Over the years, my personal style has changed. And so to has the look of our home. Through out all the changes, I've managed to merge old pieces (like my white sofa from 1998) with new (simple pillow covers from Crate & Barrel) and thrift, like this years $15 faux bamboo coffee table I painted gold with a pair of modern end tables I picked up at the Salvation Army a few years back.

It's definitely been a labor of love, but it also shows that you don't need to run out to RoomsToGo and buy a whole room, nor do you need expensive custom pieces for your space to stylishly represent your lifestyle today. If you build your space on a strong foundation - neutral colors and quality furniture - your space can adapt through your changing lifestyle or your latest color obsession!

Accessories and textiles in textures and prints has also been key to the (many) updates. I think because I like and use similar lines in my finds, but various scale and proportions, I'm able to mix & remix my pieces for fresh looks. Here's a peek of yet another update downstairs in our living space and some of the dining area restyled for Summer...
