{ House Crash - Vintage + Industrial }

Hey Guys! I am excited to share today's house crash with you. This house is truly original, inspiring and pretty cool to look through. It's totally different than my style but there are so many things that I love about this home that I find myself perusing her house pics over and over!

Welcome to Mandi's house that she shares with her hubby and two daughters. Check out this entry way and that purple chandi with the herringbone painted ceiling...

Crazy fun, right!? So many different styles going on in that small space but it all works together and that is exactly how the rest of her house feels (through the computer screen anyway ;)).

and the living room...

I love the shelves on the wall, all the art work and that pattern of triangles is NOT wallpaper, it was made with a sharpie! Yep.

Check out this little girls AMAZING room

I have kid room jealousy when I look at this room. That tufted headboard, those adorable pillows, that lamp, the wall,! Maybe you are looking at it and thinking, whoah, too much, but this screams I'M AN AWESOME KID to me! I completely love it and I can imagine her daughter really loves it too. The other side of the room is just as fun...

that is one lucky girl and one super crafty, awesome momma! That's what I love the most about reading Mandi's blog, she DIY's almost everything and a lot of the items she has in her home are from thrift stores. She has a lot of great tutorials and projects that you can look through too. Click here and it will take you right to her projects page! Just to warn you, you may need a couple of hours of uninterrupted computer time because once you start looking you cant look away!

Here is a view from the kitchen into the dining room. This photo was taken during their kitchen renovation that wasn't completed yet at the time. I love the bold risk of painting black on the dining room walls. I also really like the herringbone pattern in the flooring!

So, what do you guys think?! This girl has some spunk in her style, no?! Did you find yourself inspired?  If you want to see more, you can head over to Mandi's blog and see more of her home and other homes that she has decorated too!

The great thing about reading all these different blogs like I do is there are so many different styles out there, so many different tastes and preferences and ways to do things. It's a great way to find ideas for your home or even just to change up your thinking a little bit sometimes! We get so used to seeing our friend's homes and family's homes and tend to lean toward what we feel is safe but sometimes its just seeing what other people do and how they decorate that gives you that motivation to be bold and do things the way you really love, to think outside of the box, and see things you never thought possible before.

 I am still slowly trying to figure out what it is exactly that I love in terms of styling my own home. Sometimes, I figure it out after I purchase something and put it in the room and go "nope that didn't work out like I thought it would" but sometimes it's the unexpected that really pops in a room and screams "YES! That is what I was going for!"

Now I feel like I need to go hit up the thrift stores to see what kind of treasures I can re-purpose for my home! Thanks for the inspiration ALL the time Mandi!

I hope you guys like these little house tours that I try to do occasionally. I have SO many more houses to show you, some of them are people in my own backyard (not literally, you know, just those folks that are here from the Mitten like me) that I am excited to show you! Like I said before, if you or someone you know has a home that NEEDS to be shown off to us nosey house loving and inspiration craving peeps then be sure to contact me to get on the list!

I am doing a giveaway in the near future so stay tuned for that...coming very soon!

Hope you're having yourself a very happy Hump Day!


  1. Like you mentioned not my style either, but then I really don't have a style, its more like hodge podge.. but I love seeing how other people decorate..

  2. Love love the kids bedroom with honeycomb wall and the herringbone pattern in the kitchen floor! So creative!
