Your Favorites: Tartan and Sequins


Woohoo, we are returning to our Tuesday series of, "Your favorites". Today I have Julia, from Tartan and Sequins sharing her favorites from her beautiful home! 

*******************

Favorite Room 
My living room is my favorite room because it’s bright and balanced. I went through a variety of plans with my boyfriend prior to moving in and this worked best for the both of us. The style is traditional with what I’d like to think is a touch of southern charm. Plus I got to sneak in a little pink so that makes me a happy camper.

 
Favorite Textile:  
 My favorite textile is actually these pillow covers that I bought off Etsy. Early in my Pinterest days, I came across the pattern and saved it knowing I wanted to do something with it someday. After my boyfriend and I decided to move in together, I designed the entire living room based off the pattern. I just love the vibrant colors and beautiful print. 


Favorite Piece of Art:  
 My favorite piece of art is this Inslee print I just received from my blogging partner Allison. One of our very first and most successful posts was about bracelets. Allison bought me this print as a congratulatory gift. I have it hung next to my bed as a reminder that you can do anything you put your mind to.
 

Favorite Piece of Furniture:
 My favorite piece of furniture is my coffee table. It’s a Craigslist find from several years ago and I’ve held onto it. Its actually very well made and solid wood so its indestructible- which a coffee table should be. Also, I like how the rustic style of the table contrasts with some of my more modern and traditional pieces. It’s all about balance.


Favorite Miscellaneous Item:  
 My favorite miscellaneous item would have to be my faux set of antlers. I bought them for my mom years ago but after she remodeled her home, they no longer worked. I like them because they balance out the more feminine touches like the pillows in our living room 

*************

Isn't her place perfectly happy? I love the meaning behind that gorgeous print. So sweet. And so true.

Make sure to check back tomorrow. I have a VERY exciting sneak peek from a brand new e-boutique opening soon!!
