Decorating with Vintage Home Decor

Decorating with vintage home decor really shows off your personality…not to mention it can be easy on the wallet. But there’s a fine line between staying in the now and time warping. So how do you find that trending boho slash mid century modern look and not have Marsha screaming, “Oh! My nose!”

Easy, you must learn hot to mix old and new…vintage with modern. There’s no need to smash someone upside the head with vintage overload. But to find a good balance, you must have patience, a good eye, and a lot of trial and error. Not sure where to start? Confused? Don’t fret little one. We’re going to look at a few of my favorite Pinterest rooms (I strongly recommend following), and I’m going to tell you where you can find and source all the key home decor pieces. I’m all about making it easy.

My Favorite Kitchens of 2015

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been a pinning machine, and the one room that keeps kicking me into high gear is the kitchen. Do you know how many beautiful images there are of kitchens? White kitchens, dark kitchens, gray kitchens, marble countertops, stainless steel, brass pulls, butcher block, oh my. I mean seriously, if I had a Pinterest kitchen, I’d be Betty Freakin’ Crocker! So what exactly makes a kitchen a Pinterest-worthy kitchen? Well, let’s take a looksy at some of my favorite kitchens of 2015 and discuss.

Favorite Kitchens of 2015 Favorite Kitchens of 2015 - This in my opinion was the best kitchen of 2015. The black and white two toned cabinetry is a perfect mix of drama and fresh and clean. It's very modern yet the industrial stainless steel stove adds a vintage feel. I also love the floating shelves.via

Design Crush: The Rattan Hanging Chair

Last spring, I bought one of my first pieces of rattan furniture. What I like to call my entry level step into the world of boho interiors. Pretty soon, one rattan chair, turned into two. Shortly after a side table arrived, followed by another. And after perusing Craigslist, my two chairs turned into three; only to being given the, “enough with the rattan already” look.

One Room Challenge — Office Makeover with Vintage Finds

Time!!! The One Room Challenge final reveal deadline has arrived! Hands up! Well kinda. It’s the night before this post goes live, and I’m typing as fast as my little fingers can hit keys. I take that back, it’s after midnight. But for all intents and purposes, this room is dunzo! Like many of the other participants, I got the flu, and I’m tired and exhausted. Anyone who tells you this challenge is a breeze is lying. However, it’s also one of the most enjoyable blog projects I’ve ever completed. It’s been an absolute blast, but it really has come down to the wire. Last Saturday, I was still putting the finishing touches on the styling and scouring the Grayslake Flea Market like a crazed woman on a mission…for which I was. Yes, there are a few things that didn’t arrive on time, but it’s all good. I’m still pleased as punch with the final outcome.

My goal for this room was to bring in a lot of vintage pieces. Mixing old and new. Giving it a twist. Not banking on trends. I wanted the space to be comfy. Cozy. Someplace I’d like to hang out for hours. Challenge accepted. And I have to tell you, in my heart, with every fiber of my body, I know I hit this room makeover out of the park. Since I’m one of those people who can’t hold in their excitement…here’s the final reveal! My office makeover with vintage finds.
