Oakland Inspiration!

I instantly fell for the living room of Interior Designer, Sheri Sheridan's Oakland home.  Her entire home is a perfect example of how to mix cool vintage pieces with new items from big box stores.  And the Dalmatian on the floor...presh!  
A vintage chair is reupholstered and paired with a CB2 "City Slicker" table.  
Love the tufting on the bench! 
You just can't go wrong with a mid-century Saarinen table!  I love it paired with the mis-matched chairs. 
Sheri mixed Crate and Barrel dinnerware with fabulous vintage Waterford china.
A phone from Pottery Barn blends perfectly with her flea market finds.

I love how she wasn't afraid to put her 19th century original Beaux-Arts illustrations in $20 frames from Michael's.  
The fabulous mirrored headboard is actually four packs of mirror tiles from Ikea at just $4.99 a pop - ingenious!
