Hello City Farmhouse readers!!! I’m so excited to be here, as a contributor for Jen. I love Jen’s style, and totally connected with her right away when we crossed paths in blog world. Sometimes though it’s not always easy to connect when you are just seeing them through the window of the world wide web. You miss seeing their personality come alive when you talk with them face to face. So before I jump in and share with you design ideas I love, or some of my tips and tricks for bringing any space to life, I wanted to share a little bit more about myself with all of you! I’ve certainly experienced my fair share of misconceptions here in “blogland” if you want to call it that. So allow me to introduce myself, in case, perhaps I am new to some of you!
If we were to meet, first things first, you would be greeted with a big smile, and then most likely a warm hug! I love to hug, not quite sure why, I just do. I love to laugh, and I L.O.V.E. to decorate. I love to talk about paint colors – and get in high decibels when doing so! I love white slip-covered anything. To me it’s crisp, clean but relaxed!
Here’s our living room:
I can always remember having a passion for decorating, from constantly moving my room around as a kid, to creating gallery walls, and vignettes on my walls and dresser as a teen. Today I enjoy creating warm, welcoming spaces for clients, as well as in my own home. When people ask me what my style is, there is always a long pause with a question mark look on my face? Because the truth is I don’t feel I completely fit in one category, which is some what refreshing. I would love to give a solid answer, but not being limited to one certain style gives me flexibility to stretch my creative wings.
I avoid saying “Country” because I don’t decorate with roosters or the color red (which I like the look of very much). I don’t say “Contemporary” because I like to work with a bit too much vintage to fit in there. And I don’t say “Beachy” because while I love starfish, they only come out briefly in the summer, and that’s about it. I’ve said this before, but if Pottery Barn and Country Living had a baby, you would find me! My passion is for people to “Love the Space they Live in”.
