If you’ve read Home Bunch for some time you might recognize Hollie from @artfulhomestead. I first featured Hollie’s main home on “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” in 2016 and she has been featured many other times on Home Bunch after that, but today she comes back not to feature her main home, but instead her dreamy vacation home. Here she talks more about this exciting time of her life:
“I have always wanted to be a homemaker, I know that sounds outdated but I was born in the 50’s. My love for decor didn’t blossom though until Mr. G and I bought our 4th home in 1982. I remember the day clearly as if it was yesterday when my mother in law said to me “ Hollie you need to save some of your household money and buy a knock knack once in a while”. So my quest to make our homes lovely began on that day. This is our 16th home that we like to refer to as “ our sunny home”.
My style has evolved over the years and I am now in a phase of simplicity. My color palette is shades of white and blue. Linen of different hues is my choice when it comes to upholstery. I mix vintage finds, which are mostly passed down from generations gone by. I love setting a pretty table even if it’s an ordinary day. The knick knacks I now use are mostly useful items as well as pretty to look at. I love placing a stack of plates on top of a cake stand, beautiful handmade pottery is also all about my home. I believe everything I decorate with needs to earn its keep and must be useful or have a story to tell. Everyone can have a beautiful home and the key ingredient is heart not money, because we all have a story to tell and that is what makes a house a home.”
