Brandi has an eye for design and hones her skills working as a creative assistant for Wisteria. She is also an artist — the living room's far wall is the perfect place to showcase her work with other favorite pieces.
Comfort and functionality are Brandi's priorities. "It doesn't matter how beautiful something is; if my dogs can't take a lazy nap on it or I have to use a coaster to set my glass down, I won't be happy," she says.

Brandi doesn't mind waiting for the right piece of furniture to present itself, such as the vintage burled wood coffee table she found on Craigslist.
"Like many other pieces in our home, I wanted our coffee table to be special," Brandi says. "I knew finding it would take time." Because many vintage coffee tables are so short, Scott built a riser to lift it up; they then covered it in gold paper.
Brandi's aesthetic is heavily influenced by designer Angie Hranowsky. "I love everything Angie does," she says. "I also really love Meredith Heron. And I find the best DIY projects at Little Green Notebook; Jenny's blog posts are so thorough with great photos. They're projects that people can actually do."

The vaulted ceilings and beams were two of the features that drew the couple to this home. "I love the feeling of open space in this home," Brandi says. "I also fell in love with with the dining room windows."
Brandi made the colorful accent pillows from vintage scarves.
Brandi's dining set is a mishmash of collected pieces. She bought the dining table on clearance from Pier One Imports, but the chairs were another Craigslist find. Brandi painted them white and hired Steven's Upholstery to recover the seats in a black and white striped fabric from High Fashion Home.

A careful mix of pattern sits against a backdrop of cool gray walls. Brandi covered the headboard with a Bengali Kantha cloth that's similar in weight and texture to the one draped at the end of the bed. The dhurrie rug is a discontinued style that Brandi bought at Wisteria Flea.

Instead of installing a full-length mirror in her dressing area, Brandi found a rustic door from salvage and propped it up in the corner of her room.
This rustic white cabinet in the master bathroom is another Canton find. Brandi lined the back of the hutch with rice paper from Paper Source, and the shelving provides the perfect place for extra linens and jewelry.
