Hey hey heyyyyyyy, it's Fat Albert! JK it's Phoebe ;)
I wanted to take part in Friday Introductions but I wanted to do it here on my blog for anyone who is new to my page!
SO AWAY WE GO....
As you've probably come to realize, my name is Phoebe! I am a Jesus loving, decor obsessed, free spirited, beach crazy, devoted wife to my husband who I have been married to for TWO YEARS (May 17th) and have known for 6 years now!
I started this blog about a year ago as a little hobby to document some of my projects. It wasn't until the beginning of fall that I realized I wanted to take my blog to a new level and become more serious about it! I still am not where I want to be when it comes to blogging, but I am learning and growing each and everyday in hopes to make my blog better in any way I can.
I am a firm believer in understanding your tiny decor person that is living on the inside of each and everyone of us. TINY DECOR PERSON? Yes, you read that right heheh! I believe that we all find MULTIPLE design & decor styles appealing and beautiful but they aren't what we belong having in our home. I found farmhouse and industrial very beautiful so I thought that is what I belonged decorating my house in. With time I realized I was not happy with our home, I was not at peace, I did not feel like it was MY HOME.
I took a step back from TRYING to put together a home and I asked myself:
What is my lifestyle?
What did I grow up loving?
Who am I as a person?
My lifestyle is easy breezy. I go with the flow. I live life at a slower pace.
I grew up at the beach. We rode our bikes to the beach everyday in the summer. I spent all day in my bathing suit getting brown as a berry. I brought sand home with me and tracked it all the way into the bathroom where I would wash the ocean off of me. I am a beach baby despite now being in inland NC. I did not grow up on a farm. I did not live even close to a farm. Well actually we had a little farm 2 towns over where you could feed goats and a cow hahah.
I am a laid back person. I am not fancy or elaborate. I like sleeping in, being comfy, going without makeup with my hair up.
FARMHOUSE DID NOT DESCRIBE WHO I AM!
Now, I know the TINY DECOR PERSON inside of me is a little California Bohemian (wearing cute gladiator sandals) with a flare of vintage goodness! I like light and airy spaces with BOLD accents. I like bringing the outside in in the form of PLANTS. LOTS OF PLANTS. I like natural elements and different textures. I like cultural pieces. I like rare pieces. I like unique pieces.
I encourage every person who is even remotely interested in decorating their home to take a step back and find who their inner TINY DECOR PERSON is. It will save you time, money, and sanity!
Thank you for coming to my corner of cyber world! I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me, friend.
