We are strong believers that beautiful surroundings are an important part of living every day intentionally. While we love sharing our projects, photo tours, and interior inspiration in our little corner of the internet, there’s nothing that makes us happier than seeing how our mission of making life more beautiful translates to your homes! Our hope is that this space inspires you to experiment with and identify your interior style while learning a few tips and tricks along the way.

This week, we sat down with our in-house styling team to talk about foolproof styling tricks that breathe life into any home, big or small. 

After years of styling an array of projects across the country, our styling team has developed a few trade-secrets that they always have up their sleeves to revamp a space simply and quickly. Today, we’re sharing their top five tips with you! 

Scroll through these inspiration photos for some ideas on how to elevate your space. 

Tip No. 1 – Merge function with beauty

“No matter the space, I always use some type of storage solution that’s both functional and beautiful.” – Kristine Metcalf, lead stylist.

Tip No. 2 – Bring the outdoors in

“Adding a plant is my go-to when styling a shelf and something’s not quite right” – Jen Paul, stylist.

“You don’t need to put together a complex arrangement. You can go to your local market and grab something that will look really pretty and natural in a great vase. When it comes to plants, I would say always invest in faux greenery; you’ll use it over and over. ” – Kristine Metcalf, lead stylist.

Tip No. 3 – Collect with color

“While it’s important to keep books you love within reach, consider the colors of the books you keep on display. A lot of times, we’ll take covers off of books for a more neutral look. It’s all about being mindful.” – Jen Paul, stylist.

Tip No. 4 – Diversify your shapes

“Never be afraid of objects. They are pieces to invest in, I think. They can really balance out a space or a built-in like nothing else can.” – Kristine Metcalf, lead stylist.
