HI everyone! I am excited to get to be in a fun series called My Signature Style with lots of other talented bloggers! I was so excited when Carrie from Making Lemonade asked me because I just adore her! If you haven’t been over to visit her, please do because she has an amazing style and a beautiful heart.
Welcome of you are coming over from the decorating goodness at Life on Virginia Street
My style has changed a lot in the last 7 years since I began blogging. I would say it’s Modern vintage eclectic cottage style. I know that’s a lot of words, but it’s that the great things about style, it doesn’t have to fit in a box!
I really love vintage furniture and many times use that as my base.They just don’t make furniture the way the used to! I love heavy solid wood and reupholstered chairs and couches. Not that I don’t add in new pieces like my kitchen chairs. But old furniture is so well made! Like my couch.
This couch was my grandmothers. My dad grew up sitting on that couch and now my kids sit on it! It’s held up so well and I love it in my living room! It’s actually due for another reupholstering, but I hope I hold up that well when I’m 58 years old. Especially if a bunch of kids are jumping on me! 🙂
And I also love using some vintage industrial pieces like this vintage work bench for our kitchen island. I’ve been debating whether or not if leave the original black color or paint the base, but I love how much work space it give us!
And wile I love using vintage pieces, I also love adding touches of modern.
I love modern lamps and modern prints . Like in our bedroom.
and I think the eclectic parts come in for my love of color, pattern and just mixing and matching fun things. I like a little quirk and I like to add some fun little touches. I think your house should make you happy, no matter how big or small. Just put what you love in it and it will be amazing!
It’s a good thing to take chances on a little things in your home. Like a pig creamer. Every house needs on pig creamer turned flower vase. I mean, that’s a ton of fun for 50 cents, right?
I also like this fun silhouette lamp.
your home is a great place to try out something new like painting a pumpkin! I think that’s how we find our style is by trying things out. Thing we don’t like, we toss, things we do like we keep and then give it what ever name we want because it’s our style!
Make sure you visit all of these other bloggers sharing their style!
