One of my favorite things to do is spend time beautifying my space. I even made it one of my 2105 goals to refine my home style to make my little studio a happy space that I can enjoy to the fullest. I’m going to be sharing tidbits from my redesign here in a new series I like to call “Happy Home”.
When I was a kid, my mama was an interior designer and I used to love to flip through paint samples and fabric books with her at her store, and go with her on jobs to help arrange the furniture in client’s homes. My early decor interested found its way into my childhood bedroom, and I would experiment with different arrangements of furniture and art at my house growing up. Decor has always been another creative outlet for me and I love playing around with things to achieve what feels like a fresh start, even in an old space.
Recently, since getting my iPad and pinning up a storm, I found a few big inspirations. First, I fell in love with Toronto design student Tiffany Leigh’s apartment and couldn’t get enough of the photos of her home tour on The Everygirl. From there I found The Everygirl founders Alaina Kaczmarski’s apartment and Danielle Moss’s apartment super intriguing. All three homes have such a great balance between that eclectic, layered, gathered-over-years style that I crave and the color palette cohesion I felt was really lacking in my place. I have always been a big believer that you don’t need a big space to have big style, and that with small changes you can achieve big results. These girls were doing just that.
