Welcome to my home!
I went to a party Thursday night and met the coolest woman. She said, “I’d rather someone hate my decorating or my outfit than not be able to remember it.” How freeing! Creatively speaking, not that I dress for others or decorate my home for others, but there is a part of me that wants to be accepted and liked. However, I’ve just never been the kind to color inside the box.
On the personal front, I have big news. We are moving in 2 years. It’s official. So I now have a burning desire to share little bits of our home in Atlanta before we leave for Manhattan Beach, California.
I promise there is nothing boring in this little space. Warning,
SO many life lessons from 2017 I wouldn´t even know where to begin. So I’ll just keep it light and talk about my safe way to step outside the box with a street-style inspired look that still incorporates current trends with ease.
Its all about the Texture
In interior design, it’s often said that color is the glue that holds the space together. It seems to me, when learning how to be a stylist, not using color is the easiest way to be on trend but still look chic. In other words, wear all black but create visual interest with different texture. Silk, suede, leather, fur (faux is great), fuzzy sweaters, whatever you choose!
I’m realizing its even more important to understand how food affects my body as I get older. I also don’t have the time or desire to work out for hours anymore, only to be ravenous and eat away all my exercising efforts.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s always a better day when I break a sweat. ALWAYS better (even if just cut on Netflix and do a stretching video on my iPad while I nurse my Madmen addiction) However, at this time in my fitness journey and life, I don’t have to overexert myself in order to feel better.
