I’ve been spending a lot of time on style for the home since buying my condo last month, and I’ve realized how much I enjoy it – it really is an extension of personal style. So, as a personal (professional) style blog, I thought you may be interested in seeing some of my “home style” as well! Today I thought I am showing you pictures of my bedroom & living room. Stay tuned next week as I’ll be showing home decor “accents” and …drum roll please… my walk in closet. And yes, my walk-in closet is easily my favorite room in my home haha.
Hope you enjoy my bedroom & living room decor as well as my “decor wants”! And- just a reminder- your chance to win a pair of Polette glasses ends tonight at midnight! Hurry up and enter if you haven’t entered yet!
For my bedroom I wanted white & grey as my color scheme. I also wanted to decorate with bright lights as there is no overhead lighting in the room. I went with Marquee letters which serve both as my art work and as a light source. “Upenda”, in case you are wondering, is the Swahili word for “Love” (..well, it is one of them). I lived in Tanzania for a while and learned basic Swahili. I loved my time there and wanted to incorporate those memories into my room. As a die-hard romantic (barf, I know) I had to go with the word love.

For my living room, I wanted to keep the white & grey theme- and add lots of acrylic to keep the small space looking as large as it can be. My coffee table is definitely my favourite piece- I ordered it online and so was worried about what it would really look like, but I am pleased to say it is EXACTLY what I wanted!
My friends and family are extremely important to me, so above my desk I decided to create a gallery wall with photos of all the most important people in life. It makes me happy every time I see it!
