Blog: Katie’s Bliss
What has been your favorite space you’ve lived in? My new apartment as of January 2015!
What is your favorite room in your home? Why? My living Room. It’s sophisticated but cozy. It feels inviting every time I walk in my door thanks to my over sized sectional, numerous throw pillows and shag rug.
What is your personal decorating style? Modern, minimalistic furnishings with pops of color.
What is your Favorite Inspire Q piece? Escanaba Mirrored Night Stands
What is your low-budget decorating tip? If you can’t afford something – DIY!
What was your favorite DIY project? What are few things you learned from it? My gallery wall in my last apartment. Using sheets of paper as placeholders plan out your gallery exactly how you envision it on your wall. This will help you decide on the best arrangement for your space without damaging your wall. For a fun and eye-catching gallery wall use a variety of frames, but for a more mature and sleek vibe pick frames and photos with a similar theme.
What is your most treasured possession? My Christian Louboutin pumps.
What are your sources of inspiration? Pinterest, Tumblr, Home Blogs
What’s the best design advice you ever received? Ever gave? Less it more!
What are your 3 design rules? 1. Small furniture in small spaces 2. It’s ok to mix gold and silver 3. Don’t over theme
Who are your style icons? What do you love about them? Kelly Wearstler & Nate Berkus. Both designers have a unique aesthetic and aren’t afraid to mix modern styles with vintage accents.
What blogs or websites do you visit regularly? Refinery29.com, Glam.com, Whowhatwhere.com, Pinterest.com
