If you’re following me on Twitter, you would know that I have been decluttering for the last few weekends now and our home is more organized and spacious. I thought I’d spruce up the place a bit and give it a minor makeover.
Since I’m not an interior designer, my home design process is very much like a fashion stylist — I accessorize and layer textures to bring a space together the way I would style a look.
La “Maison Epperson’s” decorating style is all about “glamfun” — eclectic mix of furniture, a touch of luxury, lots of art, and interesting home accessories.
Moodboard: It’s a mad, mad, mademoiselle world!
Score: Chic throw pillows that channel the French grain/flour sacks
I absolutely adore old French grain sacks but my gosh, they’re expensive! Look what I found at Our Home:
Decorative throw pillows are like jewelry when placed on couches as they enhance the look of the furniture.
Tip: One of the easiest way to change the look of your couch or the look of your living room for that matter is change your throw pillows. They are a terrific way to tie a room together, plus affordable too.
Even my dahlin’ Dylan looks good next to the Our Home throw pillows! Haha!
Score: French style damask and gingham placemats
Tablescaping is probably one of my favorite things to do at home. If I’m not styling celebrities or working on fashion editorials, I’m creating different looks with our tableware or on our coffee table.
To keep within my French style décor, I also got some lovely placemats and table napkins from Our Home.
Tip: Mix and match prints
Bonjour! Brunch set-up
Score: Chic black and white curtains
You may come to realize over time that I do fancy black and white when it comes to interiors.
Tip: Curtains are like clothing for your windows — whether it’s a little black dress, a cocktail dress for your living room, or a simple curtain for your dining room — you need to try it on. Buy two panels or a few yards of fabric first (make sure to ask about the return/exchange policies of the store) and hang them up to see if they work with the look of your place.
Score: Decorative ceramic figurine
Home accents such as decorative figurines add personality to one’s home.
Just like some people name their yachts and guitars, I name my ceramic figurines because not one decorative animal or figurine should live with me at home without a name. LOL
Giving your home some minor makeover can really make all the difference. You don’t need to spend much to create a stylish interior all you need is some creativity and a whole lot of fun!
Happy home, happy life!
