Blended home styles keep popping up as homeowners embrace an eclectic approach to design that celebrates appealing details from differing styles. Think industrial modern, mid-century rustic, or even jappalachia. When Jon and Jamie started planning their new home in Covington, Louisiana, they merged their favorite design styles to create a rustic modern farmhouse. “We built this as a home to raise our family in,” Jon says. “We love the nod to a simpler time when farmhouses were designed for functionality. We wanted it to have a warm, timeless feel while still reflecting some of the rustic modern style we like so much.” ... Read More

Featured Customer | Schoolhouse Gooseneck Light Offers Vintage Character
Oh, the lowly powder room. Most often a small space with a token light fixture, the powder room is seen as a quick pit stop rather than a destination for thoughtful design. But Natalie, from My Vintage Porch, had big, beautiful ideas for her small powder room space. “This is a room we wanted to renovate for quite some time, but we needed budget-friendly ideas,” Natalie says. “This space had only builder-grade touches, and we wanted to add more character.” Natalie covered over the tired, striped walls with shiplap and replaced the pedestal sink with, believe it or not, an old record cabinet! ...
