“Our home is bold and colorful with a collection of the things we love,” Stacey-Ann Blake, the founder and blogger behind Design Addict Mom, shares about her Fayetteville, North Carolina, space. “My goal is to inspire others to live out loud colorfully! I believe your space should be a reflection of you, and our home undoubtedly reflects our culture and who we are.”

Blake, who lives with her husband, Andre; three children, Zion, Ian, and Cheyenne; and around a dozen quails, decorated their four-bedroom home with their Jamaican upbringing in mind.

“Color is everywhere in Jamaica — Jamaicans live colorfully, we eat and dress colorfully, the facades of houses are colorful,” Blake writes. “Color is innate to us, so it’s everywhere in our home.”

And it’s not just the bright colors that remind Blake of her Jamaican background; she’s also inspired by nature. Believe it or not, her 10-year-old fiddle leaf fig (named Glory!) has become famous on social media.

The family has lived in the home for 11 years, and it’s seen many DIY projects, including using a stencil to hand paint the porch floor to mimic Moroccan tiles and painting (and repainting!) the walls.

“I truly love all the colors,” Blake shares. “I always jokingly tell people that wall colors have a shelf life of about two or so years here. Every new color that I paint on a wall is my new favorite wall color until I decide it’s time to repaint and try a different color.”
