How did you first become interested in home styling and decor? What are your favorite sources for inspiration?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been interested in home decor and making spaces “pretty,” but it wasn’t until I bought my house that I recognized how passionate I was about it. I read a ton of blogs and scour Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration. Two of my favorite sources of inspiration at the moment are Jamie Meares’s I Suwannee and Emily Henderson’s Style by Emily Henderson.
You also started your blog, Spray Paint and Chardonnay, after becoming a homeowner. What were your original intentions for the blog and how have they changed since it first began?
I originally started blogging as a creative outlet and a way for me to show my family and friends, “Hey! Look what I spray painted!” When I started, it was more of just a journal and I think maybe all of five people read it. It wasn’t until about a year and half ago that I really started to take blogging seriously and realized that it was something that I wanted to turn into a business. And now all of my photos are taken on a DLSR camera and edited in Photoshop as opposed to the iPhone 3 I used when I first started.
