I get a lot of questions here, on Instagram, and often in real life about different decor related conundrums. Sometimes I freak out a little about that because the truth is, I’m not really an expert. I have no degree or formal training in this area. But in my own home, because of an intense passion for contrasts, textures, patterns, fabrics, and furniture arrangements, I’ve grown to develop an eye and a confidence about what to do. Slowly, I’m learning to trust and lean on that confidence when it comes to other people’s homes and questions as well.
I’ve decided to start a series here on the blog in which I answer some of those FAQs and address the issues I frequently run into when I meet someone in their home looking for advice from me about what to do with their space. It will kind of be like my version of decorating school- sharing the way I approach a room, piece by piece. But since I never went to decorating school and my education in that area consisted of Pinterest, a handful of blogs, magazines, and HGTV over the years, we’re going to call it UNschool.
So, welcome to decorating UNschool. Ditch the number two pencils and don’t worry about getting here on time. It’s all about freedom and there really aren’t any rules. We’re just going to talk about things like light fixtures, selecting a rug, mixing and matching fabrics, and hanging curtains. I’ve already made two videos about gallery walls so I’ll probably skip that subject, but please let me know in the comments below if there’s anything you’d like to hear about over the next few weeks!
Looking forward to it!
