I am so excited to announce my contribution to Blog Trends newest venture – Blog Trends Magazine! This first issue is a sample to give readers an idea of what to expect in future issues. Take a look and see how I incorporate my personal style into aspects of my home in 3 ways.
Color blocking and mixing bold colors is a major trend right now in the world of fashion. This trend translates very well in home decor. For my office, I chose three colors I really love together (mint green, citron yellow, and poppy red); I painted some old frames turned cork boards and shelves for the main wall in the room.
REPURPOSE: Turn something old into a new and exciting piece that shows your style.
I love thrifting and reinventing items to make them new again. Both this dresser and these pants were thrifted. The dresser got a paint job including a stenciled on pattern and some mixed vintage hardware. It now has a new and very important purpose as my jewelry armoire! The pants were part of a not so stylish 2 piece suit that just needed a quick cuff and some fun accessories.
TEXTURE: Mix textures to create visual interest in an outfit as well as in your home.
An all neutral outfit or space does not have to be boring. I like to mix neutrals in my outfits with different textures or finishes, such as leather, lace, and metallic, then add colorful accessories. The same goes for a space in your home. I have neutral silk, lace, and fur in my accessory nook, and, well, the accessories do the rest. My mom’s dog decided to join me in this shot, fitting in just perfectly!
Hope you have enjoyed a peak into my home and are inspired to incorporate your own sense of style into your living space! I look forward to contributing more to Blog Trends Magazine, so make sure you follow them to keep up with future issues!
