Happy Thursday! It’s time for another edition of It’s Eclectic! I have an amazingly talented and creative lady to share with you today, the fabulous Sarah. M. Dorsey. I am sure you have seen her work featured at Centsational Girl because she is just that good! Not only is she super talented, but she is an absolute sweetheart. She hails from my area of the country, so I just know we will meet in person soon! Here she is today, sharing her gorgeous home that she is just moving from….
Hi Primitive and Proper friends, I’m Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs.
It’s such an honor to be here today! I adore Cassie, her home and her blog!! My family is practically neighbors to her, so when I’m in town next I hope we’ll be thrifting together soon (she has amazing taste and finds the best things)!!
My husband, puppy and I moved to Central Coast, CA two years ago and have been adding personalized touches to our rental ever since! We’ve done it by tackling one budget friendly DIY project at a time. I believe that with a little creativity, time and effort, you don’t need a lot of money to make your home look fabulous! Also, go with your gut and don’t be afraid to break some rules – most of the time you’re right!
This past week, we moved to Lake Erie in Ohio for my husband’s job, so while we’re in transition – it’s fun to look back on our home in CA 🙂
Walking into our unit we have a pretty tight entryway. To maximize storage and space, we created a demilune table from a round table, perfect for holding keys and mail. The small size and round edges are perfect for our entryway because it doesn’t take up a lot of space!
Our folded rope dome light has been one of my favorite projects to date!
The bright coral upholstered headboard adds a pop of color and the custom curved arms repeat the edge of the nailhead design.
We built two nightstands with bamboo legs and a Skubb drawer from Ikea. We also painted dated brass lamps with white spray paint and made a removable white shade cover.
Moving up to the third floor, we have two more landings. Did I mention that it is really hard to move furniture up here? 🙂
The first has a tall ombre gallery wall
and the second has a custom stenciled wall with frame shelves.
The third level has one long room that we use as an office and living room. Our DIY Schumacher Zimba inspired draperies on both sides help pull the space together and give it a pop of pattern and contrast.
We “finished” (I’m never really done) our rental shortly before we moved and it was so nice to see it pulled together after working on it for about 2 years. Now that we’re in Ohio, I’m excited for what’s next!
It was a blast sharing our CA home with you today! Feel free to stop by and hi, I’d love to meet you!!
Thanks so much for having me today Cassie!!
