Now, you all know my fascination for interiors. So when Modani furniture approached me to create a mood board using their product (+ a few extras) but my style, I wanted to jump at the opportunity! They have GREAT modern pieces and are located in all major cities, including Miami! The design speaks for itself! I would totally buy every item I used to style this virtual room. I am especially in love with the wooden, floor lamp and sleek sofa. You can check out the whole collection of sofas here.
- Budget for what you want, DIY what you can’t afford.
Example: the dining table I wanted was over $1000, so I took a stance and called in reinforcements to DIY the beauty. Art can be easy if you’re up for it, and not critical. Grab a glass of wine, some company, and the basic art supplies and go to town girlfriend! I love the way Homepolish designers master the balance between chic and simple. Find all my DIYs here – from chair upholstery to painting kitchen cabinets!
- Nature in when you’re styling your space
If you have the sunlight and airflow (Say NO to gnats) bring in a Fig Leaf, or an herb garden in your kitchen window. These are not only low maintenance, but they are high impact! I like to keep greenery or fresh flowers on my dining table too; but I have a HUGE wooden table that demands attention. Haven’t seen it? I built it with my dad and you could too thanks to my detailed DIY post! If plants inside is not an option decorate your windows from the outside with planters and potted plants so you can see the plants without dealing with water stains, dirt spill over, bugs, etc.
The bronchitis of homes are bland walls with no personality. If you have ANY free space on your walls ponder what a little collection of photos or abstract art might look there; or perhaps one or two large statement pieces. That is not to say that any free space should be filled! Think of the potential though!! If you signed a lease for longer than 2 months it is worthwhile putting inspiration up, life comes in through your eyes, ears, and mouth. What are you feeding your eyes? Find East + Mia gallery wall inspiration in the shop, and photography can now be purchased in the Society6 shop (while I’m studying abroad).
