Hello Sadie + Stella readers! I love being here and giving you a peek inside my very own home. I'm an Interior Designer and I LOOOOOVE designing and decorating all rooms, but my favorites would have to be the ones inside the walls of my home because I get to do them the way I want!
4 years ago, my boyfriend purchased a home and the family room and dining room looked like this before he moved in:
Wall paper border, lovely collection of plates and cups above the sofa, beautiful brass ceiling fan in the dining room, windows covered in fluffy valances...all had to go!
About a year later, when I moved in, the place looked like this:
Freshly painted walls, granite fireplace surround, cushy leather sofas (thankfully he didn't go with black!), Versailles travertine floors, updated recessed lighting...all a great foundation!
I like minimal decorations and decor, but this was just too stark even for me! So I had to spruce things up a bit:
Over-sized artwork in an unexpected shape, two-toned drapes, quatrefoil patterned rug, extra seating with a non-matching rocking chair, sofa table with accessories, ambient lighting and a handful of houseplants...definitely does the trick!
My boyfriend deserves much credit, since he gave me great bones to work with by opening up the walls and remodeling the entire interior of our home before I even knew him, leaving me no chance to get my hands on it! All it needed was a woman's touch!
Thank you, Lindsay(S), for having me over and letting me give you all a look inside our home.
