How sick are you guys of hearing about how I’m moving soon? Well don’t worry, it’s happening soon and then I can get to work on numerous home DIY’s that I know you all love! I finally found a place to call my own and I can’t wait to decorate it.
I have been reading a lot more about personal style and how your home should reflect that in order to make it feel more like your own space. Take a look into your closet and look for patterns. I, for one, own a whole lot of white, pink, soft blues, and army greens. These soft colors, along with my love for mid century pieces, lend themselves well to a California style living room.
The elements that make up a California style living space include:
- Mid century inspiration for clean lines, low profiles, and tailored furniture.
- Natural items like woven baskets and fresh plant life.
- Light and bright spaces with color schemes taken from nature.
- A layered and textural approach for decor like curtains, rugs, and pillows.
- A less is more mentality.
To create this calming and relaxed space, I’ve created a mood board for inspiration. By collecting all of the items together in one place, it is simpler to create a vision and determine what works together and what doesn’t.
