STYLING YOU & YOUR HOME | BEST DRESSED NEST

Dressing your home is a lot like putting together a great outfit. These are my styling tips for you and your home. Great design style is easier to create than you might think. There’s no reason why you and your home shouldn’t be the best dressed.

WHERE TO START

Consider building your look around a color story. From soft and monochromatic to bold and bright, a print is one the easiest places to start.

ITS ALL ABOUT THE MIX

Hermes inspired blanket in khaki $53.88.

The best looks are those that are curated with a mix of brands and price points. Pay close attention to construction, fabrics, and design details. If done right, its even ok to fake it until you make it. This Hermes inspired blanket for only $53.88 comes in 12 color combinations.

REPUROSE

A styling tip I always share and use is repurposing items intended for one thing into something else. For example, you can wear a dress as a tunic or put patio furniture inside. Check out some suggestions for your closet in my post Worthy of Your Wardrobe.

INDOOR OUTDOOR

LET’S TALK TEXTURE

It doesn’t matter if its an outfit or your bedroom, adding texture is always a good idea. Texture adds interest, dimension, and movement. Textiles are your friend. Try some faux fur or faux shearling for you or your space. This trend is everywhere.

FINISHING TOUCHES

Finishing touches are the accessories that pull together and outfit or your living space.

GO GREEN

Not adding greenery to a space is like not wearing earrings when you have pierced ears.

These self standing rattan planters really make a statement.

If you can can’t keep real plants alive try air plants. They’re real but impossible to kill. You can nest them on a shelf or in a tray.

GET PERSONAL

Adding personal items sparks joy and adds personality to your look.

Books are always great accessories.
