Dita's Library


If you love vintage and you like art deco, I
definitely recommend you pick up the February 2011 InStyle magazine featuring Miss Dita Von Teese's picture-perfect old Hollywood style home. Her luscious art deco library makes me swoon. Isn't it gorgeous and sumptuous? Which part do you like most? I'm leaning on the roman shades and lamp.

  2. Gorgeous library! She just guest starred on CSI the other night. She's a lovely girl, but not sure about her acting. =O)

    I was just telling Wendy (Caribousmom) that I can't wait to get my bookshelves organized here at the new apartment so I can share them with everyone. My new blog, A Huge Library in a Small Apartment, will house my entire library catalog along with pics of all my shelves. I'm hoping to get started on it in the next couple of weeks.

  7. Okay, besides the somewhat risque picture (I had forgotten for a moment what she's known for, lol), I could totally imagine this being your home. It totally fits your style! I love it! Especially that pink kitchen! Besides the library and of course the car, it's the kitchen that's so swank. Just perfect. Thanks for sharing, that was delightful!

  9. Love Dita! I wish I'd seen her on CSI. Didn't know she was on till late. I would totally want to get ready in the morning using that dressing table! The pink kitchen is awesome. The whole house is gorgeous. Definitely a dream house in Hollywood.

  14. Walltowall: *smile* A shoe girl? My mama is one too :)

    Michelle:
    1. O really? I get that impession too.

    1. LOL
    2. I know right? Minus the knick knacks and stuffed animals (I'm a minimalist) I love the fabrics, furniture, walls, and floors. *le sigh* Vintage makes my heart soar. That pink kitchen made me oooo and ahhhh. O and that car! Mr. Whimsy asked me the other day if we were rich what car I would want. My response: "When I'm a baller - I roll strictly vintage." Cars from the 20s and 40s make me skip a beat.

    Julie: Right? *sigh* Her house is what mine will look like when I win the lotto. ;)

    Renee Ann: I have one right now but I'm still working on piecing it together :)

    Melissa: Amen my friend *high five*

    Katie: Yes you do! :) Isn't InStyle awesome?
