As part of a six week challenge I redecorated my porch. My porch was in desperate need of an update. I had always loved the romantic vibe of the Shabby Chic style and thought, why not. This is my Shabby Chic Porch. Everything was from found items. The bench is made from and old headboard, the cafe table and chairs were once your standard black color. The wicker chair had been discarded and was in horrible condition. My husband made the trumeau mirror and the coffee table. The pillow is made from an old crochet tablecloth. You can read all about how the porch came together as part of the «One Room Challenge,» by going to the beginning of the first week by going to this address http://www.homeandlifestyledesign.com/2013/10/one-room-challenge-week-1.html There are a total of six weeks where the progress of the porch is revealed. I would love to have you come visit me at Home and LifestyleDesign
Hello, my name is Patty and I blog all about houses at Home and Lifestyle Design. My background is in new home construction where I built traditional homes from 3,000 to 5,500 sq ft. I have always been passionate about design and architecture of not just homes but of all things. Interior design school helped me to see the details of all design. I hope you will come and visit my blog sometime and take a look around.
* “Glimpses of Christmas” *
For the holidays I like to do a little decorating throughout the house, nothing over the top, some simple vignettes, lots of shiny ornaments and items that remind me of others and past events. I adore white, silver and gold, but it is hard not to incorporate some traditional green and red holiday decor that has been given to us over the years. Somehow it all seems to work together and brings us joy during the holidays. On Wednesday December the 11th I will be participating in the, «Tis The Season,» Blog tour where I will show more of my holiday decor, if you have time I would love for you to stop by.
