Your Own Style







The key to make your home your own style is stick with what you love and have passion for.. Not being influenced by what someone else may like. I have seen many items and colors and patterns mixed together and you must really be very talented to make this work to satisfaction. I prefer to stay simple in the same color tones and mix my objects. When hunting for a certain item it may take some time and you may have to display patience. Don't settle for another item if you really have your heart set on one object, unless it is just out of your budget... When using vintage or old ... they usually marry quite well together.. I still love la creme as My favorite color... You can accent with so many things when staying in this comfort color.. Adding romance is a condition of the mind.. Adding or doing simple little pleasure you enjoy and love viewing is the easiest way of achieving. I am slowly getting my home back to it's day to day state and getting my vignettes little spaces straightened around... As you can view I have used many aged book pages to tuck in for color and texture and no cost... I left the little old book cover ice skate out to enjoy further through the winter season... These little skates I created really turned out sweet and I will pack them away with care and reuse next year as the winter season comes to a end... We have had snow the past couple days and that lends a feeling we are more apt to stay at home for longer periods of time... These are the hour I seem to want to add something special. I tend to go to the kitchen and bake so I can have the aroma in the house...adding a warm and soothing feeling. Not good on the waistline however...oh I didn't make the lose weight resolution... Well I am off to view some blogs and hopefully find inspiration.... Sending you wishes for a lovely afternoon...

Thanks for this post! I agree that your home should reflect your own style, even if it isn't what everyone else is doing. To me that's more interesting (and personal). :-)

Isn't it great that we all get to have our very own style? That is what makes each one of us unique. Somedays I am still trying to figure out what my style is, but hey it works for me.
It is cold and I have not even been outside today. Staying inside and warm!!

I just love your header so vintage and victorian looking.

I agree with what you said about sticking to what you like when decorating. Some of my friends just don't get it. I mean using the vintage items in today's decorating. I don't think there is any other way.

I seen an old friend recently and she siad do you still like all that old stuff? Well Of Course I do I said. Still Love It LOL

Marietta,
What I really like are the pair of shoes and pink bag...that's a lovely combination. Personally, I love all the frilly vintage items but my husband is not into that style so I really have few items but it's fun to live vicariously :)
