Outdoor Seafood Sign Capturing Vintage Fun

Ahhh... summers by the ocean. There's just something about summertime by the water -- the smells, the sounds, the feeling. I just want to capture it for a moment and hold it tight. As a result, my kitchen is designed around just that feeling. I'm always on the lookout for great finds that capture that spirit.

I love this outdoor seafood sign that I discovered at Ballard Designs. The vintage inspired print was designed by contemporary artist BJ Schonberg to capture the spirit of mid-century advertising styles.

Available in two sizes and priced between $80 - $160.

Design Within Reach: Industrial House Numbers

It's the boys first week of summer vacation and we've been busily working on outdoor projects. During our frontyard cleanup, I noticed that the peal-and-stick house numbers that were on the mailbox when we moved in had started to un-peal-and-stick. I decided it was time to replace them (and the mailbox too!)

In my search, I found these gorgeous numbers available at Design Within Reach.

The Industrial House Numbers were created by designer Erik Spiekermann with a very distinct, clean, aestetic and modern design. They were inspired by metal stencils where the numbers themselves are cut away from metal.

Currently on sale for $9.99 per number.
