Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: My husband, Jordan, and I—and our dog, Winslow—live in a one-bedroom, one-bathroom duplex in the Lower Greenville neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. When we first got married nearly three years ago, we experienced a clash-turned-fusion of home decor styles.

I was rustic glam/modern farmhouse, and he was—well anything he could find on Craigslist or from his parents’ basement. Soon, we curated our style together. We found as a couple, we appreciated texture, curved lines, and art that spoke to our nostalgic nature.

Our bedroom! And Winslow being a little too comfortable in front of the camera.

Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Plant-lady, mid-century cozy eclectic.

One more picture of the dining room; I love it so much.

What is your favorite room and why? Honestly, it depends on the day. However, I (consistently) love our dining room. It has plants and pieces from our travels and trips to IKEA. I feel calm there. It’s where I feel most at home.

Our shared office space in our bedroom. My very own emoji paintings!

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last thing I bought for the home was a simple canvas print from Target. I hate to be cheesy, but it reminds me of “Stuck With U” by Ariana Grande—the quarantine anthem.

My former farmhouse style sneaks in with the kitchen.

Any advice for creating a home you love? I do believe in the following elements for every room: flowers (fake is fine), a unique piece not from Target (no shade), and a plant (again fake is fine). Other than that, HAVE FUN! YOU have to live there. Decorate it so that you smile while stumbling into the kitchen to make coffee.

Bathroom's vanity. Been very into skincare this quarantine.
