Hello, Savor Home fans! I'm Donna from a perfect gray and I'm thrilled to be at Savor Home today while Tiffany works her way through tax season. Good luck, Tiffany, and thanks so much for having me.
One thing I know for sure about my style is....it's all about the mix. Old and new, high (end) and low, a good mix of treasured items gives a home character and style.
I'm a nut for antiques but I find that mixing them with new pieces really makes them stand out.
in my living room
I have a pair of antique french wallpaper panels hanging in my living room. I bought them from my favorite antique dealers years ago and I'd consider them more high-end. Over both of the panels, I hung sunburst mirrors, and the one you see is brand new from a discount store!
in my dining room
I recently bought this chandelier at a thrift shop for forty dollars. It's a higher end look, but for a great lower price, just like the chippy garden statue and the over-sized wine bottle on my console. I like the mix of those pieces with my antique mirror, a much more expensive auction purchase.
in my kitchen
I love this little silver-plated pitcher with a Bakelite handle and top. I also found it at a thrift store for a couple of dollars. It's a great stylish yet low-end find for my utensils.
It's definitely harder to achieve a mix in your home but so worth it. I am constantly inspired by other bloggers and I always have fun trying different things.
Tiffany, thanks for letting me share a little of my home and style with your readers. You're the best!
