Who doesn’t dream of taking an old rustic barn and turning it into an awesome home for you and your family? Well, Dianne and her husband, Bill, did exactly that! After raising three sons within its walls, empty nesters Dianne and Bill started redecorating their home with furniture and decor from Mimi’s Attic- bringing out their unique personalities and quirk!
The inside of Dianne and Bill’s house is the epitome of cozy, but the outside is grand and rustic. Small, thoughtful details grab your attention as you approach the front door: the garden gnomes peeking out at you, the wild flowers purposely left to grow between the slate pavers, the fierce lion-face knocker. Everything is perfectly picturesque in a haphazard and relaxed way.
One of the most dominating pieces in the open concept living space is a large round oak table from Mimi’s. Bill and Dianne didn’t just want a table, they wanted a table that would inspire their guests to sit around for hours after dinner, sipping wine and talking late into the night. They also wanted a table large and sturdy enough to host their sons (and their son’s friends) who frequently came back to visit. And at Mimi’s, they were able to find the perfect table at an affordable price!
Unexpected details and clever storage and decor solutions add intrigue and usefulness to every corner. Whether it’s the glasses stored on the ceiling (yes, you read that right) or pictures above the stove, they lend a quirky charm. Many of these pieces are vintage and were one of a kind finds at Mimi’s.
Dianne and Bill have created a unique and personalized home by shopping at Mimi’s. We hope it inspires YOU to stop by and see what perfect addition we have for your nest!
