My Home Style Blog Hop


Today I’m sharing my home style along with an amazing group of bloggers!! There are 20 of us participating so we will be sharing over the next three days.  There will be tons of inspiration and decorating tips.  I can’t wait to see them all!


My Home Style blog hop is hosted by the lovely and talented Stephanie from Casa Watkins.  If you haven’t seen all of the home styles, I would suggest starting from the beginning here and clicking all the way through.  They are awesome!  If you are coming from Domicile 37, welcome.  Isn’t Jess’ style amazing?  So classy!

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.SONY DSC



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!


If you’re looking to add some Vintage, Glam, and Contemporary Classic pieces, here are some great inspirational pieces!

1.  A chalkboard with a vintage inspired frame can add a touch of classic black and white in any space.
2. Louie style chairs are great for splitting up dining room sets.  Buy them in an updated color for a contemporary classic.
3.  The classic pedestal table in a clean white will never go out of style.
4.  Baskets with contemporary lines are my go to item for adding texture and functional storage to any style.
5.  Sea glass accessories are a fun vintage look that is neutral enough to mix with other colors.
6.  A black and white pillow is a classic color combo with a contemporary pattern that can also add glam to a room.
7.  Vintage brass figurines are a great way to add a little playfulness and work anywhere!
8.  Bamboo motif tableware are totally glam, vintage or new.
9.  Like a said, everyone needs a Daphne.  I love this handmade vintage inspired bust found on Etsy.  She’s totally glam!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have fun checking out This Makes That’s Home Style!!

My Home Style-Title (1)


    1. Thanks Jess!! I will was a little worried when we moved out here but we are super lucky to live off base. On base housing would have been quite a challenge. lol

  1. Love your style! I’m part of the Thursday blogger group and am enjoying seeing all of the posts from this first group. Beautifully done. The touches of glam are my favorite!

  2. You have such a beautiful home Kathy! One that I would want to move into myself! I really enjoy how you incorporate vintage furniture throughout, and your glam touches really speak to me! I think the only place I’ll ever be allowed to be that glam is my closet, and believe me, one day I’m going to take full advantage of it! Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!

    1. You’re so sweet Iris. I’m really enjoying how our home is coming together. I can’t believe we only moved in 8 months ago. Can’t wait to see what you do with your closet!!

  3. Hi, Kathy! I enjoyed seeing your home and really love your office. Your desk is lovely! Japan is on my bucket list and I’m sure you are constantly inspired by living there.

    1. Thanks Sharon! Japan has been a great experience but has really challenged me to be creative with decor. All their furniture is so small and there’s not a whole lot of home decor on our little island. lol The scenery and colors are stunning!

  4. I have some definite house-envy!! Your home is gorgeous, and I particularly love Daphne! (Also the gorgeous piano but I’m a music teacher so what can I say?)
