Creative Loft: The Plan with Houzz

A few weeks ago, I rolled out the inspiration for my creative loft space. The past month we’ve been busy, sourcing items, and prepping for our last phases of change. Our custom 8 foot desk has been installed and we absolutely love it. Today we’re partnering with Houzz and sharing our plan behind the design.

Dreaming of A Creative Loft

Over the past few months our townhome has gone through some changes. It’s the first time I’m living in Redding and have my own room. I can’t tell you the freedom this shift holds. We’re still figuring out things for the fall, but are loving having a dedicated space. Once I knew I had my own space, there was something that I longed for. I was ready to have an 8 foot desk back in my life.

Simple Styling: Bathroom Shelves

When it comes to styling, I’ve become slightly obsessed. Whether it’s the perfectly laid out Instagram photo, prepping for a shoot for the blog, or providing art direction for a shoot for a major brand, I’ve found that styling is the essence of creativity, layering, color and texture. I have Pinterest boards filled with styled images, gorgeous flat lays, and well thought out interiors. If styling is done well, it can take an ordinary space and with a few touches make it look absolutely extraordinary.

As I looked to the main bathroom it was time to refresh the space. We purchased this amazing set of shelves locally from @desertsedgeco and hung them above our towel rack. I thought it was the perfect pairing. Keeping the pine shelves somewhat raw by sealing them with paste wax, placed above our Pendleton towels from the National Park collection.

Spring Wreath DIY

It was time. Our winter pine wreath had sat on the front door for far too long. It was time to welcome in light blooms, neutral feathers, and something fresh as guests entered our home. Using a coupon and some artificial blooms from the dollar store, this wreath is the perfect note of spring for under $10.

Before + After: Farmhouse Table

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared anything about our home since we moved in August. It’s been a busy few months of DIYs, sourcing furniture, thrifting, and hanging pictures. Our little townhome is one we have come to love and each piece in it has a story. Whether our furniture was found on the side of the road (Wait until you see that transformation!) found at the Goodwill, or found for great deals at big box stores, our home is full of pieces that feel like it has a soul and will be loved for years to come. My roommates and I only had a few pieces that we accumulated since our move to Redding and were excited to add some more permanent items to our home. We still have a few finishing touches, but I’m excited to share with you our first Before and After!
