Over the years, my personal style has changed. And so to has the look of our home. Through out all the changes, I've managed to merge old pieces (like my white sofa from 1998) with new (simple pillow covers from Crate & Barrel) and thrift, like this years $15 faux bamboo coffee table with a pair of modern end tables I picked up at the Salvation Army a few years back. Here's a peek at the anatomy of part of my current living room for Summer...
It's definitely been a labor of love, but it also shows that you don't need to run out to RoomsToGo and buy a whole room, nor do you need expensive custom pieces for your space to stylishly represent your lifestyle today. If you build your space on a strong foundation - neutral colors and quality furniture - your space can adapt through your changing lifestyle or your latest color obsession... lol
From A Simple Shift To Shopping Thrift
I'll post more about the changes, but right now I'm headed out to source some fabric and materials to build a padded head board this weekend - for the bedroom makeover I'm doing.
Have a great day!
