Fun Mid-Century Living & My New Addition

I love this living room from blogger Welcome to Deluxeville. Brightly colored mid-century rooms can sometimes be a bit difficult to pull together (speaking from personal experience), but this room is so inviting. Dreamy Heywood Wakefield tables...
My new addition: The "My Double"dress form made by Dritz. Sorry for the cruddy picture. It was night-time and I was feeling impatient. I love her and can't bear to part with her, although I have no idea where I will put her yet. Her stand was missing, and my husband offered to make one out of copper pipe, which could look pretty cool, but I don't think that project is going to be underway any time soon. I found the dress form at an antique shop in Sparta, TN.

You would love this vintage furniture store in Cleveland that I go to -- the entire upstairs is mid-century modern furniture and decor; it's sooo fun to look through!!

I adore your dress form -- I've been looking for a slightly older one myself and this post inspires me to look a little harder!!

Love that top interior! It makes me feel like I"m looking at a fantastic 50s/60s sitco like Bewitched or something. Your new addition is wonderful - what a clever person who made that! Imaginative!
