Get the Look Decor: Country Cottage Evolution

Apr 3, 2011

by Christine Domanic

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

ChristineThis weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the Lebanon, Connecticut farm town cottage of Amanda Wytas-Ackerman. She lives with her husband Rob along with their three children and the newest member of the family Buster, the bull mastiff pup.

Amanda describes her approach to decorating as restyled vintage and says her main goal is to repurpose her antique finds to expose their beauty in a unique and modern way. Between shuffling furniture around, raising three children and frequenting local auctions, flea markets, thrift stores, and Etsy, their home is always evolving in ways that best suit their family life.

    Reminds me of being at my grandma's kitchen table with her pouring fresh cream (from the jersey cow they had) and sugar on the blackberries I'd just picked in the pasture. Just add the smell of biscuits from the oven and it's complete. Great finds and beautiful colors!

    This reminds me of my grandmother's house in Georgia. It has a very southern America feel to it. I just recently found an old vintage rake head at a little store in Pine Mountain, Georgia (which is a great small town if anyone ever has a chance to make it down there). It is perfect for hanging jewelry one. It's something along the lines of this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/70173205/rusty-primitive-garden-rake-head-wall?ref=sr_list_1&ga_search_query=rake+head&ga_search_type=vintage&ga_facet=vintage

    Oooooh! That kitchen is just so lovely and quaint. Why can't we stop building the cookie-cutter houses and go back to handcrafted homes? That's it, I'm building my next house from "found" objects.

    Wonderful article! This was exactly what I needed today to inspire and encourage me to keep trying on Etsy! I am a convert from that other internet site that begins with a small e, having sold there for a decade. I see more and more sellers of vintage and antique wares leaving that other place and joining ranks here on Etsy. In fact I am off to Tweet and Facebook this article and forward it to someone who is still stuck on the other side.
