It's not easy creating a cohesive look with vintage. So when we saw a couple of photos from etsy seller April of WhiteApple on the Storque, we had to find more. This space embraces maximalism — a little Victorian grandma with a twist. Everything has been thrifted, then April works her magic with paint and new fabric. April frequently uses her space as a photographic backdrop for her handmade hats, capes and jewelry, which she then sells on etsy. We are total fans of any space that so perfectly expresses the aesthetic of its owner.

1 April has done a fantastic job making this space her own.

2 All the furniture pieces were thrift store finds. The coffee table with its little brass feet was only $15.

3 The centerpiece of the parlor is the landscape painting that April found in the basement of her local Salvation Army. The stretcher was broken and someone had drawn a UFO in the top left corner, but April was smitten. After bargaining for a better price, she took it home, fixed it up and found a frame that fit perfectly.

4 The chairs were previously brown with speckles before April repainted them and reupholstered.

6 A rental bathroom can be one of the most difficult places to decorate. After all, you can't change the furntiture! April used the tiles as inspiration for her accent color. She painted the ceiling blue, then painted this beautiful wavy design as an accent.

8 A nautical themed gallery wall.
