While sourcing lighting for our cabin, I’ve been focusing on finding pieces that are either vintage, thrifted, or vintage in feel. To me, it’s important for this home to have a more eclectic, curated look than our last home. Because of that, I feel like I’m so much more aware of how lighting trends ebb and flow… and then ultimately come back. A good example of that is the mushroom lamp trend that is popping up now (pun very much intended). I absolutely love the tortoise version I sourced from Urban Outfitters, but have been eying a few other of these diminutive cuties to sprinkle throughout our home. Here are a few faves that I’m loving right now in case you’d like to add one or two to your home!Continue reading “Lighting Trend Alert: Mushroom Lamps”

I’m in the process of building a totally updated, brand new website and part of that will be a section dedicated to all of my favorite things — including home improvement items that I recommend and swear by!

Everything on this list is something we’ve had in both of our homes and highly recommend!

Vintage shopping is truly one of my favorite pastimes. To me, nothing beats the thrill of the hunt and the unexpected joy of discovering something truly amazing (and for a great price while also finding new life in an existing object instead of buying something new). I’ve heard from a few of my Instagram followers recently that they struggle to know how to decorate with vintage decor pieces they source. And trust me, I get it. There have definitely been times when I feel like I’ve found the score of the century… and then I get it home and am like UH WUT NOW. But I’m here to tell you that even if you are in that exact situation right this minute, you shouldn’t lose the joy you have for that item… instead, try any of these ideas to incorporate vintage style into your home.Continue reading “4 Unexpected Ways I Decorate with Vintage”

They are just so wonderful and I highly encourage you to consider using one in your dining room! Yup, an outdoor rug inside… here’s why:Continue reading “Why I Chose an Indoor/Outdoor Rug for Our Dining Room”
