Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: My home is my safe haven. As a Taurus, my home is my castle and I spend a lot of time here, so I’ve made sure it’s extremely cozy, has good lighting, and overall is a place that grounds me when I’m in it. Since it’s an extremely small space, I pay attention to all the small details of each room so I can maximize its potential.
My home is a complete extension of me and my style. From the colors to the art, I feel 100 percent in love with everything I bring into my home. My style is categorized as mostly bohemian and I’m obsessed with plants; my space is covered in them. I’m also really big on texture and patterns, so I layer that in as much as I can. I gravitate toward Moroccan jewel colors of emeralds, peaches, pinks, and blues to create a super-warm and cozy vibe.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or fewer: A cozy, moody bohemian bungalow.
What is your favorite room and why? Living room. Most of my plants are in here because of the sun, and there is a skylight that shines down in the day. I often take a nap in the sun here. It also overlooks my deck and I can hear the birds chirping. I usually am curled up in the corner of the chaise couch drinking coffee and daydreaming.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Try not to overplay too much. When I start designing a room I pick one thing to design around and then everything else comes together based on that. For example, I knew I wanted a jade green couch so I designed all my colors and decor off this one piece. Also, always buy the art! If you love it, buy it — you can always find a place for it later or swap something out.
