Today I’m here with you as part of a new feature called:
8. That gorgeous electric blue sofa has been a big hit! How would you describe your home style?
Thank you! Would you believe I got that sofa for $200 on Craigslist!? It is probably my favorite thing in our home! Hmm, I would describe my style as a mix of minimalist, eclectic, and a bit traditional. I love the clean lines of mid century furniture, lots of shades of blue, uncluttered rooms, some coastal elements, and bold geometric prints paired with florals. See, I’m all over the board, I guess!
I think area rugs are almost always worth spending more on. They are something you usually have for years and a quality rug goes a long way in elevating a space. A few vintage pieces in a home add a lot of depth and character. Although I love to scour Craigslist, flea markets, and thrift stores for these, I will pay a little more for just the right piece. For a combination splurge/save, I prefer spending more on great fabric and then sewing my own curtains. With decor items that get switched out seasonally (or with my mood) I stick to inexpensive items from Target, Home Goods, and second hand finds. The exception to this is throw pillows–I find it is makes a big difference to use high quality fabrics and down inserts. Again though, this doesn’t always have to mean shelling out big bucks. I recently found some beautiful linen pillow covers from H&M for like $12. A splurge I’ve been contemplating forever is wall paper. There are so many gorgeous prints and I have a feeling this project will be coming in the near future.
10. What is your secret to success in managing a blog, business, and home renovation?
I can’t wait to see how this Kitchen Renovation turns out! So far I’m loving the two toned cabinets!
