Hop over to DCV this weekend

Happy first days of spring….I think. We know, somehow the seasons seem confused and this snow we waited all winter for finally decided to arrive…at the end of March. But we’re moving on in hopes of sunshine and warm weather. It has to arrive soon, right? We’re celebrating spring this weekend with our March Madness Spring Open House.

Yes, it’s time to hop into spring! Let’s find those garden items, those bright colors, and those quirky little accent pieces that help to pull you out of the winter slump. Are you ready for Easter?

We all have those people who are just so hard to buy for. They seem to have everything! When you shop at a place like Deep Creek Vintage, it’s easy to walk into a room and exclaim, “Wow, I’ve never seen one of those before!” It stands to reason that if you’ve never seen one, they probably don’t have one. Shopping, done! We offer personalized and handmade gifts, too! What better way to show you wanted their gift to be truly unique?!

Outdoor Trends Made Easy

Looking to spruce up your outside space? It’s a great time to do it! With the warm weather, we’re sure you’re spending  a lot of time outdoors, whether it’s watching the kids splash in the pool (or shoot each other with water guns) or seeing what blooming in your garden. Maybe you’re just spending the summer nights on the porch, enjoying the nice warm breeze. No matter what is drawing you outdoors, make sure the space you find yourself in is inviting. It’s easier than you think, and we’re here to help.

The front porch has taken over this year as the space people are spending more of their time. It’s becoming more of a social center, as people in the neighborhoods can frequently be found lounging with a glass of iced tea, maybe a good book, or the company of a neighbor. Rocking chairs are a staple, and what better than a vintage rocker? Sit down for a spell in a chair with charm and just enjoy the peace and the slower pace.

Gallery walls are also popular for outdoor decor, so you can take your favorite decorating trends and carry the theme from inside out. Is farmhouse your thing? Or are you feeling the nautical vibe? Whatever your preference, decorate the outdoor walls to help bring cohesion and a bit of fun.

If you’re going to be spending so much time outside, then it’s natural you’ll want to sit and enjoy a meal. More and more people are bringing much of their daily life outside on nice days, including mealtime. What better than to sit outside in the sunshine, catch up on your day, and enjoy a burger off the grill, or even just relax and have a cup of tea?

Metal continues to be a hot trend in outdoor decor. It’s a great way to combine the natural with the industrial, or to add touches of whimsy to your garden. From elegant baskets to adorable birds, metal elements can help you add that missing touch.

No matter how you plan on sprucing up your outdoor space, we’re here to help. We’re open five days a week (closed Tuesday – Wednesday) and we’d love to help you make your ideas a reality. Come see us soon at the manor house!

 

Trends for 2017

The new year is well underway, and with it, there will always be new trends in home decor. So what is 2017 already showing to be hot? And how can you easily bring this year’s best trends into your home? Let’s take a look!

As for color, green is expected to be popular again. That’s wonderful to hear, because it’s one of our favorites here! If you’re looking to take on a painting project, all of our paint lines carry great shades of green, from rich kelly greens to bright farmhouse hues. And if you’re looking for some vintage accents, we have wonderful pops of color for you, as well! Green has always been popular for those who love the rustic look, but it’s also great for glassware. No matter how you choose to incorporate it, we can help!

As for metals, copper is back! We know that it’s easy to add a touch of elegance with copper, and homeowners are realizing they love the look, too! From copper molds to fabulous pieces to decorate the mantle, you can’t go wrong with this fabulous metal.

Farmhouse still tops the lists of styles people are gravitating to, and it’s no wonder with a style that’s not only comfortable to live with, but easy to personalize. It’s a great way to add in solid pieces made to stand the test of time, but also incorporate a little whimsy into your decor.

What trends have you noticed? What is your favorite? We’d love to help you give your decor a little boost! Come in today and see what’s “new” in the shop. We’re open six days a week, and it’s a beautiful time to take a drive. See you soon at the manor!

 

Spring is coming….

It may be hard to believe since it was only 20 degrees this morning, but spring will be here before we know it! We’ve had a few beautiful days (and it’s supposed to be gorgeous again this weekend). It’s making us restless for this cold weather to take it’s leave and for spring to arrive in all our homes. What does spring mean for you?

We know some have already started their spring cleaning. It’s a great time to get rid of those things that no longer bring you joy and figure out how you can add a pop of color here, or a touch of whimsy there to give a room just the right touch. What room in your house is in need of sweeping out more than just the cobwebs?

Winter is wonderful with its creamy whites and ivories, but it’s always nice to see the color return. It doesn’t have to stop with the the flowers in your garden though. Bring them inside (or find high quality arrangements) that help to continue to the trend throughout.

Not a floral fan?  Spring means new life, and nothing livens up a room like bright colors. Afraid to be too drastic? Even just a little piece here and there can make a big difference.

What’s your favorite way to invite spring into your home? We’d love to hear about some of your decorating ideas! And for ways to try these tricks in your own home, come visit us at Deep Creek Vintage. We’re only closed on Wednesday, and we’d love to see you!

Out With the Old, In With the…Vintage

In two days time, we will be bidding adieu to 2016 to welcome in 2017. The Christmas decorations will begin to come down (if they haven’t already), and you’ll begin to put your house back together again from the chaos that always seems to follow December 25th (at least in my house). And if you’re anything like me, after all the decorations are down, you’ll decide that while the house looked perfectly fine before Thanksgiving, it’s now missing something. It needs a little added touch. And the new year is the perfect time to do it!

While you’re putting away your holiday decor, see if you have a room or two that’s just not where you want it to be, and make it your New Year’s Resolution to create a home you can fall in love with all over again. Then come here to Deep Creek Vintage to search for those special touches. You want things that are unique, and intriguing. Things with history, and character. We specialize in those one-of-a-kind pieces that will set your room apart. Whether you are searching for an anchor piece to build the room around, or accent pieces to pull it all together, we can help you start your new year off with a bang! So round up those things that aren’t exactly your cup of tea, and come here to find the things that speak to you. We’re closed for New Year’s Day, but we’d love to help you on January 2nd! See you soon at the Manor House!

Here we come a-caroling

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Here at Deep Creek Vintage;
Take a look all around the shop, decorated from bottom to top
With candy canes and embellished silverplate aglow.

silverplate

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Right within our store,
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On our own front porch.

A pair of decorated skates and an old iron gate
Is the wish of Barbara and Ben;
An old vintage sled and a Frenchy twin bed
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;

skates
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev’rywhere you go;
There’s a tree on the farm table, one in the front room as well,
And vintage ornaments to hang on every bough.

orns
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.
