How I Found My Style Sundays- Mr.s Hines Class


From My Front Porch To Yours- How I Found My Style Sundays
Hi! My name is Sharon and I blog over at Mrs. Hines Class where we celebrate home one lesson at a time. I have followed this series since the beginning and look forward to it each Sunday, so I'm thrilled to be here today amongst such good company. Thank you, Pamela for having me! 
Mrs. Hines Class  
Finding my style has been a lot like trying to fit in in junior high; awkward, uncomfortable and frustrating, striving to be like everyone else in school. Although I strived to for many years, the goal in decorating isn't to fit in, or recreate the looks of magazines, but to make your house feel like home, your home. So, I take my cues from what inspires me, like the warm whites, golden yellows and faded browns of the french countryside. That color palette is so relaxing to me.

  But I also love splashes of bold color like blue, and green paired with black and white. And I like to throw in a little gold for a classic look.

  My things are a mix of vintage and new, inherited and purchased. I tend to treasure the inherited things the most, like the horse head bookends I got from my grandmother, and my parent's dresser that now serves as my media console.

  Traditional furnishings give me a sense of comfort, while incorporating antiques or even antique reproductions appeals to my sentimental side.

  Natural and rustic elements have a calming effect on me. It's also an easy way to bring in my favorite design element: texture.

  I have found that my sense of style is guided by the way things make me feel more so than any one look. For me, creating a home is about having a safe, comforting place to lay your head at night. It's the place you'd rather be more than anywhere else in the world.

  Sometimes, I feel like my home is just that, and other times I want to tear it apart and start all over.

  But there's one thing I've learned in the process and that is this: surround yourself with what you love, and who you love, and your style will evolve from there
 See you in class,

Sharon thank you so much for stopping by to visit today and your words of wisdom in creating a beautiful home.

  7. Pamela, I really can relate to Sharon's common sense style of decorating... choosing what she loves and is comfortable with. It's a sign of growing up and knowing yourself! It's also very warm and welcoming. No wonder she sleeps so well at night! Thanks for bringing us one of my favorite bloggers!
