My Vintage Pad: Home Tour Nicki Winkles of The Vintage Farmhouse

It has been awhile since I have published a "My Vintage Pad" home tour, these are some of my favorites to share with you. Please help me in welcoming Nicki Winkles of The Vintage Farmhouse. Her home is absolutely gorgeous. I think you will enjoy every minute of this tour. 




What is your favorite part of each room?

My favorite part of the kitchen is the mirror above the stove. It is unexpected and also helps the light bounce around in my small kitchen.

My bathroom has pops of blue and green that remind me of the ocean.

My Ektorp sofa from Ikea was found via Craigslist for only $25, it's super cozy and fun to change out pillows for each season.

My buffet in the dining room was an old dresser I found curbside and rescued and now it is my favorite piece of furniture. 

Where do you find inspiration for decorating your home?

Everywhere! I am particularly loving the French-Nordic style of decor right now, lots of white with pops of farmhouse cozy so I love to read Jeanne d'arc Magazine for ideas.

How do vintage things play a role in your room/home?

Vintage is the body of my home; heart, soul, and bones! Almost everything in my house was rescued vintage that has been given new life. 

Any advice on creating your look?

Go with what you love. Don't be afraid to bring in unexpected elements. I love white because it grounds everything and gives you more freedom to play with different styles. You don't have to be dedicated to just one type of decor in your home. 



A special thank you to Nicole Winkles for giving us a tour of your spectacular space.

House & Home Fall 2013: Vintage Style Handmade Quilts from Gypsya

I admit it, I hate winter. It hurts my bones, chills me to the core. If I could, I would live in the tropics every day, every season. Alas, I don't live in the tropics, so I'm going to do my best keeping warm with comfy quilts. You know, the kind your mother would wrap you in, and keep you warm with. 


Here are a few of my favorites from Gypsya.
