Happy Tuesday! 

I am THRILLED to be included in the My Home Style blog hop hosted by Casa Watkins. If you have not seen all the home styles, I suggest starting with Casa Watkins and clicking all the way through. We have a total of 20 linking participants!!! If you are coming by from Petticoat Junktion, WELCOME! The premises of this blog hop is to share our signature design style with you. As a blogger and designer sometimes our style gets jumbled and does not translate well with our readers, so what better way to show it then by creating a collage explaining who we are as designers.

My Home Style-


I am a very straight forward in person and design style, what I consider my style to be is Vintage mixed with Eclectic decor and some edginess...Yes!

Vintage

I have always loved color and traditional decor mixed modern decor, but throughout the years I have truly fallen in love with vintage furniture and home decor. Unfortunately, I cannot decorate my whole home using vintage pieces because it can age by making it feel outdated. I have a tendency to look for vintage furniture, 90% of the time, when shopping for furniture. There is something so beautiful about an aged piece of furniture, maybe it is the history of the piece...or the fact that they do not make furniture like this anymore.

Eclectic

I have a great love for all design styles, but the styles that speak to me the most are: Hollywood Regency, Chinoiserie, Art Deco, Mid Century Modern, Bohemian, and some Ethnic decor. Looking back to my childhood, I have always had an infinite appreciation for a mixture of styles. My grandmother was a collector of many things. She had persian rugs in every room, a vintage bright red velvet Queen Anne sofa, Middle Eastern brass decor, Chinoiserie style garden stools and vases, funky wall paper, built in cabinetry, brass beds, and a wall of antiqued mirrors. Her home was absolute Heaven for me.

Edge

This one is a doozer...I have a hard time following rules and that shows through in my decorating. When I was in college, there were some rules we learned about, but I never look back to think about them and I base all my design decisions on what my eyes see and how I feel...."Does it look right to me? How do I feel about it?" Even in the blogging community and all throughout pinterest I see post on "follow these rules" to decorate your home. I am not that type of designer...I want to break all the rules! Also, if Rock n' Roll is considered Edgy, I get a lot of my inspiration through that and fashion.

Well, that does it for My Home Style! Do not forget to stop by Kathryn from Up To Date Interiors. She is one awesome designer who can make living in a rental feel like home! Trust me, she has some mad skills!

  9. I love how you mix your styles together! You can see your appreciate for vintage, but that edge you spoke about shines through making them fresh again. I too don't care for design rules. I don't think I would ever have my home the way it is now if I tried to follow all of the ones being preached about on the net. Glad to see I'm not the only one that feels that way! Oh and I have to ask..Can I have that mirror in front of your fireplace, please? LOL! It's beautiful!
