Style File: Modern Traditional

According the the article by Ms. Emily Henderson, Modern Traditional Style is a traditional, timeless style, a little bit modern, but also a little bit worn and rustic with shaker elements. The style feels humble and lived-in, modern yet welcoming, all with an heirloom and handmade look throughout. Furniture pieces are collected and a little worn (thanks for your help on this kids!), paint isn’t too perfect, metals are mixed, lines are clean and nothing is over adorned. The overall color pallet is warm neutrals (soft whites, creams, taupe, grays, light browns) with earthy wood tones and pops of metallic. Artwork adds a highly curated pop of color and largely reflects the natural world. It’s the perfect imperfections and subtle, simple details and just a few decorations that make the look. AGH! So. Perfectly. My. Home. Here are some examples from our newly renovated dining room.

August Trunk Sale 2019, Week 3

For the third week of the August Trunk Sale I am marking down my large quilts, art quilts, and table top quilts! The large quilts all range in size from moderate to large throws, and a few are even twin sized. I wouldn’t normally mark these large quilts down, as they take so much time, energy and materials, but this is the August Trunk Sale after all!
