“Go To Your Room!”

Do you remember being sent to your room when you were a child? I do. That was the worse punishment ever! I don’t know why it was so bad. I mean, that’s where all my toys were, and it was decorated exactly the way I wanted–rainbow colored heart bedding, a fat blue lamp…you get the picture.

All these years later, it shouldn’t be a punishment to spend time in your bedroom, but to be honest, for some people, it still is. Why? Because it’s the one room in the house that sometimes gets neglected. You know what I’m talking about…hand-me-down furniture, outdated bedding, and bare walls. We spend a lot of our energy decorating the rest of the house, but when it comes to the bedroom, sometimes we just lose steam.
 
 
 
 
 

We all deserve to have a bedroom we want to spend time in, so let’s decorate! Start with your bedding–you’ll get the most impact with this small change. Did you know that Vintage Home offers a selection of beautiful new bedding? Stop by the shop this week to see the new Kingston and Bianca collections, plus see samples of all the bedding we can order in 1-2 weeks.

And of course, while you’re here, check out all of the great beds, dressers, armoires, lamps, mirrors, artwork, and other accessories that can transform your bedroom from “just so-so” into the oh-so-beautiful sanctuary–where you can send yourself!

Here Comes The Bride!



Over the weekend I heard about a bride who was making her wedding bouquet out of vintage jewelry, and I thought, “What a great idea!” Of course, I was primarily thinking of the deadline for my next blog… But then I put my bridal cap on, and I loved the idea even more! What a fun and creative way to incorporate a family heirloom (without having to put it on your wedding dress!). And when the wedding is all over with, you have a special keepsake that will last forever.

And then today by sheer coincidence (I think), I met Amy Malone, one of our customers and a bride-to-be (Congrats, Amy!). We started talking about the vintage jewelry we have in the shop, and she told me that she’s planning to make her own bouquet using vintage costume jewelry. The next thing I know, we’re on Pinterest together looking at sample bouquets she had pinned for inspiration. I’m attaching a few of my favorite photos, but there were literally dozens to look at–in all shapes, sizes, and colors.

 

Whether you’re looking for wedding jewelry for yourself, your bouquet, or simply a great gift, Vintage Home is a great place to start! We have a beautiful collection of affordable vintage necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches, hairpieces, and cocktail rings, and there are always more on the way!
