She Blinded Me With Science

I like stuff. I like a lot of stuff, and not all the stuff I like matches. So I've been using Pinterest to focus my taste and plan exactly what I want in my living room. I don't want an overt theme, but I like accessories that evoke a mad science lab feeling: Antique biology prints, apothecary jars and bell jars, Edison bulbs, and a well-appointed bar cart (For chemistry, y'all!). I aim to balance the old-fashioned elements with mid-century furniture and modern gray walls. These images are inspirational.  

Credit - This entire house tour is fantastic.
I like the anatomical print, bell jar glassware, and lamp.

I like the glassware and natural specimens... though I don't think I really want to live with dead animals, so I'd rather mimic that look with a piece of art.

I like the graphic black and white pillows, Edison light bulbs, and bar cart.

I like the look of gold against dark gray-blue walls.

I like the industrial storage, glassware, and general laboratory feel of this room.

To Do:
Make new throw pillows
Collect pretty glassware
Hang science-inspired art
Hang an Edison bulb over my easel
Find an industrial or fancy gold bar cart
Find matching walnut-finish mid-century end tables

  1. LOVE your blog! Very inspiring! I totally pinned half of it in the past 30 minutes :) BTW, if you are looking for that halo chandelier with the Edison light bulbs, the store I manage marketing for sells it! And probably for way less than Anthropologie... nectarimports.com

    It's not on our site yet, but if you're interested just email me at bea@nectarimports.com

    Thanks for all the gorgeous images!

    1. Oh wow, thank you! Your comment honestly made my day. I'm glad you could find some inspiration here. I checked out Nectar, and WOW. Everything is beautiful. I'm especially impressed by the items from Codor Designs. Normally I don't go for glass furniture (I leave fingerprints all over them!), but they are so beautiful that I don't even care about that! Would you mind if I did a blog entry all about them?

      P.S. You can find me here on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/jenwooters/
