Vintage Inspiration # 107 Sophia's Decor

There are so many of us that think of Fall as our favorite season. I think it may be that we love our homes, decorating, and the idea of the warmth and comfort that the cooler seasons bring. We love Spring and Summer, but there's something about Fall that causes us to hunt and gather and then give our homes those special touches of nature that we only find at Harvest Time. Kristen from Sophia's has one of those blogs that is a constant source of inspiration to me. She has such an amazing sense of style, and it translates into each and every creative project she comes up with. This photo is quintessentially Fall in my book.



Kristen recently found this wonderful old planter box, 
and gave it an update with some paint and her personalized touch,
the "Friends and Family" hand painted on the side.



Kristen knows her way around a great paint project. She has just the right balance of color and distressing, taking vintage pieces and updating them with a modern trendy vibe.



Here, she brings organization to an art form
 with her wonderful office/studio.





The photo below of the bed she refurbished for her daughter,
is one of the attention grabbing posts that introduced me to her.


Kristen has generously shared her transfer techniques 
that give such an updated look to her wonderful chair makeovers.


Isn't this desk beyond gorgeous?


...and she still finds time to make wonderful jewelry!


If you haven't met Kristen from Sophia's Decor, then you'll want to go visit, and then be prepared to spend time going back through her blog for all the inspiration that this talented gal can whip up. Thanks so much Kristen, for being such a sweet gal and one of my DIY inspirations!!
