Alicia is a decorator, mother, and nurse who has a passion for modern farmhouse design.
Her work is inspired by the beautiful contrast between old and new. When she purchased her home in
Rochester, WA, she began documenting the decorating experience on her Instagram.
"I currently call my style Modern Farmhouse.
I absolutely LOVE vintage finds and antiquing, and I have several antique pieces in my home.
I live about 10 miles away from the town of Centralia, which has an excellent antique district in its historic
downtown, and I shop there often. I enjoy new pieces as well, and prefer that chairs and sofas are little more modern/traditional. IKEA is my favorite store to find new pieces.
Now, I believe the blending of old and new makes for a beautiful home and allows those vintage pieces to
really shine. If you feel your home with only old, it can start to feel and look like a museum! And a home with only
new pieces to me, can feel a little cold because it lacks that cozy factor that only vintage pieces can add."
"I started my Instagram account, Fresh Farmhouse Feels, a little over a year ago as a creative outlet and to inspire and receive inspiration from others. I absolutely LOVE being a part of the IG home decor community. I have learned so much and of course, my style has evolved with the daily inspiration that I find on this platform. I would be lying if I said I never felt a little discouraged when scrolling through all the eye candy. I have to remind myself though, that my goal as a decorator is really to inspire others in whatever “home phase” they are in in their lives".
"Whether it be a simple apartment, a run down ranch home, or just that ordinary cookie cutter home in an ordinary neighborhood, you can choose to make your home beautiful."
