Accessorizing with vintage winter sporting equipment, such as skis, snowshoes, a sled and skates, gives a rustic cottage appearance to a North Carolina front porch decorated by blogger Amy Buchanan of AttaGirlSays. The sports equipment joins yard sale finds, including the table, vintage wooden toolbox and the dresser frame.
Home decor blogger Amy Buchanan started with a yard sale table and layered in finds, such as a tobacco stick star, a pinecone garland and a frame from an old dresser. Ticking ribbon and wooden Christmas trees painted to look like old grain sacks are in keeping with the farmhouse theme. "I love collecting vintage items throughout the year, then mixing them together to create rustic and farm-style vignettes," says Buchanan, who blogs at AttaGirlSays.
This living room is a comfortable, open gathering space for the homeowner to entertain with friends and display her travel artifacts. The homeowner's existing silk sofa set the color palette for the space. Designer Amy May drew upon the inspiration to incorporate more color while keeping the space classic, comfortable and inviting.
Classic and contemporary elements meet in this sleek, clean-lined home. Weathered wood and Oriental carpets form a pleasing contrast with gallery-white walls and modern glass-and-metal doors, windows and stair rails.
Gray wood-look tile for the walls and floors crisply contrasts the white vanity in this spa bathroom for a look that's chic and luxurious. The circular drawer and cabinet pulls have a whimsical appeal.
Rich hardwood flooring connects the contemporary living room and kitchen in this open design. A dark ceiling and navy-blue walls create a sultry background and allow the natural light from the window to shine extra bright and illuminate the sheen in the throw-pillow fabric.
