What’s my style?

Hmmmm, that’s hard to define.

From farmhouse to shabby to industrial to mid century modern, I love it all.

Somehow, my hodgepodge of finds manages to live together in peace and harmony.

My Style = Eclectically Vintage of course!


By the way – a big thank you to Jenna from Rain On a Tin Roof and Jamie from So Much Better with Age for including me in this fun What’s Your Style series.


My living room is the perfect example.

Chances are if you visit me next month, this room will look completely different than it does today.

One day it might look like this …

another day it could look like this with a vintage gallery wall …

but sometimes changes to a family wall …

blink and it could even look like this with vintage collections moving round and round.

This is my living room today.

The formality of the camelback sofa (which I would love to replace!) is downplayed by pairing it with two mid-century club chairs in their original blue velvet fabric.

A new glass coffee table with an antiqued mirrored base is miles apart style wise from my antique wallpaper pasting table.

I’m all about vintage collections.

Group thrift shop finds together and they’ll look like a million bucks.

I’ve had this console table forever and would love to find it a new loving home (not mine!) but in the meantime, I piled it with a few vintage finds and we live in harmony.

Don’t be afraid to buy what you love.

Move things around your home to find the perfect spot …

then move them again for a fresh look.

  1. I love it every way! The grey walls look fabulous with your accessories, and I love the blue and green glass – great for a beachy look as well.

  2. your rafflecopter isn’t showing up.
    My style is a bit of everything; some of this and some of that. I buy what I like and work it into what I already have. Sometimes just changing pillows out makes a big difference.

  3. You have a creative flair and I love the different looks you achieve from just changing out one collection for another. Amazing the way each changes the room’s overall look! Love! The glass vases in greens is wonderful and so sparkly….each on its own would not pack the punch! Thanks for the ideas.

  4. Awesome Kelly!! I thought your room was beautiful in ANY of the styles!! It’s hard for me to pinpoint just one style too! Why limit yourself, when there’s SO much beauty out there☺ But if I had to label my styling influence, I would probably narrow it down to french farmhouse, rustic, with just a tiny bit of shabby chic! Thanks for all this amazing inspiration!–♥Angie

  5. Kelly, I love your house! Your style is amazing. I’m so happy you were apart of this tour with us. I’m sharing this on my FB page today 😉

  6. Kelly your blog always makes me smile. Love the gallery wall, glass and all the light in your home. I guess our style is farm house that wishes it could be at the beach? Sea glass and floats get mixed with my grandmothers quilts and husbands minnow bucket collection. Ya never know around here!

  7. I would have to say I love it all.Every style and theme you showed I loved. You have a very nice home, love it all. Wish I lived close as I’d love to have that console table you want to get rid of.
    I am big on moving things around from room to room, accessories, whatever it might be. I don’t like to be pinned down to any one look or idea. Have always been that way. When we lived in MT and KY I was moving things around, painting walls, sometimes late at night, I’m a night owl. When the urge and inspiration hit I’d go for it.
    Drives hubs crazy. At that time he was gone alot so had all the time in world to do what struck me at a moments notice. I’m a pretty spontaneous person. Hubs would call to ask if I wanted to go to such and such a place, by the time he got home I was packed if it meant I had to take dirty clothes I could wash on the way at a truck stop, I’d be ready. Had to be as many times we had to leave right away.
    I have no idea what style I have, it changes as the mood strikes or I see something different I love. Ah well. Drives our daughter crazy, she comes over and goes from room to room to see what I’ve changed.
    Happy days, have fun being you.

  8. love it! we have similiar tastes. get you some spray painted laquer on that sofa/console table asap… it’ll jazz it right up and be worthy of your space! any howard brand laquer has amazing colors. do it! 🙂

  9. I did the green glass collection on a shelf in our breakfast room, which is a little room off the kitchen with a look through. A small cutout from kitchen to that room giving the kitchen more light from the two windows in there facing the back yard. There’s a beautiful red bud tree right by the windows. I love my shabby chic, eclectic, vintage, country cottage. That definition covers a lot of territory but that’s basically what my house is. MK

  10. I did the green glass collection on a shelf in our breakfast room. There’s a small cutout between rooms which brings a lot of light into the kitchen from the two windows between tall book shelves. There’s a red bud tree that blooms in the Spring right outside those windows. My house is basically vintage, shabby chic, country, eclectic. That covers a lot of territory but that’s what it is. Lone your website. Full of rooms that are just my thing. Thanks! MK

  11. I so want your console table. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for, & your style… love love love!
