Describe your home's style in 5 words or less: Modern, bohemian, global, clean lines.
How long have you lived here? We moved in in April of this year, and have slowly finished decorating it.
What is your favorite room and why? My favorite room is the kitchen! I love the classic white beveled subway tile and the fun patterned cement tile under the island!
If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? I would love to have an enclosed bonus room for my boys to run around in. I also wish we had a fireplace!
What's the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? My favorite piece I recently bought was a cool rattan chair from World Market! I've always wanted a hanging chair, but didn't want to put a hole in the ceiling! This chair has the style without the commitment of a hole!
Any advice for creating a home you love? My advice is to add pieces slowly that you find and love! Save for high-end pieces and snag them when they're on sale! Add some cool, inexpensive handmade pillows, and only buy items you truly love! Don't let it get too busy! If you buy something new, get rid of or sell an existing piece to make room. I always like to keep it tidy too. That always makes it feel better to live in.
