For some time now we have been researching refinishing techniques for battered old furniture that needed a facelift before being put back into the world. We wanted to create something that would be both high quality while maintaining some of the original beauty of the piece. After some work, we think we have achieved both of these goals. This desk is our first large refinishing project that we are unveiling. Please let us know what you think. We are still working on other techniques and different looking finishes. But we are happy with this one and look forward to finding it a new home!!

In our constant searching through a variety of design magazines, we are noticing more and more unique taxidermy pieces. The photo above has some more traditional examples. The photo below is a bit more unique. The sisters pictured in the photo have recently been featured in both the NY Times and Elle Decor UK. We LOVE the swans. Not too mention we thought it was cool that they shared our vision with the fencing mask right below them :)
Of course, there are some examples of taxidermy that go beyond rational explanation. Our little friend below would be one of those examples. And while he didn't make it in a high end newspaper or fashion magazine, well, we still think he is awesome!!

We love unique storage units like this one! These unique little files can be used to decorate your home and add some character or for more practical uses such as a place for the cars keys that you can never find in the morning. Let Recycled Style help organize your life :)

We wanted to post this because the color scheme used on this very unique living room love seat really highlights what inspires the pallet for Syd & Harper. The mix of teal and turquoise with shades of grey look great great together. We also love the wood chair in front that warms up the room. All we would add is a pop of red somewhere :) Have a great week everyone!!

Kitchens are one of the most naturally creative places in your home. It's where the art of preparing a meal and entertaining friends happens. Your kitchen is a perfect place to infuse a bit more of your personality into your home. One of the easiest ways to do this is with unique bar stools and dining chairs. Look for seating that is going to stand out against the rest of your decor. It will add a punch to your kitchen and be a great conversation piece during your next gathering!
