How I Found My Style Sundays- D.D.'s Cottage and Design

From My Front Porch To Yours-How I Found My Style Sundays

Hello, I am Darrielle from D.D.'s Cottage and Design.
I am honored that Pamela would ask me about my decorating style and let me show you my home. 
I live in a 100+year old Farm/Ranch house by the beach in California with my daughter, husband and labrador Hudson.

My decorating style is? 

I would describe my decorating style as Vintage Coastal Farm.

I like all things beachy and since I live by the ocean, I try to keep a coastal vibe to my decorating.

Since my home is an old farm house and I grew up on a ranch/farm I gravitate towards rustic elements as well.

I also like almost anything that is rusty, crusty and old.

How did you "find" your decorating style?

I think like most people my style has evolved over time, but I have always been into vintage things . In high school I wore my grandmothers old dresses and loved to shop at thrift stores for vintage clothes and linens. Growing up on a ranch also made me resourceful and I l like to repurpose things. Many of the things around my house were found on junkin excursions and I have transformed them or gave them a new purpose.

What has been your most treasured find for your home?

My most treasured find of the moment is my new grain sack chair--I absolutely love it!

I also love my farm table with its vintage tablecloth-my family thinks I am crazy, but we always take the table cloth off to eat-I care about my linens more then the top of the table!

What tips do you have for creating a beautiful home? 

For me I always have fresh flowers around my house. Flowers are like breath to me and my house feels sad without them.

I think a person should place things in their home that make them feel peaceful, calm and happy. I like to mix styles and I think if you love something you should figure out how to use it in your decorating.
