Flea Market Décor
From lockers full of art supplies to Mason jars readied with brushes, Stacy focuses on eye-pleasing, vintage-pretty organization throughout her home. And it’s something she keeps in mind when thrifting. “My favorite things to look for while thrifting are items that can corral objects in all different sizes,” she says. Since her kids are little Picassos, she comes up with clever ways to stash away art necessities, and she manages to wrangle all the toys in a way that’s still visually beautiful. As an organization aficionado who finds storage solutions at flea markets and from what she has on-hand at home, Stacy advises, “Think outside the box. Look inside your kitchen cupboards, your garage and even kids’ toys for ideas. If an item has a spot to contain something, it can be a storage solution. If it is unique or beautiful in texture or form, then you have a storage container that is one-of-akind and will make your space more interesting.”
the design goal of the room, you may have a room filled with vintage treasures or only need a couple pieces, but either way, some vintage always makes a room feel complete to me.”
Stacy decorates the rooms of her home by acting as what she calls “an eclectic shopper,” something that she believes shows throughout her spaces. “I can get just as excited finding the perfect piece at a high-end store as I can at a thrift store,” she says.
She also has a helpful vintage-shopping tip to share, saying, “I’m very visual, and many times I need to see something in the space in order for me to know if it’s the right fit or not. I have taken a photo of each room in my house on my phone. That way, when I’m out and about and find something I think I love, I look at the photos to help me visualize if the item will enhance my space or not. Doing this has saved me a lot of money and time returning.”
Stacy shares her approach to vintage and handmade décor, saying, “Creativity is an important part of our lives. Our home is an outlet for me to express this.” She enriches her spaces with her own DIY creations and pieces that remind her of family, and it’s plain to see that this home certainly has soul.
"The vibrant colors are balanced out with lots of neutrals, blacks and whites.”
“I CAN GET JUST AS EXCITED FINDING the perfect piece at a high-end store as I can at a thrift store,” she says.
