Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: Our home was built in the 1950s and actually had a ton of vintage decor and glassware left behind. I’ve incorporated mostly all of it into the home including the mirror in our dining room. I like to think our home is grandmillennial in style, with a touch of mid-century. We kept all of the original cabinets in the kitchen and even the sweet little scallop above the sink.
I’m a huge lover of mossy greens and light peachy pinks, which definitely plays a big role in our living room. Our sofa and chairs were a Facebook Marketplace place find for under $150! I knew our dining room needed wallpaper as soon as I saw it and I love the lighter sage greens with the blue trim. The house is feeling more and more “us” everyday! We still have work to do but it’s come a long way!
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Grandmillennial
What is your favorite room and why? Definitely the kitchen! It’s small but mighty and I absolutely love the original cabinets.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last thing I bought was a vintage sewing table for our dining room.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Take note of what you naturally gravitate to and remember to always make sure function is a priority!
