All of the furniture and accessories you bring into your house is what makes your house truly... your home. Using different styles of furniture, colors and patterns is what makes your home unique. More than anything, I want our home to feel warm and comfortable and to be reflective of who we are as a family. In order to do this I mix both vintage and modern pieces together. I have a fairly modern home with high ceilings, large half moon windows and arched entryways. Even so, I have found it easy to weave vintage items throughout.
One King's Lane. They are a home resource store offering top-brands, vintage and designer items at great prices.
Not only that, they have a Home Decor Resource Guide on their site that is wonderful reference when you want to get inspired, find new items or have questions on how to pull something together. And, they also have a Home Decor Shopping Handbook where you can look up information and articles on mirrors, rugs, headboards, dressers, outdoor furniture and more. It's like having your own personal decorator online - ready to encourage and support you. I'm happy to say that several of my decorating ideas above fit nicely with the tips offered on their site.
One King's Lane also offers a great selection of vintage items as well. They see decorating "as a wonderful journey that never ends". They offer daily sales (usually they only last 72 hours so you have to be quick), their own style blog and a "downstairs" clearance section that changes each week.
I hope you give mixing vintage and modern pieces a try. It really does add warmth and charm to any home.
Have a fabulous weekend.
