The kitsch life in Milwaukee
This past weekend I was hosted by my good friend Rebecca R. in Wauwatosa, WI, which is a charming little suburb outside of Milwaukee. Her neighborhood is populated with arts-and-crafts style bungalows and mid-century modern ranch houses. Her apartment is in the converted attic of a bungalow, and she has done an impeccable job of decorating on a budget. Her style is pretty kitsch, and she has a lot of collections, however, she keeps them organized, with space around and between items, and also keeps an eye on proportion.
Great shape and color on this Ikea Couch. I was regaled by her husband of the harrowing tale of finding that particular couch and the hunt for that particular color slipcover on Ebay. I wish I were that persistent! (With my interior design intentions as well as my husband.)
Thanks for letting me share your home, Rebecca!
And finally, on a completely unrelated note, I leave you with this photo of the American Eagle roller coaster at Six Flags Great America, which I passed on my way back from Milwaukee. I only post it because “Spiderwebs” by No Doubt was playing on the radio as I passed. I kid you not!
