Our home is set back on a semi-wooded lot in the country. I would describe it as a cozy cottage. It was built in 1977 and has so many cool "older" quirks that won me over instantly. I am drawn to earth-toned colors and pretty textures and patterns. I keep the main palette black and white so I can add all of the pops of color I want... because I love color!!
I am a hairdresser, mother of two little gals, wife, artist, and wannabe interior designer. When I'm not doing all the hairs or mothering, I am changing my house in some way or another. My husband is Ross. He's handsome, smart, hardworking, and can build me a table on demand. So that's big. I have two daughters. Vivie is spunky, independent, smart as a whip, loving and trying all at the same time. She is 3. Sawyer is joyous, happy, sassy, full of life and the cutest little tow-head you ever did see. She's 1!
What is your favorite room and why? Our living room was blessed with ginormous floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding our vaulted stone fireplace. It faces the wooded setting that our house sits on. The view is gorgeous and feels at time like we are on vacation! The way the sun filters in at certain times of the day is pure perfection.
What's the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? A bright, bold, and beautiful boho rug from Amazon!
Describe your home's style in 5 words or less: Eclectic cottage inspired by nature.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Don't worry about trends and fads. If you love it, use it. If you love a trend, use it. If you love something "out of style," use it!
Do what reflects your personality and don't be afraid to make bold decisions. Everything can be changed and chances are you will love t!
Thanks, Erin Love!
