I met Sherry from Atomic Antiques soon after I wrote about the gorgeously-staged antique mall booth she used to rent in the sprawling local Avonlea Antique Mall. She was kind enough to invite me to her gorgeous home where she and and her husband have stashed an absolutely epic collection of mid century modern goodness. You will be stunned! There is some good taste and lots of years of hunting at work here! Check it out:
The kitchen reminds me of my 2nd apartment, which I impulsively selected for the black and white checkered tile! Absolutely beautiful!
There was lots of mod Wakefield furniture and beautiful vintage mid century modern collections on display. I spent a few hours taking 114 photos, I may have make another post or two just about all she's collected and displayed!
But before that posts is live at I'll at least share another peek at the glorious mod kitchen goodness she's amassed, love the soft pastel palate she went with!
Moving on to the cozy mod-filled wood paneled living room, I appreciated how she hung ash trays as art pieces, too clever! I may have to borrow that ideas.
I for one appreciate the huge Sinclair Gas Station collection. Their mascot was a dinosaur! Beautiful.
I appreciated how relaxed and comfortable the family home was despite all the vintage on display, everything was well organized and balanced.
With a Sinclair gas station owner in the family line and a mechanic in the house there was a huge collection of vintage car goodness I really appreciated. I shamefully know nearly nothing about cars but I haven't outgrown my hot-wheels phase, you see....
The bedroom was charming and restful, love the installed light fixtures and red/plaid/teal color scheme going on in here.
Symmetry! Love the atomic era alarm clocks on the night stands, too.
The curtains in particular and really dreamy and let the light in so just enough for a calming diffused light situation.
And this reminds me to get my vanity put together! Love this piece and all that's displayed on it.
The red vintage luggage collection and Mad Men inspired local artwork is a nice touch the set the vintage scene, too.
I loved how the collections were local and personal. There was lots to see and read about local and Florida-wide attractions and history.
And retro road trip and road side attraction goodness!
I would love one of each, please. Great collection!
Moving along to the back yard, love this Sinclair Dino sign! Want!
Retro Rocket, anyone! Look at these beautiful vintage cars! So glorious.
I would drive this car every day with pride, I would!
I was told the kids used to play red light green light with the real thing you see above.
Next time I'll have to show you the inside of Gertrude, she's being renovated at the moment. The inside has an awesome orange/brown retro theme to match the exterior. Was pleased to see a lot of my retro wares inside!
I will definitely have to share more from this beautiful retro household curated and collected with such care.
What's your favorite element of Sherry's home? It's hard to choose for me, maybe the Sinclair collection and that amazing wall display!? I will forever seek one like it!
