make it yours: erin austen abbott and sean kirkpatrick


Erin Austen Abbott and her husband, Sean Kirkpatrick of the band Colour Revolt, live in this Water Valley, Mississippi, home. Built in 1890, the house is over 120 years old, and Sean and Erin are only its fourth owners! Erin has a “flea-market vintage meets grandma chic” decorating style, which gives the home so much character! I adore all the vintage collections, and I especially love the warm color palettes: mint green in the kitchen with orangey red and green accents, and blue in the living room with an eclectic mix of artwork on the wall. What a beautiful home with great personality! Click here to view the rest of the original Sneak Peek. — Lauren

Erin, your mom is very proud of you. The world needs more of your design ideas.

I think I missed the original sneak peak (shocked!) I love their home, particularly the kitchen, I love the idea of mismatched cupboards and shelves instead of just ordinary kitchen stuff, makes it feel more homely x

Bridget from Refined Vintage

The color palette in this home is so comforting and does feel a bit like grandmas’ but in a very good way! I love to see a real home that uses vintage in everyday life. So much better than collecting but not using.

I love your kitchen! Where did you get the shelf that holds your pots and pans?

erin abbott

@heidi j. That shelf was a wedding present from Crate and Barrel. It was the prefect shelf for that space, I believe. Thank you.
