Surrounded In Style
Whether you are moving to a new place or looking to add some style to your current nest, it's always great to get inspired by others. It's easier than you think to come up with some really clever ways to decorate. From classic books flying wildly on a wall to a T-Rex's head watching ominously (but in a fun way) over your flossing routine, you can easily transform a room into a truly unique space that captures your own personal vision.
Today's post gives you a peek into the home of our guest blogger and stylist Jen. You've read her tips on fashion choices, but here's a chance to see how a stylist decorates her own home. It's a little bit sweet, a little bit Smurfy, with a hint of pinup vintage and a side of cozy comfort.
At just under 1,000 square feet, Jen's little cottage is chocked full of fun style. It's not hard to see why she became a stylist; she’s great at seeing the potential in people, clothes and old furniture –- even using fashion to decorate (check out her hat collection as wall art). So, without further ado, here are some of her interesting and clever home decorating ideas and her beautiful mini Sex-In-the-City style closet.
We asked Jen how she defined her style. She said: “I like what I like. I like old and new, and making something old new again. A couple cans of spray paint go a long way, especially when it's red paint. I like textures and cute things, bright colors and fun patterns. Mostly, I think your home should make you feel as beautiful as your clothes do, and it should be styled to suit your lifestyle. I feel like my home is my very own modern vintage cottage. It evolves. I change things and move things around. At the end of the day, I love it here and the way I’ve decorated each room inspires me a little every day.”
We hope you enjoyed the tiny tour and you find great ways to make your every day stylish.
