In conversation with...Kelly Day from This Is My Homestyle.
I love Kelly's style, so I am so thrilled that she agreed to answer a few questions!! You are likely to know Kelly as a small business owner, Lala Loves Decor, making decor for the home, I am lucky enough to own two name signs made by Kelly, the boys love them! I have always found Kelly's accounts incredibly inspiring, and her home is so beautiful and it must be such a calming space to live in. Each room uses soft tones and gorgeous furnishings. If you are a pink lover then read on...this is for you!
Tell us a little about yourself? Tell us a little about your brand and why you began?
What trends inspire you? Do you follow trends?
I like to be aware of the trends but I don't particularly follow them. I've avoided the trend for dark walls because I know it's just not for me, as much as I love it in other peoples homes, I personally like brighter interiors and I'm attracted to pastel shades, they make me happy!
I'm inspired by the back to nature trend, I love adding wooden pieces to my home especially rattan and the more plants the better, anything botanical goes!
When decorating, where do you look for inspiration?
Instagram, Pinterest, Fashion, Nature, anywhere and everywhere basically!
What is your favourite item or keepsake from your kids room that you will keep for years to come?
Their wardrobe. It was a second hand buy from my local antiques shop called @franklinsinteriors It's a really good quality piece of old furniture, which has been painted for a contemporary look. I love to mix vintage with new.
What is the biggest investment piece in your kids room and why?
The bunk beds from @madedotcom they weren't the cheapest bunkbeds on the market but I really like the modern scandi design and they're really well made.
Favourite bit of your kids room?
Their reading area. We're a big fan of kids books, I can't resist a beautiful looking book, a piece of art in it's own right. I like to display the prettiest ones on ikea picture ledges, they add pops of colour to the wall, and of course they're educational, so I don't feel guilty buying them!
