What a pleasure to be a guest at Debbiedoo’s.
This has been my home for over 6 years. I chose this house for the tall ceilings and a roomy kitchen. It was a builder’s spec home and a perfect, clean slate for me to decorate.
Here in Connecticut, there are charming towns with little old cottages lining the streets. A very quaint style that I fell in love with when we moved to this area. My decorating style has always been about re-purposing but coming to New England gave me a whole new appreciation for old.
This home displays charming vintage accents that make it feel lived in and loved.
I’m Holly, from Down to Earth Style
Welcome to my home…
A colonial style on the outside…
a little bit of cottage and more on the inside.
This is a $10 vintage door that leads to our basement.
The entryway floors are stained in a checker pattern.
I like to decorate above doorways and windows. I made that planter out of pallet wood.
I installed Board and Batten wainscoting on most of our main floor. It’s so easy to do and makes a space casual and quaint.
I recently made those pendant lights from hanging garden planters.
I took out the original island that matched my cabinets and built a new one.
If you want to do something similar -
The tiny half bath on the main level is a bit shabby chic.
This is my office/dining room. I brought in our vintage picnic table from the outdoor patio and layered some burlap on top for a cloth.
I have a love for old doors…. (Really?…You say?)
Our master bedroom got a makeover last winter.
I have two really sweet boys.
This is Luke’s room.
(Unfortunately, I never made it around to Ben’s)
If you love my house and you want to live in Connecticut – you can buy this place.
We are moving to Virginia.
I’m so excited to redecorate another house all over again.
