Yeehaw, mid-century *modern* and *modest*

The retro decorating gods -- and I -- thank you. Photo by Erica Berger, thanks, E.

Wednesday night update:
Retro Renovation was one of 6 finalists in Apartment Therapy’s contest to choose the favorite home-design blog of 2009. Voting is now closed, and it looks like Remodelista is the winner, followed by Young House Love, and Decor8. Retro Renovation finished 4th — a fantastic outcome, in my mind, considering the nature of the blog, which is outside the mainstream, mass-market. I’ll do a follow up post after AT makes it all final, which they say is tomorrow night. So look for my official thank-you Friday morning. Meanwhile, my very sincere thanks to everyone who #1, voted us into the finals, and #2 then helped us make this great showing for mid-century *modern* and *modest* alike. xoxo pam

    Awesome, Pam! Congratulations on #4…but you’ll always be #1 to us!
    Let me know when you want to go to Osgoods………. I’m always up for looking at fabric.

      Thank you, Cindy and Gretchen! I will do a formal note when results are final (late tomorrow, AT says). You know I am so grateful. But I’m also happy to say — back to regular blogging!

  2. Janice says:

    My only regret is that I can only vote once for Retro Renovation! I tried to re-log in with the intention of voting every day – heck every hour! – but it’s a one time deal. I love every thing about this site! Best of luck Pam!

  3. Tera says:

    You soooooooooooooooo have my vote. Maybe it’s because I have a house built in 1949 and your blog resonates so well with me that I had no idea there were these other blogs out there. I only click in to retrorenovation!

    Pam, you in that fabulous black dress brings to mind Emma Peel from the Avengers. Or maybe Julie Newmar as Catwoman! Pow! Zap! Zowie!

    Good luck in the race!

    Would you believe I have that same exact vintage dress, but in navy taffeta?! It’s got the same neckline, piping detail on the skirt..it’s really an exact match. I’ll wear mine, you wear yours, and we’ll storm the set of HGTV together and liberate all those perfect period kitchen and baths. What do you say? 😉
