Current Design Style


My entire design aesthetic entirely changed when I moved to Portland. I always thought my design style was girly or vintage inspired (Chateau as we like to call it at Anthropologie) but once I started picking out furniture for the apartment, that was the farthest thing from what I gravitated towards! All of a sudden I wanted everything to be clean, white but with pops of color, all of the exposed wood, plants galore etc. etc. I wanted it to represent a cabin in some ways. A place you could cozy up with a cup of tea and read a great book.

It's so interesting how our personal style and design style can be different. I feel like my design style in clothing form would be straight out of Madewell or the menswear trend. I want neutral, earth colors and I want as many pieces of wood as you can find me, pleaseandthankyou. In reality my clothing style is a lot more classic and feminine.

I am currently lusting over a big plant to put in the apartment but I know it can get pricey. Anyone have some recommendations on a place to get a good plant? #help ALSO, how amazing is that "WORK HARD AND BE NICE TO PEOPLE" print??? It's way too pricey for me right now but it's from this amazing store in town, Schoolhouse Electric. I want all of the things from there. I actually wouldn't mind if they just designed my apartment. :) The plant, National Park map and the print are all from there.

What's your design style?
