Bachman's Summer Ideas House is open!
Perfectly timed with the early summer-like weather we have enjoyed in Minnesota, the Bachman's Summer Ideas House opened to the public today!
The home's interior underwent a complete redesign once again and is inspired by the lake cottages that surround the many Minnesota lakes. We were able to make great use of the yard and detached buildings, creating comfortable outdoor entertaining spaces complete with lots of vintage touches.
The Bachman's Summer Ideas House features over 150 projects and ideas for using new and vintage items in fresh, unique and practical ways. Some of my favorites are the mailbox planters, wagon wheel hooks, and sprinkler towel bars. I will show you a couple of these in my next post.
So you're thinking, "Ki, while I would love to come see your Ideas House but I don't live in Minnesota (or anywhere near Minnesota for that matter!)".
I am really excited that you will be able to see the house in a future issue of Flea Market Style magazine. We will be shooting the house for a feature in the magazine!
On another note, the new Junk Bonanza blog is up and running. The blog's author Jill Hinson, will feature insider information about the Bonanza and highlight the Bonanza vendors in her posts. Right now she is hosting a giveaway on the blog - two Early Bird tickets to the 2010 Junk Bonanza! Go check it out!
