Get the Look Decor: Love at First Sight

This weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the Sarasota, Florida home of Martha Stinnett. She purchased her 1923 bungalow a little over a year ago and claims it was love at first sight. The home was virtually untouched and still had all of its original built-ins, pine floors, doors, and moldings. Martha simply added a few modern updates to the home’s paint colors, wiring and kitchen while keeping in tune with the charm and feel of its past.

Martha’s favorite collection is a series of vintage dog portraits which decorate the walls of her bathroom. A kind of tribute to her own dog, Daisy, most of the portraits are from the 1950s through the ’70s and were painted by the dogs’ owners. She has a strict rule that the paintings cannot cost more that $10, which helps her keep her collection to a manageable size.


AmelieArt, $200.


westernotterhico, $30.


outtatheblue, $55.

Martha says she has been buying, wearing, and collecting vintage clothing for years and is currently obsessing over vintage fabrics, dog paintings, anything Art Deco, travel trailers and wallpaper. Check out her Etsy shop at sillyrabbitvintage where she sells vintage clothing and accessories for men and women, and be sure to stop by her blog Silly Rabbit Vintage.
