Get the LOOK

Country Sampler's Upstyled Home - - HOMES & PROJECTS -

A home like Lucy and Bob McBride’s is filled with prac­ti­cal de­sign ideas that you can put to use in up­styling your own home. Fol­low some of these col­lect­ing ideas and carve out a per­sonal style that sup­ports your abode’s in­te­rior ar­chi­tec­ture. These style points are a great way to look for and cu­rate your home de­sign at flea mar­kets, es­tate sales and auc­tions.

Make your own per­son­al­ized wall clock by team­ing a vin­tage frame with an old clock face. Clock parts and hands are avail­able at craft stores. Lucy uses warm coun­try woods to blend seam­lessly with the barn’s struc­ture. Cut­ting boards and farm ta­bles re­in­force the theme of rus­tic wood through­out. Plain pitch­ers are sim­ple sil­hou­ettes and look pretty hold­ing flow­ers in ev­ery room of your home.

Vin­tage globes are pop­u­lar at yard sales. Up­style the look by cre­at­ing a col­lec­tion of mul­ti­ple sizes dis­played on a con­sole or cup­board top.

Find vin­tage paint­brushes at flea mar­kets for just a few dol­lars.
