My interior design style usually consists of light and airy neutrals with small pops of color... I love clean lines with a hint of rustic woods in a space. All in all, I would say that my style is on the minimal side, but most definitely eclectic . I have not renovated my bedroom in YEARS, but I wanted to share a sample of some of the details in my room.
My West Elm headboard is a crisp white (which is sadly unavailable at the moment) with moroccan inspired cutouts. I decided to pair the headboard with the white platform bed to create one, cohesive look.
The upper half of the walls are adorned with Graham and Brown wallpaper (which has been discontinued) and the lower half is the color "Greek Villa" by Sherwin Williams. The two elements on the walls are separated by white trim throughout the room.
I found the small white nightstand at HomeGoods, which is able to hold a few dozen of my favorite books on the two levels of shelving, and various items in the small drawer. I always love to have fresh flowers in my room to breathe some life in the space.
I had a bit of fun with the space in between my two windows. I added the Driftwood Mirror by Urban Outfitters (which has been discontinued) and this mirrored cabinet that I found at HomeGoods, in order to add some different elements and add visual interest.
White window treatments are a must in order to have natural light fill the room! You still have privacy, but the sheerness of the curtains diffuses the light, which compliments and brightens the soft tones throughout the room.
Have a great evening!
For a long time, I have been one to research and read about other’s achievements and follow along with people’s stories. I picture myself in their position, whether it be their hobby or career, but that is where it ends. This is a season of life where I am longing for change within myself.
I want this spark to turn into flame. But see, that has been the issue. I actively want certain things, but there is not enough doing. I desire for my passions to come alive in a way they never have before. Instead of just thinking about doing something, I long to turn my thoughts into something tangible, something that one can either read, see or hold.
I know I will forever be a daydreamer, brewing innovative ideas within my mind. I am okay if this flame starts out small… that is where I actually want it to begin. But, in the end, I am hoping that my creative and curious spirit transforms into a raging wildfire that cannot be tamed.

I have been longing to create a blog for YEARS now, but I was always lost as to where to begin. I had numerous concerns, I was not confident in myself, and I have many, many questions.
"Will anyone read what I write?"
"Will my content be interesting enough?"
"Will readers actually follow along?"
"Do I want my life to be this exposed?"
Over the duration of the past two years, I have been attempting to improve my self- esteem, and how I really see myself as a person. I am more of a reserved and private individual, and while this is not a weakness, the anxiety that is within me affects my life on a daily basis.
All I desire is to be creative, document my life, and do it confidently. I want to be able to look back on my life and know that fear did not come between me and my passions. I want to know that I celebrated myself as a human and dove deep into self-care. I want to know that I did everything that I wanted to do without caring what others think.
When I focus on who I am and my aspirations in life, the trepidation and questions of doubt seem to subside.
So, my blog is finally happening... and I am creating it for me.
