Earlier this week, we established that I have an addiction to redecorating. But no matter how many times I redo a space, one thing always remains the same: I love bright and happy colors and I love images of the beach.
I’m so excited to be featured on Gray Malin’s blog today. The home tour and interview includes these photos and many more from around my house. Gray, as you can probably tell, is my favorite photographer (Bright colors? Check. Images of the beach? Check.) and I have his work featured all over my home.
I get asked about my decorating style quite often, so in conjunction with this feature, I thought I’d answer a few of the most frequently asked questions today.
While I was pulling photos for this , I realized that I’ve never shared one picture of my dining room, so will do that hopefully soon. It’s a room that we don’t use often, but I wish we did because I love how it turned out.
In the meantime, enjoy this mini tour and see the full thing here.
PS for those of you who are interested, there is a reader requested post up on my Motherhood page with a ton of great dress options to wear to your baby shower.
Where do you get your decor inspiration?
All over the place! I love looking at decor photos on Pinterest and on other blogs. One Kings Lane does some great home tours that I love as well. I always keep an eye out when I’m visiting new friends or even cute hotels for inspiration. Basically… everywhere!
What is your favorite room in your house?
Probably my office. It’s my little sanctuary, and there is a whole lotta pink! I had to move it to a different room because the old office space is now the nursery. I made it into more of a “cloffice” (closet/office) because we don’t have enough closet space. You can see a little peek of it here.
As you can see it’s also Boots’ favorite room. His main bed is in there and he likes to sit with me while I work. Best coworker ever!
Where do you get all of your ginger jars?
I get this question so often, it’s kind of insane. When I see one that I love, I buy it. I have a few from Williams Sonoma like this cute little one which is a current favorite for peonies and only $65. This one that I found from Target is similar and only $29. One Kings Lane also has an awesome selection. In fact, here is a great one for $49! Uh oh, now I might need that… I have this square lidded ginger jar ($31) that’s great for flowers on my coffee table (you can see it below) from Wayfair.
While the options I shared are more affordable, they can cost hundreds of dollars, so sometimes it takes some hunting to find one at a good price.
What do you plan to change once you have a baby/toddler?
I’m not sure yet. Everyone who comes over says I need to toddler-proof the house, so I guess I’ll find out what that means soon enough! I’m guessing that the glass coffee table in our living room will have to be retired for a while and we’ll definitely need a gate at the top of the stairs.
Beyond that, no clue… but feel free to chime in! I’ll take all the advice I can get over here.
Let me know if you have any other questions about how I decorate and I’ll answer them in the comments below! Gray Malin is having an amazing Memorial Day Sale: 25% all all La Dolce Vita prints through Memorial Day.
