I got the blog post...

Ya'll know I've been raving about the #getsmart @tiltsmarthome blinds. 👏I'm obsessed!
-
-
-
I have to mention another thing I have come to love about these is that I can adjust the blinds from my app according to the kids particular needs. #sponsored -
-
-
For example, our daughter likes to hang out in here and do her nails, read, chat on the phone with her bff.  All the teen girl things. 💅
-
-
-
And if it's scheduled for them to be closed (based on the hot afternoon sun holla temp sensitive blinds)  I can adjust them to open downward enough to give her light while still keeping most of the heat out. -

Teen happy, mom happy, wallet happy 💰 #tilt

LOVE your home. 💖 I create the spaces I do because they make us feel happy, cozy, comforted, relaxed and fun.  Spaces we want to hang out in!

You don't need anyone else's permission to tell you what's right or wrong.  You just need you. Find your style, rock it and own it. 💖

This is unapologetically me, this is us and this is our home. 🏠 Welcome to the party! 😁🤸‍♀️

I'm stoked to share with you that I'm a new #purplepartner embarking on their 100 night trial.  We are a few days in and I've been dying to share this with you! 💜
-
-
-
You can see our youngest little is testing out the mattress, just prior to this photo he was assessing it's "jump" factor.  The verdict "Mom! It's SO squishy and soft! Can I keep jumping puuuhhhllleeeaaassseee?!" -
-
-
Tulip was giving the @purple dog bed a test drive, which she literally spent every moment on until she passed a few days later.  We are so grateful her last days were spent in such comfort and support enjoying this bed. ❤
-
-
-
Now our other pups are enjoying while we get a feel for the mattress!
-
-
-
It's been a bit over a week and I must say we are very impressed! I have lots of back issues while the hubs gets numb arms from side sleeping.  So far this has made a difference in our quality of sleep! 😪
-
-
-
I am really looking forward seeing what kind of longer term usage benefits there might be from this mattress, which is one of the coolest innovations (in my humble opinion) in sleep.  Holla 4" purple smart comfort grid!! And coming from a horrible sleeper that's saying somethin 😁 #lifeonpurple
-
-
-
Hit up my stories where I share the process from delivery to intial impressions!
-
-
-
I'll share my honest thoughts and experiences with you during this 100 night trial so you can make an informed decision on what's best for your sleep! 🛏

Tips to Add Personality to Your Space

home decor, interior design, add personality to your home, barrel, entryway, textures, color

I talk a lot about personality and adding it to your space because it’s uber importante for your home to feel like you!  I’m going to give you some tips on how to do that!  It can be overwhelming to think about when you are starting from scratch or don’t know where to begin so I’m going to break it down easy peasy!

 

art, home decor, interior design, vintage, personality, glass, dresser, bedroom

At the risk of sounding like a broken record I’ma say it anyway…color!  One of the easiest ways to add personality to your space!  Use your favorite color or colors in your decor.  If you want colors but not maja commitment (i.e. painted walls or furniture) colors, use it in your artwork, your pillows, and accessories.  Here you can see a I have a soothing lilac on the walls but a big hit of color in the artwork.  The accessories balance it all out.

 

wood, art niche, home decor, interior design, seafoam, ram, ghost chair, hallway, copper, vases, anthropologie

Play with different types of materials you love.  I am a big nature person so wood is an obvious choice for me to implement in the house.  Just temper your love affair and choose strategic places to use it.  Here I put it in an art niche which completely changes the feel of this hallway!  I also have my love of animals ALL over the house.  This is Bob the Ram, who recently got a makeover with a seafoam color and he looks mighty fab against that wood!  And the pillow looks like 2 of our pups!

 

family room, chesterfield, barrel, copper patina, modern masters metallic effects, vintage doors, elephant, global decor, animals, leather, home decor, interior design, personality

Don’t be afraid to mix and match styles that speak to you.  Go ahead and start small if it makes you nervous, a side table or piece of art that’s a different style than the rest of your stuff. You can see my family room here and I’ve got a touch of it all!  Rustic, modern, classic, glam, global, vintage and industrial.  More of my love of animals is present in here with that little elephant on the right, the deer artwork and the elephant on the fireplace!

 

leather sofa, pink, home decor, interior design, orange lamps, family room, anthropologie curtains, color, personality

Here is a nice shot of accessories.  Accessories offer a perfect opportunity to bring in some personality.  On that back table I have art books both new and vintage and in english and german (a nod to my heritage and my hubs love of the language) a blue (my fave color) inlay box and old blowtorch mixed with my fave orange and acrylic lamps!  Those lamps bring in an element of fun and surprise.

 

texture, bourbon barrel, home decor, interior design, personality, family room

Texture.  I love textures, they give a space a layered feel just like people have layers and different elements or sides to them.  Textures give you an opportunity to express your personality, are you a soft and cozy or a bold and serious texture? (with or without the color).  This is an old bourbon barrel I bought at a local microbrewery after they were finished making beer in it!  (It totally smells awesome BTW!)  We currently have it on it’s side acting as a bench.

 

home decor, interior design, texture, bourbon barrel, industrial sign, personality, family room

There she is in all her stamped glory!  You can see in this shot I have a cowhide rug layered underneath a wool patterned rug.  I did that for visual interest and kept it quite neutral.  I have so much fun and color going on elsewhere I wanted to keep the floor a bit quieter.  This shows how you can use color but it doesn’t have to be on every surface.  Also the textural differences between the bourbon barrel, cowhide rug, wool rug, leather sofa and the metal industrial sign on the wall.  It all ties together and tells you something about the people who live here!  Umm, that we’re big drinkers?!

 

entry, entryway, color, world market, personality, texture, vintage, home decor, interior design, global

This is our entry and the first thing people see when they come into the house so that makes this space extra important.  The rug is colorful and global, the vintage bench on the side came from a local amphitheater and brings in some rustic, as well as some vintage pieces.  You see lots of nature inspired things like the painting, artwork, faux sheepskin and of course some quirkiness with the vintage bowling set.  It’s like the first impression when you meet someone, you get the same experience walking into a person’s home.

 

home decor, interior design, vintage, reclaimed doors, elephant, color, fireplace, family room

This is an up close shot of our vintage doors that I had the hubs attach to the fireplace.  It gives color, texture and visual interest all in one piece.  Of course the elephant is more of our love of animals!

You can try all of these things on a large scale like a wall treatment on down to a small thing like a pillow on the couch.  Adapt them to your level of comfort and your on your way to having some serious YOU in your home! Don’t be afraid to step outside of what you think you should be doing with decor, sometimes by stepping out of that box you find the perfect balance.

Hi Ho Hi Ho on to per-son-al-ity we go!!
