Hi, my name is Joy and I struggle with designing my own home! ha!
Y’all the struggle is real!
I find it so hard to make decisions for my own home. I think part of that comes from loving some many beautiful fabrics and furniture. However, I know immediately the things I do not like… but there are so many things I do love!
We come across so many talented people in this world via social media and I think it blocks us from really doing what we want in our homes. I know it has for me anyway. I am working hard to find my design esthetic again and creating design I love! I have been in the process of removing things from my home that I do not need or love and trying to figure out ways to use our home differently.
Currently I am trying to figure out how to create a room for our teenage son to go hangout when he has friends over. We are thinking gentleman’s lounge but fun not stuffy. My son wants it to feel cozy and warm and a little rustic. Who does that better the Ralph Lauren!?! My husband has always wanted what he refers to as a “Polo Room” and for me it has to be classic. I am a little scared because I know the walls need to go dark and I need light and bright to function. I want to incorporate build-ins in the space to hopefully display some trophies and art in a cool way. Stay Tuned!
Design I love-
All of these spaces inspire me and I am wanting to push the envelope a bit and go outside of my comfort zone, something I rarely do with my home. Fingers crossed I can pull off something great…then again its mostly paint, right?
