I know that many of us like to start each new year by organizing our homes and maybe even switching up the decor a bit. I hope this new regular feature, Blogger Style, will provide you with some design inspiration.
I am starting the series off with the gorgeous home of Heather, the blogger behind Tatter and Fray. If you are a lover of thrifty treasures, Heather's blog is not to be missed. She has an amazing eye for unusual vintage pieces that fit beautifully into the modern home. I feel like she has a fair bit of luck too, but maybe she just spends a lot of time thrifting?
Heather lives in Indianapolis, Indiana in a 1940s bungalow (which she refers to as "a never-ending renovation project") with her rescued bulldog beagle mix, Gus. (Is he not the cutest thing ever?) By day, Heather works in higher education administration. The rest of the time, you can find her haunting local thrift shops and flea markets sourcing vintage treasures for her Etsy shop and blogging at Tatter and Fray. Heather is especially drawn to jadeite, vintage pottery, Art Deco and Hollywood Regency design and is a self-described “old house junkie.”
Heather's design philosophy
"Growing up, we moved often. I think my interest in decorating evolved as a way to help myself feel at home in new places. Now, decorating has turned into a hobby and a creative outlet. I love rooms that combine old and new, modern and traditional or high-end and budget-friendly elements. I believe that vintage pieces, family heirlooms and objects collected over time add soul to a home."

Heather recently participated in a challenge to make over her living room in just six weeks. Have a look at more photos of the incredible results. I am truly inspired by Heather's ability to incorporate stunning vintage finds into her home in a thoroughly modern way.
