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!
