What is your favorite part of each room?
Our kitchen is my favorite room in our home. It is where we read, do homework, prepare and eat our meals and come together to celebrate and share life’s daily happenings.
What I like
most about this space is that it doesn’t feel like a typical kitchen. Instead of using upper cabinets I found a
large antique pine cabinet that holds all of our everyday china. I love having the long pine table in the
middle of the room for extended family and friends. Also part of this room is a small sitting
room with a fireplace.
Bedroom: My bedroom is a small space that is very comfy and cozy . In this room I have tried to keep the colors very calming and serene. I love the pale gray walls and the scrumptious white bedding. One of my favorite parts of this room is the old ironstone platter collection displayed above the bed.
Craft Room: Ahh, the girly room. I am lucky that I have this little nook to call my own. I have all of my favorite things displayed in this room from ribbons, fabric, glitter, old wallpaper, buttons…..and the list goes on and on. My son lovingly refers to this room as the Candy Shoppe.
Where do you find inspiration for decorating your home?
My inspiration comes from so many sources. I love reading books and magazines on decorating, especially British decorating magazines. I am also inspired by nature. One can get so much inspiration by being outdoors…..whether it be a walk in the city, a stroll down a country lane or a hike through the woods. Elements of nature are definitely part of my decorating.
I am a lover of all things old, tattered and worn, and I incorporate these things into my decorating. Most of our furniture pieces are either antiques or pieces that I have picked up at flea markets or tag sales. I also have several vintage collections that I use in decorating a room including transferware, ironstone, hotel silver and linens.
Any advice on creating your look?
In creating our home I have decorated from my heart and for what feels right for my family. I try to take my time and not rush into buying things that don’t speak to me. In my opinion, creating a home is always evolving and a process that is meant to be enjoyed.
