When I began building my dream house I’d regularly reference the beautiful homes featured in Better Homes & Gardens. I’d snap pics and tear sheets to include as inspirations for what I would one day call my very own space. To have the tables turned and actually be the one inspiring others with my home is surreal, to say the least. The fact that Lexi and Harley got in on the action makes this feature one of my favorites. Lexi propping her arm up on the arm of the sofa is pretty much the best thing ever, right? She is so hilarious.
I have gotten lots of questions in my “Ask Jules” inbox about my home décor, but the room I’m most excited about (currently) is my kitchen! I’ve been having some super fun dinner parties and I have found myself actually looking forward to cooking dinner as much as possible. It’s amazing what a difference having a space you love can make! Check out this question from Kellyanne and get the scoop on all my kitchen secrets below.
Who says sponges have to be boring? Why should all kitchen knives be black? I say go bold or go home with splashes of bright hues in unexpected places! It’s a small but special touch that gives something ordinary an exciting appeal.
Which kitchen accessory are you most into?
When it comes to clothes and accessories, I’ve got a pretty good idea as far what my personal style looks like. I can see a cute top from across the store and know, “That’s me!” But when it comes to furniture and decor, I’ve learned that my tastes are a little bit all over the place. As I prepare to decorate my new house, I’ve been collecting and collaging images to get a concise idea of what style best represents me. In fashion, designers often create a mood board to decide what themes, shapes and colors will inspire their upcoming collection. I’ve decided to take a note from the fashionistas and create a vision board to help navigate my plans for my casa.
Vision, inspiration or mood boards are a good practice for everyone whether you’re decorating, designing or not. Besides being fun, it’s a way to get in touch with your creative side and understand your likes and dislikes. It’s important to discover these things because it’s personal and what makes you, you. I’d like to not only walk into my closet, but also my home and think, “That’s me!”
