Our mothers are many things to us. They are our teachers, mentors, protectors, best friends, worst night mares and when the chips are down, we know they will always be there for us. Offering a sympathetic ear, excited encouragement and a fountain of wisdom.
My mother had excellent taste and an eye for design. We moved around a lot but our home always felt comfortable, stylish and contemporary for its time.
In the photo above, it's obvious she wasn't afraid of colour. The sofa becomes the pop of interest in the room and she balances with neutrals
Wallpaper is a great way to add mood and atmosphere to a space. I love it as an accent wall in the Master bedroom behind the bed. Powder rooms are also a great spot to wallpaper and the are typically small so keeps costs low. I love a unexpected bold print!
Our dining room felt like a cozy cabin!
Another tip from my mother was, when buying a chair, make sure it looks just as good from the back as it does from the front. Find a option that is comfy as well as beautifull.
My mother is no longer with us but her influence is very much alive in me. I appreciate beauty in form and design because of her. I'm fearless and believe in myself because of her. I love and miss her.
Happy Mothers Day to all! ❤
