We are still in the process of decorating our spare bedroom. We finally painted it a lovely subtle shade of purple as I've long been wanting to do. I would like to add a new end table and a dresser, but it's not a priority for us at the moment. We rarely have overnight guests so the room isn't often used.
So, for now, the room still holds my husband's childhood dresser. I have topped it with one of my grandmother's beautiful doilies, as well as two finds from the annual (very cheap) basket sale that I so love to go to. The little wooden guy with the three drawers is a past basket sale find. The purple vase is a find from this year's sale.
I added the sweet little pitcher set I got at the Salvation Army's green-friendly April sale. Anchoring the group is the framed Japanese paper (printed with dogs) that my friend once wrapped a present in.
I love to mix vintage, new and sentimental pieces when I'm decorating. How about you? What kind of style do you go for in your home?
Linking up with my beautiful friend Wendy, who lives in Florida and is wishing for fall. I guess the grass is always greener...
