Get the Look Decor: Rustic Cohesion

Nov 27, 2011

by Christine Domanic

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

This weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the Minneapolis, MN home of Carla Fahden. She has merged her neat-freak designer side with her love for nature to create a beautiful home with unexpected quirks and charm.

Visit Carla on Flickr for more photos of her lovely abode and stop by her amazing website Color Me Carla and blog for more interior design inspiration.

Where do you live and with whom?
I live with my hubba-hubba hubby, Jack, and our goldendoodle Fern. We’ve been in St. Louis Park (just outside Minneapolis, MN) for just over three years. This Christmas, we’re getting our second doodle, baby Rosy!

Describe your home decorating style.
I’d say my style is perfectly imperfect. I like things to look a little off, a little worn, and a little unexpected. But at the same time, given my background as a designer (and as an OCD neat freak), I can’t help but obsess over little details until a room looks cohesive and balanced.

I’m a sucker for all things rustic, including branches, antlers and rocks. I also love quirky odds and ends that add an element of surprise. Jack’s style is more modern, so we have clean, polished pieces in our house as well. And then Fern gets to weigh in, of course. She gravitates toward furry, fluffy textiles like sheepskin rugs and angora throws.

Did you decide to decorate in this style or was there an evolution to your decorating process?
When we first moved in three years ago, I just wanted to fill the space as quickly as possible. My style was all over the place and nothing really felt purposeful. But I was happy to not have a load of empty rooms getting infested with dust bunnies.

About a year ago is when I decided it was time to make this house look like “us.” So I sold nearly everything on Craigslist or gave it to Goodwill and started over. This may sound invigorating and refreshing, but it was kind of a hot mess. Suddenly I had a blank canvas to work with. But instead of getting my arse in gear and decorating said blank canvas, I sat and ogled thousands of inspiring spaces on the Internet every night. Finally, I decided to stop looking for inspiration and just buy things that made us happy. A perfect example of this is the vintage roller skate I bought to use as a doorstop. It wasn’t something I saw on a decorating blog or anything, it was just something I was drawn to while out bopping around at my favorite vintage shop (see next paragraph).

Where are your favorite places to shop for home items?
Three places: West Elm, Hunt + Gather (MPLS, MN), Etsy (that’s not a plug). West Elm is great for affordable, well-designed staple pieces. They are constantly getting new things, so it’s always a new experience going to their store. So many big box stores have had the same freaking lamp in their catalogue for years… yawn.

Minnesota residents, repeat after me: HUNT AND GATHER, HUNT AND GATHER, HUNT AND GATHER! If you have not been to this vintage palace at 50th + Xerxes, get your little behind there ASAP! If Etsy had a brick-and-mortar store, this would be it. Every time I visit they have new goodies and everything is reasonably priced. For the perfect Saturday, take a jaunt out to West Elm in Edina and pick up a sleek side table, then bop over to Hunt and Gather and load up on delightful little accessories to dress it with. Hunt and Gather is not paying me to say this. Hmm, maybe they should be though…

And last but not least, Etsy! A couple of months ago, Jack caught me looking for a pencil cup on Etsy. I admitted that it was an odd thing to be looking online for when our kitchen is stocked with plenty of functioning plastic cups. But he was more was amazed that when I typed “pencil cup” into the search box, and endless options appeared. I found a cute vintage elephant cup (complete with a trunk handle) for 10 bucks. The little guy now sits perched next to my ‘puter stuffed with colored pencils. I’m pretty certain I’m the only gal out there with this exact pencil cup. And this, my friends, is why Etsy is the tits.

What inspires you when it comes to decorating?
Oh golly gosh, so many things. I am always inspired by the nature surrounding my parents’ cabin in northern Wisconsin. I am inspired by Jack (I know that sounds cheesy), in that he has quite different taste from me. And of course, there’s endless inspiration on the inter-web. Oh, and I get oddly inspired while walking Fern around the block in the dark. When I see all of the awful decor in some of our neighbors’ brightly lit homes, I’m inspired to run home and make sure our place looks nothing like that.

What is your favorite part about your home?
I’d say the kitchen and bathroom. We remodeled these two rooms from scratch and they reflect my taste perfectly.

Does your home hold any strong memories?
For sure. Getting to kick it every day and night for the past three years with my very best friend.

    Lovely home. Fern is adorable. Hunt and Gather is a must to visit when in the Minneapolis area. I'd read several articles about it and had to see for myself what all the hype was about. That was 3 years ago and I'm still wanting to go back. I did't get to explore every nook and cranny. Its now on my bucket list. Definately a Etsy-style brick and mortar.

    I can't remember, but I saw your home on either Design Sponge or Apartment Therapy recently. Great exposure! I love you place like crazy, so happy that you were able to share it with such a broad audience! :)
