June’s First Fiesta! || A Fun Mexican Bash @ The Vault

June’s First Fiesta! || A Fun Mexican Bash @ The Vault

A little over a month ago, June turned one and we decided to throw her an over-the-top Mexican bash for her very first fiesta!! This day was so much fun for us– not only did we get to celebrate my June Bug, but we hosted our first big event at The Vault! For décor, we knew we wanted to do something cheery and bright, so we centered the celebration around Mexican pom poms and cacti because that spells fun and June LOVES Mexican food. Desert 2 District created a cacti backdrop with her own handmade stamps. It. was. rad.  For the lounge furniture, we selected midcentury modern bright pieces for June to play on along with her own mini rattan chair. Seeing her little smile fills my heart, and we are so grateful to all the amazing friendors who helped to make this party such a blast for her. We’re so excited to finally get to share these fun photos with you, and be sure to check out the whole story on 100 Layer Cake-let!

Austin + Justin || A Timeless June Wedding in Arlington, VA

Austin + Justin || A Timeless June Wedding in Arlington, VA

We are so excited to share these pics with you from one of our couple’s STUNNING June wedding in Arlington, VA! Austin + Justin got married on their family’s property, so they were really working with a blank canvas! In the gorgeous photos below, you’ll see everything from our farm tables to our bars to our chairs to our upholstered seating— they got it all! With the help of their planners and stylists at Engaging Affairs and Heirloom DC, Austin + Justin’s big day was simultaneously chic, romantic, elegant, and down to earth! By working with a neutral color palette and accenting with timeless gold details, they were able to create something that will never go out of style! Basically, their wedding looks like it’s straight out of the pages of a Martha Stewart magazine, so, without further ado… enjoy!

All About Plates || Something Vintage Rentals x Carthage Co.

All About Plates || Something Vintage Rentals x Carthage Co.

We are so pumped to announce our new collaboration with Carthage Co.!! This has been in the works for a while now, and we’re so excited to bring you some incredible new dinnerware sets. Watch out tabletops, these beauties are coming your way! We’ve been on the hunt for the perfect plates for ages now, and we ultimately chose these plates because of their amazing colors and how they coordinate with our Bloomington plate collection and teak vintage plates. We cannot express enough how freakin’ excited we are!! All of the colors are somehow modern and timeless and we can’t wait to see what kind of table settings our awesome clients will come up with. One more reason I really love Carthage? All of these plates are made in Tunisia– I spent some time in Tunisia, studied Arabic for 12 years, and earned my MA in Islamic Studies. Basically, this collaboration seemed to fuse my past and current passions perfectly!

Well-Curated Home Staging for Washington DC and Beyond || Something Vintage Rentals

Do you ever wish you could take our rentals home? Well, now you can! We are super excited to announce that we are officially offering a selection of our rentals for home staging! Our handmade and vintage pieces are the perfect way to make your property stand out and maximize your selling price. Unique pieces like our handmade and vintage furniture create well-curated spaces and realllllly help potential buyers to envision themselves living there. It’s not that we don’t like normal staging furniture, but adding our one-of-a-kind upholstered pieces, tables, and decor will definitely elevate your property to buyers!

Since I’m surrounded by our collection of pretty on a daily basis, when my hubby and I put our home in Park View in Washington DC on the market last December, staging it with our pieces was a no brainer! Incorporating our sofas and decor made a huge difference, and I am so so sure that it helped us get a higher selling price than it would have otherwise. If you want to get the most bang for your buck, we cannot recommend staging enough. So, take a look and browse our collection of pretty! All prices online are for daily rentals, but if you want a longer-term rental for home staging, please inquire and we can give you a quote and let you know which pieces in our collection are available for long term rentals. We can’t wait for you to see our pieces work their magic in your home!
