October 25, 2009 Etsy issue
This weekend’s Get the Look: Decor is inspired by the warm and inviting home of Tamar and Ronen. Four years ago, the couple, their three teenage sons and dog moved away from a life in the city and into a beautiful home in Shelburne, Vermont. Tamar’s decorating style incorporates her family’s artwork, bright patterned textiles, thoughtfully displayed family mementos, along with collections of vintage treasures and repurposed thrifted furniture. The many different textures and patterns throughout the home create a stimulating yet homey feel.
Tamar told me, "Our home is very laid back. The walls are white washed to highlight our ever growing art collection (many pieces from Etsy) but most of the pieces are from my family; my mother and sister are both painters. We use lots of textiles and our style is very eclectic, from modern country to funky and colorful. Nothing really matches, but that’s how we love it."
Tamar works as an interior designer and runs NestDecorating, an inspiring blog focused on home decor, style and family life. She also has a successful Etsy shop, tamar, where she sells beautiful jewelry, accessories and home decor.
