When one approaches the Rapid City home of Amanda and Tanner Sogge, it’s apparent that a Volkswagen enthusiast lives there.

An older model Beetle sits in the driveway, a converted bus/pickup is parked at the curb, and in the garage, is Tanner’s current project – a 1962 VW bus with a safari windshield, faded paint and a whole lot of new under the hood.

This blend of old and new translates to the home’s interior as well.

“My husband and I are both old souls,” said Amanda. “He’s brought in the antique, vintage side of our house and I’ve grown to kind of love it. I like newer stuff, but because we can never afford all-new-modern, we’ve made our style be where you can kind of mix together old and new. I think a lot of people are doing that now.”

That blend of eras and styles has led to a hip, vibrant aesthetic.

“I love mix-match stuff,” said Amanda. “I really just put whatever I like in my house. And then all of it just starts to blend and work. I’ve been told our style is eclectic.”

Recurring floral patterns throughout the Sogges’ décor create a sense of serendipitous unity. An affinity for the natural world appears everywhere throughout the first floor, from the vintage rose painting in the kitchen to the vine detailing on a metal mirror frame to the brightly-colored throw pillows.

Amanda says the pillows are one of her favorite details in the living room. “These two here – the colorful ones – are from Uganda, so they are really special. They were hand stitched and we just brought back the cases.”
