“A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy.” -Juan Montoya
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” -William Morris
“Your home should tell who you are, and be a collection of what you love.” -Nate Berkus
“Be faithful to your own taste–nothing you really like is ever out of style.” -Billy Baldwin
“If you are comfortable in your home, everyone else will be too. That sense of authenticity is what gives a home its soul.” -Courtnay Daniels Hayden
I worry for the day when I have children or pets, because, if my apartment is at all indicative, they will completely take over my Insta feed.
I’ve done my share of decorating spaces, yet for some reason my latest apartment has me feeling much much more proud than any of those spaces. Most lazy mornings have me running around snapping photographs, then mentally chastising myself: no, Chrisy, let’s not put pictures of your house on the internet. Detail shots are my happy compromise.
Details really do make the difference in a space. Whether its woven thatch that you mount on your dining room wall or corkboards that you paint for your kitchen, the little additions are the things that show your style, and communicate about you. Anyone can pick up chairs from IKEA, it’s what you do with them when you’re done that makes the difference.
Maybe someday I’ll do some posts on decorating, with some nice lists, and highly stylized shots. But for the time being, do enjoy the little glimpses into my living room ♥
