Name: Charisse
Location: West Allis, Suburb of Milwaukee, Wisconsin

My Apartment is 1250 square feet. I cannot paint — it is basic white. Everyone who comes over comments on how I was able to make it a home (even those who live in high end big houses). 90% of my furniture is from Craigslist, 5% from second hand stores and 5% new but clearance.

I have repainted, reuphostered, restained just about every piece of furniture in my house. Mind you, before this I had never reupholsted a thing. I got my inspiration from Elle Decor, Decor, House Beautiful, Country French Mags and Rate my Spacers. The living, dining and kitchen are what I call Eclectic French, with red being the primary color. I transformed my master bedroom into the den with a more ethnic look using warm copper and chocolate as the color. In my bedroom I decided to go with all ivory with just a touch of rose, the style being Romantic Country. Yes, I like every part of my space to reflect a different part of my taste. I am very eclectic!

Thanks, Charisse !
