Feature Friday: Modern Jane

I'm so excited about our feature this week. Jane is the writer of the blog Modern Jane and she has such a great eye for design.  Here is how she describes her style.

I tend to start with a fairly traditional, neutral backdrop with paint colors and furniture, then I inject color and texture with soft tones and geometric prints. I live in an area void of box stores (most of my favorite stores don't even want to ship to me!), so I love to shop local thrift and antique stores for vintage furniture and interesting objects that I can transform into something new. I'm lucky to have people in my life who will help me build things and have taught me not to fear a power tool!

Enjoy her house tour! 

Love the subtle wallpaper. 

She reupholstered that chair in an indoor/outdoor fabric. Genius if you have kids or pets! 

Check out more info one her living room here

Pretty glass knobs.

I love the pretty little West Elm pendant

She made that bench seat herself.
