It’s true….over the years our home decorating style can change. Between trends and what we perceive to be in style based on what we see in magazines and online, can be quite overwhelming. I’ve seen many trends come and go through 24 years of marriage. For me, one thing that stays a constant in our home is furniture style. What’s my style….Vintage Eclectic in a nutshell. Vintage Eclectic is of time gone by. Stories are told and new memories are made.
The rooms in our home have evolved through the years. That is how I feel you obtain Vintage Eclectic Style. You don’t rush to furnish and decorate your home. It looks collected through the years. My favorite way to accessorize our home is by hunting thrift and antique stores.
My daughter’s room is another example of this. This room is a perfect example of Vintage Eclectic style. There is a mixture of new, handed down family heirlooms and thrift store finds made over with decorative paint finishes.
I have been familiar with Sauder Woodworking Co. for many years, and was impressed by the furniture offerings today! Sauder has been providing us with high quality, affordable furniture selections for years. They have many styles to help the just starting out to the seasoned homeowner decorate their home affordably!
This dresser from Sauder would be a perfect addition to my daughter’s room.
Vintage Eclectic style can extend to porches. The look can be obtained indoors and out. Of course, I only use thrift store furniture finds on my porch painted with an exterior use paint. With the exception of the wicker and a couple of accessories, this porch was decorated with thrift store finds that were collected.
Don’t be afraid to change things up! Shop your home to keep your Vintage Eclectic style fresh and “new” to you.
Our mantel is a favorite way to showcase my love of vintage. I change it out with the seasons by simply shopping our home. I borrowed the vintage fan from my son’s desk!
I would love to have this bookcase from Sauder for an area in our kitchen. I have been wanting a bookcase just like this to house my large cookbook collection.
