hello sacramento street readers! i’m victoria smith of sfgirlbybay, and i’m very happy to filling in for caitlin whilst she’s off get married and enjoying her honeymoon! today, i like to offer you some eclectic design inspiration and ideas, that also encourage individuality and unique, personal style, because let’s face it, your home should be a direct reflection of you.
i hope my home does that, and i am constantly changing it up to suit my moods and changing tastes, but no matter what this room looks like, i usually find myself drawn to hanging out in my living room. the bay windows bring in an amazing abundance of light and lovely views of the city’s victorian landscape. and, i quite like cozying up and reading or blogging on my laptop with a warm fire going in the unusual copper-faced fireplace.
i keep my decor palette and main furnishings white, and then as the seasons, or my tastes change, i find the white easily interchangeable with accessories, pillows, throws, and artwork in any color scheme that’s currently grabbing my attention. i mix up basic white pieces with mid-century modern, vintage, and a bit of what i like to call ‘industrial chic’ pieces in metal and natural woods – mostly scoured from the flea market. and while the white sofa may not seem practical, it is slip-covered (from room & board), so when it soils, i just toss the slip covers in the wash and they come out like new. thanks for allowing me to share one of my favorites spaces with you today! i hope you’ve found some fresh ideas.
