i love that spruce austin was created by amanda brown and lizzie joyce to bring an updated approach to upholstery. i know for sure that both grace and i have a thing for chairs, and it’s always fun to see what they’ve cooked up (more on etsy). today amanda opens up her home that showcases her love of art and vintage decor. if what you see below isn’t enough, click here for more, full-sized images. [thanks, amanda!!]anne

[Above: Bedroom. For Christmas, I made my husband this headboard covered in vintage curtains.]

A collection of my favorite things fills every room of my 50s bungalow home. Our entryway greets guests with a large abstract painting created by my husband’s ninety-year-old grandmother. The table is a find from Corner Collector’s Market in Austin.

We drink from an antique dresser passed down from my husband’s grandfather. This vintage Frederick Cooper lamp is my absolute favorite with the porcelain basket weave and golden tassel. The wet bar is framed by two vintage high backs we reupholstered in a green mosaic fabric (lamp & chairs from Corner Collector’s Market).

Our kitchen, suited with an authentic Chambers stove, is the center of gossip and conversation during weekly game night.

LOVE these bird chairs revamped by the Sprucettes. . . Cocktails are so much more fun with the right accessories…vintage decanters labeled with quirky gift tags.

This chair is my favorite place to catch up on Domino & design blogs, and the painting is another find from the Citywide Garage Sale.
