Eclectic Home Tour – The Gathered Home

The Gathered Home Blog home tour - 98% of her decor is from thrift stores!

Can you believe that Brynne of The Gathered Home has furnished her Dallas area home with 98% thrift store and Craigslist finds!

She mixes styles and eras with antiques and kitsch for a home that shows off her unique personality and she shows us that it can be done on a tight budget.

Says Brynne, “I believe that the best kind of home is a “gathered” one, full of treasures with a story to tell. A gathered home is assembled slowly and lovingly over time from a wide variety of sources – relying on patience and persistence, a little soul searching, and a healthy dose of serendipity – embracing each new addition and its accompanying story.”

  1. Did you buy the brass bed brand new? If so, where can I find it? I am new to your site. I rarely follow peoples sites, but fell in love with yours.
    B.T.W. beautiful home .

  2. I’ve always thought her house was a lot of fun. Probably because if I was twenty years younger, it’s how I would decorate. My home is gathered too, but mostly with the Dead People Stuff.

  3. Lovely and eclectic. This is a true original vision – amazing that this was mainly created thought repurposing thrift store and Craig’s list finds. I do this as well in my small Grant Park home….but this is amazing. Inspiring!

  4. I especially fell in love with her living room with all that great green! I think I will start following also the blog by Brynne. Thanks for pointing this out!
