There is something relaxing about decorating. Of course it is expressive and should be a reflection of your taste, but it is also therapeutic to scroll through sites and see different patterns, textiles, and inspiration.
As a new apartment renter and enjoying the first time sharing a home with my boyfriend, I’m really enjoying discovering my taste combined with things I think he might like (or at least, not mind). It’s been fun investing in pieces and creating a place for us that we both find welcoming and comfortable.
It has also been a fun challenge with combining what we like. He definitely is more art deco, appreciates classy sports memorabilia (as we have a lot up already), and prefers the more all around masculine look. I, on the other hand, am a bit more funky. I love classic, rustic, and eccentric things rolled up into one! I like mixing art and colors with trendy and also vintage pieces. I really just favor the look of different styles artfully put together, creating something new and aesthetically pleasing. I’ve never been a matchy-matchy type of person and like the idea of playing while I create. I am excited to share what we have done so far though, our kitchen is about done! Stay tuned!
Dot & Bo is one of my favorite places to shop for home décor as they offer things that work for both Jason and me. I also enjoy putting together ideas for places that I would one day like to style or decorate, seeing as I don’t have a ton of rooms in my apartment, I like to play I lot with ideas that I can one day do.
In spirit of this, I put together a little family room that would definitely feed the more eclectic soul but also has a good mix of masculine and feminine notes that would likely please both parties! All pieces are from the Dot & Bo collection! Check it out!
