My Home Style: Vintage, Cozy, Farmhouse

I’m excited to be joining up again today with some blogging friends to discuss home styles.  Today is my turn to share with you what I consider my home style. I am Amy, and I love talking about home.  My style can probably best be summed up in…..

Three words: Vintage, Cozy, Farmhouse

What do these 3 words mean to me?

Vintage: I enjoy thrifting and antiquing to find previously used pieces to collect and use throughout my home.  These pieces are not necessarily true antiques by definition, but may have a story or are meaningful to us for some reason. I find it fun when time allows to scour stores and find those one of a kind pieces.   Throughout my home, I have several collections; vintage cameras, white Ironstone dishes, juice glasses and silver cups.  Two of my favorite pieces I own are a vintage fan and kitchen scale.

Furniture such as this antique table turned into a sink , antique mirrors, and my favorite piece, a hand me down dresser from my great grandparents, is used in different ways throughout my home.  To me, these pieces help to create an eclectic and meaningful home.  One that was designed over time and not straight out of a catalog.

Cozy: Cozy means to me a warm, comfortable, casual feeling.  I want my home to be a place where people can relax, get comfortable and hang out.  Casual and welcoming.  Lots of pillows, warm colors, textures, and blankets help to achieve that feeling.  I have 3 children so there is definitely nothing stuffy or off-limits in my home!

Farmhouse: Think Joanna Gaines!  If I could have her come and redo my house I would want everything to be exactly like her show Fixer Upper.  Farmhouse style to me is a broad category. I’d love to have an apron sink, a four-poster bed and a claw foot tub, but those aren’t in my home.  What I do have is wrought iron fixtures, burlap, painted and chippy furniture, wood floors, baskets, a cup rack,  3 tier serving pieces, a sliding barn door, open shelving, benches and a wood table.  All of these are farmhouse style as well.

I think the best home style is a home where you feel warm, comfortable, and loved!

  1. A sofa or a love seat could help bring velvet into your space, but if the splurge on a piece of furniture isn’t in your budget, consider throw pillows, poufs, or even curtains for a dramatic look. 

  2. […] been a while since we did this hop, so if you need a refresher, here are the previous two post: My Home Style Blog Hop and My Home Style Blog Hop Christmas Tree […]
