Hello 'From My Front Porch To Yours' readers! My name is Brandi and I blog over at DIY and interior design blog Nest of Bliss! 'How I Found My Style Sundays' is one of my favorite series - Pamela is always introducing us to wonderful bloggers with absolutely inspiring homes. So, when she asked me to share my style I was super excited, honored, and a *little* nervous. You see, the truth is I am still working on my style! Our century farmhouse in the country is our very first home and the first place I ever got to redesign. It's been a dream come true and so much fun!
Through the process of making this house a home, I'm finding things that work for me, and things that don't... my style is progressively changing as I figure out what makes my heart feel warm.
There are so many different styles I admire and think are so beautiful... but if something doesn't give me a certain feeling in my heart, it's not right. It's a feeling of comfort, coziness, happiness, nostalgia... a combination of many things. A feeling of a place you want to stay in.
I'm so happy and proud of the renovations on our home. The styles in here that speak to me are very coastal, farmhouse (but of course!), and vintage... I will definitely take these styles with me into my next home, and I love building onto what we've created here.
I have found that spaces mean so much more to me if they are filled with pieces that bring up happy memories. Pieces that are passed down, built, or found on a fun weekend adventure. Do you decorate this way as well?
With the major renovations done, I really started to enjoy decorating the house. I didn't have a lot of items to work with, but I know over time I will develop a collected look that will mean so much to me.
I'm really interested to see how my style continues to change with time & the different places I live in. Living in a farmhouse definitely influenced my design style as I felt it was important to stay true to the character of the home - but I am so happy with how this house has turned out!
Thank you so much for checking out my home! I am so grateful that I was invited here to share my style with you. I would love if you would pop by my blog & say hi - any friend of Pamela's is a friend of mine. :) Have a fantastic Sunday, friends!
