sneak peek: amanda orcutt of amandromeda

by Grace Bonney

today’s first sneak peek belongs to amanda orcutt of siloam springs, arkansas. amanda runs a beautiful online shop, amandromeda, that specializes in vintage furniture and home accessories, and recently- with the help of her husband and a contractor- renovated the top floor of a 100 year old building in historic downtown siloam springs. i was instantly taken with amanda’s home (especially the hammock in the living space), each space has a wonderful mix of new and old objects and an open, lofty feel that would make any tiny apartment dweller envious. thanks to mark jackson of mark jackson studio for lending us these images of amanda’s home- i hope you’ll enjoy amanda’s home as much as i did.

We live above a flower shop in historic downtown Siloam Springs, AR. This building is over 100 years old and previously there was nothing up here. My husband Matt grew up in Bolivia and the hammock in the lounge area (top image) is from there.

I bought my entire kitchen on eBay the only exception is the fridge and it’s a hand-me-down from my parents that we covered in chalkboard paint and my son, Isaiah, loves to draw on it (see additional image after the jump)! My dad built my dining table.

The claw foot tub in the master bath was found in another building down the street and I got it for free. All I had to do was get it re-glazed and buy new plumbing hardware.

The chandeliers in the master bedroom and bath were my grandmother’s.

The words painted on the wall above the bed in the master are lyrics to the song my husband Matt wrote me and sang in our wedding.
