Curating a home decor style that feels collected takes time and intention.  Amanda of Sincerely Marie Designs has done a beautiful job achieving this look and feel in her home, and she is joining me to talk about one of my favorite topics: decorating your home with vintage and antique pieces.  Many of our current home inspiration sources — HGTV, Pinterest, Instagram — can give us the unrealistic expectation that our home decor should be perfectly put together all at once.  Amanda and I discuss how there is actually so much beauty in slowly piecing together your decor over time.  We are sharing some practical tips for how you can source and incorporate antique, handmade, and repurposed pieces into your own home.
