Even as busy as we’ve been, I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about this yet. On the footsteps of our national magazine debut in Bedrooms and Baths, we were honored to be featured again in another Romatic Homes publication, Flea Market Decor.
You may know that we have collaborated with the magnificent Tricia Whitmer of Tricialee Photography on shooting some of our portfolio. Hopefully you’ve seen some of the Instagrams we’ve posted of our escapades together. (follow us: instagram.com/scoutdeb) Well, Tricia recently moved into a 100 year old farmhouse south of Atlanta and we were honored when she asked us to help her create her vision for it.
No project has brought truer meaning to the quote, “Design should tell a story.” Tricia had one requirement: she wanted to use only vintage or repurposed items in the decor. She wanted each and every piece we selected to have a history; after all the farm house had one. Now you all know The Scouts LOVE some flea market-ing and incorporating vintage items into our designs. But this was a challenge, as we tend to create a mix of things old and new, modern and vintage. ALL vintage? Yep.We had so much fun on this project! It’s always invigorating to be challenged (in a good way) as a designer and collaborate with another creative. From searching for the right baby doll to learning how to change a drill bit, working on this farm house was a labor of love. Here are a few shots of Tricia’s home.

I love the colors of these vintage Coke crates we hung on the wall. We filled the niches with all sorts of old treasures.
Tricia sourced this truck, and it is one of my favorite things in the house. The old toy takes on a new life in a sculptural way.We filled glass front cabinets with mix and match red transferware, a collection that can continue to grow. The centerpiece vases were created by tucking milk glass bud vases inside old truck springs. Love it!
