Get the Look Decor: English Countryside handmade and vintage goods

ChristineThis weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the rural Staffordshire, England home of Constança and her husband Tiago. Since moving into their countryside home from Lisbon, Portugal this past year, the couple have been taking their time decorating their new home with a mix of secondhand furnishings and unique personal objects like books, art and travel souvenirs.

Constança and her husband are currently painting all of the walls in their home white. She says she loves the way layers of soft furnishings and shades of aqua, grey and red stand out from the white background.
