I want to wish each and every one of you a joyous and blessed Easter! May your day be filled with family and friends.
Once you are done with your praises and hunting down eggs I hope that you will join me in visiting another wonderful place.
Hi,I am Anne from White Lace Cottage.
I would describe my style as eclectic. I love the Farmhouse look mixed in with a bit of French, cottage, romantic Nordic and a tiny bit of industrial.You can see why I say my style is eclectic. I have always been drawn to vintage items. I love the character and uniqueness of each piece.Every piece has a story. My white walls have a neutral back ground which allows me to add bits of color. Warm whites are a favorite of mine. I like mixing in a bit of wood as well. I am always treasure hunting looking for interesting and unique pieces for my home. That vent dormer was a fun find. I also love finding old doors,windows and architectural pieces.Adding fresh flowers brings life to a room! I have lots of favorite things in my home. Right now I would say my favorite item is my barn door in my kitchen.
I love changing this door up. It is a great backdrop for this room. My most recent find was this sweet chippy pink farm table. It looks perfect against the barn door I think. I also added a mirror to add a little sparkle to the space. Mirrors are another favorite of mine.
I have a growing collection of white ironstone and white dishes that we use everyday. I painted my kitchen cabinets a year ago. It is so nice and bright our home is now. That ladder was added between the two cabinets to join them together and is also great for displaying my collections.
Those chippy posts were recently added to the mantle. I am always searching to find pieces with original chippy paint.
I shop at thrift stores, garage sales and antique shops but sometimes I also shop my own home. Shopping at home allows me to add a quick change to the look of something. Fabric is another thing I love to look for at thrift stores. I recovered my dining chairs with heavy pillow sham fabric found at a thrift store. It is a cheap and easy way to change the look of any chair.One thing I find is that if you wait long enough you will find what you want and for the price you want to pay. You just have to be patient. That chandelier was a thrift store find for just $10.00! To update it I just spray painted it white. I consider my self very thrifty and do not tend to over spend on anything I find. Paint is the cheapest and easiest way to change the look of a room or to update furniture.
When you are looking for your style find things that make you happy. Don't follow trends because in the end it won't be YOUR style. Be patient if you are on a budget! You will eventually find what you are looking for and at the price you can afford.
Thank you so much for joining me on my home tour. I hope you enjoyed your visit.
|Thank you Anne for bringing us into your home this Easter day! You are such a gracious host.|
