Have to share the latest Design Smackdown video’s which highlighted designer Betsy Ginn and Robert Passal. Betsy she says that her style is Vintage Glamour – which spoke to me for my upcoming Christmas decor 2016. 🙂 I know that my sister (and ex-brother in law) would say that my style is contemporary, but ironically I find my home decor style to be quite safe eclectic? haha. That means that some of my elements are routine (my Pottery Barn sofas) and yes my high gloss Ikea shelves would be considered contemporary as well as the old (from marriage) purple chair (which I will eventually replace); but I like to restyle/repurpose as often as I can. Just like when I style/prop I like to find something different each time. I’m sadly NOT a routine person and I redo our home seasonally and most of the time for holidays. (and NO affiliate links here – don’t I WISH, I could use them from both Pottery Barn and Ikea). lol
Now, onto Betsy’s home… she too likes to flea-market! SO me! And I do love her tufted couch. Maybe not as big for me, but I will admit that I do love a tufted couch, and her choice of velvet fabric just adds to that element, right? Note that Robert Passal also uses a tufted sofa, but with a more clean/linen approach. Still amaze… his decor is very structured. But he does add a very ME velvet tufted sofa to the guest room… cute!
LOL – and love how they say that ‘Californians RECYCLE’. Did you get a glimpse of her ‘fun’ (indoor/outdoor) space and that OUTDOOR wrought-iron bed?!! OMG I want that. But yes, it would end up rusting (quickly) after all of our Seattle rain, poor thing would never have much time to stay white.
I found these photos on Robert Passal, love the style/shape of this tufted bed (although I would SO want it maybe in a velvet blue instead) and of course a CHAISE LOUNGE (want)!!
Enjoy the bloopers at the end of the video and I want to know – which do you prefer? East Coast or West Coast Style – OR a little of both (like me)?
Happy Sunday my dear peeps. Just wanted to share a little FUN while I’ve been Pinteresting, peeking and planning my upcoming HOLIDAY DECOR too.
