Feature Friday: The Lovely Cupboard

I love the name of Heather’s blog, the Lovely Cupboard. It has such a nice ring to it. Her home is just as lovely as her blog. I asked Heather to introduce her home and here is what she said
“Hi there! I’m Heather from The Lovely Cupboard. I had to pinch myself when Kirsten asked if she could feature my house. Being one of my favorite blogs, I stop by 6th Street often to find design inspiration. I’ve discovered that my own personal style is a reaction to make my first home, a 1940’s Tudor style cottage, feel fresh rather than just old. My husband and I picked our house because we love older homes and the character that comes with them.  While I’ve always collected antique and vintage pieces, I started feeling like my home was looking more a like a museum than the fresh space I’d envisioned. I started incorporating bold fabrics and new pieces mixed in with flea market finds to make sure that things didn’t feel too stuffy. Luckily, I’ve also inherited some pieces that my family has collected from literally all over the world. These heirlooms add a global feel to my house and have such meaning to me as well. While my to do list for each room seems to keep growing longer, I’m working on being content with the progress we’ve made so far. I’m always on the hunt for budget-conscience DIY projects to imitate looks I love. Welcome to my home!”

Thank you so much Heather for sharing your home with us! 
Not only is Heather’s home beautiful but check out what she did with her classroom
I wish my teachers were this cool when I was in school.

    Such a fun, lively house. It's adorable. Heather- are you in Michigan? I would just be excited to know a design/food enthusiast here! I recently moved here from Utah, and live in the Bloomfield area. It would be fun if you were close… I'll look forward to reading your blog.

    Beautiful home. So nice to see white appliances w/white cabinets. Creates such a clean look. I'm in the minority, but stainless leaves me cold.

    I love her classroom, btw. Her home is so lovely! I feel that the combination of elements is just so perfectly done. I'd like to move in!

    This is one of my favorite features so far…wait do I say that a lot??? (: Seriously though I love the way she's used old with new and that her house truly reflects that it is a home with some soul, I love her vignettes, she's got some sweet skills in that department!!! Looks like I have another new blog to follow!!

    What a charming home, I love all the details and the perfectly styled bookshelves. Much to be inspired from!

    What a stunning space. I love everything inside and outside in this home!

    Linda, I'm with you on stainless. Laurie & Staci, I rearrange everything in my home probably 20 times before I feel it looks right. The "vignettes" and booksehlf comments were a big boost of confidence! Thanks to everyone who stopped by the blog today.

    dang… there are so many great shots. typically, people can make any place look good with a few images- but this girl is the real deal. loved seeing her home… and her classroom!

    Oh my! Just look at all those lovely details! I'm in love with all the textiles, especially the rug near the bottom (with the adorable pooch on it)!

    What a beautiful home! I can't even remember all the things I loved long enough to make a list here! A few things though- the chevron chairs (and well ALL the upholstered chairs) are beautiful, the open shelving in the kitchen, and the brick wall in the den! So much interesting, fun style!

    An adorable house – touch of character in every corner. I am smitten with her chevron back chairs!

    What a beautiful living room. I am obsessed with the green and white chair. Have you tried sitting in it? Is it comfortable?
