Las Vidalas


Are you prepared for more gorgeousness than any one human being can handle in one sitting? I hope so, because I'm about to drop it on ya'. I don't know why I haven't shared these with you before now.  Maybe I needed to spend a few months obsessing over them before I was ready to talk about them in all of their shabby, romantic and perfectly styled glory.
I found them originally when I was hunting down the owner of a home I had seen pictures of here and there. The feature in the Spanish language magazine led me to their blog Las Vidalas where they list the amazing pictures of these hand painted furniture pieces.
So here's what I can tell you- Two sisters by the names of Ana and Consuelo Vidal gather these old and forgotten furniture pieces and give them new life by hand painting them in vibrant colors with scenes of flowers and birds.  Sadly, they are all the way in Buenos Aires,  Argentina so I won't be able to stalk any of their work in person any time soon.  Bummer.  We will have to settle for drooling over these images over the inter-webs.  I had a heck of a time narrowing down which pics to share with ya'll because each piece is more drool worthy than the last.  I may even have gone a little overboard, as I do. See for yourself...





And as if the furniture and fabulous styling wasn't enough to completely blow my mind... Consuelo apparently paints these tropical murals and paintings as well. Oh! All of this is just speaks to my soul so much, I can hardly handle it. You? There, your day was just elevated to an automatic 11 out of 10. You. Are Welcome.
