If you've been following my blog for awhile, you know I have changed my interior decor a bunch of times in the ten years I have lived in my home. The years I spent building new homes, added fuel to my decorating frenzy. I've had everything from Shabby Chic, to Victorian, to all white. What was always a conflict for me was the way I drew and designed my patterns and the way I decorated.
In November, I finally came full circle with all my decorating and soul searching. I found a dining room set that truly felt like me and was a perfect match to my quilts, stitchery and Folk Art Fusion. In my normal fashion, I sold my other dining set, saved some more pennies and purchased my new table. I decided to ignore trends, styles, friends opinions, HGTV and just go with what felt like home to me.
While visiting a friend before Christmas, I went into a country shop and found a bench. I knew it would be perfect for my mudroom.
My home and my design style are now a perfect compliment to each other and to me, a simple blue jeans and cowgirl boot kinda gal. I've been truly inspired to create and will have new patterns coming soon. I need a table runner, some pillows for the bench a new Folk Art Fusion piece, some stitcheries and mini quilts for the wall and a penny rug for the top of the pie safe. Of course, they will have bunnies. After all, I will always be the crazy bunny lady. hee,hee,hee.
So, I've come full circle with my decorating and returned to the warm, welcoming and relaxed style of Country decor. A perfect style for quilts, stitchery and wool projects to reside in. A perfect place for friends to feel at home. A perfect place for things made by hand.
I'm looking forward to sharing my new designs with you! Have a fun day!
