My Favorite Room

   Everyone has a favorite room in their home. It sounds strange, but my favorite room in my parent’s house when I was growing up was the powder room off the kitchen. I have always loved antiques and vintage decor, and when the movie “Titanic” came out, I thought that every decorative detail in the movie was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen! We moved into my parent’s current house soon after “Titanic” had come out. When I walked into the powder room, I thought I had walked onto the “Titanic” set. It had wayne’s coating across the bottom, and a dark mural wall paper above that. It also had a large, gold Rococo mirror and a pedestal sink with a gold and crystal faucet. The final touch was an ornate, vintage vanity light atop the mirror. I would sometimes just stare at the little space thinking about how beautiful it was, and how I could not wait to decorate a room in my future home just like that one day.

   Needless to say, my taste has changed a bit since my Titanic loving days, but I do still love the vintage look. My favorite room in my home mixes, vintage, rustic, and shabby pieces. It is a little bit of every style that I really love. It started out very simple and shabby, like this…

When we first got done with out renovations, I thought I wanted everything white and shabby and girly. This lasted about two months. I then began to add some natural, rustic touches to give it the warm feel that I was really wanting. I refinished the chandelier, painted the fireplace, distressed the buffet, and found a great trunk to use as a coffee table.

 I am finally happy with the room, and it is really my favorite space in the house. Here it is now!

    Hi Clara!
    Thank you very much! The large euros along the back are from the Shabby Chic line at Target. I collected the smaller the smaller throw pillows from the local antique store called Queen of Hearts here in Atlanta. The linen lumbar pillow with the brown design is Aiden Gray, and I have seen it for sale on and I am not sure of the maker of the other pillows. Thanks for checking out the blog!
