I call our 1977 brick ranch “rustic elegant.” Leading into the front door is a lovely courtyard full of plants and an Italian pottery water fountain that are our home’s defining features. Inside, find painted and unfinished wood furniture, ethnic textiles, one-of-a-kind accessories, local pottery, crusty columns, old doors, and whatever I discover as life goes on. I am excited to show you how you can shop my favorite rustic home decor sources.
Honestly, I have not been shopping, or junking, locally for months. But last week I took myself for a little drive over to Thomasville, NC to the Chartreuse Barn. It’s been a favorite destination for years. Sometimes I find a treasure, sometimes I don’t. Regardless, the smiling faces and wonderful vendors are worth making the trip for a visit. The two barns are always stocked with treasures from near and far to suit many decorating styles.
Seems like I just posted about our den (see it here). On the mantel was a heavy, huge round gilded mirror. I have always liked it and had no plans to change a thing. Really!
