My Home Style
My Home Style is definitely eclectic influenced by vintage, glam, and contemporary classic pieces.
I’ve always loved mixing styles of furniture and have been splitting up “box sets” (furniture, bedding, bath) since I was in high school. After my husband and I bought our first house together (three houses ago), I really started to find my home style.
All of our major pieces of furniture are either contemporary classic or vintage. We love shopping 2nd hand shops and garage sales. If we invest in something new, it’s definitely a classic style.
My favorite historical era is Art Deco. I love swing dancing, Cole Porter, my kimono house robe, and really anything 1940s. This art deco desk (a $35 estate sale find!) is my all time FAVORITE piece of furniture. I painted it gray with ombre drawers to compliment the brass hardware. Definitely glam!
I love mixing warm metals in each room. You’ll find gold, copper, and brass everywhere. They are usually glam or vintage accessories.
My favorite decorating accessory is this woman’s bust, Daphne. Everyone needs a Daphne. She is great at displaying necklaces and adds a bit of glam anywhere she sits.
By the way, she is sitting on an old butler table that I painted white. Another method of turning a classic piece into contemporary.
Our bedroom features all of my home styles. The vintage Chinese étagère sitting in the corner balances out the feminine and glam poster bed. Mixing pieces like this is a great way to keep the husband happy. See, everyone can have a little glam!
