What inspired you with the design?

Literally I like a lot of different styles so if I find one major piece I like and I have a spot for it, I design the whole room around that piece. I go to pinterest type in for example Green bed and go from there until I find a pic or two I like.  I draw inspiration from those pics and viola.

Again I started with the beds for each room, then I went to Pinterest and searched the style of bed and looked at all the pictures that had them in it until I found a style I liked.  That is what prompted the striped throw blankets in the boys room.  Sometimes if I get stuck on something, for example in the boys room I was stuck on what color the dresser should be.  I will look at Pinterest as well to see what color dressers are paired with the color bed I have…it can kind of get overwhelming because I end up seeing a lot of stuff and going in a lot of different directions, but eventually I stop and say “okay that looks good.”  I mean I can Pinterest all the way to dresser display boys room…for ideas lol!!!

In all of my searches I always added bohemian or modern.  I love searching for rooms that mix modern and antique.

Matt and Tish Photography3Matt and Tish Matt and Tish Photography1Matt and Tish Matt and Tish Photography12Matt and Tish Matt and Tish Photography9Matt and TishWhat is your favorite room in your home and why?

The playroom because at this moment it is everything I want it to be and I don’t think I need to change one thing.  I am ALWAYS changing things up…the house is already different since the shoot.  The Day Dream Believer piece is now in our Family/Living room and we have new pictures above our bed…lol!

My antique Rugs!!!  If I could I would have one in every room.  I love them so much but it is pretty hard to find a good size affordable one.

Pick one expensive or quality piece per room and build around it.  Search Pinterest for pics of that piece for ideas and the fill in with Home Good, Target, Pinterest and even Goodwill finds.
