    I like how they tell you how to do vintage styled rooms without it being too cluttered or all vintage. Just using vintage pieces here and there, use simple background colors to make vintage pictures/pieces stand out. Simple chairs to show off the vintage decor in the dining room. So many great tips in that article.

  16. I love the article about Vintage Decorating for any style. I am a huge fan of vintage pieces but sometimes feel unsure how to make them work in my space.

  60. Lynne Pearce says:

    I love the ideas for budget-friendly furniture. I’ve been looking for a dresser for my daughter’s room and have not been able to find the perfect piece. I am now going to look for something that we can renovate with paint and new hardware to get the look we are after. Great inspiration!

  61. Allison Downes says:

    I like the adding pops of color tips they have

    TIP 1!!

  65. Chatelaine says:

    Ohhh adding natural elements! i’m all for modern but I like the warmth of natural elements

  66. I like the idea of adding color through accessories!

  67. I loved the section about the different vintage styles and how vintage does not only mean one idea. I think many people hear “vintage” and think that there is only one right way to present the style. This section was eye-opening and showed that vintage can be brought to any style that you choose. I am a simple country girl so of course I loved the vintage country farmhouse styles, but it was cool to see vintage brought to other styles such as modern and French country styles. I would love to be able to apply more vintage ideas from all styles to my space. Now, that I’ve seen what can be done it makes me excited to start forming some of my own ideas. :)

  68. I love the outdoor lighting ideas, the one with the wine bottles is probably my favorite!


  69. Pam White says:

    It’s true about what the power of paint can do for a plain little piece of furniture. I’ve painted a couple of pieces. It can give an old piece of furniture an entire new life! Love the coppery gold look they used! Hmmmmm, I’m thinking! :-)

  70. Susan Christy says:

    I like the article about adding pops of color.

  71. I like the decorating tips with polka dots. Polka dots are great for mixing with other patterns.

  72. I love the pallet DIY crafts!

  73. This is the key to me: find pieces that have meaning or that you can relate to in some manner

    I have one decorating rule I follow: I have to love it.
