HOME JOURNAL + TIPS FOR STYLING

Wednesday, February 22, 2017


As a stylist, I'm often re-arranging books & trinkets on my coffee table, and moving bits & bobs from one area to another. Since I work from home, I'm constantly looking for inspiration all around and it all starts with my home decor and the things that I wear.





MARRYING STYLES

Over the past month, I've been adding a few little additions to freshen up our space. Much of my design aesthetic incorporates a mix of pretty textures, romantic patterns, and sophisticated colors.  I enjoy experimenting with different styles and don't mind sneaking in a little modern glam, as I did with a couple of rose gold wired baskets that I purchased at Nordstrom Rack.

Basket Options:  Nordstrom Rack Rose Gold Baskets (In store only) // H&M Metal Wire Baskets // CB2 Wire Baskets




GO LUXE IN SMALL DOSES

I've always loved marble surfaces, especially in coffee tables, but they can be pretty pricey. If you're working with a budget, try finding marble surfaces in smaller doses, such as a tray, cutting board, coasters, or an accent table. Adding small elements of marble and dressing them up with pretty trinkets & candles will give you that luxe look until you're ready to splurge on an expensive furniture piece. This can also go for wood or other unique surfaces you prefer. 







USE YOUR WARDROBE & BEAUTY ITEMS AS DECOR

This tip works amazingly for your bedroom and office space. Take a simple IKEA clothing rack and display your favorite wardrobe pieces. You can create a color and texture scheme of white and lace, as I did or create your own that is unique to your style. To dress things up even further, hang all your lovelies on wooden or metallic gold hangers. Display pretty bottled skincare products, makeup, and perfumes in a cute arrangement for side tables. It's girly & feminine, turning your space into a place that keeps you ever so inspired by beauty & fashion!




USE FLOWERS & GREENERY AS WALL ART

There's nothing more lovely than a bouquet of blooms to liven things up in a room. When used as wall art, you can create a beautiful embellishment for a once bare space.  Use a bundle of eucalyptus leaves or your favorite flowers. String roses into a garland to drape over your bed or window. Feeling like you just woke up in a dreamy garden is all a girl can really ask for!

Try taking a peek into Marshall's and Home Good's too, where I was able to find really lovely low-priced home decor. Anthropologie is my ultimate place for beautifully patterned goods, so be sure to do a little shopping there as well.

With Spring around the corner, have you made any home updates lately? Thanks so much for hanging out with me a while and chat with you again soon!

Warmly ~
