Hi and Welcome!
I was recently challenged by a blogger friend to describe my home style and I realized I didn’t really know. When she suggested that we do a blog hop describing our style, I had to ask some friends and neighbors what they thought.
So, if it’s your first time here, I’m so glad you “hopped” over. I’m April and I finally decided my style, summed up in three words, would be industrial, modern and funky.
To be honest, I’m not entirely set on those three words, but it’s been really fun to think about. Industrial was the easy one. When I think of industrial, I think of things like exposed brick, metal and exposed piping. We have a huge wall that I haven’t touched because the other walls are rather busy and I love the brick and don’t want to cover it up.
We also have a brick fireplace as well, and I made a TV surround shelf that hides my cords and stores our DVD player and cable box. I used PVC pipes and made them look like iron pipes. See that post HERE.
And since I had used the faux pipe, I incorporated the industrial pipe a few other places. Since these project were a bit smaller, I used actual plumbing pipe. It seems to be very popular right now and it’s super easy to use.
I also used these super cool large wheels to build a coffee table that I could pull up to the couch and work on and I love it!
So, modern is the word I’m not super sure about. Trendy might be a better word. I recently built our concrete top dining table and it is trendy and industrial.
I am working my way through the dining room now and trying to finish some very modern chairs. I can’t wait to share those with you all, so stick around ;). I also love my birch tree paintings that were so easy and HERE is full tutorial on them, the gallery wall and little table I built.
The word funky came from my husband. When I put up things like my little tree stump end table and antique bike as decor, he looked at me like I was crazy.
So, my whole main room set up looks like this (sorry for the bad photography).
There are lots of other DIY projects in this room, so feel free to look around and if you have any questions, feel free to ask! When you are done perusing around here, make sure you head over to Plum Doodles, who is next on the hop and then visit all of my friends and try and figure out your style, if you don’t already know!
Thanks for stopping by!
