If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, "Your home should reflect YOU!"  Every person has a unique personal style that should be expressed in their surroundings.  But in today's cookie cutter world, it's so easy to just do the same thing everyone else is doing.  I'm here to encourage you to get inspired and show the world your uniqueness by starting in your home!

I love adding my own personal touch to pieces that I find while out shopping.  Local shops are a fantastic starting point because they often sell one of a kind items that you can't find at big box retailers.  I stopped into Old Creamery Antiques in Middlebury to search for funky decor that reflected my taste.  I love antiques and vintage stores because you never know what you're going to find!  As I meandered from room to room of the store I spotted so many fun objects that could really add flair to any room.

I was particularly attracted to a wide selection of antique frames.  What I love about old frames is that there are so many ways to use them.   You can paint them any color.  You could fit a beautiful frame with a mirror and hang it in your entryway for a one of a kind statement.  What about fitting an antique frame with a piece of wood and painting it with chalkboard paint to use in your kitchen or dining room to write the menu on?  You can also elevate the look of your office by framing your calendar. The sky is really the limit!

The point is to find something that speaks to your personal style and don't be afraid to change it up to fit your needs.  Your home should be as unique and special as you are so get out there and create a space that reflects your personality.  Remember, a house is just a house until you make it a home.  Happy shopping!
