I am a big fan of creating your own authentic style. Rather than just going with what is trendy...
One way I let my personality shine in our home is to bring in a bit of the unexpected to our seasonal decor in subtle ways. I've long been a fan of quirky animals in decor, so when I found this darling fox and bunny I couldn't resist!
While I love finding style inspiration in the online community, one of my FAVORITE ways to expand and grow more confident in my own style is to study the images of beautiful homes in design books. Holding a book in hand, turning the pages at a leisurely pace is the best! It’s a return to the past, something I learned to enjoy back in the days before we had so much (too much?) inspiration at our fingertips.
Before I begin decorating a new space, I consider how I want our home to feel in every season. I picture our new home feeling like the most inviting charming bed and breakfast hotel in a seaside town. This home on Martha's Vineyard is giving me cozy fall vibes, ideas and inspiration! I hope it inspires you, too.
One of the most enjoyable things for me in decorating is to focus on enjoying the season we're in! Why keep your spaces the same all the time when you can feel inspired with a few simple changes? Last week I brought in some fun elements to our bedroom to give it the feeling of a tropical retreat! Come see!
