Getting The Vintage Eclectic Style
Lately I’ve been talking a lot about my style: Industrial Beachy French. It’s a mouthful, I know! But it’s totally me.
Maybe you struggle with finding your own style? You might need to start small before you come up with a three-word description like me.
It’s taken me years to find my decorating style so it’s definitely something that shouldn’t happen overnight.
I think the best bet is to start small and take it from there. What I mean is, grab a few small ideas that you like in terms of a decorating style and then expand on it.
In a broader sense, I love French Vintage. That’s easy right? Basically I love everything French and Vintage.
I just made it more detailed (or complicated) by coining my term, Industrial Beachy French.
But what does that mean for you?
Maybe you don’t specifically like those exact styles.
Well, I think I’ve found the perfect solution.
It entails anything vintage AND anything else you love! How cool is that?
It’s a great jumping point and I think that it could be your long term decorating style as well!
Vintage means anything that is old, bought at a thrift store or garage sale or could mean something that has the styling of a vintage piece.
Eclectic means anything goes, in my opinion. A mix up of lots of items that you love.
It’s a worn look but can still read as a clean look depending on how you style it.
It’s unique, original and definitely you. It’s you because you are the one finding the pieces to put it together.
Recently, I’ve discovered a line of furniture that carries those same styling aspects – Sauder Woodworking Co.
Clean, eclectic vintage pieces like this bookshelf.
I love white, creamy furniture and I luuurrrve these pull handles!
It looks a bit similar to my custom vanities.
Or my daughter’s dresser.
Painted furniture is sooo vintage!
My daughter’s bookshelf has a beadboard backing.
Just like this beautiful creamy white cabinet.
Do these chairs look familiar? I have similar ones in my kitchen!
Here is some great information I just learned about Sauder Woodworking Co.:
Erie Sauder started a woodworking business in a barn behind his home in Archbold, Ohio. He started building custom cabinetry and church pews! I love a good history story that involves a DIYer!
Today Sauder Woodworking Co. is North America’s leading producer of ready-to-assemble furniture.
I hope I’ve helped you start to find your decorating style. I think starting with some key pieces of beautiful furniture is always the way to go and adding the small touches make it truly your own.
Mix and match new pieces with old to make it truly unique and YOU!
