Get the Look Decor: Labor of Love

Jun 26, 2011

by Christine Domanic

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

ChristineThis weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the 1930s home of Allison Miller. Over the course of the last year, her home has been a labor of love, with friends pitching in to help all along the way. Visit Allison on Flickr for more inspiring photos of her home renovation.

Where do you live and with whom?
I live in Sanford, FL with my husband Curtis and our parrot Peanut. It’s a very old southern Florida town with a lot of history and beautiful older homes. The house used to be part of a celery farm, and we’re always finding funny old things when we dig in the yard.

   
   

 

How would you describe your home decorating style?
The style of our house was really inspired by the house itself and what I could scrounge up at the thrift store. I didn’t want to bring home anything that would clash horribly with the feel of the rooms, but I also wanted to give the house a clean, bright feel with lots of simple lines and furniture. I also love to read, so I wanted the house to feel cozy, with a lot of places to curl up with a good book.

   
   
   

Where are your favorite places to shop for home items?
I love hunting for things while traveling. Some of my favorite pieces in our home came from street markets in Greece, Mexico and Turkey! I think the little souvenirs that you bring back with you add memories to your home. I also love scouring the thrift stores and flea markets around town. And of course, Etsy is my go-to source for prints and artwork. It’s no secret that I love birds, and aruppel, mincingmockingbird, and eastwitching have done some of my favorite pieces!

   
   

What inspires you when it comes to decorating?
I’m inspired most by items with a history and a splash of color. Old chipped Bakelite Brownie cameras, faded globes that still mark Russia as the U.S.S.R., and fogged glass seltzer bottles are some of my favorite things. I’m also inspired by nature and wildlife, especially birds. I spend a lot of time with birds of prey, both as a falconer, and a volunteer at a local raptor rehabilitation center, and I love the beauty and grace of feathers and talons.

   
   

What is your favorite part about your home?
My favorite part about our home is its character. We looked for a home for over a year, and we fell in love with its history and 1930s details. It’s hard to find things like window benches and built-in cabinets modern homes. Although many of the windows are painted shut and some of the doors stick, it’s perfect for us.

   
   

Does your home hold any strong memories?
Our home had been vacant for almost two years before we bought it, so there was quite a bit of fixing up to do when we moved in, and we have many memories of painting parties and cold nights with no heat or hot water. Still, it made us appreciate our friends and fireplaces all the more.

   
   

In her spare time, Allison is a practicing falconer and volunteer at the Avian Reconditioning Center in Orlando, Florida where she helps to care for birds of prey. She also plays women’s flat track roller derby with the Orlando Psycho City Derby Girl.

Allison’s love for collecting vintage dresses led her to create a full time business on Etsy, adVintagous, where she sells vintage clothing, accessories and home decor. Read more about Allison in the Quit Your Day Job post featuring her shop.

    Love your use of the globes; just repainted my kitchen a deep blue-green called Grecian Sea and the use of globes on the cabinets was inspiring! Thanks!

    Your house looks great, I was especially taken with the bookcase with globes displayed on top. I was wondering how (or if) you incorporate your bird & all it's stuff into your home decor. (Since one of my roommates is a large parrot.) To Old Maid's House: Hang up plates with inexpensive wire plate hangers from "Bed & Bath..." or "Michael's" (craft chain store), etc. I used to have them on the walls in a perpetually damp bathroom.
