Home Makeover: Rustic and Refined

A few easy changes and a handful of one-of-a-kind finds go a long way toward making this suburban house into a charming home, filled with flea market finds with rustic appeal.

    • Character Is Key

      A columned porch and diamond-pattern muntins on the windows add old-school charm to this newly built home. Inside, the owner wanted to stay true to the home's cottage-inspired style. To do that, she chose a variety of homespun elements to create a space that looks informal yet stylish.

    • Things Are Looking Up

      A subdued palette of grays and browns gives the open layout of the home a sense of cohesion. In the hallway, antique-look pendants replaced basic builder fixtures and hint at the homeowner's personal style. The beehive-shape light fixtures add plenty of vintage character at a much lower price than true antiques.

    • On the Menu

      After years of gathering decor ideas, the homeowner decided it was time to infuse her home with some of her favorites. Here, using an idea she saw on a TV show, she covered the upper portion of the dining room walls with chalkboard paint. Not only did the walls become a focal point, but they can also serve as an easy-to-read menu board while entertaining. Warm wood floors and furniture warm up the black-and-white walls.

    • Homey and Warm

      Subdued colors enhance the home's coziness, while flea market treasures and homespun accents add intrigue. Here, a variety of textural fabrics, such as burlap curtains and flour-sack pillows, add depth in the living room. The large coffee table turns the living room into a casual eating spot and is big enough to be reach from every seat.

    • Creative Collections

      A seltzer-bottle collection adds bold impact as a mantelscape. The large metal star on the stone fireplace surround once hung on a barn; it serves to distinguish the living room's focal point.

    • A Delicate Balance

      While this makeover added plenty of character, ease was also a goal. Above the island, an old iron pot rack relaxes the tad-too-traditional space and puts pots and pans within easy reach. Removing the door from one of the upper cabinets gave space to show off a collection of white dishware.

    • Sweet Dreams

      In the master bedroom, splashes of bright pink—inspired by the azalea photo that was enlarged and cut into quarters—create a feminine retreat. A dark wood bedroom set grounds the space by providing contrast to the soft blue walls. Lamps mounted directly to the walls above the headboard free up space on the nightstand for decorative elements and reading materials.

    • Cultivated Style

      A built-in dresser turns an awkward alcove into a convenient vanity area. A tree-inspired jewelry holder marries style with function and blends well with the room's floral-inspired decor. A trio of rectangular mirrors above the dresser received a dose of personality with bold pink frames.
