Feminine Home Studio with a Touch of Vintage Glamour

Get ready for another great edition of Bloggers at Home! I'm pleased to have had the opportunity to chat with Jennifer of Pretty Little Details blog, and today she is welcoming us into her newly designed home studio. I love Jennifer's exploration of fashion trends on her blog and her fun an feminine aesthetic. I'm excited to see the inside of this fab blogger's studio space.

Jacquin: Tell us about your blog, Jennifer!

Jennifer: Hi everyone!  I’m Jennifer Ashley from Pretty Little Details a fashion & lifestyle blog where I share my personal style, as well as a fresh mix of diy tutorials, beauty tips and inspiration for stylish living!  Today I’m sharing a sneak peek into my home studio! 

Jacquin: How would you describe your decorating style?
Jennifer: Like my personal style, my decorating style is both feminine and eclectic.  I love to add pieces into a room that have a story or have personal meaning to me. Refurbished vintage pieces (like this dresser!) also add so much character into a space.  Our new home is inspired by the apartments we saw during our recent trip to Paris.  Parisians know how to effortlessly layer new and old pieces to create a perfectly styled space. The weathered painted brick & ornate dresser we chose are reminiscent of design details frequently seen in french apartments. 

Jacquin: What is your favorite thing about your home studio?

Jennifer: I love that my home studio is a space that is really functional.  The double curtain rod lets me adjust how much light I let in during photoshoots and the oversized desk helps me stay organized when I have multiple projects in the works.  Because I’m in the process of launching my first jewelry collection (the full details will be shared on Pretty Little Details next week!) finding storage for all of the jewelry was a big deal.  Luckily, this vintage dresser worked perfectly in the space and gave me extra room to keep most of my current stock together in one place.

Winner of Fox's Home Free Show Gives Us A Look Inside Her Home

Aidah recently had the experience of a lifetime when she and her husband competed for and won a house on Fox's competition reality show "Home Free". Congratulations Aidah! Aidah also writes a creative lifestyle blog called Aidah's Creative Life incorporating DIY, modest fashions, and great recipes. She has a passion for creative living and interior design, and she's even a Metalsmith. One of her favorite things... whipping out the torch to create jewelry with silver and copper. This home tour features Aidah's lovely home, which is filled with special design touches. Thanks for welcoming us into your new home, Aidah.

Aidah's favorite blog post thus far...

My favorite blog post is actually my latest post from my Pay it Forward Friday series. I discuss giving to the needy with signs and those that ask for assistance. The post was really a reminder for myself but one that I hope inspires others.  You can read it here

Aidah's favorite place...

My favorite space in the home is hands down the kitchen. The cabinets in front of the windows are a unique feature that allows a lot of light into the space, which is always a great thing. The blinged out hardware is another reason why I spend a lot of time in this space.

Aidah's DIY creation...

The artwork in the master bedroom is a DIY that I did that uses wood planks and old tools. I was inspired by the industrial revolution and the move from the farming age to the Industrial Age.  

Loving the decor selections? You can shop the look!

1. Wood Hairpin End Table - World Market
2. Stella Pillows - Pier 1 Imports
3. Everett Foyer Table - World Market
5. Gold Threshold Bar Cart - Target 

Stop by and say hi to Aidah over at her blog, Aidah's Creative Life.

When Furniture Combines Art and Storytelling...

Designer Emily Henry of Millicent Furniture- Photography: Jen Judge

A special piece of furniture can add an unexpected beauty to your home while telling a warm and welcoming story. New Mexico furniture designer, Emily Henry of Millicent, is a creator of this special kind of furniture. 

Emily's furniture is artistic and natural while utilizing unique narrative carvings to tell a story to everyone who lays eyes on it. What I like most about Millicent's furniture designs is that each piece invokes a fine art feel along with a modern nod to nature.  With every piece being a work of art in itself, Millicent's furniture cannot help but capture your attention.

When art and storytelling combine with design, the results are truly magical.  Millicent's furniture designs are absolutely spectacular and truly unique. It's furniture with soul. I look forward to seeing what whimsical narratives are shared in Emily Henry's future furniture creations.
