Location: Baltimore, Maryland
I subscribe to just about every shelter magazine available, and read many decorating blogs for inspiration, and therefore, I have ended up with no exact style. Every week I want to update what I thought I loved the week before. Most of our home is full of antique finds from tiny stores here in Baltimore, my sister's home decor store in New Jersey, and sprinkled with big box store items. Our house was built in 1934, so we have limited closet and cabinet space. Our kitchen utilizes open cabinets, and my daughter's room uses cubbies instead of dressers since we have to optimize wall space with storage to fit it all! We have a lot — I mean a lot of stuff, so we layer a lot of our home accessories, and by that I mean a wall might have a table, a wire rack that holds artwork, and three shelves with books and finds. While I often crave the simplicity of homes with a modern, clean feel, it just can't happen for us. Plus, we're messy! I think our home feels really cozy and lived in, which everyone loves. We have a lot of distressed pieces, but everyone is always surprised by a Stark chair, or mod blue leather chairs in our otherwise urban country living room.
