Best of January 2015: Vintage Homes & Decor Trends

Houzz Award badgeOur January blog posts show that we started the year in a very good mood as we had lots to celebrate. We finally moved into our 1920s vintage bungalow renovation and we completed our first 10 years in the antiques and home decor business.  We also won a Best of Houzz 2015 award for Customer Satisfaction. That was the icing on the cake!

Let’s revisit some of our favorite posts from the first month of what we hope will be a wonderful year for you, too!

Antique Renaissance Buffet Kitchen DinerWe started by looking back at our top 12 antiques and decor blog posts of 2014. It was hard to narrow down all the tours of customers’ homes, tips about antiques and decorating, and posts on travel and entertaining to just 12 favorites, but that was my task!  I hope you agree and like them too. For example, the picture above was one of the most popular photos we shared on Facebook this year – everyone loved the antique French Renaissance buffet in our customer’s California kitchen.

We always like to look at new decor trends at the beginning of the year, so we loved being inspired by the various Paint Colors of the Year for 2015. Some are pretty and fresh, some are dramatic and bold, but they are all fun to browse.

Our Vintage Life: Paint the Walls post showed how we made our house look like a home. The decorating included Greg’s creative touch to transform the original beaded board ceiling.

We delivered a prettily carved small French Country cabinet to Melinda and she graciously gave us the full tour of her house. It features so many lovely details, you just have to see for yourself in the French Country Jam Cabinet Client Spotlight.

I wasn’t sure how the first month of 2015 could have flown by so quickly. But now I look at how busy we’ve been, it’s not so surprising! I’ll be back with more blog posts on fine antiques for regular folks and other home decor inspirations in February. Let us know if there is a topic you would like me to cover.
