel from Posh Girl Vintage.

When designing a room I try to combine the old and new using  vintage, flea market finds and perhaps inherited antiques.  Combine these with new or custom pieces to bring the decades together in a single beautiful space.


A lovely collage of aged items, furniture and decorative pieces.




New, fresh tables and chairs mixed with accents for the home.




A pairing in the Paint Gallery of Fashion+Decor.
Dior makeup, revolutionary products of glamorous colors.
Bring new life to old furniture.  Recycle, upcycle, refinish, refurbish, call it what you will.  Everything Old Is New Again with a finish of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint TM.




Headgear for all.  Regardless if you're going to church or adding a little something extra to a lamp base its always in style to try and make a statement.
It's the little details that can top off your look.


Influences throughout the years always find their way back into design.  So many memorable icons, so much joy and so many memories.

    1. How can you not resist vintage & glamour, right? I have a few other Hollywood icons waiting in the wings for more boards, two more in fact. I will add Grace Kelly to the list. Thank you!

One elemnt in particular that caught my eye on your A-MAZING boards was the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!! I so want to give that a try for one of my thruft finds to refinish! Refreshing color palettes used - reminds my of an OLD FASHION ice cream parlor! I'm with Robin - LOVE the HEADGEAR board - How FUN!!

So easy, apply it to out door furniture with no sealer and the sun bakes it right in. I will be posting on it all week. Shades Of Amber ships all over the United States.

    1. It's almost impossible to not like any vintage color palette. The wall paper is just beautiful, I agree. Thank you so much Julia, I have had so much fun. :D

  7. Your "Headgear" board is SENSATIONAL! Lampshades do look quite like fancy hats, don't they? Great Olioboards!

    1. Lesley, thank you so much! I did just switch it out, planning on using the hats for something else to come to the site. That board just came together so well, I was shocked. ;)

  9. My favorite board is definitely the head gear, so incredibly cute. I just bought myself a very fancy hat when I visited Niagara on the Lake last weekend. Love it! Love all the pastels and eclectic mix of old, new, maybe borrowed and definitely new =)

  10. Jane, this post is fabulous. I love the mix of romantic nostalgia mixed with the new style of romance. Your boards are delightful too. I love the lamps and bonnets. You are an inspiration.

  12. Jane, From everyone on the Olioboard team, thank you for TRULY going above and beyond in putting together your #OlioHop post! It is just too wonderful for words and I know, with High Point Market coming up this week, everyone there will enjoy seeing it given their Fashion + Furniture theme!!

    Personally speaking,my mother's name is Marilyn and she adored Marilyn Monroe. I am going to share your post with her since she is always wondering why I am always talking about Olioboard. This will be a great post for her to *get* it and one that she can relate to.

    My favorite item on the whole post is the welcome mat with the dog bite out of the side. I've never seen that before and just LOVE it! I have a special thing for welcome mats..and change mine out all the time. Don't ask me why...

    I also want to point out that your readers might like the new *velvet* nail polish that Oprah's beauty editor was waxing poetic about in the latest issue of OPRAH magazine. Anyone who loves vintage glam would probably like that. It's at Sephora.

    Thanks again, Jane, and have a great day!
