You guys, I don’t think I have ever been this much excited about a blog post. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know my love for anything vintage and antique is real. So when I was asked to join in with a group of talented bloggers for a link party dedicated to decorating with mixing vintage and modern, I jumped at the chance! At the end of this post you’ll find links to my amazing friend’s blogs to see their posts…AND we would love for you to share and link up YOUR blog post for a chance to be featured on one or more of our blogs next month! (just click the little blue button at the bottom of this post to add your link;)
I know that for some, finding ways to mix in your favorite antiques with the rest of your home decor can get tricky. I totally get it, you want to add in those rustic, chippy, unique, character filled, worn pieces in a way that flows with the rest of your decor…all while steering clear of turning your house into a cluttered “thrift store”;) Well have no worries, because I am here to show you exactly how I try to achieve that “polished farmhouse” look. I’ll show you my 3 favorite antique statement pieces in my home, and how I styled them with modern “store bought” decor.
- Antique Door with New Rope Mirror
- Antique French Country Dresser With New Mirror & Lamp
- Antique Victorian Shutter with New Wall Mount Vases
I hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did putting it together! I swear, trying to narrow down my 3 favorite vintage pieces is like trying to choose a favorite child….I have so much and each piece tells a different story and has so much of it’s own unique character. I guess that’s what draws me to all things vintage:) I usually try to stick with one main unique vintage piece per space, and then I tend to keep the rest of the surrounding decor simple and classic. I hope this post inspires you all to incorporate vintage pieces into your own decor…whether it be a cool trunk you found at a yard sale, or a sentimental piece handed down from grandparent….there are so many ways to tie those special pieces in with the rest of your home.
