Where is your home located, and how long have you lived there? I live in Campbell, California, which is in the San Francisco Bay Area, I've lived here almost 6 years.

What is your favorite decorating style? My favorite style is an eclectic mix of Romantic, French Country, Cottage and Shabby Chic.

Where do you get your decorating influence from the most? Decorating magazines, other blogs and The Old Painted Cottage~Cottage of the Month.
In 5 words or less, your home is: My creative outlet!

What is your favorite store or flea market to shop at? The Alameda Point Antique & Collectibles Faire. It's right on the San Francisco Bay so you get the crisp ocean breeze as you shop.

Share one of your favorite decorating tricks or ideas: I like to put collections together in one area. My chintz is all in one cabinet. My white cherub collection is in another cabinet. My vintage linen and lace collection is stacked together and on display. It has more of an impact than scattering them throughout my home.
Your favorite paint color: I love the deep blue in my bathroom, it's Behr Paint, the color is Bleached Denim. It's the perfect backdrop for lots of white.

What are your favorite things to collect right now? Vintage linen and lace tablecloths & small white ceramic cherubs.

What is your favorite room in your house, and why? My dining room is my favorite room right now because I love how I can change the look by just rearranging the items in the hutch. It's also nice to sit down with family and friends and enjoy a good meal there!
Your next project is: I want to paint my bedroom and give it a more serene, romantic look with lots of creams and whites.

Where do you sell your goods? I just started selling vintage items on etsy:
