"Make do and style" is one of those decor tags that can mean different things to different people; I think, that is what I have grown to appreciate about it most. I was reminded just this week, it can also be a celebration of making the most out of what you already own. Tanya from Scandi Coast Home likes to refer to it as ShoPPin' the HouSe and I have noticed that it is a common movement among other decor bloggers right now too. I love it! It is definitely NOT about NOT SPENDING MONEY because we love that, right? I believe it lays within the wish that most of us now days genuinely like to be resourceful; it gives us and our homes meaning. Have you tried it? I dare you to ask yourself this question, "What do I already own??" Have you thought of something? Now, can you maybe slap a little paint on it, decorate it with a tassel or better still simply bring it out from the attic or cupboard as it is and show it off in some way? Maybe you could do a vignette of home finds? I bet they end up being treasures that you will love and appreciate for a long time.
|Love this roadside "antique tea trolley" find, come herb stand. Can you believe that it did not even need to be painted; it was already this lovely antique green?? Score envy! Divine Styling and photography by Jamie Walsh. Follow on Instagram @ Eclectic Me|
