Friday Finds - Teak and Teal

Teal/Peacock/whatever-you-call-it has no doubt been an "it" color over the past year or so.  I am not immune to the siren song of this rich, saturated color.  I often envision this color in 80's taffeta prom dresses with shoulder pads and butt bows - yet it's a little bit of the "it's so ugly it's cute" appeal.  Such an unnatural color, yet I think the teak wood in this collection really balances it out.  I can't get away from my vintage love, so we're going mid century again ... maybe I'll go further into deco or Victorian next?

TGIF!
