Meet & Greet - Meet Me in Philadelphia

Meet Ashley! Isn't she adorable, along with her fantastic living room. I love the midcentury feel to it. I am excited to share her blog, Meet Me in Philadelphia with you because she has fantastic taste and great thrifty ideas. 
I was first drawn to Ashley's taste in decor,then finding we both have a love for textiles! She has a fantastic way of layering textiles and textures to make her decor feel like it was pieced over time. There is a certain layed back yet chic feel to her style that I admire.

I'm going to jump right in with some pictures of her home. These are some of my fav's.

Eye Candy!

So, we can see she is excellent at decorating, but she is also good at getting it done on a budget!
Since I have been following Ashley, I have been inspired by some of her DIY's.

Look at this great pagoda side table she found at an auction. Very unique piece with loads of character.

A little spray paint....

Viola! Ashley picked an amazing blue and now the fun table is a chic piece of art! To see her full post about this fun find go here.

 This project really showed her imagination when she started with this inspiration photo of a side table from West Elm, by Stray Dog Design. It costs a pretty penny, so....

She paper mached her own!

Look how amazing and similar it turned out! There are obviously many steps to the process I am leaving out. To see the total transformation go here.

I hope you enjoyed meeting another talented woman! If you haven't yet , go visit her blog. Oh, and don't forget to wish her best of luck. She is getting married this Saturday! Congrat's Ashley, can't wait to see pictures. Have a fantastic honeymoon in Greece!
