Feature Friday: When I Grow Up…

This weeks home tour comes to us from Meghan of When I Grow Up…  Her blog is great and I fell in love with her beautiful older home on Paul Street. 

I asked Meghan to describe her design style and here is what she said:
“I suppose my style is to take elements from various periods and places and attempt to weave them into something thoughtful and beautiful.  
I like to breathe life into crusty old things; I live for great, inexpensive flea market finds; I tend to start with lots of neutrals then accent with pops of color and a modern punch here or there. I cherish a piece with a story – either ours or some distant stranger’s. I guess I would say that my style is eclectic, and if something catches my eye, is functional, and makes me happy, I go with it.  Mostly, I like to be surrounded by things that I adore and have meaning to me.”
I love that.
Take a look at her previous home on Paul Street.  

The Entry Way
This antique ice chests sits in the entry.
Here is the view going up the stairs.
The Living Room
The Kitchen
She made that cute towel rack. 
The Dining Room
This table was made out of floor boards from an old opera house. 
Master Bedroom and Bath
She made this neat little “getting ready area” in a nook she had in her room. 
The Nursery
Her dad made that cute hat rack. 
This old cart has such a cool story behind it! 
She made that mobile and…
… that cute owl pillow!
The Full Bath

Aren’t those ceiling tiles beautiful! 
Guest Bedroom
Thanks so much to Meghan for sharing her home with us and check out her blog for more details and pictures of her new home updates.

    What a warm house! So many little elements I love in her decor–the bar cart in her living room, beautiful white dining chairs, that red desk in her bedroom and that incredible wall color in her guest bedroom. Loved all of it.
