Hey there, Mea here!
Using my Home as a Testing Ground
So I must admit, that I am suuupppeer ecstatic about my first home makeover project for Cranberry Vintage. Since this my first time taking on this endevor, I have decided to use my own home as a testing ground for my design ideas and DIY projects. When I originally chose this house, what I loved about it was its comfortable and serene feel. To me, the house came off very vintage with its ranch style design, its yellow siding walls, and some crown molding in the dinning room. You can tell that the previous owners took care of the home and invested what they could to make it look nice. I loved the home for the current ascetics, however, I knew that I was going to change it overtime to reflect my taste in design.

My Design Path
As I am planning out the areas that I would like to tackle first, I was looking for a design style that encompasses all my likes and desires. I live for color, culture, and creativity and I love vintage and eclectic designs. In other words, the aim for this home is a vintage eclectic style with a cultural twist…. a Bohemian Design Style.
I chose the Bohemian Design Style, because it is a combination of different philosophies mixed with how you feel. With boho design, you can combine vintage, with new school thinking, with plants, with color, culture, and whatever you desire to do. Overall, the boho design is about self love and self expression. Something I wish to implement throughout my home.
The first area that I plan on tackling is the curb appeal of my home. Curb appeal is the process of making the front of your home attractive and pleasing to the eye. It gives your home a fresh new look and it can play apart in increasing the property value of your home. This is something that you can apply when you either plan on selling your home or even keeping it and enhancing its current beauty.
