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.
A piece of gnarled wood forms a unique sofa table in this modern living room with eclectic touches. Built-ins throughout the room serve various functions, including display space for the homeowners' collections. Floating shelves in the bar area store liquor and barware. A sage green sofa gives the room a subtle hit of color.
A fresh coat of paint on a classic clawfoot tub brings new life to the vintage fixture. Hexagon mosaic floor tiles and lime green geometric wallpaper work beautifully with the beadboard wainscoting, creating an updated farmhouse aesthetic.
A dark setting allows the natural light from the windows to appear extra bright in this open-plan kitchen and living area. Dark cabinets are topped with white countertops for a nice contrast in color. A white tile backsplash and glass globe pendant lights with a crystal fringe interior add brilliance to the room.
This sleek, modern dining room rests at the center of the house, with easy access to the open-concept kitchen. A sinewy chandelier echoes the lines of the chairs. Meanwhile, the grain in the farmhouse-style table is on display, a natural element that ties in with the weathered wood floors and stairs.
The view into the dining area shows how the white painted ship lap accent wall allows the plants and wood furniture to come to life. White chairs at the ends of the table add an extra pop of style to the dining set up. Hanging succulents and indoor plants add natural life and color to the design.
Soft grays and white keep the feel in this contemporary living room light and bright, while red accents bring fun pops of energy. The large fireplace and elegant wood floors warm up the room literally and visually.
This contemporary dining room features a neutral palette of gray and gold. The live edge walnut table adds a natural element to the space, yet its stainless steel legs maintain a contemporary feel. The gray and tan print of the chairs provides a welcome graphic pop.
