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!”

Marsha Brady 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.

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.

Should I Stay or Should I Indigo – One Room Challenge Progress

Phew! Man, the past week has flown by. Radio silence has ensued (sorry about that…it’s not you, it’s me), but I swear I’m not sitting on the sofa eating bon-bons watching Days Of Our Lives. (Is that show even on anymore? In college was addicted to it.) Anyhoo, I’ve been moving around furniture, styling vignettes, giving the UPS man hugs, shopping at my favorite vintage stores, and pawing through what I already own like a mad woman. Then I move it all round again…and again…and again…and then I change my mind…again. The One Room Challenge progress report is in full effect today. My home office is starting to take shape. Transforming right before my eyes and I really like what I’m seeing. If you missed it, I posted this sneak peek of the space on my Instagram Monday morning.

How ’bout that rug, eh? I’ve been drooling over this Loloi Rug named Anastasia since its launch and pretty much freaking out over it. I knew I had to make it work in the space because one way or another, this bad mamajama was going to be mine.

One Room Challenge – Week 1

Late last Spring I gave both my master and guest bedroom a major makeover. I was on design project overload, and oddly, it seemed like every other blogger on the planet was doing the same. What a strange coincidence. Everyone I knew was suddenly tearing their homes apart and documenting the process. Why are you guys stealing my thunder with your amazing room makeovers? Knock it off already. What the heck people? I kept seeing One Room Challenge here and One Room Challenge there. I’m sorry? What is this One Room Challenge you speak of?One Room Challenge

Finally, one night, I Googled One Room Challenge and was immediately taken to Calling It Home…an amazing blog on home interiors and low and behold, the creator of the one and only One Room Challenge. Twice a year, if they are up for it, bloggers are challenge to give an incredible room makeover to a disaster zone and given only 6 weeks to complete it. Motivating? Yes. Challenging? Yes. Insanely crazy? YES! How did I not know about this? Where was the blogger memo? How did I miss it, and more importantly, how can I join in because man-o-man does this look like one heck of a good time. Well, I had to wait until Fall to participate, but that time is now, and I’m here with bells on. Let’s do this already!
