They say home is where the heart is. I guess, for me anyway, this is so true as my husband and I have put so much heart into making our house a home. Being surrounded by things that I love like beautiful books, family heirlooms, wedding photos, and my husbands favorite recipe books warms my heart.
Tray: West Elm, Teapot: vintage from my Grandmother, Teacups: vintage from my Great-Grandmother

I like to fill my home with a mix of new and old treasures. There’s a little bit of his and some of mine combined with things we have got together. Sure, we have a coffee table from Ikea….and a bunch of other stuff too. Who doesn’t? Decorating your home should be just like getting dressed. I might wear my fave skinny designer jeans with an inexpensive t-shirt and vintage leather jacket. In my house I combine my Ikea coffee table with a chic tray and vintage family pieces. It’s in how each of us choose our personal mixes that gives us our unique style.
