Hi, I'm Angela from Number Fifty-Three and I love the collected look of a house filled with thrifted items.  My decorating style is an ever evolving eclectic mix of vintage, modern country and boho.  I'm forever tweaking and updating my home and I invite you to come along on this journey with me!

I'm a mom to two super smart boys who after years of being homeschooled have just started back in our public school system. Seriously, with all going on and all of the ideas swirling around in my head my home is not always perfect and is most definitely in transition, but that's what makes decorating so much fun!

 One thing you should know about me is that I'm passionate about decorating on a budget. I know it's tough to have a high end wish list that's out of reach, but I can show you how to transform dated thrift store purchases, style rooms and create simple crafts that will be spectacular in your home.
I paint things...a lot! It's my absolute favorite way to update my thrifty finds. I just love how a little bit of paint can transform someone's old cast-offs into beautiful treasures.  I love it so much, that my boyfriend, Darrell and I also paint and sell vintage and antique furniture to customers throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York state.  

You can also see me regularly contributing at Jennifer Rizzo Design Company.

and at DecorArt!
