I met my husband in college almost 25 years ago and we’ve been married for over 22 years.We’ve lived in our 1964 ranch style house for the past 7 years with our 2 teenage daughters, and there’s always some type of project (or three) in the works.
It’s been in several places around the house and on the porch, but I really like it here…for now! The space isn’t huge, but is just right for the 4 of us. But I find them cheap and have so much fun with them. It reminds me of how I used to play “house” when I was a little girl. Here’s some more of our fall decor with natural items.Moral of the story: if you really love it, buy it if possible. The antique hutch in the photo above gets restyled seasonally. One thing we like to do as a family is hiking or just being out in nature, so I really like to use natural, organic items whenever possible.Just the windows, fireplace, and some comfy, casual furniture. Another one of my favorite finds is the section of vintage iron gate that’s propped up behind the lanterns in the photo above.The sofa got a makeover last year with a simple dropcloth slipcover. I bought it from a local antique shop a couple of years ago and had no idea what I would do with it at the time, but knew that I had to have it.They had shiny, round brass knobs which I switched out to oil-rubbed bronze, and that helped.
I still don’t love them, but they’ve grown on me and I don’t dislike them enough to paint them.
The living room is the first room you see when you enter the house.
I call this my space, since there’s no television or electronics in here. Or go here to see a different furniture arrangement for this space as well as some of the other elements of the room.
Today, I am sharing our 1960’s ranch style home tour. I’ve admired and followed her blog for years and am so honored to be sharing my home with her and you.
Thanks so much for having my home on your tour, Debbie! My name is Angie and I blog at Postcards from the Ridge.
The family room is where we spend the most time in on nights and weekends.
