Welcome to my Spring Home Tour! I decided it was time to put together a few photos and show you around…at least a little bit. For those who follow me on Instagram and on my Blog you know, I love many styles. For those who are new…welcome! Let me introduce you to my world of decor!
Modern Farmhouse…love it! Urban Industrial Design…can’t live without it! Vintage Decor…I have a soft spot! Eclectic and Modern…everyone needs a little in their life! Mid Century…what’s old is new again! I’m pretty much a lover of all styles.
I don’t have one particular style and frankly, I feel like life would be boring if I did.
I buy what I like, and I make it work with what I already have. I love adding vintage pieces, touches of whimsy and strong design elements to a space. The adventure is finding them!
One of the first bold statements is right at the front door. I recently painted this on our door to represent the 5 wonderful people that make up this home. I love numbers, letters and anything typography related…as you’ll see!
The nearby Gallery Wall is made of up a Vintage Bus Roll from London, an old locker for storage, cast iron table base from an old soda shop and a pop of funky modern urban art! Who says you can’t mix modern with vintage? Also, this is a perfectly functional mudroom for a small space. We use this side door off the garage all the time. It’s all about the details.
Where We Hang Out
Our Family room is where we live…where we hang out, play games, watch TV and do just about everything else. It’s in between the kitchen and the outdoors. We have a low profile leather sofa to fit the family. As much as I love white and the look of slipcovered furniture… one slipcovered chair is all we have and it’s known as “Mom’s chair.” 😉 With our family leather works. I love to add white and pops of whatever color I’m working with all around. I’ve never been a “buy the whole room” kind of person. Also, by having a neutral sectional that goes with everything…I can easily change out a chair or table and give the room a completely different look. Trust me, I’ve done it.
I love changing out the mantle. I recently painted it white…best decision I ever made. You can see how I did it here. For now, I have this bold metal R taking center stage. Lately, I’ve been loving the clean look of Black and White decor with the Industrial touch…very Scandinavian. I added a soft touch with some Pink Peony artwork and of course, my large wood horse adds a bit of texture. My color palette lately consists of whites and woods with black and blush accents.
Around the room, you can see more of this color palette, especially on the old mail sorter that sits between the 2 sets of french doors in the room. Perfect fit and always easy to change with whatever the mood! This wall has a touch of all that I love…Industrial Lights, Antique Gold Mirror, Vintage Mail Sorter and lots of curiosities.
Moving On To the Kitchen
We have an open floor plan so the next stop is the Kitchen and Dining area. We have a formal dining room but we turned it into a room more suitable for our family. More on that later. 😉
I recently added pops of Pink in the kitchen along with some new white stools for a Spring Refresh.
Because I love the “unexpected” I added a touch of art in the kitchen. This canvas of The Girl with the Pearl Earring is one of my favorites and has the perfect hues for this space.
In the corner, you can see my favorite Kitchen Shelves. I love open shelving and here I can store and admire some of my favorite pieces. Ever changing, ever rearranging…do you have a space like that?
This brings us to the Farmhouse table that sits right in the kitchen. We use it for everything. Again, you’ll notice I combined Industrial Lighting with a Rustic Farmhouse table and a mix of seating including some cool mid-century style ones.
Let’s Go Outside
Last stop on this tour takes us outside the French Doors to the back porch. We did a makeover on this space last Fall. I called it my Vintage Chic Eclectic Retreat, click here to see how we did it. It’s definitely a retreat for us.
Again, you can see I mix old and new and in this space…lots of color! From the Sunrises to the Sunsets, this space is enjoyed.
Well, that’s a brief tour of the busiest parts of our home. As you can see, I love hunting for treasures, mixing old and new and decorating with what makes me happy! Thanks so much for stopping by!! I’ll try to take you upstairs next time. 😉 I’m currently working on the Laundry Room for the upcoming One Room Challenge. I’d love for you to follow along! Also, join me on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for the latest, because this house is always changing!!
See you soon!
