My Military Base Housing

My home is simple and unpretencious, it's filled with objects that we love to watch and use, many of them found and rescued.
I only splunge on furniture because it needs to be sturdy, we've  moved so much and so very often to different climates that makes veneers are not an option
I only buy things that I love and thing s that I can use them in multiple tasks. We  try to be organic  so there is no plastics or sintetics fibers around... cotton, linen, wool  are also affordable.

Finding objects it's gratifiying and they make exeptional conversation pieces.

Nothing that a white and soft palete can't help,  the military policy on housing is when you move out it needs to be as steryl as you found it, meaning  white walls, vynil floors, hideous bathroom can't be modified, don't forget  blids stay put, so I have always to work around what I already have  . My home is definetely an example of the resourcesfulness of any army wife in one income household.

    My son is in the military and has a base house and everything is very white. I love it and could do so much with it but he really isn't into the whole "shabby chic" thing :))

  5. I looove your comfy living room and I'm in awe of how young you are and that you've already found your decorating 'WAY', (it took me years), but the most wonderful thing is, that you know YOUR STYLE will go with you, where ever it is, that you call home!!! Bless you and your awesome hubby for all that he does for all of US! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs
