Favorite places in my home

I love interior design as much as I do fashion. Designing a room is much like putting together an outfit; you have to think about colors, textures and the mood you’re going for. I definitely lean more towards the mid century modern look, but I also look to the opinions of my sister and mom for design help and inspiration.

Here are the top three spaces in my home I get the most questions about and where to buy the items:

Living room: I love the way this room came together. The fireplace is in an awkward place and the room is really long, so initially I had a hard time designing this space. The art above the fireplace is something I created on a whim when we first moved in. It’s really grown on me! For a long time I really wanted to mount a mantle on the fireplace, but it might make the space too crowded. I like the retro feel of it for now.

 

Kitchen: We’re in this space the most: breakfast, lunch and even dinners. We hardly use our dining room anymore, but I think once the kids are a little older we’ll start using it again. I absolutely love this table not only for it’s fun design, but that it’s really kid friendly. There have been so many things spilled on this and accidental marker ink and it always comes out. The art piece is by Grey Malin, but I linked a similar and less expensive version below.

 

 

Bedroom: This room has changed the most since we moved in. I had a hard time finding a comforter that wasn’t too feminine and not too manly. I settled for a unique stripe in a pretty grey knowing that I could have fun pillows. There’s still a lot I want to do to this space: update the fan, add an area rug that’s the right size, new closet doors…etc. I am also looking for the perfect bench to add at the foot of the bed. Any suggestions are welcome!

 

 

Current favorites

I love to indulge in a few items that make me feel good. And that isn’t always a great pair of shoes or a yummy treat from a local bakery. Instead, I love a few things for my home and skin that smell good and act as a ritual before bedtime. This oil is my all time favorite. The scent is subtle, but yummy enough to use before bed. I love to spray it on my hands and work it into my cuticles and it leaves a satiny sheen on the skin. It’s equally as good in your hair especially if it tends to be dry. I also use this lotion on my hands, arms, elbows, knees and feet before bed. It smells really fresh and is super thick and moisturizing without being too oily. When I’m finally ready for bed, I always wear this eye mask. It’s so comfortable and doesn’t let any light in. And I recently added this diffuser to my home (my first one!) and it adds the perfect blend of husk and sandalwood to the house.
